Your gut flora, also called your microbiome, affects more than just your digestive health. This fascinating, diverse collection of beneficial and pathogenic bacteria also influences your immune response, weight, sleep quality, mood and cognitive function.
To maintain optimal overall health, a balanced microbiome and strong intestinal lining is key. However, many factors today can disrupt your precious gut flora, such as:
- Exposure to substances like chlorine, fluoride, sugar as well as processed foods.
- Lack of nutrients to optimize and support beneficial microbes in your gut.
- Stress, which can hinder the production of enzymes and absorption of nutrients, reduce oxygen levels and increase intestinal permeability.
That’s why nourishing your microbiome with healthy cultured foods, such as fermented vegetables and plain yogurt is important. That said, not many people ferment their vegetables, and most commercial yogurt contains little to no live probiotics.
Even if you do consume fermented vegetables, probiotics are a good option for acquiring diverse strains of beneficial bacteria. Yet, not all probiotics are created equal.
Our line of high-quality probiotic supplements provides you with ideal blends of carefully-selected beneficial bacteria strains, from soil-based organisms to non-spore-forming probiotics and even probiotic yeast, for you and your family’s every need. And for your furry friend, don’t miss out on our Complete Probiotics for Cats & Dogs.
