Does your digestive system ever feel... off? Do you ever get constipated? Have acid reflux? Confession time: I do!
I partnered with ISOThrive [http://isot.us/PH33]—a gastroenterologist-endorsed, bacterially fermented microFood —to try out a new solution for digestive health, and to share a little bit about their philosophy. And let me tell you, I have learned so much about nutrition and digestion!
The first thing I learned was why those probiotic yogurts never made me feel any better—the bacteria they were touting never made it to the part of my gut where they were needed! MicroFood feeds the bacteria that are already in your gut, but aren't getting the nutrition they need. Brilliant, right?
BUT I EAT A HEALTHY DIET
Even if you eat a healthy diet, some of your bacteria are starving. And why is that important? They produce the primary energy source for your colon. So if they’re not fed, your colon can’t function properly. Researchers (like Justin Sonnenburg at Stanford University) are now telling us that starving bacteria will start eating the mucus lining of the gut to survive. When this happens, the colon cells become “flabby” and digestive residue can leak out of the gut, causing a systemic immune system response, chronic inflammation and a variety of chronic health conditions (like IBS, constipation, autoimmune conditions, allergies and even colon cancer).
WHAT CAN I DO TO FEED THESE BACTERIA?
The common factor in all these conditions is inactive bacteria or bacterial imbalance. The current medical standard of care is purely symptom management without addressing the root cause of the condition. The good news is that the situation can be reversed when you add fermented microFood back into the diet. ISOThrive does just that. It contains a non-digestible carbohydrate known as MIMO (maltosyl-iso-malto-oligosaccharides) which is the same type of microFood found in bacterially fermented foods like sauerkraut, kimchi and fermented sourdough bread. The best part is, instead of a sour, salty taste, ISOThrive is a lightly sweet daily treat. I’m going to try ISOThrive and report back.
I can't wait to see what ISOThrive does for me! I'll be sure to keep you all updated with my personal experience with this product!
