Gut health is incredibly important for your overall digestive health. Ordinarily, our guts should contain healthy bacteria which fight off nasty pathogens and diseases that enter the body time and again. So, a healthy gut means you have a stronger immune system, good digestion and brain health, improved mood and healthy sleep.
Unfortunately, poor eating habits, stress and antibiotics (including residues from food) can often cause the fine balance between the good and bad bacteria to change.
This means lots of us may eat healthily, but because of a bacterial imbalance in the gut, your body may struggle to absorb all of the nutrients in the foods you eat.
Our mission is to provide premium supplements which combine good nutrients, vitamins and minerals, with digestive enzymes, probiotic blends and superfoods, to restore your gut's good bacteria and help cognitive function.
How can you improve your gut health?
Probiotics are living strains of bacteria that add to the good bacteria in your digestive system. You can often find live and active bacteria in foods like greek yoghurt, kefir, sauerkraut, tempeh and many more. Probiotic supplements can also help add friendly bacteria to your gut.
Prebiotics are foods which are high in certain types of fibre which can help improve your digestive health. Eating such foods can increase the levels of friendly bacteria in your gut, ease digestive problems and provide an immune system boost. Examples of such foods, which are contained in many of our supplements, are chicory root, dandelion greens, konjac root, flaxseeds, seaweed, asparagus, bananas, and many more. Make sure you carefully check the ingredients list in our supplements to your selection means you benefit from as many prebiotics as possible!
3. Digestive Enzymes
These are biologically active proteins which can break down food, get rid of toxins and even help build muscle. Our own bodies naturally create many digestive enzymes, but many people, particularly those with medical problems or of old age, become deficient in these enzymes over time. Improving your digestive health by ingesting digestive enzymes can improve your body's ability to prevent and fight off medical conditions, providing an immunity boost.
4. Lower Stress Levels and Sleep More
Stress can weaken your intestinal barrier which can affect digestion. It can also allow gut bacteria to enter your body.
The quality of your sleep is also linked to your gut microbiome so not sleeping well can lead to further health issues.
By managing stress levels and regulating your sleeping pattern, this can increase the level of good gut microbiomes in your body.
Take care of your body and your body will take care of you.
