It’s true… You and I are more bug than human.
Research has shown the body is actually composed of more bacteria than human cells! Eeeww.
Actually, it’s not so gross, and quite important. Collectively, these trillions of bacteria are called the microbiome. Most of those bacteria reside in our gut, sometimes referred to as the gut microbiota, and they play multiple roles in our overall health.(1)
We have a symbiotic relationship with these little buggers, and it’s incredibly important that we treat them well…
It’s become common knowledge we need “good bacteria” to help us break down our food and absorb the nutrients. What isn’t so commonly known though is that our microscopic little friends also impact our mood, mental health, immune system, insulin sensitivity, propensity for obesity, and more…
We actually now know there’s a real gut-brain connection in our body:
Our gut microbiota play a vital role in our physical and psychological health via its own neural network: the enteric nervous system (ENS), a complex system of about 100 million nerves found in the lining of the gut. The ENS is sometimes called the “second brain,” and it actually arises from the same tissues as our central nervous system (CNS) during fetal development. In a miraculously orchestrated symphony of hormones, neurotransmitters, and electrical impulses through a pathway of nerves, both “brains” communicate back and forth.(2)
Unfortunately, our gut bacteria are very sensitive and can easily be “thrown out of whack” by poor diet (e.g., excess sugar & alcohol), stress, medications, infections, or toxins (e.g., environmental & personal care products).
This leads to all kinds of symptoms including:
fatigue, food sensitivities, GI problems, autoimmune conditions, joint pain, headaches & migraines, skin problems, concentration issues, asthma, depression, anxiety, behavioral problems, fertility problems, underweight or overweight, adrenal fatigue, liver problems, and nutritional deficiencies.
So, other than limiting the things that throw it out of whack, what can you do to keep your gut healthy?
- Get adequate sleep
- Eat plenty of fiber
- Keep your weight in check
- Avoid antibiotics (when possible)
- Eat fermented foods
- Take a high-quality supplement like Eniva® Probiotic+ Complex*
Eniva’s Probiotic+ is actually a probiotic AND prebiotic complex.
Think of probiotics as fertilizer for good bacteria in your gut. The probiotic introduces the friendly bacteria into your system, while the prebiotic helps give that bacteria helpful nourishment to do their job.(3)
Many types of bacteria are classified as probiotics. They all have different benefits, but most come from two groups:
When choosing a probiotic supplement, make sure it has multiple strains of both categories to nourish the entire “landscape” of your gut.
Eniva’s Probiotic+ is packed with 20 billion “colony forming units” (CFU) – that’s a great dosage providing a lot of bang for your buck. They also take great care in the manufacturing of the capsules to ensure the seals are solid and the contents stay fresh…in this case, alive.
How to Use Probiotic+
Per Dr. Ben, I take Probiotic+ first thing every morning on an empty stomach. I suggest you do the same.
