On the road to good health, it’s important to make sure your intestines are paved with good bacteria.
Are you on a mission to restore Gut Health?
You are not alone. 60 to 70 million people are affected by this in America and more than this world wide.
Since Dr. Google and search engine can’t give you more insight it’s better to seek help from a professional Nutritionist and best educational sources.
Where google wisdom ends, we pick up.
Being a Nutritionist, I came across so many clients whose root cause for health issues is GUT health and nobody addresses this. They try to fix this with short cuts, yo-yo diets, some detox shakes and what not.
My clients were tired of band-aid solutions that fail to address the root cause of their gut health issues. So that’s why RTB ferments came into life!! To serve the Mankind and educate the basics of our Second brain “GUT”.
As they say- If Mommy isn’t happy, ain’t nobody happy. Substitute “GUT” for “Mommy” and you pretty much get the picture.
If your gut is distressed, it won’t perform well and you won’t feel good.
Our gut bacteria: Hard-working cells
Factoid: You have more bacteria in your gut than cells in your body!
Bacteria can be classed as harmful or helpful. Beneficial bacteria are like busy tourists in our guts. They come and go. We don’t have a permanent supply, so for a vibrant gut “economy,” we need to continually replenish them via diet.
Our gut bacteria vary depending on age, gender, diet, geography, hygiene, stress and medication use. Birthing method (C-section vs. vaginal delivery) and first foods (breast milk vs. formula) can also determine what bacteria colonize our gut, with breast milk being an “immunological asset,” because it generally increases the number of friendly bacteria.
Beneficial gut bacteria help manufacture vitamins (B12, K, B6, B5, B3, folate and biotin), enhance absorption of minerals, fight off pathogens, digest food, and metabolize drugs. They even influence total body metabolism!
Do You Need More Probiotics
Chances are good that the answer is yes. Most people — even those consuming healthy diets — simply don’t get enough probiotics on their own and can benefit from more, especially if they have any inflammation.
It’s generally safe to try increasing probiotics in your diet on your own, too. There are hundreds of types of probiotics, but the most common ones are lactobacillus and bifidobacterium. You can find one or both of these in fermented dairy products like kefir, yogurt, and soft cheeses (check labels to confirm), kombucha (a fermented tea), kimchi, miso, raw sauerkraut, and tempeh. Try including at least one in your diet on a daily basis.
