Bifidobacteria is one of the most important probiotics for good digestion. In fact, it should make up 70% of the beneficial bacteria in your small intestinal tract. Bifidobacteria helps to prevent constipation, diarrhea, food cravings, heartburn and irritable bowel syndrome.
People can become deficient in good bacteria from taking antibiotics and steroid medications, drinking chlorinated water or eating fruits and vegetables with pesticides and herbicides on them, or meat and dairy products from animals given antibiotics and growth hormones. On top of all that, many of us start out deficient in good bacteria if we were born by a C-section and/or formula fed.
To name just a few disadvantages, if your intestinal tract is deficient and out of balance you might also:
- Struggle losing weight
- Suffer from depression or anxiety (almost 95% of serotonin, the chemical responsible for even moods, is made in your gut!).
- Constantly get sick (80% of your immune system lives in your gut as well.).
So how do you turn your gut health around? At Nutritional Weight & Wellness, our first recommendation is always to clean up your diet and eliminate processed foods by eating the Weight & Wellness Way. We recommend a variety of animal protein, carbohydrates in the form of green leafy vegetables and fruit, along with good healthy fats like avocados, coconut oil, olives or nuts to repopulate diverse bacteria. On top of that balanced diet, consider adding foods that naturally contain good bacteria, such as sauerkraut, kefir, kimchi and miso. However if you (like most Americans) don’t incorporate these items regularly, our nutritionists recommend supplementing with Bifido Balance.
HOW TO TAKE IT
Our nutritionists advise clients take one to two capsules ten to fifteen minutes before each meal. It’s important to take Bifido Balance on an empty stomach so that digestion of your food doesn’t interfere. Bifidobacteria helps crowd out other bad bacteria. Some people notice a difference within just a few days of starting it, while others notice they feel better within a few weeks.
So whether you’re looking to reduce constipation, gas and bloating, and sugar cravings or boost your immune system, Bifido Balance is for you.
