Is There Bad Gut Bacteria in You.  Your gut bacteria needs to be “good” but sometimes it is “bad”. When the bad is overpowering the good, it can overpower our health and cause IBS type symptoms and other health challenges. 

Keeping your colon healthy and functioning properly is essential to feeling healthy and being active in life.  Symptoms associated with GI (Gastrointestinal) disorders include persistent diarrhea, constipation, bloating, indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome, and malabsorption.

Having a non-invasive, very comprehensive stool test  is a simple way that can help assess digestive and absorptive functions and the presence of gut bacteria in you.  Nutrients must be appropriately digested and then efficiently absorbed into the bloodstream. Eating a diverse diet rich in whole foods (that means stuff from the earth) can also bring diversity to your gut bacteria. Gut bacteria should be diverse. 

Learning what types of gut bacteria you have can make an enormous difference in your life and health! We need several good gut bacteria at optimal levels to create a healthy and happy gut environment.

Lactobacillus acidophilus
These are the most friendly bacteria. Lactobacillus is the genus name, and acidophilus is the particular strain. They are naturally present in dairy products and are added to miso, tempeh, yogurt, and other dietary supplements for better results. They produce vitamin K, lactate, and hydrogen peroxide. In the human body, they are found in the oral cavity, intestine, vagina, etc. These areas have slightly acidic pH because of these microbes. This helps curb the overgrowth of pathogens. In the vagina, these bacteria produce lactic acid that prevents fungal growth. They are used to treat diarrhea too. Thus, microorganisms help strengthen the immune system.

Acidophilus Bifidus
They produce lactic acid and hydrogen peroxide. They help curb the growth of pathogens. Some lactic acid bacteria help reduce cholesterol levels by breaking down bile, thus restricting its re-absorption. They prevent the growth of hostile yeasts like Candida albicans. They cleanse the bloodstream by removing toxins and boost the immune system. While killing pathogens, antibiotics also kill helpful bacteria. Consumption of Bifidobacterium when on antibiotics can minimize the risk.

Escherichia coli
This gut bacteria are present in the intestine and are also known as enteric bacteria. Probiotic Escherichia coli Nissle 1917 is used to treat bowel diseases like ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, chronic constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, etc.
