“All disease begins in the gut.” Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, was wise beyond his years when he coined this phrase more than 2,000 years ago. Our bodies are ill-equipped with our current lifestyle and the conditions we are facing in our environment.
A severe imbalance to our microbiome can lead to many illnesses including, but not limited to: autoimmune disorders, food allergies, chronic infections, eczema, irritable bowel syndrome, genital infections, autism, adrenal fatigue and many more.
I have personally included probiotics in my supplement protocol for many years. Recently I learned after repeatedly taking the same product and the same strain that it is important to change up the product and strains you’re taking more often, to get a good sampling of different bacteria strains in your microbiome.
Recently I spotted LoveBug Probiotics at Grove Collaborative, an online natural product retailer for home cleaning products, similar to Thrive Market but instead of specializing in quality snacks & paleo packaged foods they source quality cleaning products instead. Unfortunately LoveBug Probiotics are not dairy-free so I wasn’t able to consume them regularly but I believe in the quality they bring to their products.
On that note, it’s important to learn about different quality products and not just pick up any probiotic off the shelf that you may not be familiar with. And that’s why I’ve asked LoveBug Probiotics to guest post today and provide more information to y’all about probiotics and their own products at LoveBug.
The Power of Gut Health
Studies show that more than 70 million Americans suffer from digestive “gut” problems. A healthy gut is the basis of good health. In fact about 70% of our immune system lives in our gut. Many are suffering from an extreme imbalance in the microbiome where “bad” bugs outweigh the “good” bugs that maintain a healthy digestive tract. Our bodies rely on a good balance of good and bad “bugs” (bacteria) to ensure that we are getting the proper enzymes and healthy microbes to help support and strengthen our immune system. There are a growing number of consumers taking control of their own health. Many are in fact, turning to probiotics.
“Our microbiome is a delicate ecosystem that needs a combination of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ bugs to function normally,” explains Ashley Harris, CEO and Founder of LoveBug. “Probiotics are ‘good’ bacteria that live naturally in your gut. These microorganisms, when properly balanced, act to support your immune system, aid in digestion, support your skin, hair and keep everything in your body running smoothly. We created LoveBug to help people improve their gut health and overall well-being.”
LoveBug probiotics is a complete line of premium probiotics for the whole family to help achieve and maintain optimal gut health. Products range from adult health, pre-natal and post-natal, children and babies health. It features BIO-tract®, a patented delivery technology scientifically developed to be 15 times more effective in getting microorganisms past the stomach acid barrier and to their final destination in your digestive tract, where they do their health-boosting work. It also boasts formulas that are Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, Lactose-Free and Sugar-Free.
The products in the line-up all help to repopulate the gut with good bacteria for health-boosting benefits plus more. Here’s a list of the different products LoveBug offers and an explanation of each:
