Many digestive health issues involve an imbalance of intestinal bacteria. Cycles of dietary malabsorption, bacterial overgrowth, inflammation, intestinal gas and toxin production lead to a variety of symptoms, leaky gut and autoimmune reactions.
Your health depends on the bacteria in your gut
Our body cannot digest certain foods such as resistant starch and various fibers. We depend on a diverse population of bacteria to digest them for us so that our body, in turn, utilizes fats and vitamins produced by the bacteria.
We have over 100 trillion bacteria comprised of over 1,000 species and sub-species in our large and small intestines, creating a healthy ecosystem. When this ecosystem is violated, we experience a variety of symptoms and digestive health issues.
Through dietary changes, behavioral modifications, and supplementation, you can bring your gut microbes into a healthy balance and become symptom-free without drugs or antibiotics.
