Do you beauties remember the probiotic craze that hit a couple of years back? Pre & Probiotics believe it or not have a profound effect on our gut health and help to replace the good bacteria that is damaged with everyday living.
The foods that we consume play a major role in damaging the good gut flora that we have, inviting inflammation, disease, parasites, and fungi to grow and multiply in our stomachs, intestines, and colon.
Before embarking on your sx journey it is important to pay attention to your gut health because surgery alone is going to disrupt it. Now add in the pre-existing conditions which make for an uncomfortable recovery.
- If your diet pre-op lacks fiber, you will more than likely be constipated going in. Add in anesthesia and your bowels are going to be out of wack as well. On the other hand, some beauties come out with loose bowels, If that happens use of a probiotic can regulate your bowels. The last thing you want is to be shitty (excuse my french) and in pain.
- Eating regularly will help good probiotics have to eat up the food to do what it does. Fiber-rich diets boost the effects of a probiotic, balancing gut health and bowel movements for a smooth exit if you get my drift...lol!
- So you know I had to save the best for last. Probiotics have been proven to lower the LDL (bad cholesterol & blood pressure) rate in patients. Probiotics promote the production of natural antibodies, boosting immune cells like the IgA-producing cells, T lymphocytes, and natural killer cells; which in turn lowers your rate of infection in the body while fighting against it.
Trust me, especially if you are over the age of 35 and having SX, you should be consuming a daily probiotic. The body as it ages does not digest foods the way it did when say in your 20's. Remember probiotics can be consumed either through food or supplements.
Want to facilitate faster healing, trust us, and throw this in the bag. Drop in the comments if you are currently taking a probiotic anyhow many CFU's are you consuming!
