Listen to Your Gut
Have you ever considered that the photos you share on social media could be a health hazard?
Have you considered your gut’s feelings?
- Overeating takes its toll on your digestive system.
- Feeding yourself with “dirty” food will affect my health.
- An unhealthy gut may lead to reduced detoxification and skin problems.
Functions of the Intestine:
- Digestion and absorption. The normal functioning of the body requires the intestine to absorb nutrients and provide energy.
- Detoxification and immunity. Our body finds it difficult to fight against viruses and bacteria if the intestine is not able to effectively remove toxins.
Intestinal Balance for Better Health
Common good bacteria:
Bifidobacterium lactis HN019 and Lactobacillus
Generally called “probiotics”, these are beneficial to the intestine
Common neutral bacteria:
Nonpathogenic Escherichia coli, Streptococcus faecalis and yeast
Switch to either good or bad bacteria depending on the number of good and bad bacteria present
Common bad bacteria:
Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Candida
albicans and Streptococcus
An excess of bad bacteria will worsen intestinal movements and the toxins produced will impair the functioning of our immunity system
B.lactis HN019 – Good Bacteria and a Good Friend!
A clinical research conducted into B.lactis HN019 on intestinal health: the results were compiled through an abdominal X-ray test together with a self-reported frequency of gastrointestinal symptoms.
1 People who consume B.lactis HN019 recorded a reduction in whole gut transit time
2 An improvement in the incidences of vomiting, regurgitation, abdominal pain, nausea and gurgling
The conclusion drawn from the study was that consuming B.lactis HN019 helps support intestinal health and promote faecal extraction.
