Why a Healthy Gut Microbiome is Pivotal to Your Health!
Our Team is always on the search for new and better therapies including products, and we would like to introduce you to a very important oral gut repair product that you probably have not heard about.
A very good option to re-populate your microbiome is taking a high quality post-biotic that is able to communicate with your entire microbiome and recreate the healthy diversity needed for optimal function. This product’s bacteria are flash frozen so there is no risk of infectious disease, but the good bacteria metabolites and post-biotics still have potent beneficial effects on the gut microbiome with metabolic and immune modulatory effects.
Supplementing with post-biotics allows you to introduce the good bacteria into your gut that, like most people, you have likely lost over the years due to various environmental factors. A study from 2020 shows that post-biotics have immunomodulatory, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-cancer properties! Since the microflora in of our guts have been depleted in one way or another, this supplement is likely to be beneficial to a wide variety of people.
If you are interested in learning more about this post-biotic, please give us a call at 415-345-0099 or reach out via email: email@example.com. We will be happy to answer any questions that you may have. This high quality product is not available online.
We now know that over the past 50+ years, our food sources have become depleted in vital nutrients. These nutrients are important to our overall health and especially, the health of our gut and gut microbiome. With the overuse of antibiotics, the change in microbiome has led to a multi-generational loss of our microflora.
Your body contains trillions of microbes containing at least 150 times more genes than the human genome! These microscopic organisms are referred to as your microflora, which make up your gut microbiome. Your microbiome serves a wide variety of important processes including boosting your body’s immune system, playing a huge role in digestion, producing thousands of metabolites, making vital short-chain fatty acids that help our immunity, and modulate the body’s inflammatory responses.
Unfortunately, the gut microbiome is a component of health that has been neglected by mainstream medicine until recently. We are continuing to discover that the diversity of good bacteria in your gut is vital to your health, and you probably know that our clinic emphasizes the importance of a daily gut repair regimen, as well as a healthy diet with choices for you and your entire family. We have also emphasized how important it is to treat the microbiome in its totality. We have found that single probiotics with a few bacterial strains are much less effective.
Additionally, the gut is only becoming more important as it is connected to the brain via the gut-brain axis – this is a link between the central nervous system and the enteric nervous system (a division of the PNS (parasympathetic nervous system) that can control gastrointestinal activity) of the body. Due to its connection with the brain, poor gut health has been found to be associated with various neurological disorders such as anxiety, depression, dementia, and even schizophrenia. A study conducted in 2019 found that the transfer of gut microbiota from schizophrenia patients to mice stimulated schizophrenia-relevant behavior. The gut-brain axis allows for the gut to be used as a means to improve brain function with one study showing how a high fat/sugar diet impairs cognition.
Not only has the gut been linked to diseases that occur later in life, new research suggests that the development of a healthy gut microbiome at a young age affects future development. Starting as early as infancy, one study from 2015 shows that the first three years of a newborn’s life are an opportunity for ‘microbial modulation’. Factors such as the mode of childbirth, use of antibiotics, geographical location, and type of feeding all had a significant effect on the microbiome.
