So I am a few days late but hopefully you all will be so full of Holiday cheer you won’t mind
This week, I want to know why do you use doTERRA? What has your experience been with doTERRA oils? Comment below or on my facebook page here to enter to win a PB Assist!
So Probiotics, you’ve heard about them but what do you really know? They are the good bacteria in your gut that helps keep you well. There are TONS of studies on probiotics, if you want to get all geeked out check out the studies on PubMed here.
There are many ways our intestinal microflora can be compromised or even killed. Stress, physical exertion, toxins in our diet, exposure to harmful microorganisms, and the use of antibiotic therapies can pose significant challenges to the colonization and function of friendly microorganism in the gut. Healthy intestinal microflora is also challenged in people whose diets consist of high levels of animal fats and proteins and are low in fiber. Furthermore, studies have shown a steady decline in friendly intestinal flora in both men and women as they age.
When intestinal microflora is compromised, our bodies become more prone to infectious pathogens in the gut and our immune system cannot function optimally. Unhealthy conditions associated with compromised intestinal microflora include suppressed immune system function, intestinal deterioration, diarrhea, constipation, infection, and even bone strength reduction. To counter such threats, supplemental strains of friendly microorganisms, or probiotics, can be used as part of regular dietary supplement program.
So even outside of doing a cleanse taking the PB Assist can have many health benefits for your gut flora!
