Why do some people feel WORSE taking probiotics?
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! In some people, probiotics make gut problems even worse.
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’s like adding fuel to a fire 🔥
Prebiotics can be equally problematic, so look closely at supplement labels for things like inulin, chicory, arabinogalactan, FOS, or GOS.
