We have all had that champion poo, you know, the one that makes you take a second look and think, damn, I did that??! On the flip side, we have all had those days when we daydream of just being able to go and not feel bloated and full of sh$t.
This teeter-totter is the story of my life and I can never seem to put my finger on exactly what my body loves and what it is reacting too. There will be weeks of regularity and then suddenly, weeks of bloating and reminiscing of regularity. For me, the change affects my entire body, physically and mentally. Regularity means lots of energy, great sleep, mental clarity and ability to focus. Not regular produces just the opposite: lack or energy, restless sleep, forgetfulness and inability to focus.
There is a really importance to #2. Not only does irregularity affect your physical and psychological well-being, it can affect your immune system, skin, and everything else from the top of your head to the bottom of your feet.
How do you fix it? Here are the most common answers: drink more water, eat more fiber (from plants), exercise, and cut back sugar. But, if you are like me, you already do that. One additional thing that helps combat a gut full of fecal matter is probiotics.
We’ve probably all heard the term “probiotics” thrown around at some point. Between yogurt, chocolate, cheese, and various cabbage preparations (notably sauerkraut and kimchee), it seems that probiotics are all over the place. They are everywhere—but what do probiotics do? And, why do we want them?
The short answer is that probiotics are specific bacteria strains that are naturally found in all of our digestive systems. These bacterial strains help keep our digestion system in balance, providing a number of beneficial functions.
