Listen to your gut: it needs help. Years and decades of processed foods, exposure to plastics and pollution and toxins that are just a part of normal life, and the often-villified (but sometimes life-saving) antibiotics courses have all taken their toll on our ability to digest and obtain nutrients from our food. What your gut wants (even if it doesn't know it yet) is Prescript-Assist Broad Spectrum Probiotic. That's a big mouthful of a name, but it will make your belly sigh in relief. Your gut's voice is important, and you can help.
There could be something not quite right with your gut, and probably my gut, and most adult guts here in the western world.
When your gut is not working correctly, it can manifest in a whole bunch of ways that seem to be coming from your digestion: bloating, gasiness, indigestion, irregular bowels. But there are other signs that are sneakier that are just as tied to your gut as the others: malaise, feeling out of sorts, fatigue, low nutrient absorption (say you eat lots of oysters but your zinc levels are crap - you're not getting that zinc!), even skin disorders. Eek.
So what's to do? Take any old probiotic, or some yogurt, or guzzle some (admittedly yummy) kombucha? Sure, those are options, but they are not quite what your gut really needs. In a way, pouring kombucha on a bad gut is like eating a can of sardines a month on top of pasta and pop-tarts. What you might need is something much more substantial, an overhaul of sorts: something like Prescript-Assist Broad Spectrum Probiotic.
Basically what this probiotic does is assist in balancing your gut flora in a way no supplement has before: with a combination of strains that do not need refrigeration and a potent dosing to make sure they are doing their job.
Here's the deal: Prescript-Assist is a massively curated mixture of temperature-stable gut critters, supported by prebiotics and science. Here is a video that explains how prebiotics work.
