The One Thing Missing From Your Gut Health Routine
Let's say you pop a probiotic every morning, drink kombucha instead of soda, and fill up on sauerkraut. That means your gut should be all good, right?
According to Mahmoud A. Ghannoum, PhD, EMBA, probiotic supplements actually may not be enough for some people—especially those who continue to experience uncomfortable symptoms like gas and bloating regularly. The thing that could be holding them back from balanced digestion? They're not getting a daily dose of good fungi. (Sexy, right?)
"Often, people can get an overgrowth of bad fungi in the gut, similarly to how bad bacteria can take over," he says. "In order to maintain a balance, you need to make sure you're getting good fungi and good bacteria in the gut. Taking a probiotic is only fixing part of the problem."
Ghannoum should know—he's been studying the gut for 24 years and during that time has published over 400 peer-reviewed articles, has been cited more than 16,000 times by other scientists, and has raised million-plus in research funding.
