Bowel Wars: Hydrogen Sulfide vs. Butyrate


Sulfur dioxide preservatives in dried fruit, sulfites in wine, and the putrefaction of undigested animal protein in the colon can release hydrogen sulfide, the rotten egg gas associated with inflammatory bowel disease.

More than 35 years ago studies started (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/412611) implicating sulfur dioxide preservatives in the exacerbation of asthma. This so-called “sulfite-sensitivity” seems to affect only about (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8586770) 1 in 2000 people, so I recommended those with asthma avoid it, but otherwise I considered the preservative harmless. I am now not so sure, and advise people to avoid it when possible. How could companies just add things to foods without adequate safety testing? See Who Determines if Food Additives are Safe? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/who-determines-if-food-additives-are-safe/) For other additives that may be a problem, see Titanium Dioxide & Inflammatory Bowel Disease (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/titanium-dioxide-inflammatory-bowel-disease/) and Is Carrageenan Safe? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/is-carrageenan-safe/)

More on this epid fermentation battle in our gut in Stool pH and Colon Cancer (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/stool-ph-and-colon-cancer/).

Does the sulfur-containing amino acid methionine sound familiar? You may remember it from such hits as Starving Cancer with Methionine Restriction (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/starving-cancer-with-methionine-restriction/) and Methionine Restriction as a Life Extension Strategy (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/methionine-restriction-as-a-life-extension-strategy/).

These short chain fatty acids released by our good bacteria when we eat fiber and resistant starches is what may be behind the second meal effect: Beans and the Second Meal Effect (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/beans-and-the-second-meal-effect/).

What about Crohn’s? Glad you asked! See Preventing Crohn’s Disease With Diet (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/preventing-crohns-disease-with-diet/) and Dietary Treatment of Crohn’s Disease (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/achieving-remission-of-crohns-disease/).

Do Probiotics Cause Gas And Bloating?


Probiotics are good bacteria that line your digestive tract and support your body’s capacity to absorb nutrients and fight infection. The root of the word probiotic comes from the Greek word pro, literally translating as “promoting,” and biotic, meaning “life.”

There are actually 10 times more probiotics in your gut than cells in your body!

Probiotics are usually found in fermented foods or taken as supplements. What’s more, they appear to be safe for most individuals.

Benefits of taking probiotics:

Probiotics promote a healthy balance of gut bacteria and have been strongly associated with a wide range of health benefits.

Numerous people with health issues, including – chronic fatigue, thyroid imbalances, joint pain, autism, psoriasis, and many other conditions don’t realize that these serious conditions actually originate in the gut.

An imbalance is called dysbiosis, and this has possible links to diseases of the intestinal tract, such as –  irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, and celiac disease, as well as more systemic conditions like obesity and diabetes.

Research shows that probiotics can help with a great deal more — boosting immune systems and warding off infection as well as helping to improve women’s health and even fighting obesity.

Probiotics can also help offset the bacterial imbalance caused by taking antibiotics. Antibiotics kill the healthy bacteria in the gut along with the harmful ones, usually leading to gas, cramping or diarrhea.

Probiotic therapy may also help people with irritable bowel syndrome and Crohn’s disease. Clinical trial results are mixed, but a few small studies suggest that certain probiotics may help prevent relapse of Crohn’s disease and maintain remission of ulcerative colitis.

Your healthy bacteria play an important role in the development and maintenance of this mucosal immune system in your large intestine. They compete with the less-friendly microbes for both food and attachment sites on the receptor cells.

The growing body of recent studies on gut health postulates that the gut and the brain operate on the same axis. Probiotics have been established in numerous studies to alleviate the symptoms of depression.

Probiotics adverse effects

In general, probiotic supplements and foods are thought to be safe for most individuals, though some sensitive people with immune system problems shouldn’t take them.
