Our ‘Probio7 Advanced’ is featured in The Mirror.
We were really excited when Probio7 was featured in The Mirror to help those suffering from leaky gut syndrome.
Inside our gut we have an intestinal epithelial lining that forms a tight barrier. This barrier can control what substances enter the blood stream. When this barrier becomes disrupted, the permeability can increase which allows partially undigested foods, toxins and pathogens to enter into our bloodstream which would not normally be absorbed, causing a “leaky gut”. This can trigger the immune system, resulting in systemic inflammation (inflammation throughout the body) resulting in bloating, gas, cramps, fatigue, headaches and joint pain. However, it may also lead to more severe health problems including; food allergies, migraine, tiredness and chronic fatigue syndrome, asthma and skin conditions such as eczema.
Leaky gut syndrome can be caused by a wide range of factors including an overgrowth of yeast in the bowel, an imbalance in your gut bacteria (dysbiosis), a poor diet, heavy alcohol usage, stress and the overuse of antibiotics.
Supplementing with friendly bacteria can help support gut function, reduce inflammation and reduce the risk of leaky gut syndrome.
