Probiotics are so important for our bodies – they affect our gut health, which in turn affects other parts of our bodies.
Having a healthy gut is the key to preventing diseases, managing and losing weight, and so much more!
The research keeps coming in–and I’m continually SHOCKED by just how important having a healthy gut can be for your health.
One renowned medical doctor, Dr. Steven Masley, has done a lot of research in the field of probiotics and their impact on your health. Here’s what he has to say about the connection between your gut health and heart disease in particular:
For decades, scientists have blamed heart disease on red meat intake because it is loaded with cholesterol and saturated fat. The advice was a pillar of preventive medicine: ‘Limit red meat intake to avoid heart disease’.
But a problem has emerged with that cause-and-effect advice, as several studies now question whether consuming cholesterol or saturated fact necessarily impacts heart disease.
It turns out there may be something else about red meat that increases your risk for a heart attack or stroke, independent of cholesterol and saturated fat. The connection appears to be between red meat and your gut microbiome.
… I have also been researching how the gut microbiome impacts most of the major risk factors for heart disease: inflammation, obesity, cholesterol, diabetes, insulin resistance, and high blood pressure. If you maintain a healthy balance of microbes—nurturing the beneficial ones and eliminating those that do damage—you’ll enhance your control of these important risk factors, as well.
Having a healthy gut can be achieved through probiotics. It’s so easy to add more probiotics to your diet – whether it’s through what you eat, a supplement, or both.
It is important to outline exactly why gut health and probiotics can help us because it’s so easy to make this change and include probiotics in your life, and the benefits are extensive!
If you’ve made it this far, I know you now fully understand the importance of probiotics and gut health. So get out there and start making your body happy!
You will see and feel the change!
