Another Reason to Keep Your Gut Happy

Many people know that if the bacterial colonies in the gut are out of balance, it can lead to sickness. It has now been found that certain non-beneficial, pathogenic bacteria like Campylobacter, Shigella, Salmonella, Yersinia enterocolitica, and Candida may contribute to inflammation and faulty blood flow in patients with Congestive Heart Failure.

A large percentage of people looking to improve their health know the importance of beneficial (friendly) bacteria for good digestive and immune function. These probiotics, as they are called, work counteract the action of the non-friendly bugs in the digestive system.

Eating fermented foods such as kefir, sauerkraut, and kim chi may help keep your digestive bacteria in balance. Taking a good probiotic supplement can also ensure that the friendly gut bugs outnumber the bad guys, especially in people who don’t eat fermented foods.
