Gut health matters. More and more doctors, scientists, and researchers are agreeing that the condition of your gut can affect your brain, mood, and the rest of your body – for better or for worse (1).
Evidence suggests that probiotics play a crucial role in our overall health. Some of these billions of microorganisms can be found in food, and that’s a great place to start. But sadly, it’s not enough anymore.
Food isn’t as nutritious as it used to be. Our soil has been exhausted of important vitamins, minerals, and yes… even healthy bacterial organisms. Soil that is lacking means food that is lacking, which means people that are lacking (2).
Now that wellness companies are catching on, markets are being flooded with an array of probiotic powders, capsules, and liquid formulations.
There are literally hundreds of different probiotics strains out there, but not all probiotic supplements are created equal.
So, how do you know which probiotic supplement is best for you?
KaraMD GutBio Max is a powerful food-based combination that naturally and safely balances your digestive system. This trailblazing trifecta of prebiotics, probiotics, and postbiotics raises a whole new bar on what gut health looks like.
Let’s begin with the first star in this show: prebiotics.
In addition to having a host of beneficial gut bacteria, GutBio Align comes with a distinct digestive blend that helps to prep and prime your body to utilize the probiotics in the most efficient way.
Blue Agave Inulin Powder
The blue agave is a cactus plant that can be found in hot climates such as Mexico. The inulin fibers found in the plant are taken and turned into powder.
Inulin is a fiber found in different plants. It’s classified as a prebiotic because of the way your body uses it. The bacteria in your gut breaks inulin down and turns it into fatty acids – and these fatty acids give nourishment to the cells in your colon, as well as other places (3).
Organic Banana Powder
Why bananas? Once you learn about this tropical fruit, you’ll be asking yourself why this isn’t in MORE digestive supplements.
Bananas are highly nutritious. They can replenish electrolytes and have vitamins like B and C. They’re a great choice for digestion because the carbohydrates break down easily. Bananas that aren’t quite ripe yet have what’s called “resistant starch”. This fibrous material acts as a food source for good bacteria to grow because it takes longer for your body to digest (4).
Organic Flaxseed Meal
Flax is one of those foods that are tiny, but mighty. Not only are they bursting with omega-3 fatty acids, they’re also filled with anti-inflammatory lignans, protein, and fiber.
It is often harvested and used for its oil, but the seeds can be ground into a powder. Similar to the previous two foods, flaxseed contains the type of fiber your good gut bacteria feed on (5).
Probiotics are living microorganisms that are found in a select group of foods. Sauerkraut, kimchi, yogurt, and some cheeses are common probiotic foods.
KaraMD GutBio Max is a collection of specific strains of these probiotics – the strains that can be most helpful to a healthy gut.
This is one of the things that causes KaraMD GutBio Max to stand out from among the crowd. Very few probiotic supplements will include the “what happens next?” aspect, but we got you covered.
Postbiotics are basically what happens one you digest the prebiotics and the probiotics. What’s left isn’t useless waste, but often beneficial nutrients like vitamin K, vitamin B, amino acids and antimicrobial peptides that makes it harder for the bad bacteria to duplicate (6).
The Bottom Line
It’s great that more people are waking up to the fact that gut health matters. And thanks to ongoing research, there are many probiotic supplements out there.
Unfortunately, not every product will give your body the complete digestive health overall it deserves. It can be tough trying to figure out which bacteria strains do what, but with KaraMD GutBio Max, we take the guesswork out for you.
All you have to do is include 4 convenient capsules into your diet, and watch how much better you start to feel. For more information on how to get started, check out our product page here (7).
