Why You Should Care About Gut Health

  blog post author icon   blog post published date icon   01/12/16

The Gut (think intestinal/digestive tract) is where approximately 80% of your immune system lives. It's been overlooked in the general healthcare world, and here's why you should care about and for it.

Do you want to prevent things like cancer, diabetes, auto-immune disease, and other scary conditions?

Then you need to care about GUT HEALTH. It's not a glamorous topic like skin rejuvenation or fat loss, but it's imperative. Researchers now say that most of the immune system lives in the gut. It is essentially the one system of the body that controls how healthy or unhealthy our bodies will be. Without your immune system functioning properly, you aren't going to live the life you desire to live.

Our health determines whether or not we can reach our goals, have time for those we love, and go for our dreams. I know that's a lot to put into the intestinal tract, but I've learned from experience! I had several years of chronic fevers, pain, and health struggles. And during that time, I couldn't be the wife, mom, friend, or person I wanted to be. My health held me back.

NuMedica Supplements for Boosting Your Immune System

As I've transitioned into working full time, one of the first ways I struggled was with my gut health. Stress can cause significant issues with your immune system, as well as your energy and vitality. I have turned to some new supplements that have helped me tremendously with my immune boosting.

NuMedica Alpha Lipoic Acid

NuMedica Alpha Lipoic Acid Controlled Uptake - 120 tablet professional dietary supplement

The first is Alpha Lipoic Acid. This nutrient is naturally occurring in green, leafy vegetables. It is fat and water-soluble and can permeate every area of the cell to help eliminate free radicals . Free radicals are like cellular rust and cause aging and breakdown within our bodies. It stabilizes blood sugar levels . Alpha Lipoic Acid is also unique in its ability to cross the blood-brain barrier and can help eliminate brain fog. It's also been shown to be protective against brain diseases like Alzheimer's and dementia disorders.

NuMedica ImmunoG PRP Powder

NuMedica ImmunoG PRP Powder - 30 servings professional dietary supplement

The second is NuMedica ImmunoG PRP Powder. There is so much amazing research about its ability to help the body, particularly the gut, that it is truly astounding! This whole food supplement is full of PRPs (proline-rich polypeptides), which work at healing the body in some very unique ways. It has been shown to help heal all body tissues, as well as helping to increase lean muscle mass and bone mass.

NuMedica Tri-Flora Plus

NuMedica Tri-Flora Plus - 60 capsule professional dietary supplement.

The last, is my old-faithful, Tri-Flora Plus. The gut is filled with bacteria; believe it or not, that is good! It's a mini-ecosystem that, when in balance, is our best defense against many diseases. Good bacteria break down the foods that go through our intestines. Bad bacteria from the infection can sometimes invade; at that point, we are often prescribed antibiotics. When you take ANTI-Biotics, you must balance them with PRO-Biotics! Most Americans have way too little of the pro-biotic strains of bacteria. This can lead to things like constipation, as well as loose stool. It works to keep your gut in good working order and is something we use every day, not just during/after antibiotic use.

All these are safe and effective for daily use, but be sure to speak with your physician before changing regimens. This blog has given you some new things to try! We love to hear from you, so leave a comment.
