How To Treat Anxiety Symptoms by Treating the Gut

Ruscio. Did you know that many cases of anxiety can Actually be caused by your gut, Let ’ s discuss a systematic review that reviewed All of the available randomized control trials, establishing thankfully, that treatments For your gut can actually improve your anxiety Now here. ’ s! A study by Yang et al., published In the Journal of General Psychiatry – And I ’ ll – put the abstract up here on the Screen entitled “ Effects of regulating intestinal microbiota on anxiety, symptoms, A systematic review.

, ” Again a systematic review, will often review The available randomized control trials and summarize the findings, So this is arguably the highest level of scientific Evidence, Thankfully, what they ’ ve, concluded—as I ’ ll outline here in a moment—is that treatments for the gut can improve anxiety. Very very thankfully. So let ’ s dig into some of the details. To quote “ More and more basic studies have Indicated that gut microbiota can regulate brain function through the gut-brain axis.

And dysbiosis of intestinal microbiota was related to anxiety. However, there is no specific evidence to Support treatment of anxiety by regulating intestinal microbiota. ” Well. I would not agree with that, but this Is what they ’ re trying to rectify, So the aim of their study “ To find evidence Supporting improvements in anxiety, symptoms by regulating intestinal microbiota., ” Now intestinal microbiota is another way.

Of saying the world of bacteria and fungus and other like organisms in your gut, Let ’ s continue. “ Methods., ” This systematic review of randomized control. Trials, looked through 3,334 articles and only 21 were high-quality enough to be included. In this analysis, with a total of about 1500 patients over the 21 studies, Here, ’ s where things get really exciting. Let ’ s look at the effect of the treatment.

Study “ 14 studies chose probiotics, as interventions ” And “ six chose non-probiotic ways: ” mostly diet, The diet most often used—although, not exclusively—what, Is known as the low FODMAP diet, a diet that helps to starve bacterial overgrowths, which Can be problematic, can cause gut symptoms and inflammation and through the gut-brain Connection can cause anxiety Now regarding probiotics, you ’ ll, hear claims That a certain special probiotic is the best for anxiety or depression, And for years now I ’ ve been saying that Probiotics are not that specific Probiotics are not like drugs that operate On a very narrow pathway or mechanism, Rather probiotics in helping to heal and Rebalance the gut can have a wide array of improvements that they lead to because they Are oftentimes treating the underlying cause gut imbalances of multiple symptoms? This is how we can see different probiotic Formulas show improvements in things like various skin conditions, allergic conditions, Neurologic conditions, as we ’ re discussing here like anxiety There, ’ s also other evidence showing improvements.

In things like depression and the ability to fight various bacteria and fungus in the Gut and improve symptoms of IBS gas, bloating, constipation, loose stools and diarrhea. Thankfully, regarding the probiotics again, A specific special probiotic formula was not needed: Various probiotic formulas from single strain All the way up through multiple strain probiotics all showed benefit. What that tells you is you don? ’ t have to Be highly prescriptive or specific, with the probiotic that you use and you don ’ t have To be held hostage necessarily by marketing claims that you must use only this probiotic Or that probiotic in attempts to improve your gut-brain connection and therefore anxiety Here, ’ s where things get really exciting And I ’ ll quote: “ 56 % of studies could Improve anxiety, symptoms.

” 56 over half of the studies, whether they ’ re, Using probiotic or diet most, namely the low FODMAP diet, showed the ability to improve Anxiety, That is huge If you look at the outcome of many medical Interventions, a 50 % response rate is pretty darn good, especially for conditions that Can be multifactorial in cause as anxiety can Let me now read you their conclusion and I quote: “ We find that more than half of the studies included showed it was positive.

To treat anxiety, symptoms by regulation of the intestinal, microbiota, ” or treating Your gut “, There are two kinds of interventions: (, probiotic, And non-probiotic interventions, ) “ —remember that the most often used, although not exclusive, Non-Probiotic intervention was a diet known as the low FODMAP diet— ” to regulate intestinal Microbiota and it should be highlighted that the non-probiotic interventions were more Effective than the probiotic interventions.

