Maintaining a healthy bacterial flora in your gut is a form of economical health insurance. The overuse of antibiotics and the over-consumption of processed foods have been significant threats to our health. There are more than 500 species of bacteria that take up residence in your colon. It is estimated that these bacteria account for as much as 3 pounds of …your body weight. Many of the diseases we suffer (heart attack, stroke, psoriasis, asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, allergies, ulcerative colitis, bowel problems) are a direct result of an imbalance of the bacterial flora in the GI tract. Remember, improving the bacterial flora of your GI tract is one of the best forms of improving your health on a daily basis.
