There is good bacteria and bad bacteria in your gut, but what exactly are good bacteria? One good bacteria very important to optimal gut health is called L. Acidophilus. This bacteria helps to maintain a healthy intestinal wall, help nutrients absorb properly and aid overall digestive ability. If this bacteria is low there may be digestive difficulties, diarrhea and a weakened immune response. L. acidophilus produces lactic acid and hydrogen peroxide, which create unfavorable conditions for the growth of harmful bacteria.
Another good bacteria that needs to be populated in the gut is B. Bifidum. This is the first bacteria to colonize in the intestines from birth. Bifidum can help prevent bad bacteria from growing along with molds and yeast. It also helps breakdown food to aid in digestion of nutrients. Some people have the bacteria H Pylori in their stomach which can led to stomach ulcers. Bifidobacterium bifidum can help repair these stomach ulcers caused by the bad bacteria. This bacteria can also help prevent or reduce constipation.
So, not only does our stool collection kit test for harmful bacteria, yeast and parasites, it also tests the important levels of good gut stuff or good bacteria. We have seen many test results come back where the bad bacteria levels are normal but there is NG (no growth) for several of the good and necessary bacteria levels. Symptoms of NG can vary from simple gut discomfort to bloating, digestive issues, belching, bloating, constant sicknesses, acne, hair loss due to poor absorption and more.
If you are concerned about the GOOD stuff and the BAD stuff in your gut order our stool collection kit TODAY and get answers. Along with your test results we will send you a personal protocol to support optimal health and wellness.