” This makes sense. It makes sense that diet should come first. Before using a supplement, So great “, More studies are needed to clarify this Conclusion, since we still cannot run meta-analysis, so far. ” A little bit of caution there, A meta-analysis would mean that there are Many like studies that can be summarized to give a specific numeric score of the efficacy Or effectiveness of the treatment We ’ re, still short of that, However, for those who are looking to an anti-anxiety Or antidepressant medication or natural therapies, it certainly seems tenable to start at least With a reasonable trial on diet and probiotics, see if your symptoms improve and if not Then consider medication And I would always do this under the guidance Of your doctor and keeping your doctor in the loop But great news here that those who are suffering With anxiety have some great natural nutritional and supplemental options that have at least Some high-level preliminary evidence supporting their effectiveness.

Now, what can you do? Well, we want to improve the health of your Gut or improve the health of your intestinal microbiota, There are really three things. I ’ d recommend Here, specifically, in light of both my clinical experience and what this study has found, One improve your diet. You don ’ t necessarily have to go to the Low FODMAP diet right out of the gate That ’ s a little bit more of a specialty.

Diet, If you haven ’ t gotten sodas sweeteners, Sugars and processed foods out of your diet, of course, start there Focus on cooking all of your own food and Consuming whole fresh foods, Nothing pre-packaged, nothing, processed, Buying meat, vegetables, fruit, fish, eggs Start there. If you ’ re already doing that, then you can Go to a trial on the low FODMAP diet. I will put our low FODMAP diet up here on The screen and also link to it, I believe this to be one of the most up-to-date Low FODMAP diets available because we do follow the research literature here closely.

And update continuously our low FODMAP diet, as new evidence becomes available regarding The FODMAP content in various foods So basic dietary changes. If you ’ re already, there low FODMAP diet And you only need a couple weeks to start Seeing improvements from this diet, if it will work for you Now, if you ’ ve, given this diet a few weeks And you ’ re not noticing any movement of your symptoms, any improvement.

Then you can Go on a probiotic protocol Again, the probiotics are not highly specific. However, I have found it very effective to Try a well-rounded probiotic protocol. Some people will not fully respond to just One probiotic or one strain of probiotic because they need more of a litany of healthy probiotics. That is why I ’ ve developed the three-category System which ensures that you ’ ll, have one good probiotic formula from the three major Categories – I ’ ve linked you all the information here.

Essentially when we look at the probiotic Research, we see that, amongst all the hundreds of studies we can organize most probiotics Into one of three categories, You want to try all three of these categories: In combination to help give your gut the broadest healthiest probiotic stimulus possible, This can be the difference between success. And failure for some people, You also want to make sure that you ’ re using A quality probiotic, Of course, some companies will cut corners.

And not put very much bacteria in there. They ’ ll, put a lot of filler in there to Be able to have a very cheap probiotic, however, you ’ re, getting what you pay for That! ’ s, also, not to say that the most expensive Probiotic is the best. There is a balance here to be struck and I think we ’ ve, really achieved that in the three-category probiotic protocol that we Recommend, In close, if you have anxiety, fortunately, There ’ s some very high-quality preliminary evidence showing that various treatments for Your gut—most, namely a low FODMAP diet and probiotics—can, be effective and improve.

Your anxiety, If you are suffering with anxiety, don, ’ t Suffer another day Take some steps to perform these simple interventions. That cannot only improve your anxiety, but if you let ’ s, say, have constipation or Abdominal pain and anxiety, these dietary changes or probiotics could help with all Of those symptoms, When we use natural medicines that treat the Cause we oftentimes see side benefits rather than side effects, and you are positioned.

To reap all the rewards of that Again, this is Dr. Ruscio reporting in on A very exciting systematic review on the power of the gut-brain connection and how you can Use this to improve your anxiety, I hope this information helps you get healthy. And get back to your life

Daily Gut Health Routine: Gut Rebuild Nutrients + Probiotics

Ruscio and I’d like to share With you, my daily gut health routine, which involves the use of our Gut, Rebuild Nutrients, And our three probiotics Now you’ve likely heard me discuss probiotics Before but I haven’t spoken as much about gut rebuilding or repairing nutrients, which Do have a time and a place in a gut health and gut healing program. So I’d like to share my experience with you.

Using the various agents I’ve experimented with and how I’ve come to use Gut, Rebuild Nutrients plus probiotics on a daily basis, as my long-term gut health maintenance plan, I should mention that our Gut Rebuild Nutrients Is a blend of glutamine aloe, zinc, licorice and a few other select gut-supportive nutrients. Now, as you may know, in college, I had an Intestinal parasitic infection, which led me to feel quite terrible Brain fog, fatigue, insomnia, feeling cold And treatment, for that was very, very helpful.

