“All disease begins in the gut.” -Hippocrates
The health of your gut is a super important and often overlooked piece of the puzzle of your overall wellbeing. Often known as the body’s “second brain,” your intestines are linked to digestion, mood, and immune health. Healing your gut allows the body to build a stronger immune system and produce the "good" type of bacteria. Probiotics can help support your digestive health. There is a clear connection between intestinal health and mood. There is correlation between people suffering with mental issues such as anxiety and depression and people suffering with stomach issues such as IBS, celiac disease, and poor digestion.
So how can you improve the function of this vital part of your body?! Probiotics are a great way to boost your gut health and help you absorb all of the wonderful nutrients you are eating. Philosophie Superfoods have so much goodness, it's important to make sure you're maximizing all of the nutrients you're ingesting! Eating probiotic-rich foods like kimchi, sauerkraut, and kombucha is a great start. I also take a supplement in the form of a pill that I take every day in the morning with a tall glass of alkaline water. Lately I’ve been loving this brand. It’s super convenient because they don’t need to be refrigerated (who has time for that?!). I also love the cute little pearl shape of the pills. According to the Probiotics One website, probiotics are beneficial because they support digestive health, promote immune system health, improve nutrient absorption, restores the balance of beneficial bacteria, and replenishes bacteria after antibiotic use. The “good” type of bacteria that probiotics add to your digestive system help your body’s vitamin and mineral absorbency, hormone regulation, digestion, vitamin production, immune response, and ability to eliminate toxins, and overall mental health. --See more at http://www.probioticsone.com/.
