An imbalance of the gut flora has been linked to various diseases, from gut & mood disorders to autoimmune problems. Still, there are a lot of ongoing studies on these. Learn how balancing gut flora can put you in better control of your body. 1
Why is gut flora important?
The success or failure of your bowel movements is largely dependent on your gut flora colony. More than this, they are essential to nutrient absorption, pathogenic immunity and healthy brain behavior. 3
What is intestinal flora?
Intestinal flora, or gut flora, are the same as microbiota and include all bacteria, archaea and fungi microorganisms that live within the digestive tract. 1
How are they related to good health?
Gut disorder occurs when various daily triggers affect the numbers of gut flora, or intestinal flora, present in the intestines. A balance in gut flora means less susceptibility to gut-related illness, both short and long-term. 1
Different gut disorders stemming from imbalanced microbiota
We all experience gut disorders from time to time. Learn how to identify the different symptoms — are any familiar to you?
Bowel Disorders in Adults
An unbalanced gut has the tendency to leak, and the result is watery bowel movement. Triggers commonly include viral and bacterial infection, some foods and medications. 4
Antibiotics affect the gut by causing sensitivity, making it more vulnerable. Side effects include abdominal pain and diarrhea/ constipation. 5
A most common gut disorder, abdominal pain can be triggered by an imbalance in the intestinal flora. Indigestion and food sensitivity are to be expected. 6
A condition of various triggers, whereby the gut becomes slow or sluggish. This condition involves constipation and/or painful bowel movements. 7
Excessive gas in the gut will cause visible bloating and abdominal discomfort, usually alongside constipation. 8
A condition caused by maladaptation within the intestinal microbiota. Gut imbalance may cause anything from foul breath to rectal itching. 9
Estrogen and progesterone affect normal gut function while the body is creating life, causing nausea, constipation, gas retention & discomfort. May lead to imbalance and decrease in everyday health. Consult HCP before using any probiotic/EG. 10
Bowel Disorders in Children
Leaky gut is common in kids when the intestinal flora is unbalanced, making them vulnerable to infectious diseases like diarrhea. 11
Antibiotics can improve overall health, but may eradicate good-bacteria in the process, leading to cramping, nausea, and watery stool. Children are more sensitive to this than adults. 5
Abdominal pain is a common occurrence in little ones; the array of triggers for this condition is immense. Learn how to identify and treat them. 6
How can Bacillus clausii help you solve your gut problems?
Bacillus clausii is a type of spore-forming good bacteria that works to rebalance the intestine. When consumed regularly (or as advised by a HCP), it can help to treat and prevent different conditions associated to gut disorder. 12
