Some people don’t realize that not all bacteria is bad. Good bacteria can help improve your digestion and keep your stomach working properly.
If you don’t have enough good bacteria you may notice that you have frequent upset stomachs, your brain might not work properly, or you could have vitamin deficiencies.
You could also get some skin conditions, other autoimmune diseases, or just be really stressed.
Here are 7 things to watch out for:
- Digestive Issues – usually the first sign
- Mental Issues – people with some mental disorders also tend gut bacteria issues
- Vitamin and Mineral Deficiencies – body has a harder time getting enough essential vitamins and minerals like: Vitamin D, Vitamin K, Vitamin B12 and B7, Magnesium
- Antibiotics – Antibiotics wipe out bad bacteria, but also good bacteria
- Chronic, Unmanaged Stress – can wreak havoc on your gut
- Skin Conditions – could be due to unbalanced gut bacteria (I know from personal experience)
- Autoimmune Diseases – research is emerging linking autoimmune diseases to unhealthy guts
To make sure your stomach bacteria stays balanced you should be sure to avoid toxins, eat fermented foods like yogurt or cheeses, and take probiotic supplements. More details at:
