Healthy Gut

August 12, 2019

All nutrition and hydration we take into our body goes through the gut or gastrointestinal (GI) system. A huge portion of the immune system is in the GI system. Keeping the GI system healthy and functioning at an optimal level should be a priority.

        There are 4 pillars to a healthy gut.

  • Probiotics: Our bodies are filled with trillions “good” and “bad” bacteria. If we are not feeling well or are taking an antibiotic this could mean that you have more “bad” bacteria than good. That is why it is suggested to take a probiotic daily to health restore the “good” bacteria back into your system.

  • Fish Oil: omega-3 fatty acids that are in fish oil are essential fatty acids, which means that although we need then to stay healthy, the human body cannot produce then on its own, so we must get them from food or supplements. It also helps our immune system healthy and ready to fight.

  • Vitamin D: research has shown that vitamin D plays a very important role in maintaining a healthy balance of gut microbiome and has a positive influence on gastrointestinal disorders.

  • Digestive Enzymes: The digestive enzymes are needed to help digest protein, fat, and carbohydrates. The enzymes are found in the foods that we eat. Therefore, it’s important to eat the health foods to get the proper nutrition that our body needs to function!
