ALL gut bacteria are bad is what scientists USED to think.
This started in 1941 with the first successful use of penicillin on an active infection.
Once doctors saw how quickly and how well the patient recovered, they immediately decided that all bacteria (including your gut bacteria) were bad.
And wiping them out with overwhelming antibiotic use became the norm.
Fast forward to today...
Clearly we know this is NOT the case...especially in your gut.
You NEED to have a large diversity of gut bacteria not only for good digestion, you need it to keep your immune system strong and your mood elevated as well.
When your gut bacteria is off...YOU are off.
The gut has a tremendous impact on just about everything you do and feel in your life...it's quite astonishing when you get into the science of it.
In fact, I actually wrote an entire book on how to systematically rebalance your gut bacteria to eliminate sugar cravings (The 3 Day Craving Killer Protocol).
What's the BEST way to balance your gut bacteria?
Probiotics are one of the first things that comes to mind. Obviously, you need to actually HAVE the bacteria in your gut for it work.
Prebiotics are next...this is the "growth medium" for the probiotics.
Finally, there are polyphenols.
Polyphenols are essentially the "food" and "fertilizer" for your gut bacteria.
What are polyphenols good for?
According to WebMD..."studies show that people who have polyphenol-rich diets — consuming more than 650 milligrams per day — have lower death risks than those who get less than 500 milligrams per day. "
- Improve your heart health
- Lower your risk of diabetes
- May block tumor growth and kill active cancer cells
- Activate and support your immune system
- and much more!
Where can I get polyphenols?
There are literally THOUSANDS of them...you eat polyphenols every single day, especially if you eat a lot of fruits and vegetables.
However, if you DON'T get a lot of fruits and veggies on a daily basis, you may not be getting ENOUGH polyphenols in your diet to really make a big difference in your health.
On top of that, research has shown that DIVERSITY of intake (i.e. a wide variety of fruits and veggies) is extremely important for best health results.
This need for diversity is a problem....after all, who has the time and money to buy, prepare and eat 30 or more different fruits and veggies on a daily basis?
Definitely not me.
It's a new "greens" product I've been testing out that was put together with a very specific focus on maximizing the amount of polyphenols you get.
It contains more than 30 organic fruits and veggies (and probiotics and prebiotics) to help you get that high level of diversity that is necessary to get the most benefits from polyphenols.
And it tastes AWESOME...like sipping a fruit drink on the beach awesome...hence the name.
Here's a close-up shot of what's in it...
This is hands-down one of the BEST greens supplements I've ever taken.
I remember vividly the very first greens supplement I ever tried called "Barley Green"...it tasted like I just mowed the lawn with my face.
But I choked it down because it was "good" for me.
Greens have come a LONG way since then... :)
You take greens to get health benefits...
I know I'll definitely be getting more of it for sure.
