A number of diseases and disorders have been linked to abnormalities or imbalance in our gut flora.
It’s important to note that while research has linked these conditions to changes in the gut microbiome,
it does not mean that in every case gut bacteria is the cause of the problem.
The question that follows is, what if the gut flora imbalance of trillions of microorganisms is in fact affecting us more than we realise?
We are more bacteria than we are human!
Do you suffer from any of the following;
- Anxiety- Prebiotics an have anti-anxiety and antidepressant effects. Consuming beneficial bacteria can also positively change the way the brain responds to the environment.
- Depression- More than a third of depression sufferers have “leaky gut,” or permeability of the gut lining that allows bacterium to seep out into the bloodstream.
- Obesity & Diabetes- A number of studies have linked instability in the gut microbiome to obesity and obesity- related health problems.
- I.B.S (Irritable Bowel Syndrome- there is a definitive link between IBS and an overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestines
Research shows that overweight or underweight or unwell people have a different gut biome, (Gut Bacteria to a healthy person.)
That is why they crave the bad foods as this is the sound of the bacteria in their gut, you have more neural pathways, (communication link) between your gut and your brain than anywhere in your body.
The human gut has more nerves than the entire spinal column, recent scientific studies have shown that the network of neurons, (nerve cells) lining our gut is so vast, that our gut is now been referred to as our “second brain.” While our so called “gut brain” doesn’t literally do the thinking for us, it does play a huge role in disease prevention and wellbeing.
Our “second brain/gut brain” is known as the enteric nervous system.
It’s the one that helps you feel happy, optimistic, self-confident and positive, while also helping you get a good night’s sleep.
Bacteria call on, shout out and scream what they want you to eat.
Feed the right bacteria and you crave the right foods.
It takes 1 week to 10 days for good bacteria to embed on the wall of your gut lining, so be consistent with your Probiotics.
You can either do a fecal transplant (someone else’s poop put inside you) or take some of Nuferm’s great plant based Probiotics.
