5 Secret Health Benefits of Probiotics
The benefits of probiotics go way beyond better digestive health. This “good bacteria” affects so many parts of the body, from your skin to your smile.
If you want your body to “go pro,” keep reading for 5 secret health benefits of adding probiotics to your daily diet …
1. Happier Mood
Did you know that probiotics are food for your mood? It’s true! In fact, the gut-brain connection is so strong that scientists often refer to the gut as the body’s “second brain.”
When bacteria levels in your gut are out of whack, it can make you more prone to moodiness, depression and anxiety. Likewise, a happy gut can give you a happier mood and help you cope better with stress.
2. Better Oral Health
“You have a cavity.” Tired of hearing this when you or your kiddos visit the dentist?
Or maybe your big dental woe is bad breath even though you brush and floss diligently and dodge stinky foods like onions and garlic.
Well, here’s some news to make you smile: probiotics curb the growth of bacteria in the mouth that cause bad breath, plaque buildup and cavities.
3. Lower Blood Pressure
If you’re looking for natural remedies to help lower your blood pressure, a daily probiotic could be a great choice. Research from nine different studies of 543 adults showed that long-term use of probiotics lowers systolic blood pressure (top number in a reading) by 3.6 mm Hg and diastolic blood pressure (the bottom number) by 2.4 mm Hg.
4. Less Sick Days
When someone around you starts to sneeze or cough, do you automatically know that you’ll catch it next? Consuming probiotics every day will help you develop a ninja-tough immune system that’s more apt to fight off colds and flu. In fact, 70% of your immune system is located in your digestive tract.
Of course, not every immune system is unbreakable. If you do happen to catch something and need an antibiotic (which kills the good bacteria along with the bad), a probiotic can protect you from the unpleasant side effects, like diarrhea and yeast infections.
5. Clear Skin
Did you know? Acne and psoriasis are both linked to gastrointestinal problems. These stubborn skin conditions can be hard to treat. When you add a probiotic to your daily diet, you’ll be able to see the difference in your skin … and everyone else will too!
Where Can You Find Probiotics?
Fermented food and drinks like sauerkraut, kimchi, kefir and kombucha are great sources of probiotics. But what if these items aren’t exactly palate-pleasing to you?
You may find yourself in the same place as a lot of people: in the dairy section at the local grocery store, loading up your cart with yogurt.
Why this matters: If a probiotic can’t survive the journey to the gut, it cannot benefit you.
That’s the reason so many people choose to supplement. It’s an easy-peasy way to get all the probiotics you need on a daily basis. But word to the wise: just like with yogurt, survivability matters.
GanedenBC30® is a powerful, patented and clinically proven probiotic that has the highest survivability of a probiotic on the market.
Studies prove it.
An independent lab study found that GanedenBC30 had a 78% survival rate passing through the acidic stomach.
Compare that to the leading probiotic yogurt brand with less than 1% survivability.
Each VIBE meal replacement protein shake has 1 billion CFU (colony forming units) of GanedenBC30® – all the probiotics you need on a daily basis for digestive superpowers and better health.
VIBE also boasts 20 grams of pea protein, a full serving of greens, and Zychrome® for healthy insulin levels so you can feel great as you lose some weight!
