We've got a quick Q'n'A Physique Formula Podcast today where I answer a question about Small Inestinal Bacteria Overgrowth and what to do to get rid of it.QuestionI’m an MMA athlete who regularly eats about 200 grams of carbs per day for my training. I’ve been getting bloated lately so I want to switch up my diet and add probiotic foods like you talk about. Any ideas?AnswerYou actually could have TOO much gut bacteriaSmall intestinal bacterial overgrowth is common in athletes who consume a high amount of carbohydrates. SIBO is a bacterial infection that inters with normal digestion and absorption of food.And you’ll see a whole host of issues like leaky gut over time.The bacteria consume your foods leading to deficiencies in certain nutrition. Iron being one.The bacteria produces gas post meal.The bacteria decreases proper fat absorption.How do you know if you have SIBO? Eat a greek yogurt. Do you get bloated or gassy?Here’s what to do
-Take PF Performance Enzymes to increase food absorption
