A Disturbing Way An Upset Stomach Could Upset Your Life
Upset stomachs are no fun to deal with.
I think we can all agree on that, and if you’re the kind of person who doesn’t mind an upset stomach then answer me this.
Do you enjoy throwing up?
Do you like having diarrhea?
Do you enjoy cold sweats, stomach cramps, gas and bloating?
I can’t imagine that many of you would say “yes” to any of these, and if you did you’re weird. That’s my professional opinion as a physician.
The fact of the matter is an upset stomach could easily ruin your day, your week, and in some instances if you don’t support the health of your stomach it can have some pretty dramatic effects on the quality of your life.
What do I mean by that you may ask?
Obviously if your stomach was upset all the time you’d be pretty miserable, at least from a physical standpoint.
What you may not realize however, is that an upset stomach could also have a detrimental effect on your emotional and mental health.
There is a direct connection between the health of your gut AND your brain.
I’m going to expand on that in detail in this article, but before I do I need to let you know about a product that I think may stand above the rest for helping to support your gut health so that you can have an amazing life filled with happiness, positivity and adaptability.
Let’s do this.
How Your Gut Health Affects Your Brain Health
Your entire digestive system, but especially your gut (think of your intestines specifically) is responsible for so much of your total health.
We know that it’s the seat of your immune system…
And that part of your nervous system resides there too.
And every single day we’re discovering just how closely linked it is to your brain health.
One of the aspects of gut health that we’re well aware of is when bad bacteria over-populate and colonize the microbiome and grow unchecked they produce incredible amounts of toxic waste within your gut that your body is then forced to try and eradicate through an inflammatory response.
This disturbance can have far-reaching effects, and one of them is how the presence of inflammation can alter neurotransmitter signaling.
Essentially, the pro-inflammatory cytokines that are emitted by the presence of inflammation throw off how neurotransmitters normally function.
And this is why it’s so incredibly important to try and keep the presence of bad bacteria suppressed.
Over the past decade I’ve come to discover that while probiotics (good bacteria) are a great way to help colonize the microbiome with bacteria that aid in digestion, there are definitely a few probiotics in particular that help to control your body’s inflammatory response.
There are thousands upon thousands of probiotics, and we’re discovering more everyday.
Recent revelations in probiotic research indicate that to help maintain healthy brain activity you should take those that are known to support mood.
The team of researchers at Life Extension have scoured the research available on these kinds of probiotics and have come to find that 2 of the best are:
Lactobacillus helveticus Rosell-52 ME^
Bifidobacterium longum Rosell-175 ME^
On top of that, this product also has an extract of the world’s most expensive spice, saffron.
Life Extension didn’t put that in there so they could make a big to-do about their supplement having saffron in it… instead, the decision to include it has to do with how antioxidants in saffron have been shown to help support the body’s response to pro-inflammatory cytokines that may interfere with brain function.
The combination of these “ingredients” allows for good bacteria to grow in your digestive tract, and help to both wipe out the bad bacteria that are triggering inflammation while allowing your body to mount a response that helps to keep inflammation in check while enhancing your mood.
Basically, by eliminating an upset stomach, you begin to feel better all over, and your outlook on life and your mental resilience are increased!
It’s a pretty good thing to experience, and I have confidence that if most Americans fixed their gut issues then our nation’s mental health epidemic would be lessened tremendously.
For you, one of the easiest places to start with improving your mood is by taking Life Extension FLORASSIST® Mood Improve.
