Beneficial Bacteria

Good For Much More Than Your Gut!

Hippocrates said all disease begins in the gut. We now know he was mostly right. Whatever your health condition – asthma, psoriasis, thyroid disease, irritable bowel, etc. – improving your gut health often can improve your symptoms. That’s why probiotics are so important.

These beneficial bacteria play a key role in keeping your digestive system happy. When it’s unhappy, when it’s inflamed, things get ugly. Inflammation in the gut can travel throughout the body, inflaming joints, skin, arteries and even your brain. That’s why an unhappy gut can have such far-ranging effects.

Studies show probiotics can improve allergies, mental health problems, obesity, diarrhea (caused by antibiotics or infection), inflammation , eczema, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, immunity, inflammatory arthritis, upper respiratory infections and even weight loss.

You can get probiotics into your system by taking supplements or eating fermented food. At Ruth’s we sell Perfect Pickler kits so you can make your own health-promoting sauerkraut, pickles, etc., as well as multiple lines of probiotic supplements. We offer a wide variety to give customers plenty of choices. Because studies show diversity in the microbiome is good, we recommend people rotate their probiotics, periodically changing up brands in order to ingest different combinations of probiotic species.
