Is Healthy Bacteria in Your Gut the Secret to Losing Weight?

Did you know that a major cause of weight gain and fluid retention in both men and women is an unhealthy digestive system?

So, if you are looking looking to lose weight, you have to start with your gut.

I wonder if you know that your body is the home of trillions of microbes? Even more importantly, did you realize that these healthy bacteria are absolutely essential to your health and well being?

These tiny microbes live in your digestive system and when healthy create an internal eco-system (also known as gut fora) that is an important part of both your immune system and your digestive system.

A healthy gut flora, has a lot of diversity and is capable of fending of any bad bacteria or fungus. It also helps break down food and absorb nutrients.
In fact, these good bacteria produce vitamins essential to your health and they even help eliminate toxins.

The problem is, just like in nature, your internal eco-system with its health giving microbes is sensitive and can be easily destroyed.

So, what damages your internal eco-system?

Antibiotics and certain medications kill off both the good bacteria and the bad.

More contributing factors include too much processed foods and sugar. Plus other things we are all exposed to like environmental toxins, house cleaning and garden chemicals plus personal care products can all pollute your gut.

It’s a well known fact that processed and junk foods create the perfect home for bad bacteria, fungus and yeast to grow and thrive.  And once the good bacteria is destroyed, bad bacteria quickly move in and grows like weeds.

When there are more bad bacteria than good bacteria, a lot of problems can arise – from digestive complaints like bloating, cramping, constipation and gas,  to chronic inflammation (like IBS), type 2 diabetes, arthritis and even bowel cancer.

So what does chronic gut inflammation and bad bacteria have to do with weight gain and weight loss?

Well a number of scientific studies have now shown that an unhealthy clogged digestive system and unbalanced gut flora can contribute to weight gain and cause chronic obesity over time.

It’s a fact that if you have the wrong type of bacteria in your gut, if you are trying to lose weight,  it might not be enough to eat healthy and exercise. This is because if your digestion is not working well and you have chronic inflammation due to your imbalanced gut flora, weight gain and digestive problems are almost inevitable.

So, it’s well worth doing your part to keep your gut healthy with regular colon and body detox cleanses and of course re-populating your gut with healthy microbes.
