The Gut Connections


If you want to regain your magnificent energy, feel good allover and achieve long term health then start by fully understand the "Gut Connections".

The gut is no longer seen as an entity with the sole purpose of helping with all aspects of digestion. It’s also being considered as a key player in regulating inflammation (as we all know, inflammation is the common factor for virtually all disease in the body) and immunity (responsible to prevent diseases!).

Look carefully at the image below to see how important taking care of your gut is!

 

Two Points to remember

1. We must balance good and bad bacteria in our intestines.
How?
Simply by taking a probiotic formula morning and night. I prefer to recommnend taking those first thing in the morning in a glass of room temperature water and at night just before retiring (1 capsule A.M. and 2 caps at night).
Product recommended: IN.FORM Metabolic Age Support Probiotic.

2. Protect the lining of the gut.
“A leaky gut is the pathway for how toxins enter the body through the GI tract and create all kinds of mayhem once they are in, sort of like party crashers who slip through security and proceed to make a mess of the venue.”
Take the time to listen to Dr. Chutkan (video below).
Imagine the lining of your gut (intestines) as a net with tiny holes that filter "nutrients" to pass through. These nutients are sent via the blood system to our trillion of cells to create the energy allowing us to simply live!
This lining acts as a safety net preventing big particules to get into our blood system damaging our health.
Some of the unwanted particules that can now pass through include proteins like gluten, bad bacteria and undigested foods particles.
Toxins can also pass through and into your bloodstream causing immune reaction.

What causes a "leaky gut"?

  • Poor diet
  • Chronic stress
  • Toxin overload
  • Bacterial imbalance (lack od probiotics)
  • Sugar (processed)

    Repairing the lining of our "gut" is a must if we want to avoid health issues such as: chronic fatigue, IBS (Irritable bowel syndrome), arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, eczema, psoriasis, depression, anxiety, migraine headaches, muscle pain.

How to repair it?
Probiotic mentioned above, L-Glutamine, Intestinal Soothe and Build
