The Gut as the Second Brain

The gut is such an important and large part of our body that it is often called the "second brain." If our gut flora is disrupted, not only do we lose perfect digestion, but we also begin to slowly poison our bodies. Or, despite a good diet, we let our bodies starve. Probiotic bacteria offer numerous benefits, from stopping diarrhea and improving irritable bowel syndrome, to activating the immune system, enhancing concentration, and addressing various issues related to the brain and heart! For the brain and heart to function healthily, they need clean, oxygen-filled blood, akin to a clear mountain stream, not urban sewage! Do you now recognize the gut's importance even above the navel?

What are these destructive impacts in our lives?

  • Daily stress

  • Insufficient water intake

  • Too much sugar in food

  • Too many simple carbohydrates

  • Excessive preservatives and pesticide residues in foods

  • Therapies involving antibiotics and corticosteroids, all continuously destroying our gut flora.

The Gut as the Second Brain

Modern people have only 10-20% of beneficial microbes in their gut flora instead of 85%. Instead, harmful microbes dominate, causing a host of headaches for us.

We've long known that the brain and the gut are connected, but we attributed significant roles to the brain in signaling symptoms and developing diseases. Today we know that about 20% of the information comes from the brain to the gut and the entire body, while the remaining 80% goes from the gut to the brain.

The carriers of this information are bacteria, whose microbiota are found throughout the body (in places where the balance between bad and good bacteria must be maintained, such as the lungs, oral cavity, and eyes). Communication occurs between the gut and the brain, mediated by the vagus nerve.

The longest nerve, which leads directly from the brain to the gut and parts of the digestive system, thus becomes the "pathway" for depression and poor mood. Traffic here is two-way. This means the brain sends impulses to the gut (we feel them as butterflies or painful stomach cramps), and the gut sends impulses to the brain (depression, anxiety, fatigue).

We never feel pain in the brain, but rather in the body and our well-being. If something is wrong in the gut, this information reaches the brain, which sometimes responds with physical pain, prolonged inflammation, chronic fatigue, or eventually anxiety or depression.


Can you imagine the impact of poisoning on our heart and brain? Or the damage caused if they do not receive the necessary substances? We can eat the most nutritious foods, but if our microbiome is unbalanced, most of the food will end up directly in the toilet.

We all want to be healthy. Health means both a healthy mind and a healthy body. And we want our hearts to beat strongly!

When the gut flora is damaged, the tight junctions between the epithelial cells in the gut can loosen, a phenomenon known as leaky gut syndrome. This allows everything that doesn't belong to penetrate the body.

When toxins, harmful microbes, and undigested food particles circulate in the blood, they trigger numerous negative processes in the body:

What are these symptoms?

  • Allergies: skin rashes in adulthood, sudden intolerance to certain foods.

  • Chronic inflammation: such as rheumatism, atherosclerosis, and myocarditis.

  • Neurological diseases: irritability, hyperactivity, Alzheimer's disease, or dementia.

Probiotics are living, non-pathogenic microorganisms that have beneficial effects on human health. Probiotics contain healthy bacteria for us as they regulate the gut microflora. The body contains many bacteria, called "good bacteria," whose task is to create a proper gut microflora, prevent the multiplication of pathogenic (disease-causing) bacteria, and prevent gastrointestinal infections.

Even if we have to take antibiotics and many other medications, high-quality, truly absorbable probiotics help maintain the stable state of the gut flora. Additionally, probiotics keep the gut in good condition when stressed and when affected by various infections and diseases.

  • Prevent diarrhea caused by ROTAVIRUS or SALMONELLA.

  • Prevent diarrhea triggered by environmental changes, even a bath or hospital visit.

  • Prevent antibiotic-induced diarrhea.

  • Prevent the growth of Candida.

  • Reduce cholesterol levels.

  • Alleviate issues of irritable bowel syndrome.

  • Reduce vaginal infections.

  • Stimulate the immune system.

  • Increase vitamin production.

  • Enhance the absorption of minerals from foods.

  • Help against constipation and improve toxin removal.

  • Reduce lactose intolerance problems.


Yogurts contain some beneficial bacteria, but the added sugar negates any positive properties. Except for homemade yogurts, such dairy products can further jeopardize digestion.

To store larger quantities of yogurt in stores, it must not spoil. Manufacturers achieve longer shelf life by pasteurizing yogurts, a process that destroys bacteria and extends shelf life. This is great for the manufacturer but means the user won't find the necessary good bacteria in the yogurt.

Additionally, lactose intolerance, which millions unknowingly suffer from in the Western world, causes immune responses in the gut, leading to inflammatory conditions and an increase in the CRP factor (a parameter of the body's inflammatory states).

Instead, I recommend getting your daily dose of probiotic cultures from other sources, such as kefir and sauerkraut. But to achieve the recommended daily dose of probiotic cultures, you would need to eat at least 3-4 generous servings of fermented food daily.

PB Assist+

That's why we talk about and consume PB Assist+ symbiotics:

PB Assist+ is a patented formula made with vegetable capsules containing prebiotic fibers and probiotic microorganisms from six strains. It delivers 6 billion CFU of active probiotic cultures and soluble prebiotic FOS (fructo-oligosaccharides) to the body, which encourages culture adhesion and growth. The slow-release double-capsule delivery method protects sensitive probiotic cultures from stomach acid. PB Assist+ capsules are a unique, safe, and effective way to provide the body with probiotics beneficial for digestion and immune support.
