Did you know that your gastrointestinal systems contains over 100 trillion live bacteria – and that these are a mix of good probiotics and bad bacteria?
Ideally, you will have a ratio of around 85% good bacteria to 15% bad bacteria. But in the case of inadequate amounts of probiotics, you can have an imbalance that can cause toxic bugs in your gut – and numerous health problems and diseases, along with bad digestive issues.
Additionally, there is a weight and fat gain factor related to more bad bacteria than good bacteria. A large percentage of studies on people that were obese, show that they had inadequate levels of probiotics that were likely a cause for the extra fat gain.
Correcting Your Gut Bacteria Ratio
Clearly, too many bad bacteria is a serious problem – and it is also one that can come from eating supposedly healthy foods, along with foods that you may be eating every day.
But there are a number of strategies that can effectively correct the gut bacteria imbalance, as well as a number of foods that will increase your probiotic levels.
