The microbiome and probiotics are all the rage. These healthy bacteria support gut health, immunity, brain function, and more.
❌ But probiotics are not for everyone!
The most common explanation for this is that there is already an overgrowth of bacteria— called SIBO.
SIBO stands for Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth. Excessive numbers of bacteria convert carbohydrates into gas, causing bloating and digestive problems.
Adding more bacteria to the mix? It can be like adding fuel to a fire 🔥
But all probiotics are not created equal. Some specific strains of bacteria can be very helpful in SIBO. This is why individualized testing and treatment are so helpful in resolving chronic gut symptoms.