I wouldn’t say it got me all the way to my Goal of feeling 100 % but certainly was a huge step forward. I improved even more when a few years later, I got myself on all three probiotics, That’s one of the main reasons why I recommend Using all three together, because that gave me another substantial jump forward in terms Of how I was feeling And then I finally saw what I would consider A satisfactory level of symptomatic improvement once I added in—along with our three probiotics—the Gut Rebuild nutrient cocktail, And I’ve been doing that now for about a year.

As I said, I felt much better after treating The parasitic infection with a combination of antibiotics and herbal antimicrobials A massive step in the right direction. However, I still had some lingering food sensitivities. And symptoms that would indicate I was having a food sensitivity reaction. I had a hard time with beef, eggs, spinach Alcohol and caffeine, regrettably – And this would oftentimes manifest as bloating Or brain fog or potentially loose stools, or even some fatigue And even chapped lips, which is actually an Example of the gut-skin connection In looking back over the past several years, A big jump forward in terms of how I felt came after clearing that parasite I’d say about 70 to 80 % improvement, But there were still some lingering symptoms.

Probiotics got me another 15 % or so, and Then another 15 %, or so when adding in the Gut Rebuild Nutrients. I really saw what I would consider fairly Robust health, when using the probiotics plus the gut-supporting nutrients together, Where I finally achieved this ability to not Be worried about what I was eating and was able to drink alcohol While it ’ s, not something I want to do all The time it was nice to have that freedom, But to be able to drink alcohol have caffeine.

And have some of these other foods that were kind of a problem for me was a big win: Beef, eggs, spinach raw vegetables? Also, Why? I think the probiotics, combined with the Gut Rebuild Nutrients works so well is because probiotics work to support balance in your Microbiota, bacterial and fungal balance, Whereas the Gut Rebuild Nutrients will help To support and repair the lining of the intestinal tract When we use these together, we have this nice Dual support: one for the microbiota, the bacteria fungus and similar areas, the other For the actual tissues or the lining of your gut And that’s why I think, together these pair Very nicely, And for me it was the combination that finally Got me over the hump and to what I would consider my goal level of health And what does the evidence show? Fortunately, there is a significant body of Research supporting both glutamine the main active ingredient in this formula and some Of the other select ingredients, So let’s start with glutamine and I’d like To start with the highest level of evidence, a meta-analysis which has essentially found That glutamine reduced leaky, gut and markers of intestinal damage To have a meta-analysis finding is very, very Encouraging Continuing to quote in patients with IBS And in leaky gut “ oral dietary, glutamine supplements dramatically and safely reduced All major IBS-related, endpoints” or symptoms, So that’s great.

That’S the results of a randomized control. Trial So we have a meta-analysis highest level: Evidence randomized control trial Continuing here regarding the evidence for Glutamine another review of several studies stated “ Inflammation has been shown to Be a cause of intestinal diseases such as ulcerative, colitis, Crohn’s Disease and colorectal Cancer… Several lines of evidence indicate that glutamine Has an anti-inflammatory property.

..” Very encouraging And another review quoting again: “ glutamine Supplementation can improve barrier function in several experimental conditions of injury. And in some clinical situations,.” – And this conclusion was also echoed by another Paper Now not all of the data on glutamine agree, And there are some data showing no benefit. From glutamine, Namely in a review paper, looking at the effect Of glutamine in active Crohn’s Disease, So this is a very specific patient population.

With an active inflammatory disease, So we want to consider that when looking at All the evidence, I think it’s a very reasonable conclusion. To state that, if you’re suffering with digestive symptoms of any sort at least a trial on Glutamine is something to consider, And other human studies have found that other Select ingredients in Gut, Rebuild Nutrients can also be effective And, to quote again, licorice and slippery Elm “ significantly improved both bowel habit and IBS symptoms in patients with constipation-predominant Ibs.

