CAN PROBIOTICS IMPROVE EYE HEALTH?
As we are well aware, 70% of the immune system lives within our digestive tract, so by balancing the digestive system, you are actually strengthening your overall health and wellbeing – but there’s more! A healthy gut has the ability to protect the body from diseases and illness as many of these originate in the gut and now, doctors are finding that there is a link between poor gut health, vision problems and/or brain health too!
To start off with, there is the thought process that a leakage in an individual’s retina is closely linked to a leakage in the gut of said individual! Your gut is completely linked to your brain and your eyes due to the amount of bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract. We have mentioned before but to reiterate, there are 10 times more bacteria in our human bodies than there are human cells, which means that over 99% of the DNA in our bodies is the DNA of our own bacteria!
Said bacteria is linked to (whether directly or indirectly) regulating all the processes within our bodies – such as the brain connection to the gut where if we have inflammatory conditions in the gut, this links to the brain with depression, anxiety and many other mental health disorders! Your imbalanced gut can reach the brain in the form of your sleeping patterns too which affects how well you sleep, lethargy, insomnia or over-sleeping too.
The main reason for a leaky gut is bad bacteria, which is why it is vital to have a healthy gut microbiome, this can be done by taking a good probiotic such as Rawbiotics. The microbiome within our gut can be destroyed by many prescription medicines such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, oral contraceptives and the medication we take for gastroesophageal reflux.
