This has saved my life! That may be a little dramatic, but I cannot express a difference I have seen in the last three weeks since starting this probiotic. Immediately, I became more regular and had more energy. Struggling from IBS and an inflamed colon, I haven't had peace with my digestive track in years. Now, it is easier to not only digest a meal but to pass it. I am thrilled. I will definitely continue to take this. Also, the best part, my belly is as flat as can be! I haven't been bloated, AT ALL! It's great. I'm a real human reviewer, not a robot! Get this probiotic. - Lisa O.

The best probiotic I have used!

The best probiotic I have used! And I have used many! I have an autoimmune disease that leaves me sluggish and fatigued. I've found that this supplement has helped tremendously to get me feeling better after giving birth 4 months ago. I was struggling with even more fatigue than usual as well as anxiety and depression and this probiotic TRULY helped me feel energized again, balanced and healthy. Highly recommend! - Dee D.

What Is Leaky Gut?

Posted by Dmitriy Godzin on

 

 

Interviewer:    What is leaky gut and why is it an issue for athletes that are training hard?

Dr. Stern:    We digest food. Food is broken down in our stomach to small little pieces and then it goes into our small intestines. And the body then absorbs these small, small, tiny molecules into our blood stream, and then it takes those nutrients and brings it our muscles, or tendons, or ligaments, or liver, or wherever it needs to go to. Here's the thing.

This is what leaky gut is. If those small holes which allows these little molecules to come through our intestinal tract into our blood stream, if those start widening, they become bigger. That's called a leaky gut.

So when we eat certain foods that create inflammation such as lectins, which are sticky proteins such as gluten. If that goes into our intestinal tract and irritates the lining of the intestinal tract walls, these tiny holes become bigger, and now bigger molecules can get into the blood stream.

As these bigger molecules get into the blood stream, it creates inflammation in our system. As it creates inflammation, we might have digestive inflammation like gas, and bloating, and stomach pain, at which point you're looking at what foods you’ve eaten, but that might not have been your problem. You might have inflammation that goes and travels far in your body. So you might have knee pain. You might have thyroid issues.

So an athlete who's trying to be the best they can be, whatever sport they're participating in, they need to be as healthy as possible. If they are eating certain foods that are creating inflammation in their intestinal tract, stimulating this leaky gut, that's going to have ramifications throughout their whole system.
