Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your health, especially your digestive system.
Probiotic benefits begin in the gut
Over 80% of your immune system is located in the digestive tract and this is the most overlooked reason why our digestive tract is critical to our health.
The digestive system is the 2nd largest part of our neurological system and is called our enteric nervous system and is located in the gut – which is why it’s is called our 2nd brain!
Today we are subjected to many toxins which decrease our digestive function affecting our ability to utilise nutrients, get rid of cholesterol which trigger chronic inflammation in the body which is the cause of many diseases and chronic conditions.
The secret to restoring your digestive health is all about the balance of both good and bad bacteria in your gut. In order to have great health you need to consider consuming both supplements and probiotic rich foods.
What are Probiotics?
Probiotics are bacteria that line your digestive tract and support your body’s ability to absorb nutrients and fight infection. Did you know there are actually 10 times more probiotics in your gut than cells in your body!
There are over 2000 different types of bacteria that your skin and digestive system host. The benefits of probiotics have been proven effective in supporting healthy digestion, your immune system and even beautiful skin.
The Top 7 Probiotic Killers include:
- Prescription antibiotics
- Tap Water
- GMO Foods
- Emotional Stress
- Chemicals and medications
We are exposed to so many of these toxins, stressors and foods on a daily basis and if the issue isn’t addressed your system can become a breeding ground for yeast, bad bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungi and bad bacteria.

How Probiotics Work
There is both beneficial and harmful bacteria in the gut. Digestive experts agree that there should be a balance of 85% good bacteria and 15% bad bacteria of gut flora.
If the ratio gets out of balance then this is known as gut dysbiosis which means there is a balance of certain types of yeast, bacteria and fungus which is affecting the body in a negative way.
