Lactobacillus Acidophilus is a gut bacteria that helps with digestion, especially dairy products. Many people are lactose (milk sugar) intolerant, and can’t digest dairy because their body doesn’t make the digestive enzyme, lactase.
Probiotics help with digestion but also make up around 70-80% of your immune system. Studies show that people who take probiotics on a daily basis have healthier digestive systems.
Today, people are having more digestive problems than ever. Our diets consist of processed foods that are made from Genetically modified organisms (GMO’s), meat that’s pumped full of hormones, chemicals that trick our minds into over eating and preservatives that kill off the natural enzymes. Improving your health should always start with a healthy diet.
Changing the way you eat may ease some of the digestive issues you have. Many of these problems are caused from over eating, swallowing your food without properly chewing, and weak or neutralized digestive fluids.
We should eat until we are comfortable, not till we are stuffed. Over eating makes it hard for your digestive system to break down all the food packed into your stomach.
Chewing your food properly before swallowing is more important than you may think. Teeth are the first step of the digestive system and should be taken advantage of. You should chew your food until it’s a fine paste before swallowing. This makes it easier for your stomach acids to break down the food and absorb the nutrients at the cell level.
Weak digestive fluids come from a poor diet and mixing foods that take different stomach acids to digest. When food can’t fully be broken down because of weak or neutralized stomach acid, the food starts to ferment in the stomach casing gas and heart burn.
Adding probiotics to your diet helps support a healthy digestive system.
