Even the best supplements can't offset an unhealthy lifestyle-probiotics, intermittent fasting, prebiotics, gut health

Even the best supplements alone will NOT offset a bad lifestyle: too much sugar, too little sleep, too⁠ much takeout, too much stress, turning to meds for solving everything, etc.⁠
But life is all about balance too. Infections happen (and require antibiotics). Stress is on the rise (in most⁠ people). Holidays, vacations, and celebrations are going to take place (typically involving unhealthy food and drinks). ⁠
The goal isn’t to avoid life or not live. The goal is to have the good in abundance and the bad occasionally, so the gut and body are healthy.⁠

1️⃣ The right supplements matter. People say “I get everything I need from fruits, vegetables, apple cider⁠ vinegar, and fermented foods. I don’t need supplements.” Healthy eaters with very balanced diets still get sick and have stomach issues all the time. That’s a fact. People need assistance to maintain gut health.⁠
2️⃣ Fruits and vegetables feed good bacteria. If we all ate a lot more fruits and vegetables, we would all be much better off. Changing cravings to fruits and vegetables is one of our goals at Silver Fern™ Brand.⁠
3️⃣ Intermittent fasting isn’t about weight loss; it is about changing the bacteria composition in the gut to⁠ favor good bacteria. Good bacteria thrive during the daily fasted state. Intermittent fasting is for gut health.⁠
Men need 14-16 hours a day (5-6 days a week). Women need 12-14 hours a day (5-6 days a week).⁠
4️⃣ Exercise and sleep help with gut health.⁠
5️⃣ Reducing more and more of the unhealthy things entering the body will allow good bacteria to thrive⁠ and bad bacteria to die. The Western Diet (heavy proteins and bad fats, soda, candy, fast food, etc.) is really hard on gut health.⁠
We don’t ask people to do extreme diets because it isn’t sustainable and excluding the celebration of foods⁠ and drinks doesn’t work for most people. Finding balance is the secret.⁠
