Why A Probiotic ?

10 Ways a Probiotic helps you!!

 
And we have many pharmacists and nurses in #oneplexus that emphatically state ours is the BEST on the market!! I believe it because it has helped me with many of the things on this list!!!
1. Weight Loss – New studies suggest that a mix of bad and good bacteria in our guts could play a role in weight gain. Ensuring that you are getting lots of good bacteria alongside a healthy diet and fitness regime could help to reduce unwanted weight around your middle.
2. Mood – Not many people are aware of how well connected the brain and the gut are. Research has indicated that maintaining a healthy gut flora could help to reduce anxiety and lower levels of brain activity linked to emotion and pain while increasing activity associated with decision making.
3. Sleep – The gut is largely responsible for the production of the ‘happy hormone’ serotonin, which is needed to make the ‘relaxation hormone’, melatonin. Taking a multi-strain probiotic could therefore boost the production of these hormones to help you sleep soundly.
4. Stress – Stress can disturb the mixture of bacteria in our gut, allowing for increased production of bad bacteria. Stress has been shown to irritate or aggravate a range of diseases; probiotics could therefore be a valuable tool for encouraging the growth of beneficial bacteria which supports healthy immune functions.
5. Fatigue – A lack of energy could arise when you aren’t getting the vital vitamins and nutrients from your food needed to keep you functioning at your best. A multi-strain probiotic such as Bio-Kult could help to sustain healthy levels of good bacteria, to help you absorb the goodness from the food you’re eating. A healthy gut flora also aids in the production of extra B vitamins, which are essential for energy production throughout the body.
6. Teeth – In recent years, there has been a lot of interest in the use of probiotics and the maintenance of a healthy gut flora in preventing and treating oral infections, including dental caries, periodontal disease and halitosis.
7. Bloating – It is the bad bacteria in the gut which can produce gas and cause bloating in the stomach. Sugary foods can feed this bacteria, helping it to multiply. Taking a multi-strain probiotic could help to top up the beneficial bacteria to prevent an imbalance in the gut and reduce the effects of bloating.
8. Seasonal affective disorder – Taking a daily probiotic has been shown to increase vitamin D levels – well known to be low during the winter months – by more than 25%, and to modulate the area of the brain responsible for mood.
9. Allergies – Allergies are said to be a malfunction of your immune system. With 70% of the immune system lying in the gut, maintaining a healthy gut flora could help to manage the various symptoms of allergies.
10. Irritable bowel syndrome – IBS is associated with an imbalance of the normal ‘friendly’ bacteria in the intestine, and is becoming increasingly common in our modern busy lifestyles. A multi-strain probiotic could help top up levels of healthy bacteria supportive of healthy digestive function.

Benefits of Pomegranate

Health Benefits of Pomegranates

Anti-cancer:

  1. Pomegranate has anti-inflammatory effects that may protect against cancer and other chronic diseases.6-7
  2. Pomegranate has anti-angiogenic properties, meaning that they may help to prevent growing tumors from acquiring a blood supply, preventing those tumors from receiving the nutrients that would allow them to grow larger.8-10
  3. Pomegranate is one of the few foods (mushrooms are another) that contain natural aromatase inhibitors. This means that they inhibit the production of estrogen, which can reduce breast cancer risk.11
  4. After treatment for prostate cancer, two studies have shown that pomegranate juice or supplements slowed the increase in PSA.12

Protects Against Heart Disease

  1. Pomegranate phytochemicals reduce LDL oxidation (a contributor to atherosclerotic plaque development).13
  2. Pomegranate phytochemicals have blood pressure-reducing properties.14-15
  3. In a study of patients with severe carotid artery blockages, after one ounce of pomegranate juice daily for one year, there was a 30 percent reduction in atherosclerotic plaque. In striking contrast, in the participants who did not take the pomegranate juice atherosclerotic plaque increased by 9 percent.13

Guards Memory and Brain Function

  1. Pomegranate supplements taken before and after surgery prevented the postoperative memory dysfunction associated with coronary artery bypass or heart valve surgery.16
  2. In those with mild memory complaints, individuals drinking pomegranate juice daily performed better on a memory task compared to placebo and displayed increased brain activation measured by functional MRI.17

Removing the edible arils from the pomegranate is easy when you know how to do it. The easiest way is to cut it around the diameter, split it into two and then pound the back with the back of a large serving spoon. The flavor and health benefits of pomegranate make the effort well worth it.
