Are Probiotics Really Helping?
Probiotics taught us that bacteria is good for your health but it hasn't proven to be a long lasting solution to gut problems. A healthy gut needs more than probiotics. It needs dirt.
Dr. Zach Bush, a triple board certified physician with expertise in Internal Medicine, Endocrinology, Metabolism, Hospice and Palliative Care, has the facts on what probiotics actually are, what they can do for you and other solutions for your gut health instead.
. Have a positive "reset" effect on the gut
. Prevent bad bacteria from taking over
. Provide great short-term benefits, like after an antibiotic wipe out
Probiotics can also:
. Overwhelm the gut eco-system with one species of bacteria, creating a monoculture
. Build a temporary environment in your system on a daily basis because they can't colonize the human gut
. Cause you to feel worse if you forget or stop taking them
. Increase tight junction function, the velcro-like proteins that allow the body to absorb the nutrients it needs and block the toxins it doesn’t
. Produce a healthier, diverse ecosystem of bacteria
. Generate communication between your gut and its cells
Even if you eat a clean, non-GMO, gluten-free, and organic diet, you are still susceptible to air, water, and food contaminated with herbicides called glyphosate which you may have heard of. These herbicides can damage tight junctions which block toxins and lock in nutrients.
Nature has it's own antidote to glyphosate discovered in unspoiled, ancient soil 10 feet below the southwest desert. This soil is proven to increase tight junctions to promote a healthy internal firewall, which helps create a more resilient system by supporting gut health, respiratory wellness, balanced immune function, and enhanced mental clarity in the face of environmental factors.
Thankfully, there is a supplement that can help! It is called RESTORE. Our bodies need dirt, and RESTORE is full of it!
Made in the U.S.A., RESTORE is a plant-derived mineral supplement that creates a firewall against toxins entering the gut wall. Restore creates a biological environment for good gut bacteria to grow and flourish to improve good gut health.
I was sent a sample bottle of RESTORE to review. It could not have come to me at a better time. A little under two weeks ago, I was very sick with a UTI and I was also diagnosed with walking pneumonia (at the same time!) I was shocked. Needless to say, I was given two prescriptions for two strong antibiotics. The doctor warned me that I could expect to develop a yeast infection from taking these antibiotics. A few days after starting these drugs, my infections were clearing up, my my mouth and tongue got sore. I realized that I had developed thrush in my mouth. Yuck!
Thankfully, I remembered to take a teaspoon of Restore. I had almost forgotten that I received it, since I had been so sick. Honestly,my first taste of it kind of made me cringe, but then I got used to it and it wasn't that bad tasting at all. I started taking a teaspoon of it, 3 times each day. My thrush symptoms were gone by the next day, and I never developed a yeast infection.
After looking at the bottle and reading all of the health benefits that are available by taking RESTORE (including increased mental clarity and a better night's sleep among others) I am completely sold and I will definitely make it a priority to take this health enhancing supplement on a regular basis, especially when I am on antibiotics!
