Nowadays, we ask ourselves if our diet is appropriate for our daily routine and needs since pesticides have depleted the soil.

Here are 5 compelling reasons to take a probiotic supplement:

1. Antibiotic Use: The most common cause of imbalance in normal microflora populations is antibiotics. Because antibiotics aren’t specific in what bacteria they kill, they wipe out harmful and helpful bacteria throughout our system, leaving these territories more vulnerable to organisms resistant to antibiotics.

2. Age: Research shows that beneficial microflora populations steadily decline with age in both men and women. In addition, research has shown an increase in undesirable microorganisms in post-menopausal women.

3. Diet: The typical “Western” diet—high in meat, total fat, animal fat and protein—is associated with reduced populations of beneficial microflora.

4. Not Enough Fiber Intake: Beneficial microflora “feed” on the undigested dietary fibre found in the colon. Diets low in dietary fibre are associated with lower populations of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria in the gastrointestinal tract.

5. Transitional Microflora Populations: Intestinal microflora balance is constantly ebbing and flowing. Research has shown that regular dietary intake of beneficial microflora must be maintained to maintain their higher levels.

Also, one of the most important ways beneficial microflora promote health is by simply existing in large numbers.

Research studies indicate that typical, healthy colonies of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria can help maintain a healthy balance between beneficial and undesirable bacteria.

Fermented foods have been one of the main ways people have gotten enough healthy bacteria for several thousand years. Unfortunately, most diets don’t include enough fermented foods. This is one reason why taking a probiotic supplement is recommended.

In conclusion, looking at our guts and general health is necessary!

Please, I would love to hear from you!
