The Core of Your Wellness
Hippocrates stated that all disease begins in the gut. Modern medicine is beginning to understand and accept the concept of immune function and gastrointestinal health being interdependent. When diet and environmental stress overload the digestive system, we can end up with something called leaky gut syndrome. When the gut becomes “leaky,” bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, undigested foods, fat, and waste are allowed to pass through the damaged, hyperpermeable gut. This situation then creates overstimulation of the immune system and what is commonly referred to as autoimmune disease.
Gut Restorative PRP is an all-natural supplement comprised of bovine colostrum for supporting a healthy immune system. Supplementing with Gut Restorative PRP has been shown to bolster the lining of the gastrointestinal tract and fight inflammation, thus actually healing the gut.
Once a leaky gut has been restored, probiotics can be helpful in restoring the gut flora. There are approximately 500 different strains of these bacteria. Lactobacillus bacteria are the primary bacterial strain living in our small intestine, while the bifidobacterium are the main bacteria in residence in our large intestine. Probiotics and bacteria are an essential part of our immune system and work to increase the production of immune cells in the intestinal tract. With so many probiotic formulas in the market, how does one choose the right product? We normally look at the strength of the probiotic, listed as colony forming units (CFUs), and the number of bacterial species featured in the product.
Probiotic Daily Support with 5 billion CFUs is a good daily supplement for anyone with an existing healthy gut flora, or for children. Individuals experiencing gut issues who would benefit from re-established gut flora, should consider Probiotic Mega Blend DF with 15 billion CFUs, or Extra Strength Probiotic with 35 billion CFUs. Individuals who are having gut issues that have not responded well to other probiotics should definitely try SBP, a spore based probiotic. Unlike oral bacteria based probiotics, spore based probiotics are not destroyed by gastric acid in the stomach. So they arrive at the gut with 99% of their stated probiotic species intact and can offer a quicker resolution to gut issues. SBP, a spore based probiotic offers an effective new approach to difficult gut challenges.
With gut health being so critical to our overall immune function, addressing issues of gut permability (leaky gut) and the proliferation of our healthy gut flora should be a major concern for the maintenance of overall health.
