Do I Need Supplements?

Dysbiosis. Have you heard of it? Yeah, me neither. At least not until recently. I had also never even given probiotics any thought except one time when I was on an antibiotic my doctor suggested getting some drugstore probiotics. So I wanted to speak to those of you that are like I was- thinking I didn’t need any supplements.

Dysbiosis means an unbalanced gut. It can be caused by any number of things. Some of the things that cause dysbiosis are:

  • poor diet
  • excess sugar
  • antibiotics
  • alcohol
  • stress
  • lack of sleep

Are you familiar with any of those? 🙂 3 out of 5 adults suffer from dysbiosis and it’s not a surprise after reading through that list.

If your gut is out of balance your health is too. And you are feeling it. You may not realize that the symptoms you are experiencing are related to your gut health but that is where it all begins. Our gut is largely responsible for the critical functions of our body from our physical health to our emotional and mental health.

This is where supplements come in. If you are spending a lot of time outside yet not breathing in polluted air, getting plenty of sleep, eating a well-balanced (no sugar!) diet, and living a stress-free life then you may not need supplements. But for all the rest of us we probably need them.

Plexus has a line of plant-based supplements targeted specifically at gut health. My products don’t cure anything but the ingredients are strategically formulated to help address the root causes of most chronic health issues: blood sugar, inflammation and as mentioned gut health. They are used as tools to change your lifestyle and poor eating habits.

If you are tired of not feeling your best and therefore not living your life to the fullest and you want to make a change…please reach out to us. We would love to chat with you about your health goals and help you find which supplements would be best for you!