” Also regarding licorice and chamomile to Quote “ shown to be safe and effective in the treatment of mild gastrointestinal disorders….” Aloe vera, to quote “, is effective and safe for the treatment of patients with IBS compared To placebo,.” And zinc, carnosine has been shown to improve The gut mucosa, A clinical trial found zinc, was able to reduce Diarrhea So we see some fairly significant evidence: Showing that the ingredients contained in Gut Rebuild Nutrients can improve leaky gut Improve barrier function, reduce inflammation and improve the symptoms of IBS, Certainly some very encouraging scientific Data in human interventional trials and even meta-analyses, showing that this cocktail of Gut-Supporting nutrients can be helpful.

Where does something like Gut Rebuild Nutrients? Fit into your overall health plan: Well, it can really be used at any time and With other treatments, There’s no right or wrong, It can be used as an example, as I do along With probiotics, It can also be used, while administering antimicrobials Of various sorts, If you’re going through the health plan in Healthy Gut Healthy You, I would recommend either adding in Gut Rebuild Nutrients into Step two: the support phase where we use probiotics, if you want it to be really robust in your Support phase or alternatively, after your antimicrobials ( after step, three ), you could Add in the Gut Rebuild Nutrients during step, four Either one is fine.

Those are the two options. I’D recommend for You, But again can really be used at any point. Also remember that not everyone will need This, If you haven’t yet optimized your diet or Tried probiotics, then you may want to start there and consider layering in the Gut Rebuild Nutrients, should you not see optimum response from those? In close, our Gut Rebuild nutrient cocktail. Combined with our three probiotics has been my daily gut health routine.

Now for a little Over a year and it’s been quite effective And if you are trying to optimize your gut Health and still looking to find the ideal support to get you to an acceptable level. Of improvement, I hope you will consider adding our Gut Rebuild Nutrients into your plan. And potentially, also, of course, if you are not doing so already, our probiotics

Can Probiotics Cause SIBO?

Ruscio, Let ’ s discuss the question. Can probiotics cause SIBO? In short, no probiotics cannot cause SIBO, And this is not something that you should Be concerned about, However, what I ’ d like to do is outline What could be a confusing data point in this question and provide you with some tools to Help you navigate through it So can probiotics cause SIBO. The short answer is no.

We have meta-analyses, which are arguably the Highest level of scientific evidence showing that probiotics in fact can treat and act Against and clean out small intestinal bacterial overgrowth in the intestinal tract. However, I have received questions asking Or commenting “, I ’ ve heard probiotics can cause SIBO and that I shouldn ’ t take Them. ” So let ’ s navigate through all these bits.

And bites So I ’ ll, put the abstract up here on the Screen of the study in question that ’ s generating some of the confusion And unfortunately, this study has been referenced. In my opinion very irresponsibly, and has done nothing other than contribute to confusion, And detract from people becoming healthier, It does not mean that people may not have Negative reactions to probiotics – They ’ re rare, But they do happen.

But this study entitled “ Effect of Bifidobacterium Infantis ( or Align Probiotic ) on the Lactulose Breath Test for Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth., ”, Let me read you a few of the details or quotes “ A rise in methane of over 20 parts per Million [ ppm ], ” —so to diagnose SIBO, ( or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth ). We Use a breath test And a rise of over 20 would be considered.

A positive for bacterial overgrowth: This was seen in three subjects: pre probiotic, Administrations or before they administered the probiotics, but in six post probiotic. So this affected three of the 19 subjects. Being studied, So you took a group of essentially 19 people And the probiotic appeared to cause SIBO or A positive breath test in 3 people of 19 in one study. Now you can find a study to show almost anything.

This is why I ’ ve said several times you Should not use one study to inform your decision making. You should look at what the body of evidence Shows at large So when we look at numerous clinical trials, With larger numbers of people—now, we ’ re talking about hundreds, maybe even thousands, Of people—we see the overall effect of probiotics on SIBO is an anti-SIBO effect and also an Anti-Digestive symptom effect And that ’ s where we see here, I ’ m, linking to one systematic review and Also one clinical trial showing that probiotics work better in alleviating digestive symptoms.

In those with SIBO compared to those without SIBO, So while one study yes has shown three people, May obtain SIBO after using a probiotic, the overwhelming majority of data show that both Probiotics can act in an anti-SIBO fashion and probiotics can help to alleviate digestive Symptoms Now that doesn ’ t mean that no one can have Or will have a negative reaction to probiotics? There is a small subset of people who negatively React to probiotics.

