Bloating, unwanted gases, slow bowel movements, diarrhea, discomfort. These are all signals of poor gut health and are not symptoms you should live daily with. If these symptoms do sound familiar, it’s time to understand what you can do to nourish your gut and improve your digestive health.
We always promote a food first approach to gut health but the reality of life makes things tricky. Our busy lives and high stress lead to poor food choices, making it vital we supplement our diet with gut friendly ingredients.
The Ethos Good Gut is formulated by nutritional experts to support the stressed person with a range of digestive needs. Our unique blend combines the three musketeers of gut health; probiotics, prebiotics, and digestive enzymes. So why are these ingredients important and what benefits will you see?
Probiotics are live microorganisms, often referred to as “good bacteria,” that reside in our digestive tract. They help maintain a balanced gut microbiome, which is essential for efficient digestion and a robust immune system. They can even influence mental health, as the gut-brain connection suggests a link between gut health and mood regulation.
These beneficial bacteria can be found in fermented foods like yogurt, kefir, and sauerkraut or can be taken as supplement. Incorporating probiotics into your daily diet can help crowd out and stop the proliferation of harmful bacteria, reducing the risk of digestive issues, such as bloating, constipation and diarrhea. Due to the deficiencies of the modern diet, supplementing with a good probiotic is often necessary. Our Good Gut supplement contains 10 billion friendly bacteria per day to give your microbiome a boost.
Prebiotics Help Probiotics to Thrive
Prebiotics are non-digestible fibers that serve as food or fuel for probiotics. They promote the growth and activity of these beneficial bacteria in your gut.
Sources of prebiotics include whole grains, onions, garlic, and asparagus. By consuming prebiotic-rich foods, you create an ideal environment for probiotics to flourish.
Feel Good After Eating with Digestive Enzymes
Digestive enzymes, on the other hand, are crucial for breaking down food into absorbable nutrients. They are produced naturally by our bodies but can also be found in certain foods. Insufficient digestive enzymes can lead to bloating, gas, and nutrient deficiencies. We have extracted seven key digestive enzymes from enzyme-rich foods like papaya and pineapple and added it to our Good Gut supplement. These enzymes will support you at mealtime to digest your food, helping with regularity and supporting a happy gut.
Three is Better than One
A healthy gut is the epicentre of overall health. Probiotics, prebiotics, and digestive enzymes are essential players in maintaining this delicate balance. By including these in your daily routine, you can start to enjoy improved digestion, enhanced immunity, and less discomfort. Our Good Gut product is a unique proprietary formula that combines all three components, meaning you only have to take one supplement to support your gut health journey.
