Why Guthealth is important
Guthealth – Why is it so important?
The gut is the basis of our health – it’s the first line of defence against pathogens, it’s where we digest and absorb nutrients and where we house our gut microbes, also known as gut bacteria. Poor gut health is now thought to be strongly linked to a compromised immune system, malnutrition and poor mood regulation, and plays a role in arthritis and obesity, according to a recent review of scientific literature published in the journal BMC Medicine.
A gut cleanse is a necessary step in repairing a poor gut. A good cleanse will replace foods that aggravate and compromise our gastrointestinal health with gut-friendly foods that do three things – ‘heal and seal’ the gastrointestinal tract; provide probiotics for healthy gut bacteria; and provide fibre for bowel health. Think of the gut like a car. A gut cleanse is like a service, and gut-friendly foods and supplements are like premium fuel.
This programme is more than a quick fix, you will be feeding your body with nutritional support products that give your body the nutrients it needs to function while maintaining a low caloric intake. These supplements support digestion and absorption of nutrients, protect and heal gut lining and repopulate good bacteria for bowel health. This is an essential step towards optimal gut health and rapid weightloss occurs as your body burns existing fat stores.