This is why, in my book, Healthy Gut Healthy You I outline a 3-category system of probiotics, so you can try one probiotic from each category. To see what category of probiotic has benefit for your gut, And rather than just trying the litany of Products out there you can understand category 1, category 2 category 3 And you can try one probiotic from each ProbioticsSo. It. ’ s really important to understand.

That information can be miscited And someone could in this case be concerned. That a probiotic might be bad for their gut or bad for their SIBO because of one study. And this study showing an effect—in this case a negative effect—in three people: It ’ s very important to weight that against The hundreds, if not thousands, of people who have shown benefit from probiotics both for Sibo and for digestive symptoms, as is summarized in systematic reviews and meta-analyses, that We have available So be cautious with what you read on the internet And I would make sure to filter things that You hear through someone whose opinion you trust, because it is important And information used incorrectly, can actually Detract from your health rather than contributing to your health, So probiotics can help with SIBO, And I would have no reservation using a probiotic If you have SIBO, Of course, use your own experience and some Common sense, If you take a probiotic and you notice a negative Reaction that lasts more than a few days, then a probiotic may not be a good fit for You The reason I say “ more than a few days, ” Is a little bit of turbulence for a few days, as things are balancing out and your body Is adjusting to a probiotic is not abnormal, So you don, ’ t want to jump ship after a little Bit of turbulence for a day Give yourself three to five days And if turbulence or any kind of negative Symptom is still persisting after five days up to a week, then that probiotic is likely Not good for you And try one of the other categories, All right.

This is Dr. Ruscio, And hopefully this information helps you Get healthy and get back to your life!

Fungal Probiotics May Decrease Heart Disease Risk

Ratio in a recent study suggests the answer. This question is: yes, I’ll put the study abstract here up on the screen and essentially what this study did was for eight weeks daily supplementation with Sacramento’s polarity of probiotic was shown to lower remnant lipoprotein by 15 %. Remnant lipoprotein is a predictive biomarker and potential target in the treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease.

According to this study. So again, this study gave a group of patients sacrifices Velarde, which is a healthy probiotic fungus and over the course of eight weeks they saw a 15 % reduction in this cholesterol. Remnant. Lipoprotein is a precursor to LDL cholesterol and total cholesterol, and so it’s in the family of cholesterol and it’s a predictive marker for heart disease risk. So these findings are very interesting and when we look at other findings, looking at other probiotics and other similar studies, we see numerous studies show that probiotics can have a favorable impact on cholesterol levels.

We’Ve also recently discussed how some probiotics can actually lower homocysteine, and this may happen via the probiotics enhancing bacteria levels, in the gut those bacteria producing B vitamins B vitamins. Naturally, these B vitamins in lower homocysteine, which is another risk factor for heart disease, so overall probiotics show a lot of promise for being able to prevent and hopefully decrease, cardiovascular disease and cardiovascular occurrences.

We don’t really have great data that proves that, yet we don’t really have great data showing that if you, if we take two groups of people, one group take a probiotic for the next five years. The other group do not. The group taking the probiotic has a lower incidence of cardiovascular disease or episodes. To my knowledge, we don’t have that data yet, but we have this preliminary data that is showing that probiotics favorably impact some of the markers in the body that the note future risk for a cardiovascular episode, so very promising, I’m hoping is future research is done.

We’Ll see more of the clinical science substantiating the fact that probiotics can in fact help lower risk right now it can improve some of the markers associated with elevated cardiovascular risk and I think, that’s a very encouraging finding, especially when we consider that probiotics are very benign Substances and we’re fairly deficient in exposure to healthy bacteria in many westernize areas, so certainly it’s very plausible that probiotics make sense to help get back some of this missing bacterial exposure, both environmentally and from a lack of eating things like fermented foods.

Also, the positive impact we see from probiotic supplementation’s on gastrointestinal health and you know further increases the favorability of using a probiotic as a general preventive health measure. So again, this study showed that sacrum Isis Velarde a healthy probiotic fungus decrease remnant, lipoprotein, which is a in the family of cholesterol. In a predictive market for heart, disease decrease that market by 15 %.

So if you’re, someone who has a family history of heart disease or you’re, simply trying to prevent heart disease, then supplementing with probiotic, seems to be a reasonable approach or a reasonable recommendation. This is dr. Russo. I hope this information helps you get healthy to get back to your life thanks.

