Not a day goes by without a new study being published about the role that our gut plays in our health and wellness. But while we’re starting to appreciate that there’s a whole ecosystem of bacteria and fungi that exists in our guts, there’s one aspect of our digestive health that you’re probably not as familiar with: It’s called digestive plaque.
The common perception is that the germs in our gut are free-floating organisms, just drifting around like stars stuck in some inner-space within us. But that’s actually not correct. What we’ve discovered is that bad bacteria and fungi actually work together to create a thick film along our gut’s lining called digestive plaque. Not only that, but digestive plaque actually acts as a protective shield covering bad bacteria and fungi. Fully protected from probiotic germs, and even medications, the protected bad bacteria and fungi can wreak havoc on our digestive systems.
