Weekly Tip - Probiotics

An essential part of a healthy body and mind.

Probiotics are tiny living bacteria that are naturally occurring in the intestinal tract, they boost nutrient absorption, detoxify the body and help lower chronic inflammation. In addition to this probiotics also help with weight loss by lowering cortisol levels, the stress hormone that promotes fat storage around the abdominals. Probiotics improve insulin sensitivity by giving your body more control over your blood sugar and they can also help lower stress levels, It’s very hard for the body to lose weight when you’re stressed and stuck in fight or flight mode of your sympathetic nervous system. Just taking a probiotic daily and you will be well on your way to improving your body composition and stress levels.

These healthy bacteria are also known as microflora, they help keep a healthy gut by making sure food passes along the intestinal track efficiently, having a healthy intestinal lining will help prevent allegories and liver disease. 2/3 of all neurotransmitters are made in the gut lining, neurotransmitter are the signals sent from one cell to another, so if you guts are unhealthy this can mess up the messages being passed around the body, putting you in a bad mood and can also cause poor brain function like brain fog.

There are a few ways to get your daily probiotic fix, we encourage kefir or organic natural yogurt which you can find from most health food stores like About Life, Thomas Dux or Taste Organics. for an extra punch to boost your health and weight loss try supplementing with either NOW probiotic 10 - 50 billion or Poliquin Uber prebiotics available in studio.

All health begins in the gut.