Do Probiotics Cause SIBO? What the Research Shows

Ruscio, Let’s discuss if probiotics cause SIBO ( small Intestinal bacterial overgrowth ): This is a very important question because If you have small intestinal bacterial overgrowth—a condition, where there’s too much bacteria In the small intestine—that has been correlated or is one of the underlying causes of the Symptoms of IBS Gas, bloating, abdominal pain, constipation, And diarrhea all are some, but not the only symptoms that small intestinal bacterial overgrowth Can contribute to If you’re having those symptoms, you’re likely Considering a probiotic as a treatment for those symptoms, So you’d really like to know, could a probiotic—something You ’ re, trying to use to help you—actually make you worse.

The answer to this question is really no Probiotics do not cause small intestinal bacterial Overgrowth, The vast vast majority of the evidence supports That statement, But every once in a while there’s a reference Or a study that is a little bit confusing and needs to be looked at and contextualized I’ll put one study of such up here on the Screen entitled “ Effect of Bifidobacterium infantis 35624 ( Align ) on the Lactulose Breath.

Test for Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth. ” Some have cited this study as showing that Probiotics cause SIBO, and this is really incorrect. Thinking Allow me to explain why that is and help You understand this In this study, 19 people were given the Align Probiotic, After a number of weeks on the probiotic They were given a lactulose SIBO breath test. It was found that three of those 19 patients Had a positive methane reading or a positive breath test for SIBO, But here’s the important context: the “.

Why ” Underlying this, The part we need to understand here is none Of these patients saw a significant increase in their symptoms, A lab finding changed, but symptoms did not Change Very important, The other is to understand the physiology Of probiotics, which are the majority, do not colonize you, While these people are taking probiotics They’Re transiently working their way through the system; Either they die off or come out.

The other End There’s this transient effect that the probiotic Has and then it’s gone While people take the probiotic, they have This transient buildup of probiotics in their system Now this can cause a positive on a lactulose Breath test: Does that mean anything’s bad? In truth, no, The vast majority of the evidence shows that Probiotics can help to fight small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. Those bacteria crowd out the other bacteria Fight fungal overgrowth reduce leaky gut.

Most importantly, perhaps they reduce a litany. Of abdominal symptoms like gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea And there’s even other evidence that probiotics Can help with things like skin and mood just to name a couple, Even though we see a positive breath test, Finding in a small number of patients, ( three of 19 ), that is most likely underlaid by the Fact that these probiotics are transiently in the system causing this positive breath, Test But ostensibly it is also improving.

Much of What’S going on in that person’s intestine, It’s very important not to look at the study. And misrepresent what the study is showing, which some people are doing? That’S really a travesty to a patient, because Probiotics can be a very effective and very helpful treatment, They’re not going to help everyone, but they’re Certainly a great place to start So a good probiotic protocol can do volumes.

For your gut health, for the symptoms of IBS, for general digestive symptoms and for small Intestinal bacterial overgrowth, I recommend three probiotics, both in my clinic And in the book that give you a quality formula from each one of the three major categories: Of probiotic lactobacillus-bifidobacterium blends, a Saccharomyces, boulardii and soil-based Probiotic By using these three together, you really Provide a good, broad stimulus of probiotic to your gut I’ve seen that to be very effective and there’s A good amount of evidence to support all three of these different probiotic formulations To the question does using a probiotic cause.

Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, No, Certainly it’s something to try. A small number of people may have a negative Reaction to a probiotic and that’s okay, If so, just discontinue whatever probiotic You were using that caused that reaction, But for the majority of people they will See a benefit from probiotics; It’s certainly something to consider adding Into your regimen, if you have small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, IBS or really any digestive Condition.

.. And perhaps any condition because we’re finding the gut has such a far-reaching Effect on many systems and parts of the body, This is Dr. Ruscio, and hopefully this helps You better understand the issue of probiotics and SIBO and get healthy and you get back. To your life, Thanks

Probiotics Improve Gas & Constipation by Decreasing Bad Bacteria in the Gut

Ratio and, let’s discuss how probiotics can reduce flatulence and improve constipation by reducing levels of unwanted bacteria. In your gut now, we’ll be talking about a study that was recently published and I’ll put the abstract of the study up here on the screen. The study was entitled methanol, revurb actor attenuation via probiotic intervention reduces flatulence in adult humans, a non-randomized pair design, clinical trial of efficacy.

