Gut flora imbalance:
Overgrowth of bad bacteria in the intestine can lead to irritable bowel syndrome with digestive discomfort, constipation, and or diarrhea.
Gut flora imbalance can also contribute to systemic inflammation, hormonal imbalance, impaired immune function, thyroid issues, skin problems, and even high blood pressure.
Balancing gut flora with effective probiotics can therefore have long-ranging positive effects on the whole body.
However, not all probiotics are equal, and common probiotics supplements are not beneficial!
According to Dr. Ray Peat, the only probiotics that are effective are the ones that have an antibiotics-like function.
These effective probiotics don’t harm good bacteria but target and kill specific unwanted bacteria in the human digestive tract and when the unwanted bacteria die, they serve as feed for the good bacteria, further improving gut flora.
This guide helps you understand the different types of probiotics and which you should choose if you want to improve your gut flora.
