What is the Difference Between Probiotics and Prebiotics?

Probiotics are strains of living bacteria or “good bacteria” essential to gut and overall health and that add to the population of good bacteria in your digestive system.

Prebiotics are specialized plant fibers that act as food for the good bacteria and actually stimulate growth among the preexisting good bacteria. It is believed that the prebiotic compounds in foods could actually alter the composition of organisms in the gut microbiome and enhance digestive health.

So in essence, probiotic foods and supplements add to the strength in numbers of soldiers to your army of good bacteria and prebiotics give the soldiers the support they need.

With so many people today suffering from a compromised gut, having the correct types of gut bacteria, and the correct ratio of the bacteria, has taken on greater importance.

The Gut Microbiome
According to Healthline:

“The incredible complexity of the gut and its importance to our overall health is a topic of increasing research in the medical community. Numerous studies in the past two decades have demonstrated links between gut health and the immune system, mood, mental health, autoimmune diseases, endocrine disorders, skin conditions, and cancer.

“At one time, our digestive system was considered a relatively “simple” body system, comprised essentially of one long tube for our food to pass through, be absorbed, and then excreted.

“The term “gut microbiome” refers specifically to the microorganisms living in your intestines. A person has about 300 to 500 different species of bacteria in their digestive tract. While some microorganisms are harmful to our health, many are incredibly beneficial and even necessary to a healthy body.

“According to Dr. E. M. Quigley in his study on gut bacteria in the Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, having a wide variety of these good bacteria in your gut can enhance your immune system function, improve symptoms of depression, help combat obesity, and provide numerous other benefits.

7 Signs of an Unhealthy Gut

“There are a number of ways an unhealthy gut might manifest itself. Here are seven of the most common signs:

Upset stomach
A high-sugar diet
Unintentional weight changes
Sleep disturbances or constant fatigue
Skin irritation
Autoimmune conditions
Food intolerances.”

Supplementation with the needed forms of beneficial bacteria, and the correct ratio of those beneficial bacteria, will go a long way in helping improve gut health, as will consuming prebiotics to enhance the probiotics in the gut. Good gut health can then support a stronger immune system, better mood and mental health, and healthier skin.

“See More of Me” Medications? Are you risking your health?

I understand that problem. It’s embarrassing to have ugly patches of redden skin and you feel you have to cover up which is harder in the summer.. The “see Me” medication also emphasizes the fact that people see the rash and judge the person – or so it seems. It does look like it might be contagious.

The solution is medications that unfortunately has a lot of side effects )I think I’ve seen at least 4 commercials for similar drugs. The information on these drug say that it “may lower the ability of your immune system to fight infections and may increase your risk of infections” This is pretty uniform on any medication that fights an autoimmune problem. Lower the immune response and relieve the symptoms of you health challenge.

In this time of vaccines being important due to the flu pandemic, it doesn’t see wise to risk your health for clearer skin.’

I would think a better solution is something natural that work by addressing the inflammation aspect of the conditon.

For skin inflammation, MCVitamins recommends Inflammation Relief. Learn more about addressing skin problems naturally.



Things You Can Do to Help Neuropathy

The first thing you need to know about neuropathy is it is nerve damage. The second thing you need to know is that B vitamins are needed by the body to build healthy nerves.

Drinking a lot of coffee, tea and soft drinks (including de-caffeinated coffee, tea and soft drinks) cause the loss of both water and water-soluble B vitamins from the body. Heavy smoking, sugar, sugar substitutes (except Stevia), additives in processed foods and soft drinks, drinking of alcohol, use of antibiotics and birth control pills, as well as stress can all burn up B vitamins.

Do not consume anything with MSG in it. MSG can cause nerve damage and can contribute to your condition. Here is an article that lists the various names that MSG is called and that you might find on a label. MSG names

There are many prescription medications that have neuropathy listed as a side effect. Realize that if you are taking one or more of the medications, it can add to the amount of time it will take for you to see results and your neuropathy helped.

Taking the right nutrients will still build healthy nerves, it may just take longer, or you might need to take more of the B vitamins you take on a daily basis.

If you have any question about your medications and the side effects associated with neuropathy you can check at and You can also check the literature that comes with your medication (this is actually what is listed on these websites). The side effects are usually not "neuropathy" but the symptoms of neuropathy such as paresthesia, numbness, tingling, burning, pins and needles or any symptom of unhealthy nerves.
