The Benefits of Probiotics and Importance of Gut Health
When it comes to your health, you need to trust your gut! Your gut is critical to your well-being and includes the various parts of your gastrointestinal tract like your stomach, intestines, and esophagus. In addition to these vital organs, your gut contains trillions of bacteria, fungi, and viruses known as microorganisms that make up your microbiome. The majority of microbes are located in your large intestine, and research has shown that our bodies are made up of bacteria. We have just 30 trillion human cells and roughly 40 trillion bacterial cells!
Although some can be harmful, many are essential for proper immune function, a healthy weight, and heart. A healthy gut can ward off viruses, delivers nutrients to your body, and communicates with your brain through hormones. There are approximately 1000 species of bacteria in your gut, each playing a different role.
Despite the critical part the gut plays in our overall health, many Americans don’t have a healthy gut. Two of the ten top-selling drugs in the U.S. are related to digestive issues. It is estimated that 70 million people in the U.S. have a digestive disease, and the majority of us will experience a digestive problem at least once in our life. If you aren’t sure if you have a healthy gut, look for these signs:
A diet high in sugar and processed foods.
If you want to know if your gut is healthy, look at your diet. The food you eat will impact the amount of good and bad bacteria in your gut. When your diet consists of a lot of sugar, processed foods, and refined carbs, it can decrease the good bacteria, which causes an imbalance. This imbalance causes you to crave more sugars which only makes it worse.
Further, it can cause inflammation in the body, which is a cause of many diseases.
If you have trouble sleeping on your buckwheat pillow at night, it could be caused by an unhealthy gut. Studies have found that the hormone serotonin, which affects sleep, is produced in the gut. So, when your gut isn’t functioning as it should, it can lead to restless nights, insomnia, and daytime fatigue.
When you suddenly become intolerant to certain foods, it can be triggered by an unhealthy gut. Food intolerance is different than a food allergy which is an immune response. Instead, this is when foods cause digestive issues like bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, or gas because of poor quality gut bacteria.
Changes in your weight
If you have suddenly gained or lost weight without making changes to your diet or exercise levels, it may be a sign your gut is unhealthy. Your gut regulates your blood sugar and absorbs nutrients, but when there is an imbalance, it may not function as it should.
Fortunately, you can turn things around and help boost your gut health and functioning by incorporating more probiotics into your diet. Probiotics are the good bacteria. They are the helpful bacteria that keep your gut happy. So when you increase your dietary consumption of probiotics or take probiotic supplements you are balancing the good and bad.
Though there are still some unanswered questions about how probiotics work, researchers believe they help process food in the gut by affecting the nerves involved in gut movement.
There are two groups of probiotics. The first and most common is Lactobacillus. This is the bacteria you will find in fermented foods and yogurt and is often suggested for those who are lactose intolerant. The other group is called Bifidobacterium. This is found in some dairy products and may be recommended for those with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Probiotic supplements can improve a lot more than diarrhea and digestive troubles. Studies have found that probiotic supplements can also improve mental health by improving gut health. For example, a 2016 study followed 70 chemical works for 1.5 months. They found that the workers who consumed 100 grams of probiotic yogurt a day or took a daily supplement had experienced a decline in depression, stress, and anxiety. Further, a review of 15 studies found that supplementing with both strains of probiotics for one to two months could improve obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), memory, autism, anxiety, and depression.
By reducing stress and anxiety, a probiotic supplement can also help you sleep. Stress is a massive factor in why people have trouble sleeping at night. When you combat this stress, you can help yourself sleep better.
In addition to sleeping better, you will also keep your heart healthy. For example, probiotics lower the bad LDL cholesterol and reduce blood pressure. It does this by breaking down bile in the gut and preventing it from being reabsorbed into the gut and bloodstream. A 6-month study found that probiotics increase good HDL cholesterol and a review found that by eating a probiotic yogurt for 2-8 weeks, you could reduce LDL cholesterol by 5%.
Probiotics may also improve eczema and the severity of specific allergies. Interestingly, a study found that women who took probiotics during pregnancy had a child with an 83% lower risk of developing eczema. Though more research is needed, some studies have seen promising results for those with dairy allergies as well.
Just when you think it can’t get any better – it does! Probiotics have also been found to boost your immune system. By taking a nightly probiotic supplement, you inhibit the growth of bad gut bacteria and promote the production of natural antibodies. In addition, some probiotics have been found to increase immune cells, such as lgA-producing cells and T lymphocytes.
An impressive study consisting of 571 children gave groups milk with or with Lactobacillus. Both groups consumed the same 260 ml of milk for a period of 7 months. The study aimed to examine whether long-term consumption of probiotic milk would reduce the risk of respiratory and gastrointestinal infections in children at daycare. The results showed that probiotic milk lessened the severity and frequency of respiratory infections by 17%.
Lastly, another appealing benefit of probiotics is their effect on one’s weight. Probiotic foods and supplements may help you drop pounds and reduce belly fat. This is done through several different mechanisms. The first is that probiotics prevent the absorption of dietary fat in the intestine. So, rather than absorb it, the fat is excreted through feces. Secondly, probiotics can make you feel fuller for longer, resulting in eating fewer calories. When combined with an increase in calories burned and less fat being stored, you can start to lose weight.
Research on probiotic supplementation and weight loss has been promising. For example, a study of 210 individuals found that taking a low dose of Lactobacillus gasseri for 12 weeks had reduced belly fat by 8.5%. Additionally, another study found that women who took the probiotic Lactobacillus rhamnosus for three months lost 50% more than those who did not take a probiotic.
To receive the benefits of probiotics listed here, you will need to consume more probiotic-rich foods or supplements. One of the best probiotic-rich foods is yogurt, but you can also incorporate kefir, tempeh, sauerkraut, kimchi, kombucha, pickles, buttermilk, and some cheeses.
If you choose to take a probiotic supplement instead, look for a high-quality one. A shelf table formula will mean you don’t need to refrigerate it and can keep it with you when you travel. Also, look for a product made in the USA and check out the ingredients list. You want to make sure it only contains effective ingredients and no harmful or confusing “other ingredients.” Lastly, a vegan and non-GMO product will further ensure you are getting a pure, quality supplement.
When you first start taking a probiotic supplement, you may notice your stomach feels extra “active.” The first few days of taking them, it is common to experience bloating, flatulence, diarrhea, or an upset stomach. For this reason, many people choose to take them at night.
There is a common misconception that you can’t take a multivitamin at the same time as a probiotic supplement. This is not true, and taking them both at the same time will not alter the effectiveness. However, many will choose to take a multivitamin in the morning and then take the probiotic at night. This way, you are getting all the nutrients you need throughout the day, won’t feel any discomfort, and will sleep better at night.
Hippocrates, the ancient Greek physician and individual regarded as the father of medicine, famously said, “all disease begins in the gut.” Food sensitivities, nutrient malabsorption, inflammatory diseases, thyroid issues, mood disorders, chronic pain, and skin conditions have all been linked to the gut. To be healthy, you need to have a healthy gut, and one of the best ways to do this is with probiotics. Combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise, a probiotic supplement will help you feel better and sleep better!
