If you have not heard about the benefits of good gut health and your health & wellness, then today is the day we learn why gut health is so important and what you can do to improve it.
Let's get started by talking about the fact that our body is made up of 70-80% of water (this percentage varies depending on weight) and in this composition half of it is in our guts. The digestive system has to process every single thing we eat or drink. We need to keep in mind that food cannot be processed by our body unless it is broken down into the most basic components. In addition to this, we need to keep in mind that anything we eat or drink has a direct effect on our mood and energy levels. Imagine having a stuffy nose when you are trying to do an intense workout - work out will not go very well with a stuffy nose, am I right? A ”stuffy” stomach has the same effect.
It is not just our digestive system that requires optimum health, our immune system does too because if either one of these systems is compromised, the other will suffer as well. For example, a weak immune system can be caused by an unhealthy digestive system. In addition to this, a compromised immune system causes illness and diseases to enter our body, thus compromising the digestive system as well.
This is why 1st Phorm's Opti-Greens 50 plays a vital role. Opti-Greens 50 is an immune-boosting greens powder. Every serving of Opti-Greens 50 is packed with 50 hand-chosen, gluten-free, alkalizing ingredients to help build a strong immune system and stay healthy. Opti-Greens 50 has a diverse blend of fruits, veggies, and grasses to maximize the nutrients you’ll get in every scoop.
The importance of having a healthy gut isn't just to have a digestive system that can work properly to provide essential nutrients, but it is also to keep things in balance in the body so an illness or disease doesn't take advantage. In addition, it is important because if you don't have good gut health you will have a poor immune system.
The top five benefits of good gut health include:
1. Good gut health means good health
Recent studies have linked the bacteria that live in our gut to almost every disease or disorder there is, including obesity, cancer, autoimmune conditions and mental illness. So, it is no surprise that avoiding things known to have a negative effect on these bacteria - such as processed foods, sugar, artificial sweeteners, artificial colors, artificial flavors, GMOs and pesticides - can help us live healthier lives.
2. Good gut health helps you lose weight
Being overweight or obese increases your risk of a number of diseases, some of which are caused by the types of bacteria that can live in your gut. Even if you don't suffer from some of those conditions, being overweight or obese increases your risk for developing them later on, so getting yourself to a healthier weight has benefits that go way beyond just looking better.
“Opti-Greens 50 contains a Glycemic Balance Blend to regulate glycemic response. Balancing this can give you a smooth boost of energy, instead of the highs and lows in energy from glycemic levels that spike and crash.” This helps reduce the cravings that contribute to weight gain and prevent weight loss success.
3. Good gut health means less bloat, which means looking and feeling better physically.
Healthy bacteria found in your digestive system can also play a part in how you look and feel.
Opti-Greens 50 helps decrease bloating significantly.
I went from looking 6 months pregnant every time I ate to no bloat just by adding this supplement to my diet.
4. Good gut health means good dental hygiene
Because the bacteria in your mouth affect your teeth, poor oral health can also be an indicator of microbial activity elsewhere in your body. Moreover, because dental plaque (or biofilm) is made up of bacteria and the sugars we eat, brushing and flossing to remove it can also help improve gut health.
5. Good gut health means good energy levels
Bacteria make some of our most important vitamins such as biotin (vitamin B7), vitamin K and thiamine (vitamin B1), which of course affect your energy levels. A healthy gut does more than just keep you alive, it helps keep you going strong.
If that wasn't enough.....
In addition to these top five reasons for good gut health, there are also connections between the bacteria in our digestive system and our moods, muscle pain, skin conditions like acne and psoriasis, food cravings (salt, fat, sugar), athletic performance, allergies and much more.
Opti-Greens 50 can be added to your favorite smoothies, protein shakes, or yogurts. This makes it easy for you to reach your daily intake of fruits and vegetables without having to eat them all in one sitting!