So, specifically in the study, 21 subjects were given a probiotic that contain a mixture of lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium strains, and they found the abundances of citrobacter Klebsiella methanol and methanol. Reverb actor were reduced, so these are three bacteria that may not be great to have it in high quantities in the gut and the probiotics showed the ability to reduce the abundance of each one of these.

Now, more specifically regarding symptoms as the methanol revurb actor decreased, they did show that, as this bacteria decreased and technically this is not methanol. Revurb actor is not a bacteria. Technically, it’s an RKO. You can think of it like a cousin of a bacteria, but for simplicity sake. We can call it a bacteria. Essentially, as this organism, nathanael revurb actor decreased, there was a corresponding decrease in flatulence also for women.

Only there was a reduction of constipation. Why this is salient? Is this methane or Berber bacter archaea organism has been correlated with reducing the motility in the intestines and has been highly correlated to constipation. So it’s no surprise that we see reduced gas because these organisms produce gas and are a improvement in constipation, because this organism, methanol brevibacterium particular – has been highly correlated with constipation.

So what does this mean? A few notes for you: probiotics exerts, antibacterial effects. This is oftentimes overlooked, but probiotics in fact, one of the one of the main strengths or utilities of probiotics may not be if they colonize you most probiotics. Do not. However, they have a transient impact, one of which is secreting anti-bacterial and anti-fungal peptides. That can help reduce a fungal or bacterial overgrowth in the gut.

So there are other mechanisms, but one important mechanism is the mechanism of reducing unwanted bacteria and fungus, in the gut, by being, ironically, antibacterial and antifungal, by decreasing these levels of unwanted bacteria and fungus. In the gut, then, we can have a reduction of flatulence and improvement in constipation or bowel regularity, amongst other things. Now something else here to be cognizant of is being careful not to get pulled too into marketing claims regarding probiotics probiotics can certainly be helpful, and I encourage people to experiment with probiotics as long as it’s from a reputable company – and you know it’s – it’s a safe Tested form of probiotic that isn’t filled with a bunch of garbage, but you also have to be wary of some of the health claims, because now everyone seems is trying to one-up each other in saying that our probiotic is the the new improved the best.

What have you and one of the things I continually try to bring us back to is looking at the evidence and looking at how we see similar results with with different probiotics in many studies, you’re seeing different perturbations on a certain mixture and they’re all having similar Results, for example, there have been many studies that have shown a ability to reduce gas and or improve constipation with a lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium predominant blend of probiotic.

Is there one special blend or one special strain that will only vector those benefits? No, it doesn’t appear to be the case. Many different formulas with different strains of lactobacillus and different strains of before bacterium, have been trying to have these positive effects. Now, that’s just one class of probiotic there are, in my opinion, three other classes. You have a sacra boulardii probiotic, which is actually the fungus.

You have a soil based probiotic or a spore-forming probiotic, and this will oftentimes have various strains of the bacillus family and if, finally, you have a coli missile, one nine one, seven – and that is another class. There are a few other probiotics that are potentially slight slightly different from those categories, but if you look at the brunt of the research that has been done is it is with one of these four categories and you will see, for example, multiple studies showing an improvement In constipation with probiotics – and rarely is it the same formula – it’s always used, so certainly there may be a time in a place to become more prescriptive with probiotics, but I try to prevent us from making things unnecessarily complicated.

So in this case, we see that a lactobacillus Bifidobacterium blend has the ability to reduce flatulence and improve constipation. The constipation improvement was in women only, but other studies have shown with a similar probiotic improvements in constipation in men and women. So if you’re, someone who has flatulence and/or has constipation a trial of a lactobacillus Bifidobacterium predominant probiotic is certainly worth of trial.

Experimenting with other probiotics. To try to improve your gut health or for other health conditions is certainly warranted. Just be cautious of health claims and make sure that you’re listening to your own body and clearly noticing a benefit from a probiotic in order to qualify it being something that you should use in the long term, if you’re not noticing a clear benefit from it. I wouldn’t continue to use a probiotic because you read how great it was or – or what have you so probiotics can certainly be helpful.

