What You Need To Know About Probiotics And Gut Health
- posted: Jun. 29, 2021
Could probiotics do you more harm than good? It depends on the current state of what's happening in your gut.
Everybody thinks fermented foods and probiotics are curable when it comes to gut health. But if your gut is imbalanced, it can do more harm than good.
Some people taking probiotics can lead to brain fog, gas, and even diarrhea. It may be that the probiotics have caused a shift in their gut bacteria and our mental state.
According to research, the brain fogginess which lasts between 30 minutes and a few hours could be caused by the guts overproduction of D-lactic acid after taking a probiotic, which can happen when good bacteria colonize inside the small intestines, instead of where it's supposed to be the large intestines or the colon.
When you have too much D-lactic acid, it can seep into your bloodstream leading to D-lactic acidosis, a condition characterized by symptoms consistent with brain fog. The bottom line is that we shouldn't assume that it's safe because you don't need a prescription.
People should not be taking probiotics or any supplements without knowing if they need them and are safe for them.
So when in doubt, "Test, don't guess." because only once we've identified the root cause of chronic illnesses we create a customized treatment protocol personalized for you. It not only saves money on unnecessary prescriptions but also time getting you healthier faster.
