80% of our immune system is in our intestines. So how our intestines work and function can have an effect on our whole body and well being. Our gut also effects our moods and emotions. Ever had a "gut feeling" "Feel sick to your guts" or had a stomach churning experience? Our intestines are filled with both good and bad bacteria. The good bacteria help regulate many things and they can help keep the bad bacteria in check. Many things can cause this to become unbalanced. Food and diet, pollution, alcohol and medications, illness, antibiotics, stress and more can trigger an unbalance and cause the bad bacteria to grow out of control causing sickness and pain and a general feeling of malaise. Probiotic supplementation can add the good bacteria our body desperately need and want. But you do not want just any probiotic. Many do not have the right amount or the right strains. Others do not have the protection for the bacteria to make it to the intestines before being killed by the stomach acids. But with the right product,the right amount and the right strains you can give your intestines the boost they need. Whether because of sickness or stress or just because you want added support.
Another important way to keep our intestines healthy is to keep them moving and clean. Our intestines are made to naturally clean themselves but stress, pollution, dehydration, medications and more can make them sluggish and not perform their best. This can also effect the good bacteria. It can also lead to a build up of toxins. A great way to clean them and to keep them moving is to do regular Cleanses. If you sue a good cleanse it will help your intestines perform at their best.
One big problem today with the build up of bad bacteria and the problem with sluggish bowels is the problem with Candida. Candida is yeast that is in the body. Every body has them both on the outside and the inside and it is usually no problem. The good bacteria and immune system deal with them.But if there are not enough of the good bacteria and the candida is out of control then problems can develop. There are MANY disorders that have their start with candida overgrowth. Cleanses can help along with probiotics. There are specific cleanses for candida that target this area specifically.
