We have talked at length about the importance of probiotics for your immune system, digestion, metabolism and brain health to just name a few! Probiotics are absolutely necessary for optimal health, because many of the prescriptions and chemicals that we are exposed to kill off our healthy bacteria. If you have trouble swallowing pills, or need higher doses of probiotic, this physician grade powdered probiotic supplement is a great option for you.
What can it help?
- Anxiety and Depression
- Digestive problems
- Weight loss
- Cardiovascular disease
- and many more
How do you know if you need to take this? We offer an assessment of your microbiome so we can see just how aggressive we need to be to repopulate your gut. Once you are in a healthy range, you can often keep it optimal with diet, exercise and a supplement. The basic over the counter probiotics kept in the refrigerated section of your local grocery store work well for most people.
Why a Powdered Probiotic?
We especially recommend this powdered probiotic because it dissolves easily in water, can be added to smoothies or other drinks and it doesn’t taste awful. You can often get kids to drink it without a problem! Especially if you hide it in a smoothie!
What else do you need to know?
What does it mean if you take this supplement and you feel MORE gassy, or bloated? That shows us that your intestinal health is really suffering. It means you have too much inflammation, and you definitely need to get tested, and heal up your gut.
The tests we would recommend would be:
- ALCAT – for food sensitivity information so you do not eat foods that make your digestive health WORSE.
- Complete Digestive Analysis – This test looks not only at the bacteria, yeast and possible parasites in your digestive system, it will also look at how much inflammation you have in your intestinal lining, how well you are breaking down your foods and more!