We just have to be a little bit tempered in getting swept up in some of the excitement. Some of the marketing having a practical approach in terms of how we use and apply probiotics, in this case, good news for those with flatulence and or women with constipation. So this is dr. Show, and I hope this information helps you get healthy and get back to your life thanks. You

Probiotics Reduce Inflammation – Scientific Proof

Russo. Let’S talk about probiotics and inflammation, you hear a lot of claims about probiotics. Some are true. Some are not true. What’S nice about a recent study that was published is it gives us very high-level scientific proof that probiotics do in fact help reduce inflammation, specifically an inflammatory marker, known as C reactive protein now I’ll put this study abstract up here on the screen.

This study was what’s known as a systematic review with meta-analysis. What this means is a group of researchers look to perview all the studies on probiotics and inflammation and come up with a summary of what all the scientific evidence shows. So a systematic review with meta-analysis is like a summary of all of the scientific data. So it’s a it’s a great way not to be mislead. You can find one study showing something good in other studies showing something bad that isn’t necessarily super helpful.

But when you look at all the studies now you get a good gauge as to what the majority of the data shows. So in this study, 20 clinical trials were summarized and it was found that probiotics do in fact lower inflammation. Specifically this inflammatory markers c-reactive protein. Now, what else is very interesting is that it wasn’t necessarily one probiotic in particular because of these 20 different studies, the probiotic hues in each study wasn’t the same, so it seems, as a general class probiotics tend to have a ability to reduce inflammation.

So that’s a very important, very encouraging finding and I’ll just quote the conclusion from the researchers here. This meta-analysis suggests that probiotic administration may significantly reduce serum c-reactive protein again c-reactive protein being a marker of inflammation that your doctor can usually run as a blood test. So why is it that probiotics can reduce inflammation well a few thoughts? The gut is a very common source of inflammation and probiotics have been shown to help here, Liggett and therefore they can help reduce inflation point.

One point to your immune system is a major contributor to inflammation. In fact, the way your immune system acts to kill stuff that shouldn’t be there is through inflammation. You can think of your immune cells as having these little inflammatory guns and what the immune cells use to kill things that shouldn’t be. There is actually inflammation. So when there’s problems in the immune system or when the immune system is, is maladjusted or overzealous or what-have-you.

The immune system can cause lots of inflammation. We see this and things like food allergy. When people are reacting, the food is that they shouldn’t the immune system is, is inadvertently or inappropriately attacking food, and that causes inflammation now probiotics have been shown to help with the health dekat, where the highest density of immune cells reside. So if the immune cells are a major source of inflammation and the highest density of immune cells in the body resides in these in the intestines and probiotics help heal the intestines.

It’S not a logical or not a stretch, to see a mechanism here where, by probiotics, helping to heal the gut and improve the immune system in the gut, we can have a great ability of decreasing the inflammatory burden in one’s body now. The other part of this that’s noteworthy is that probiotics may help to reduce unhealthy bacteria and fungus in the gut and if we’ve talked about the gut as being a major source of inflammation partially because of the immune system acting in the gut.

If you have an unhealthy bacteria or fungus in your intestines, then that is going to cause inflammation, of course, and your immune system is going to be part of what makes that inflammation. Now, if probiotics can help reduce these unhealthy bacteria or fungus, we can reduce inflammation because we’re getting rid of this naked dis of unhealthy bacteria or fungus. That’S causing inflammation, that’s causing your immune system to chronic.

They react so, for all these reasons, through healing the gut through balancing the immune system and through getting rid of unhealthy or unwanted bacteria and fungus, are a few of the major reasons why it’s likely. This study that reviewed all of the data on probiotics and inflammation has shown that yes, probiotics do in fact help to decrease inflammation. So what does this mean? What did you do? Well, it comes back to something I say quite often, which is start with the gut.

If you’re not feeling well one of the best bang for your buck, if you will, in terms of health interventions that can help, reduce or eliminate the most amount of symptoms, the most quickly is by starting with having a thorough investigation of and optimizing the health of. Your gut, so if you start with the gut, you can help decrease inflammation, get rid of these unwanted bacteria balance your immune system, and what have you now there’s many ways that you can start with the gut, but for someone who is listening to this, if you’re, Not sure where to start starting with a gut is an excellent bet, so again, very high level.

Scientific data, systematic review with meta-analysis of 20 clinical trials, has shown that probiotics do you in fact help to decrease inflammation? So this is dr. Russo and I hope this helps you get healthy and get back to your life thanks.
