Go With Your Gut - Intervention Bundle
As I discuss in Go With Your Gut, we're all victims of a damaging dietary past and over-medicating present. And this has left us with varying degrees of digestive distress, malabsorption, bacteria imbalance (dysbiosis), and intestinal permeability.
Provided you’re already following a healthy diet and lifestyle, and aiming to improve it on a daily basis, these are the products I recommend as a step 1 intervention…
Genestra – Multi Strain 50 – 30 capsules
Bacterial imbalance (or dysbiosis) in the gut has become more common than not. And though there are a variety of potential triggers – like inflammatory foods, environmental exposure, and chronic stress – antibiotics appear to be the driving force. Leaving individuals with reduced levels of good gut flora, an overgrowth of bad gut flora, and an increased susceptibility to sickness and infection.
Fortunately, adding beneficial microbes via supplementation can re-establish a positive bacterial environment. With an aggressive intervention, like this 15-strain, 50-billion count probiotic blend, being one of the best ways to do that.
Note – After 30 days of repopulating the gut, switching to a less potent (Gut Maintenance) probiotic is recommended. Along with looking for a product containing prebiotics (like FOS), to ensure the new bacteria stays fed.
Thorne Research – Bio-Gest – 180 capsules
A healthy gut starts with good digestion, and good digestion starts with a healthy gut. Meaning, individuals struggling with any sort of chronic gastrointestinal issue (IBS, reflux, gas, bloating), nutrient deficiency (B12, iron, folate), or inflammatory condition (dermatitis, arthritis) should consider a digestive supplement as a first line of defense. While individuals not yet struggling should consider assessing their digestion before it becomes an issue.
This product contains a considerable dose of hydrochloric acid (HCL), because this is usually the gastric fluid that’s lacking. Especially in older individuals – that tend to secrete less – and those that have relied heavily on antacids and other acid-reducing medications.
Pepsin and protease (14,000 USP/cap) are also present for assistance in protein digestion, and lipase (2,450 USP/cap), ox bile and amylase (15,750 USP/cap) to help with fats and carbohydrates.
