Probiotics & Gut Health

Probiotics can aid in digestion and help maintain good gut health.

Though problems such as gas, bloating, indigestion, diarrhea, constipation and abdominal pain are obvious symptoms of digestion issues, skin problems, brain fog, depression, irritability, fatigue, inflammation and weight gain may also be signs of an unhealthy gut.

Having good gut health can:

  • Increases mental clarity and focus
  • Improves sleep and recovery
  • Boosts your energy levels
  • Reduce gas and bloating
  • Aids with weight loss

An unhealthy gut may have:

  • An imbalanced immune response. Resulting in allergies, autoimmune issues and food sensitivities
  • Inability to produce enough digestive liquids and enzymes. Resulting in indigestion, nutrient deficiencies and sometimes bad bacteria overgrowth
  • A weakened gut lining that allows allergens and bad bacteria toxins to enter your bloodstream, causing chronic inflammation
  • Poor communication with the brain, which can lead to mental health issues, brain fog, depression and anxiety
  • Unhealthy bowel movements. Resulting in constipation, diarrhea and bacteria overgrowth
Probiotics, such a BiOptimizers P3-OM, can help you maintain a healthy gut. It helps to balance the immune response, increase digestive enzymes, strengthen your gut lining, communicate with your brain and promote healthy bowel movements.

Two main strains include:
  1. Lactobacillus - Help you break down food, absorb nutrients and fight off bad bacteria
  2. Bifidobacterium - Often used for diarrhea, constipation and IBS
Probiotics can help to restore your gut lining and aid in building more good bacteria.
