Is probiotic deficiency common?
Yes! In fact, Probiotic deficiency is more common than you think! Numerous lifestyle factors can influence the balance of beneficial bacteria in your intestinal tract including, but not limited to: stress, poor diet, alcohol, travel, and aging.
To be honest, it's hard for a modern person not to have some kind of probiotic deficiency!
How do I fix a probiotic deficiency?
First and foremost, we recommend a diet rich in high-fiber foods. While taking a probiotic supplement may help, you have to remember that probiotic bacteria eat the same food we do. If you're not eating well, neither are the bacteria in your gut.
By adding more fruits and vegetables to your diet, you can improve the quality of life for your indigenous beneficial bacteria. Most prebiotics are fiber-based as well so increasing your fiber intake will provide additional prebiotic nutrition for your probiotic supplement of choice!
