The digestive system is made up of a group of organs that work together to help convert food into energy, and essential nutrients to keep our body healthy. But it’s also home to trillions of bacteria, both good and bad.
Probiotics are the good bacteria vital to our health and that help inhibit the growth of the bad bacteria, while working hard to support a healthy immune system function and a well-functioning digestive system. Taking the right digestive health Probiotic supplement for our needs can keep our system balanced and help prevent issues such as gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea and indigestion.
Symptoms of unbalanced bacterial flora (called ‘Dysbiosis’) include abdominal pain, indigestion, bloating, food sensitivities and more.
The potency (in terms of numbers of CFUs … 30 Billion CFUs per capsule) and its multiplicity of different good bacteria species or strains (10 strains per capsule) in our ‘Digestive Hero Probiotics’TM definitely will promote better digestion of the foods we eat and then increase their absorption in our bodies. Our probiotic formulation will also help regulate and normalize blood sugar levels. The supplement will help us with adverse health issues (as mentioned before) such as gas, constipation, bloating, indigestion, bowel movement and stool state. Our supplement works within our entire GI tract (that is mouth, esophagus, stomach, intestines and colon) and that is why it is also involved in the removal of harmful toxins, bacteria and waste from our body. Apart from optimizing the digestive process, our supplement also helps with weight management, control of appetite, removal of bad (LDL) cholesterol and overall health.
Probiotics and Our Gut -‘The Second Brain’
It is utmost important to understand (and always keep in mind) – when trying to take better care of our health – that our gut (GI tract) directly influences how we feel and even how we think. This happens as it (the gut) is intimately related to our brain since we are in our mother’s womb, and of course, that extremely close inter-dependent mutual relationship remains throughout our life. They relay information back and forth via ‘the vagus nerve’, a physiological (body functioning) route that keeps the brain informed of what’s going on in the gut and vice versa. So complex are the nerve complexes in the gut that it’s sometimes referred to as ‘The Second Brain’, and scientists call this network of gut nerves ‘The Enteric Nervous System’. Not only does the Enteric Nervous System regulate digestion, it may impact brain health as well, and as we mentioned at the beginning of this paragraph, affect how we think and feel.
Accordingly, to gain or regain and maintain good health, we must take extreme good care of the primary factor of gut health, which is the bacterial population that makes its home there. Each person’s intestinal tract is colonized with a diversity of bacteria, trillions of them. Some of these bacteria called ‘Probiotics’ are extraordinarily beneficial because they keep disease-causing bacteria from gaining a foothold and causing infection. They also have a positive impact on immune system function – our body’s foundational disease against infection, disease and cancer.
Probiotics are vital for maintaining gut health, and since what goes on in the gut affects the brain, thus we must make certain that a considerable amount of Probiotics (called CFUs or colony-forming units of good bacteria) always populate out gut, as this will directly affect not only our digestion and overall health but also our mood and how we feel.
