Our gastrointestinal health is often overlooked as an important factor when it comes to a fat loss lifestyle. Our gut holds hundreds of different bacteria that are essential for our health and immune system. These ‘good’ bacteria, or microflora, prevent allergies and decrease stress and chances of inflammation but above all they have a huge effect on nutrient absorption. Therefore using probiotics and foods that improve a healthy gut can make a big difference. For what’s the use of eating clean and taking supplements when the nutrients are not absorbed and used?
Note: especially consider taking probiotics after using antibiotics or when you have used antibiotics in the past! Antibiotics tend to destroy microflora. With so many different bacteria and probiotics it’s advised to explore which probiotics will suit you best.
