Optimizes gut health, aids with digestion, and fights bloating
Many of us think that bacteria are bad, but the truth is, only a few of them cause diseases. The majority of the types of bacteria in your body are harmless, while the others are good bacteria that keep your gut healthy, optimize digestion, support a healthy microbiome, and fight bloating.
And because many things can harm your good bacteria—like not eating a wide range of foods, drinking too much alcohol, smoking, and not eating enough prebiotics— you need to supply your body with live bacteria called probiotics to optimize the health of your digestive system. One way to do that is by consuming greens powder.
Some greens powders contain the probiotic lactobacillus acidophilus. This species of live bacteria turns the sugar in our food into lactic acid, a compound that makes our gut inhabitable to bad, disease-causing bacteria.
