The bacteria colonizing the GI tract (microbiome) form an intricate and mutually beneficial relationship with our body. These bacteria offer many benefits to us, including strengthening gut integrity, harvesting energy, protecting against pathogens, and regulating immunity. However, there is potential for these mechanisms to be disrupted as a result of an altered microbial composition, known as dysbiosis. Studies suggest that dysbiosis has a role in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), obesity, diabetes, and even depression & anxiety.
A healthy gut microbiome is crucial for good health. Even those who do not have apparent GI issues or symptoms can benefit from an enhanced natural flora. This combination includes three components that work together to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria and reduce the effects and number of harmful bacteria. The probiotic component are the strains of bacteria you want to encourage growth of; the prebiotic is the food for the good bacteria to utilize; and the postbiotic provides nourishment of the colonic mucosa and encourages the positive relationship between the microbiome and host. This synergistic combination, handpicked by 20Lighter co-founder Dr. Dembrowski, provides you with the best products available to establish and nurture a healthy gut microbiome.
