Probiotic plus prebiotic and a Healthy Gut
An unhealthy gut may have:
- An imbalanced immune response, which may result in allergies, autoimmunity, and food sensitivities
- Inability to produce and secrete adequate digestive liquids and enzymes, leading to indigestion, nutrient deficiencies, and sometimes bacteria overgrowth
- A weak barrier that allows allergens and bad bacteria toxins to reach your bloodstream, causing chronic inflammation
- Poor communication with the brain, which can lead to mental health disorders and brain fog
- Unhealthy movement that may result in constipation, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and bacteria overgrowth
If you have an unhealthy gut, you may experience symptoms of inflammation that don’t always seem so related to your digestive health. Though problems such as gas, bloating, indigestion, diarrhea, constipation and abdominal pain are rather obvious symptoms of digestion issues, skin problems, brain fog, depression, irritability, fatigue, and weight gain may also be signs of an unhealthy gut.
Probiotic plus prebiotic supplement promote all aspects of a healthy gut. They help balance the immune response, add to your digestive enzyme bank account, strengthen your gut barrier, communicate with your brain, and promote healthy gut movement.
How Probiotics Work
Most supplemental probiotics are transient visitors to your gut. While they are visiting, they share genes and produce substances that produce health benefits. They support your health  by:
- Strengthening your gut barrier by producing beneficial substances, stimulating protective mucus, or preventing bad bacteria from staying in your gut
- Competing with bad bacteria for space and resources
- Producing antimicrobial substances to inhibit the growth of bad bacteria, which can sometimes make your microbiome healthier
- Balancing the immune system, so it can effectively fight off pathogens but also prevent allergic or autoimmune diseases
- Producing enzymes to digest food and food substances we don’t have enzymes to digest
- Processing (activating or degrading) supplements, drugs, hormones, nutrients, and neurotransmitters
- Communicating with your brain through neurotransmitter-like substances and nerves that connects between the brain and the gut
- Producing and activating vitamins, such as vitamin K and some B vitamins
When To Take Probiotics
The goal is to deliver the probiotics to your large intestine relatively intact, so you want to minimize their exposure to your stomach acid and naturally occurring digestive enzymes. When food enters your stomach, your gut secretes digestive enzymes and hydrochloric acid, so it’s best to take your probiotics on an empty stomach. However, if you get stomach upset from taking it without food or cannot take it without food for any other reason, probiotics are still beneficial when taken with meals.
Our P3-OM preparation (freeze-dry method) can withstand stomach acid and digestive enzymes, so you will still experience the benefits even if you take it with meals.
On average, it takes between 9 and 11 hours for food to reach the colon after ingestion. To use P3-OM to support protein digestion, take it in the morning. To use P3-OM to kill bad bacteria in the gut or improve your microbiome, take it at night before bed.
If you are taking antibiotics or supplements that may have antibacterial properties, be sure to take them at least an hour away from your probiotics.
