Why is it Important to Support Your Gastrointestinal System?
Your gastrointestinal tract (gut) is a long tube that stretches from the mouth, all the way to your anus. It is responsible for 2 extremely important processes in our body. The first process is digestion.
No matter how healthy (or not) your diet may be, optimal gut health is important for digestion so that you can absorb nutrients from food efficiently, utilizing the building blocks that you need to maintain your body, as well as efficiently converting the food you eat into energy.
The second extremely important process is your immune system. In fact, around 70% of your immune system is in your gut, which means good gut health is essential for optimal immune function to fight off bacteria, viruses and other pathogens that are dangerous to our bodies and can make us unwell.
A healthy gut should contain many billions of “good” bacteria which multiply rapidly and create an acidic environment in the intestines so that the “bad” bacteria isn’t able to proliferate. The balance of these bacteria is often referred to as the gut microbiome (referring to microbes that are present in your digestive system).
When your gut is not in good health, it will struggle to get rid of toxins (like endotoxin, believed to be a key factor in premature aging ) and substances that are left over from metabolic processes (metabolic waste) that must be excreted because they cannot be used by our bodies.
What Impacts the Health of Your Gut?
Digestive symptoms such as diarrhea, constipation, bloating, excess gas, abdominal pain, acid reflux and more can develop, but poor gut health can cause inflammation throughout the body, leading to a myriad of different health issues.
In fact, ancient traditional modalities of health and healing, like Ayurvedic Medicine, actually believed that ‘all’ ill health had its origins in the gut.
The gut is also known as an “extension of the brain” because its walls are lined with a system of neurons that help to govern the function of the gastrointestinal tract, which is known as the intrinsic or enteric nervous system.
Again, this was known for thousands of years by Ancient Easters systems like Taoism, the origin of Acupuncture and Chi Kung, who often referred to the gut as the ‘second brain’.
Poor gut health has also been linked to the development of autoimmune disorders.
- Eating in a stressed state, usually leading to eating too quickly and not chewing your food enough
- Chronic Stress
Can You Test The Bacteria in Your Gut?
Because your gut microbiome is so important to your overall health , it’s important to understand what’s going on, and how your gut is balanced.
Microbiome tests can be conducted by your physician or at home. Although some tests use blood or saliva, the most comprehensive microbiome tests will require a stool sample.
Your stool sample will be sent to a laboratory to be tested where they will analyze the balance of microbes in your gastrointestinal system.
This will help you and your doctor understand if there is an imbalance of microbes that is causing problems to your overall health.
We recommend the Biomesight test for giving a very detailed and accurate picture at a very affordable price.
The Top 8 Ways to Improve Your Gut Health:
- Eat a clean, diverse organic diet full of nutrient dense foods. Processed (especially fast) foods cause harm to your gut microbiome .
Be sure to include prebiotic foods (a type of fiber that isn’t digested)  such as oats, bananas, chicory and asparagus, because they inhibit the growth of certain types of good bacteria. Note: prebiotic foods can make issues worse IF you have too many bacteria in the small intestine. If you suspect this is the case, get the advice of a professional who specializes in gut health.
- Eat in a relaxed state, where you will naturally eat slower and chew your food properly. Being in a stressed state is sometimes necessary, but while you are in a stressed state, digestion slows down significantly, and you produce much less of the digestive juices you need to sanitize and process your food, like saliva, stomach acid and bile. You’ll also tend to eat more quickly and not chew enough.
So make sure you calm down before you start eating, even if it’s just taking a few deep breaths. This is where the tradition of saying grace comes from: even if you have no religious leanings, you may want to consider it as a way of refocusing your mind to be in a less stressed state, which will help you digest better!
And once you’re relaxed, it will be easier to chew your food enough, sometimes as much as 30 times before swallowing, which helps your body to more easily digest the food and absorb as many nutrients as possible .
- Find out if you’re intolerant to certain foods. Eating foods you're intolerant to will affect your digestive health, resulting in bloating, gas, diarrhea and more . Speak to your physician to organize a skin prick or blood test.
Another way to narrow down your intolerances is to record the foods you’ve eaten - be sure to write down how these foods make you feel. Only change one or two things at a time, so that you can easily identify any changes.
If you suspect a food, many recommend an elimination diet, where you remove the suspected food for around a week, and then introduce it again, seeing if you notice any symptoms when you add it back into your diet.
- Limit alcohol consumption. Alcohol can induce changes to the microbiome in the gastrointestinal tract, (due to its ability to kill bacteria, but not kill and often feed yeasts such as candida) which can lead to increased oxidative stress amongst other problems .
- Improve your sleep. Poor sleep and sleep deprivation can affect your microbiome diversity . Our Sleep Aid Plus can also help, and read the page for more info on how to Sleep better naturally.
Drink more water and stay hydrated. This is another way to encourage microbiome diversity , and staying hydrated is essential to your overall health, as well as reducing the likelihood of constipation.
- Take a probiotic full of live “good” bacteria that can help to boost your gut microbiome:
Probiotic Ingredients That Can Increase the Health of Your Gut
Introducing Feel Younger® Probiotic 40 Billion with Maktrek® Bi-Pass Technology
In addition to the above ingredients, we’ve added Maktrek’s patented proprietary Bi-Pass Technology.
Maktrek is a patented, groundbreaking formula that enables better absorption of probiotics. This is especially important because most probiotics don’t actually absorb efficiently in the digestive tract and are usually just broken down by digestive acids in the stomach.
With Maktrek Bi-Pass Technology, the easy to swallow capsule has an added layer of protection that allows the probiotic to travel through the stomach without being broken down. Once in the intestines, the capsule can release the probiotic where your body can use the live bacteria effectively.
We understand that it’s not always easy, nor practical to implement a variety of lifestyle changes - especially all at once.
We’d advise that you make as many of the changes listed further up this page as possible, but to do so 1 or 2 at a time, make sure they stick and then move onto more.
In the meantime, you can support your body with essential good bacteria it needs to maintain a healthy gut microbiome.
By combining these bacteria into an easy to swallow capsule with Maktrek Bi-Pass Technology, we’ve taken the stress out of using probiotics that can’t efficiently and effectively deliver the bacteria to where it needs to be.
Here at Feel younger, we believe in providing strong doses at reasonable prices. Our Probiotic capsules provide a strong and healthy dose of billions of live bacteria, and will cost you no more than $35, with discounts available on multiple bottle and subscription purchases.
How Do You Take Feel Younger® Probiotic 40 Billion with Maktrek® Bi-Pass Technology?
Take two capsules once a day.
DO NOT exceed two capsules a day.
Although rare, some people may experience bloating, gas or constipation when taking probiotics.
ALWAYS consult a healthcare professional before taking any new supplements.
