@My Gut Garden is excited to launch 3 new strains of yogurt, please see below for further information:
Yogurt is a fermented dairy product made from milk and live bacteria cultures, and has been recognized for its potential gut healing benefits. The different strains of bacteria can offer diverse benefits to gut health.
Baccillus Coagulans (available from @My Gut Garden) PURCHASE HERE
The Tummy Soother – 1/4 cup of yogurt = 350 billion counts of microbes
- Reduces inflammation & arthritis pain
- Reduces symptoms of IBS
Improved Digestive Health: Bacillus coagulans has been found to promote a healthy gut by supporting the balance of gut bacteria, which can aid in digestion and nutrient absorption. It can help alleviate symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) such as bloating, gas, and diarrhoea.
Enhanced Immune Function: Bacillus coagulans has been shown to support the immune system by enhancing the body’s natural defences against harmful pathogens. It can help boost the production of antibodies and stimulate the activity of immune cells, which may help reduce the risk of infections.
Reduced Inflammation: Bacillus coagulans has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help reduce inflammation in the gut and throughout the body. Chronic inflammation has been linked to various health conditions, including inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), arthritis, and cardiovascular disease, so reducing inflammation can have overall health benefits.
Improved Vaginal Health: Bacillus coagulans has been shown to help maintain a healthy balance of vaginal bacteria, which can be beneficial for women’s reproductive health. It can help prevent the overgrowth of harmful bacteria, such as Candida, and may help reduce the risk of vaginal infections, such as bacterial vaginosis and yeast infections.
Enhanced Nutrient Synthesis: Bacillus coagulans has been shown to produce certain vitamins, such as vitamin K and vitamin B6, which are important for overall health. These vitamins play a role in blood clotting, bone health, and energy metabolism.
Traveller’s Diarrhea Prevention: Bacillus coagulans has been shown to be effective in preventing and treating traveller’s diarrhoea, which is a common problem among travellers’. It can help inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria in the gut and support a healthy gut microbiota, reducing the risk of diarrhoea during travel.
Improved Mental Health: Emerging research suggests that there may be a connection between the gut and the brain, known as the gut-brain axis. Bacillus coagulans has been shown to have potential benefits for mental health by positively influencing the gut microbiota, which may impact brain function and mood regulation.
L Gasseri (available from @My Gut Garden) PURCHASE HERE
The Bliss Bug – 1/4 cup of yogurt = 350 billion counts of microbes
– Increases serotonin levels
– Assists with weight loss
– Lowers joint sensitivity
– Helps with menopausal symptoms
Improved Digestive Health: Lactobacillus gasseri is believed to help improve digestive health by promoting the balance of beneficial bacteria in the gut, which can support healthy digestion and reduce symptoms such as bloating, gas, and constipation.
Immune System Support: Lactobacillus gasseri has been shown to have immunomodulatory effects, meaning it can help regulate the immune system. This may result in enhanced immune function, potentially reducing the risk of infections and other immune-related conditions.
Weight Management: Some studies suggest that Lactobacillus gasseri may have a role in weight management. It has been found that this probiotic strain may help reduce body weight, waist circumference, and body fat, especially in individuals with overweight or obesity. However, more research is needed in this area to better understand the mechanisms involved.
Heart Health: There is evidence that Lactobacillus gasseri may help improve heart health by reducing certain risk factors such as cholesterol levels and blood pressure. By modulating the gut microbiota and producing beneficial compounds, Lactobacillus gasseri may have a positive impact on cardiovascular health.
Vaginal Health: Lactobacillus gasseri is one of the predominant species of bacteria naturally present in the vaginal microbiota. It helps maintain the acidic pH of the vaginal environment, which is important for preventing the overgrowth of harmful bacteria and maintaining optimal vaginal health.
Mental Health: Emerging research suggests that the gut microbiota, including Lactobacillus gasseri, may play a role in mental health. Some studies have shown that Lactobacillus gasseri may have potential benefits in improving mood, reducing symptoms of anxiety and depression, and supporting overall mental well-being.
L Reuteri (available @My Gut Garden) PURCHASE HERE
‘The Love Bug’ – 1/4 cup of yogurt = 350 billion counts of microbes
– Aids sleep
– Reduces H Pylori
– Hair growth
– Protects from UTI’s
– Restores muscle tone
– Reverses bone loss – An increase in the production of oxytocin ‘The feel good’ hormone.
Gut health: L. reuteri has been shown to have a positive effect on gut health by promoting the growth of beneficial gut bacteria, reducing the growth of harmful bacteria, and maintaining a healthy gut microbiome. It may also help improve gut motility, alleviate symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and reduce the risk of gastrointestinal infections.
Immune system support: L. reuteri has been found to modulate the immune system, helping to stimulate the production of immune cells, regulate inflammatory responses, and enhance the body’s defence against pathogens. It may also help improve the body’s response to vaccination and reduce the risk of respiratory infections.
Bone health: Some studies suggest that L. reuteri may have a positive impact on bone health by improving calcium absorption, increasing bone density, and reducing the risk of osteoporosis. It may also help reduce inflammation and oxidative stress, which can be detrimental to bone health.
Mental health: Emerging research suggests that L. reuteri may have a role in promoting mental health. It has been found to modulate the gut-brain axis, which is the communication pathway between the gut and the brain, and may help improve mood, reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression, and enhance cognitive function. L. reuteri stimulates the production of oxytocin, known as the love hormone.
It’s important to note that the specific benefits of different bacterial cultures in yogurt can vary depending on the individual and the specific strain of bacteria. The efficacy of different strains may also vary depending on the health condition being addressed. When choosing yogurt for gut health benefits, it’s best to look for yogurts with a variety of live bacteria cultures and consult with a healthcare professional for personalized advice.
