DID YOU KNOW THAT ONE ROUND OF ANTIBIOTICS CAN NEGATIVELY AFFECT YOUR GUT HEALTH FOR UP TO A YEAR?
Thousands of types of bacteria live in your gut. Some of them are considered good gut bacteria and some of them are harmful bacteria. The good gut bacteria is essential for healthy digestion. They destroy the harmful bacteria and other micro-organisms and they are also important for producing vitamin K, folate and short-chain fatty acids that lead to a happy healthy body.
When your gut contains too many harmful bacteria and not enough good bacteria an imbalance occurs. This imbalance has been linked to insulin resistance, weight gain, inflammation, obesity, inflammatory bowel disease and colorectal cancer.
Often when you are sick or have contracted a virus you will visit a doctor and as a result are prescribed a course of antibiotics to treat the condition at hand. What most people don't understand is that whilst the antibiotics are necessary for the current issue and are killing off the bad bacteria in your body that is causing the issue, the antibiotics are also killing of your good gut bacteria and leaving your gut health in ruins. Most people also don't realise that it can take up to a year after taking just one round of antibiotics to naturally build up the good gut bacteria again and return your system to a happy healthy state.
WHAT CAUSES GUT HEALTH IMBALANCE?
As shown above antibiotics are a big contributing factor that lead to poor gut health. But what about those of us that haven't taken antibiotics for a long time, what are the things that cause an imbalance?
- a lack of diversity in whole foods and dependance on processed convenience foods in our diets
- a lack of prebiotics in our diet
- drinking too much alcohol
- lack of exercise
- smoking cigarettes
- not getting enough sleep
- high levels of stress
HOW CAN YOU RETURN YOUR GUT HEALTH TO A GOOD BALANCE?
Firstly take a look at your diet and ensure that you are eating plenty of whole foods (organic where possible) and reduce your intake of processed and packaged foods. This will kick start your gut health balance, however it is very difficult to get enough prebiotics strains and probiotic strains from food alone, unless you are prepared to rigorously study your food choices and add a whole bunch of fermented foods into the mix.
This is where my Gut Biome 1 Probiotic supplement really shines. It's a very high dose multi-strain probiotic formula, it contains world class spore forming probiotics (these are rare in supermarket brand probiotics) that really beef up your intestinal immunity. It also contains a very important prebiotic that feeds the probiotics and ensures that they are as effective as they can be.
The other huge difference with my Gut Biome 1 Probiotic is that I have formulated it not only with the highest quality pre and probiotics but also have used delayed release capsules which remain intact through your digestion process until they reach the intestines, where they release the high quality pre and probiotics so that they can be 100% effective, and where you will get the fastest benefit possible.
One bottle of Gut Biome 1 Probiotic contains 50 capsules and because of the high quality ingredients that contain 32 billion CFU you only need to take one capsule a day, so the bottle will last you almost 2 months before you need to repurchase.
Once you have upped your whole food intake and started on the Gut Biome 1 Probiotic supplement focus on your sleep, stress levels and include regular exercise into your routines and your gut health will be tip top in no time.
If you are looking to lose weight, stop feeling bloated all of the time, feel more energetic, strengthen your immune system and start feeling happier in your life, focus on getting your gut health into balance.
