There’s a bacterial balancing act going on inside your gut microbiome: the microorganisms in your intestinal tract. And you want them to be dominated by good bacteria (probiotics) that keep you healthy.
Overpopulated, bad bacteria can cause bloating, diarrhea, constipation and other bowel disorders as well inhibit the absorption of nutrients that your body needs. When you consider that your digestive system houses over 100 trillion bacteria weighing in at around four pounds, it is vital that the good outweigh the bad.
Support Your Microbiome with FloraFood and fit ’n fiber
FloraFood provides a supplemental population of probiotics (good bacteria) for your gut microbiome. Each capsule of FloraFood probiotics contains 3 billion colony forming units to help outnumber the bad. And fit ’n fiber delivers prebiotics (food) for those probiotics to thrive and reproduce in your gut, the core of your disease-fighting immune system.
Know Who Your FloraFood Friends Are: Lacto, Bifido & Bifido
So what are the three types of good bacteria found in FloraFood that supplement those in your gut microbiome?
One of the main species of good bacteria that populates your gastrointestinal tract is also in FloraFood: Lactobacillus gasseri. This species creates a variety of organic compounds that inhibit unfriendly bacteria. One of these compounds is lactic acid, which creates an unsuitable intestinal environment for the bad to breed.
Along with the resilience to survive a journey through stomach acid on the way to the intestines, L. gasseri is the stickiest of all lactobacilli when it comes to adhering to intestinal walls, allowing it to effectively colonize and protect you against disease-causing pathogens.
The other two FloraFood friends are some of the very first microbes to colonize the human gastrointestinal tract and belong to the Bifidobacterium species: B. bifidum and B. longum.
- provide nutrients by breaking down non-digestible, dietary carbohydrates
- protect against pathogens by competitive exclusion (beating out the bad guys)
- modulate the immune system
- confer positive health benefits
Taking Care of Your FloraFood Friends with fit ’n fiber
Research has shown that good bacteria feast on undigested dietary carbohydrates defined as prebiotics, which help them to flourish in gut microbiome.
Fit for probiotic feasting, fit ’n fiber contains three types of prebiotic fiber: acacia, konjac (glucomannan) and guar gum. Each serving delivers 8 grams of prebiotics to feed probiotics, helping good bacteria grow and reproduce exponentially.
To help maintain a healthy balance of bacteria in your microbiome, supplement with FloraFood probiotics and keep them well fed with fit ’n fiber prebiotics.
