More on SIBO:
Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) is a condition where there is a known overgrowth of antagonistic bacteria primarily found in the small intestine. SIBO can be caused by having low stomach acid, H. Pylori infection, gastric bypass surgery, overuse of certain medications, such as antacids and proton pump inhibitors, certain bowel obstructions, hypothyroidism, overuse of antibiotics, among others. Symptoms of SIBO include gas, bloating, abdominal pain, nausea, indigestion, diarrhea, constipation, and others. Some people may not know they have this condition. If you have been diagnosed with SIBO or suspect you might have SIBO, it's important to work with your doctor to test for this condition and resolve it prior to adding Gut Food into your routine.
