Importance of Good Bacteria in Your Gut
Your gut impacts so much of your health and unless you’re taking deep dives into the health world you might not know too much about it. 

The other week I asked folks whether or not they knew that different probiotic strains impact different health conditions- some did and some didn’t so we’re going in! 😜 

Although the research is still ongoing, during my masters degree, I found learning about these strains/conditions fascinating!

Different strains impact different conditions IBS, MS, Celiac, constipation, diarrhea... the list goes on! and strains like Lactobacillus casei Shirota, Bifidobacterium lactis, and Lactobacillus acidophilus.

One that really fascinates me - Saccharomyces boulardii, a probiotic yeast, in individuals with MS. The results? A remarkable decrease in inflammation and significant improvements in pain, fatigue, and overall quality of life. Probiotics clearly can make a big difference for people, in a lot of different ways and so many people aren't told about any of it! 

Although you can get a high quality probiotic (and in general should) there are also a lot of different foods that contain these too! 👇

✨Saccharomyces boulardii: mangosteen and lychee - this one is mostly consumed through a probiotic since these two fruits aren't so common in most of our diets!

✨Lactobacillus casei Shirota: some yogurts, yogurt-like fermented milk, sauerkraut and certain cheeses.

✨Bifidobacterium lactis: Yoghurt and milk products AND foods rich in fiber, such as apples, dates, lentils, blueberries, and broccoli, can all help your Bifidobacterium thrive, so including these in your diet can sometimes be helpful too! 

✨Lactobacillus acidophilus: One of the most common types of probiotics and can be found in fermented foods (get my gut freebie to check out a great list!) 

 So I could go on and on and on about how particular strains impact a TON of different conditions, especially autoimmune, but I'll just leave that for another day 😜
