In this episode of The Gastric Health Show, we discuss how probiotics will make you absorb more protein after gastric sleeve surgery. We also take a look at how bacteria help turn the food you eat into absorbable protein molecules called amino acids.
And, we cover how inadequate levels of friendly bacteria or digestive enzymes can leave you dealing with undigested or partially digested protein. If not dealt with effectively, this can negatively impact your energy, hair, skin, nails, etc.
We end this episode by detailing how you can improve protein digestion with several simple foods that naturally increase both friendly bacteria and enzymes.
