Gut Connection

Inside of your gut, lives a microbiome. That’s right, trillions of fungi, viruses and good bacteria are alive in your body, contributing to your immune system, heart health, weight, and wellness.

This week, Country Life Vitamins is diving deep into the microbiome, so keep reading to learn more about how to improve gut health, and the best gut health supplements & foods!

How to Improve Gut Health

While it’s said to be first introduced in the birth canal, the gut microbiome continues to mature and adapt as we develop and remains an important part of our overall health for life.

In a healthy microbiome, the “good” bacteria multiply to keep the “bad” bacteria in check, and when a proper balance is achieved, it’s called “equilibrium”.

The Best Gut Health Supplements

Improving your gut microbiome isn’t impossible, though! Introducing probiotics and prebiotics into the system is a great way to re-introduce “good” bacteria into the gut, in an effort to reach that equilibrium.

Here are some of our favorite gut health supplements and best probiotics for gut health:

Gut Connection® Immune Balance™

Gut Connection® Immune Balance™ is a scientifically formulated blend of prebiotics and postbiotics that’s balanced with other immune-supporting ingredients to support a strong & healthy immune system, improve gut microbiome health, and maintain health even in times of stress.**

Gut Connection® Digestive Balance™

Gut Connection® Digestive Balance™ focuses on providing your body with the nutrients you need to maintain good gut and immune health, help reduce occasional bloating or discomfort, and even improve weekly bowel movements.**

Probiotic Daily Powder

Probiotic Daily Powder contains 9 strains of probiotics, as well as a serving of aloe vera. It’s a sophisticated blend of whole, organic ingredients that helps support the microflora balance naturally.**

Prebiotics vs. Probiotics

  • Probiotics - the good bacteria found in your digestive system. These living bacterial strains help, aid in immune system functions and provide essential nutrition to the cells lining your digestive tract.
  • Prebiotics - a group of nutrients that feed the beneficial bacteria in your gut, therefore promoting the growth of good bacteria. Prebiotics are mainly dietary fiber, like what is found in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
  • Postbiotics - the bioactive compounds produced when the probiotic bacteria (intestinal microbes) consume prebiotics (fiber). In other words, they result from probiotic activity in the gut, like fermentation.
