Our bodies are home to a wide array of microorganisms making up your body’s microbiome. These microorganisms in the human gut microbiota, namely gut bacteria, play a *huge* part in your overall health.
Although your gut microbes are found in the small and large intestines, they have a holistic effect on the human body, from mood to stress management. While you can support your intestinal microbiota composition through a balanced diet of fiber-filled vegetables, fermented foods, complex carbohydrates, and fruits, it's always a good idea to supplement your diet with nutrients and bacteria specially formulated to support the human gut microbiome.
Here’s a breakdown of how it works:
The Gut Microbiome and General Health
You’ve heard of probiotics that contain strains of live bacterial cells, but what about prebiotics and postbiotics? Prebiotics are a form of dietary fiber that feed your good bacteria, allowing them to perform their bodily duties as effectively as possible, and eventually create postbiotics. Postbiotics are the result of gut bacteria fermenting in the gut, which strengthens the human cells that make up the gut barrier. A strong gut barrier encourages a stronger immune system along with better digestion and metabolism. Probiotics can also help rebuild good bacteria after a round of antibiotics, which kill both harmful and good bacteria. Gut Feelings Probiotics was formulated with a pre-pro-postbiotic to give you everything you’ll need for a healthy gut and immune system.*
The Gut Microbiome and Your Skin
Your gut’s microbiome is directly tied to your skin's microbiome. When your gut is lacking in good bacteria, it can impact your skin’s microbiome and cause issues like acne, dryness, and redness. The strains of good bacteria in Clear Skin Probiotics were chosen specifically for their skin-clearing✝, hydration-boosting, and redness-fighting powers.†*
The Gut Microbiome and Intimate Health
The gut and your vaginal/urinary tract are connected by a highway of good bacteria. Our fan-favorite Good Girl Probiotics supports intimate health needs by adding bacterial strains that typically live in the vaginal tract to the gut to improve intimate health. This leads to balanced pH and yeast levels in the vagina.*
