Inside each of us is a unique, symbiotic ecosystem, as complex as the sky or ocean, that populates our digestive tract (our gut). Its symbiotic nature works with the mouth, esophagus, stomach, intestines, colon, nervous system, and brain to digest food, eliminate waste, provide immune and environmental contaminant protection, and keep the body healthy.
This living community of bacteria, digestive enzymes, acids, insoluble fiber, and the food we eat contains up to 100 trillion bacteria and 60,000 distinct genes, more than twice the genes as in the human genome. Do you know that about half of your poop is bacteria that has given its life to support yours?
A happy and healthy gut does more than just digest food and help you maintain regularity. Many of the most successful people in the world rely on their gut instincts to close the deal, make the sale, and get the win. A healthy digestive system can contribute to a stronger immune system and better overall quality of life. With so much riding on gut health, the health savvy understand the importance of treating it well with good food and gut support supplements.
How Supplements Help Boost Gut Health
Humans participate in many daily activities that have a direct impact on our gut health and digestive system. The most basic activities shared among people from all career backgrounds and walks of life that impact the gut include eating, sleeping, drinking, breathing, and state of mind.
Stress can have a significant negative impact on gut health. Calmness is nurturing to the gut.
Believe it or not, what you breathe impacts the gut. Recent studies have shown that when you breathe in environmental contaminants, the lungs and sinuses try to clear these contaminants with mucus, which is drained directly into the esophagus and stomach. Mold, gasses and aerosols are all cleared through the gut. That’s why when you are exposed to smells from gasoline, paint, mold, air fresheners, or other toxins, a person will often experience stomach upset. The protective mechanisms in the gut must be strong enough to withstand multiple sources of environmental contaminants – being contaminants from food, water, and air.
Individuals who do not eat the best (thank you grab and go counter) or who struggle to get enough sleep and limit stress could experience gut issues such as:
Occasional abdominal or stomach discomfort, sometimes after eating
Occasional burping, gas, and minor indigestion
Feeling bloated and weight fluctuations
Food poisoning, Montezuma’s Revenge, Traveler’s Diarrhea
Mild occasional diarrhea
Don’t let gut discomfort dictate your performance and keep you from being your very best, whether it be in the office, out on the field, or at home. Even with the best intentions, a balanced diet and low stress lifestyle may not be enough to keep occasional gut health issues from diminishing your performance.
Make gut health supplements your secret weapon in helping you achieve more optimal performance levels and overall quality of life with perks like:
Experiencing a calmer digestive system
Minimizing gut related discomfort
Feeling ready to tackle the next task
Enjoying work-related or grab-and-go meals without worry
