You know those ‘good’ probiotics you’re always hearing about? This is where they live – in the large intestine! Probiotics and probiotic foods are targeted toward supporting our beneficial bacteria which can have an impact on every system in the body!
This is also where we look to see if there are any parasites, worms, pathogenic bacteria, overgrowth or lack of beneficial bacteria which can give us great insight into what might be going on behind the scenes to cause digestive issues.
We always need the right balance between good bacteria and bad bacteria in our gut to make sure that our digestive system runs smoothly. You know the saying ‘too much of a good thing’? That applies to beneficial bacteria too!
So before you rush out and start taking probiotics to solve your digestive problems…let’s start by recognizing what the real cause might be.
