Restore gut health with probiotics!
Probiotics can prevent intestinal issues by populating the gut with live, “good” bacteria.
Our founder, Dr. Elroy Vojdani, MD, IFMCP, is a gut health and brain health (and the connection between the two) expert. That’s why the Regenera Medical team recognizes the importance of gut health in relation to overall health.
Learn more about the health benefits of probiotics in this article from our friends at Independent.
Several factors can contribute to IBS. We have learned that genetics, stress, toxin exposure, the state of our Gut Microbiome, the breakdown of physical digestive mechanisms of our gut and leaky gut can all be major contributors to this disease.
We fully agree with David Perlmutter, as we witness this truth in our medical practice weekly.
Despite how common, chronic bloating, gas, diarrhea, constipation, reflux and heartburn are not normal. While there are all kinds of over the counter medications designed to mask these symptoms, these are signs that something is not working properly in your gut – and gluten is often one of the culprits.
Gluten can trigger intestinal cell damage and an immune reaction, which can throw the balance off in your gastrointestinal system. This can lead to an inflammatory attack against the protective lining of our gut (known as leaky gut) which eventually extends to an attack against the protective lining of our brain (leaky brain).
If you are experiencing these symptoms, it’s important to learn why this is happening in the first place, so we can then know what we do about it.
Regenera Medical is committed to, and actively engaged in, pioneering efforts with scientists and medical leaders in functional medicine community to understand the role that gut health plays in overall health and how sensitivities to gluten and other substances.
Through these and other efforts, we have scientific evidence that a healthy gut (which in many cases require a gluten free gut) is the foundation for long-lasting total body health.
The communication between the brain and the gut is ongoing from birth and plays a significant role in shaping how the brain is wired.
Recent research has shown links between disorders of the gut and brain linked to disorders such as anxiety, insomnia, depression, MS and autism. This connection is so powerful that the gut has now been dubbed the “second brain”.
A study published the Journal of Physiology found that your gut health influences your mental health!
For instance, stress levels decrease when short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) are present in the gut.
To introduce SCFAs to your gut, we recommend eating a high-fiber diet.
Ease symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) with pomegranates!
Research show that this fruit contains powerful anti-inflammatory properties, making it beneficial for gut health and digestion.
In one Israeli study, patients were given a daily dose of pomegranate extract for one year. The results showed that this single lifestyle choice reversed plaque related clogging of the arteries, and reduced their blood pressure by 21% – without making any other lifestyle changes!
If you experience constipation, a specific strain of probiotics can help!
A study in the journal Gut Microbes reported that Bifidobacterium lactis HN019 – found in cereals & supplements – increases bowel movements by 53% & decreases discomfort by 28%.
