Yesterday I made mention of the fact that healthy gut bacteria can help ward off Alzheimer’s disease.
Now it seems that it’s linked to heart health as well.
According to new research, people who suffer heart failure are lacking in some important kinds of intestinal bacteria. What’s more, gut bacteria is less diverse in people with heart failure than it is in healthy individuals.
It’s not clear from the study whether the gut bacteria changes cause heart failure or if they’re a result of it. But considering all we know about the many benefits of healthy intestinal bacteria, it’s always a good idea to take the necessary steps to improve yours.
How? By eating a healthy diet and taking a high-quality, multi-strain probiotic every single day. Look for a probiotic that has many different strains, as well as prebiotics.
Your gut, heart, and brain will thank you.
