The bacteria in your gut have a huge impact on your overall health and well-being. They influence how well you digest food and absorb nutrients, the strength of your immune system, and the health of your small intestine and colon… and that barely scratches the surface.
The importance of probiotics for supporting gut health cannot be overstated. The bacteria in your gut are a community and there are many types, or strains, of bacteria that make up that community. Here we’ll take a look at the nine best probiotic strains for supporting gut health, which are included in Young Living's Life-9 Probiotic Supplement.

Additional Probiotic Strands for health
If you are one of many people stuck in a weight loss plateau, you want to hear this... Let me reveal the nine very best supplements to beat a weight loss plateau so that you can finally crush your goals and achieve the body of your dreams.
I help people lose weight safely and mainly if you've already been through other programs, but still have yet to achieve the success you're looking for. If you are doing "everything right" and still at a plateau, you may want to look into optimizing your supplements. Besides taking a daily multivitamin, there are a few key supplements that may help curb appetite or boost your metabolism.
Here's the short list:
(this is not the same as thecalcium supplements that you might take for your bone health. Calcium pyruvate is different. It is a natural substance naturally made in our bodies that helps with metabolism in the digestion of carbohydrates. Supplementing with calcium pyruvate should increase the amount of energy burn therefore allowing for more fat burning this is backed by scientific research. By the way the University of Pittsburgh found that calcium pyruvate does have a fat burning effect obese women were put on a 1,000 calorie diet for 21 days during this study the group receiving calcium pyruvate experienced 48% higher fat loss amounting to 3.2 extra pounds.
Chromium is an essential mineral that helps regulate blood sugar and cholesterol levels reduces carb cravings, reduces fat mass, increases lean body mass and, combats insulin resistance. Although you can usually get enough chromium through diet there are supplements available a study by the biomedical research center at Louisiana State University found that taking 1000 milligrams of chromium supplements per day helps reduce hunger and food cravings, food intake and body weight.
CONJUGATED LINOLEIC ACID
Conjugated linoleic acid is also known as CLA.
CLA is a powerful polyunsaturated fatty acid that's found primarily in high quality beef and dairy products and may reduce body fat while preserving muscle however quality counts grass-fed beef has 300 to 500 percent higher amounts of CLA than other beef. So the best way to get CLA is through diet, but is not as effective CLA. Supplements can provide a decent amount vitamin b-12.
Cobalamin (b12) in is an essential b vitamin that plays a key role in cell metabolism and energy production. B12 basically helps converts fat into energy, so it's no wonder why it's so commonly used as a weight-loss supplement.
Not just for bones and teeth, it can actually help you lose weight we've known for a long time that vitamin D deficiency is associated with obesity, but recent research has found that taking vitamin D supplements can aid in weight loss a study of 400 patients found that those who took Vit. D lost 15% more weight.
7-keto DHEA this has been clinically shown to increase metabolism and contribute to healthy weight loss paired with diet and exercise 7 keto DHEA has been shown to accelerate fat loss threefold without any stimulant effect on the body.
5-HTP is often used to control appetite and limit calorie intake. Many diet pills work by boosting the metabolism through stimulant mechanisms, but this only causes short-term unsustainable weight loss with potentially long-term side effects. Using 5-HTP for weight loss works in a different way. Although it's not a stimulant, it helps to curb hunger cravings. This makes it easier to avoid overeating and consequently lose weight.
If you're familiar with the French paradox, which I think you are, the thought that French people can eat and drink what they want and still remain slim; then you may be familiar with Resveratrol, which is an antioxidant derived from red wine. There's ongoing research that suggests to incorporate this powerful supplement into your daily routine. In regard to metabolism, it functions as an appetite suppressant, which can help you eat less and lose weight. RESVERATROL has many other health benefits.
The community of microorganisms living in your digestive tract – better known as gut flora – play an important role in all aspects of your health including weight loss. In fact a healthy gut is the hidden key to weight loss. By taking probiotics you can help balance your gut flora. You can get probiotics from fermented foods such as natural yogurts and pickles or you can take live culture supplements.

When fragrance is inhaled, the odor molecules travel of the nose where they’re trapped by olfactory membranes that are well protected by the lining inside the nose. When stimulated by oder molecules, this lining of nerve cells triggers electrical impulses to the olfactory bulb in the brain. Because the limbic system is directly connected to those parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels, and hormone balance, essential oils can have profound physiological and psychological effects. The sense of smell is the only one of the five senses directly linked to the limbic lobe of the brain - the emotional control center. Anxiety, depression, fear, anger, and joy all emanate from this region, all other senses are routed through the thalamus.
