The condition of your gut correlates with your cognitive performance. Tiredness, listlessness, dizziness or brain fog can be caused by an unhealthy gut. Also recurrent infections and diseases start in the gut, because 80% of the entire immune system is located there. Gut bacteria play such an important role in appetite and metabolism.
4 Ways You’re Damaging Good Gut Bacteria:
Too Little Fiber
Therefore, it is an absolute duty to promote intestinal health. This can be done through the use of probiotics, juice cleanses, fasting, or also by food that has intestine-promoting properties.
I’ve noticed a huge improvement in my mood, my digestion and well being since I started taking GI assist.
Gi assist contains organic acacia fiber, l- glutamine, cellulase, licorice powder, bromelain, betaine hydrochotide, digeSEB, aloe green Vera Powder, Lactobaccilus rhamnosue and magnesium.
Let’s talk about the benefits of these ingredients:
Acacia Fiber is a prebiotic that has been shown to encourage the growth of “good” bacteria such as Bifidobacteria and lactobacilli. Additionally, Acacia ferments more slowly than most other types of fiber which prevent the sudden release of excess gas that can cause digestive discomfort.
L-glutamine can boost immune cell activity in the gut, helping prevent infection and inflammation, as well as soothing the intestinal tissue. Because L-glutamine is used for energy production, it can support the reduction of intestinal spasms.
Cellulose is the main substance in the walls of plant cells, helping plants to remain stiff and upright. Humans cannot digest cellulose, but it is important in the diet as fibre. Fibre assists your digestive system – keeping food moving through the gut and pushing waste out of the body.
Licorice powder: A study found that an extract containing glabridin and glabrene, which are flavonoids present in licorice root, was effective in relieving stomach discomfort. The extract reduced nausea, stomach pain, and heartburn.
Bromelain is a mixture of enzymes derived from the pineapple fruit or stem. Research suggests that bromelaincan have health benefits, such as reducing inflammation and helping heal wounds.
Bromelain is also used as a digestive aid, for osteoarthritis, and to reduce soreness in aching muscles.
Betaine hydrochloride (HCl) may help to raise the level of acid in the stomach. It may also help with some bowel problems. There is also a prescription drug, Betaine.
DigSeB is a powerful Digestive Enzyme that optimizes digestion of dairy, legumes, cruciferous vegetables, cereal grains, proteins and other food.
Aloe vera is composed of 75 active components like vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that fight disease and support the body’s overall wellness. On a cosmetic level, aloe vera’s anti-inflammatory and analgesic qualities can help to alleviate skin ailments like psoriasis, itchy rashes, sunburn, and dryness.
Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG) is one of the most widely used probiotic strains. Various health effects are well documented including the prevention and treatment of gastro-intestinal infections and diarrhea, and stimulation of immune responses that promote vaccination or even prevent certain allergic symptoms.
Magnesium is an important mineral, playing a role in over 300 enzyme reactions in the human body. Its many functions include helping with muscle and nerve function, regulating blood pressure, and supporting the immune system.
