If you’re like me and are part of the 40% of Americans who experience digestive discomfort in the form of bloating, indigestion, acid reflux, or flatulence, you know how much a bad gut can get in the way of your goals.
What most people don’t know, however, is that medical treatments for digestive disorders have been failing…miserably. For years, I tried countless diets and supplements, sought out endless advice, and got NOWHERE.
What I’ve learned is that today’s gut supplements focus on using probiotics to reduce the symptoms of digestive discomfort. But, probiotics on their own don’t address the root causes of digestive disorders. As a result, medical professionals are still witnessing a massive increase in gut issues across the country.
The truth is that gut disorders are intrinsically related to our brain health. That’s why research shows that poor gut health is often accompanied by stress, anxiety, and insomnia, or chronic illnesses like diabetes, depression, and arthritis. To put it simply, in order to fix your gut you have to fix the whole system.
Just look at how much your gut health actually impacts:
- Emotional behavior
- Pain-modulation systems
- Chronic inflammation
- Sleep regulation
- Brain neurotransmitter systems
Once I realized how interconnected these systems were, I searched everywhere to find a supplement that focused on something more than just a probiotic. In my research I learned about the immense importance of prebiotics and postbiotics. Prebiotics are essential for all of the good bacteria that live in our bodies- it is in fact their main source of food! Apparently when these good bacteria are fed and happy they make something called short chain fatty acids AKA postbiotics. These postbiotics are absolutely crucial for digestive cell health, brain health, among many other things. In other words we need good prebiotics and production of probiotics to have optimal gut health! That’s when I found , one of the first gut health supplements that combines pre, and post biotic to target all aspects of the gut-brain health.
Klora understands that probiotics are just one piece of the puzzle. They put together a unique “cap in cap” pill to help ensure delivery of their ingredients in the right parts of the digestive system. This innovative pill includes two crucial ingredients: 2’Fucosyllactose (2’FL) and Butyrate. The inner cap contains 2’Fl which is a prebiotic that is bioidentical to a molecule found in breast milk. 2’FL gives humans immunity and a healthy initial microbiome when they are first born. It is categorized as a human milk oligosaccharide (HMO) and research shows it can be immensely beneficial to gut health. The outer cap contains the second ingredient called Butyrate. Butyrate is the most abundant postbiotic produced by the microbiome and is in fact the main fuel source for digestive cells! Without enough butyrate production, there is bound to be health issues like leaky gut. Klora included a liquid form of this postbiotic that gets down to the colon where the microbiome lives. It is the first time anyone has put together these two unique ingredients in a daily formula.
With Klora, I also knew I was getting the highest quality natural ingredients, because they’re all tested by a third party and certified for authenticity.
Research has shown that some of the root causes of digestive issues may possibly stem from a lack of prebiotics in the diet and a lack of postbiotic production from the microbiome. By finding a supplement that had ingredients focused on the root causes, I was able to finally get back the life I wanted. I no longer have to worry about my chronic brain fog or poor digestive health that was draining me on a daily basis. I now have the energy to take on life’s challenges.
So if you’re someone who’s going through what I did, struggling with bloating, lack of energy, poor bowel movements, among many other issues- do yourself a favor and give a shot. Then, you’ll see the difference on how incorporating prebiotics and postbiotics, into your regime truly makes.
