Minerals For Gut Health


 


Pico Zinc

Pico Zinc Completement Formula

Researchers have found that the right amount of zinc is critical to intestinal health and is especially important in protecting the epithelial lining of the gut. A compromise of the epithelial layer of the gut is a factor in many conditions.

ReMag Liquid Magnesium

ReMag Liquid Magnesium Completement Formula

Low magnesium levels can compromise cell membrane integrity, damaging the vital fatty layer in the cell membrane and making it more susceptible to destruc­tion. This allows leakage through the membrane and can contribute to what’s known as, leaky gut.

 

Gut-Friendly Foods 

Food can be one of our biggest allies, or enemies. Balanced nutrition is vital for supplying your digestive system with the proper nutrients. Certain foods (mostly processed, high sugar) allow bad bacteria to thrive, throwing off gut health. A diet packed with vegetables, fruit, beans, lean protein, and whole grains can provide the essential nutrients your body needs, without sacrificing flavor. 

 

Whole Grains
Whole grains provide lots of fiber and added nutrients, including omega-3 fatty acids. Healthy options include: whole oats, spelt, bulgar, millet, and barley.

Leafy Greens
Greens are rich in folate, vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin A, and more. Leafy greens help to optimize the ideal gut microbiome environment. Examples include spinach, kale, brussels sprouts, collard greens, and romaine.

Fish
Fish oils from fresh fish have been shown to support cardiovascular health. Healthy options include anchovies, catfish, flounder, hake, haddock, herring, salmon, trout, whitefish, pollock, mackerel, sardines and butterfish. NRDC recommends that farmed salmon be avoided because it can contain high levels of PCB.

 

Fermented Foods

Add probiotic-rich foods to meals when you can, while focusing on removing and replacing harmful foods. Fermented foods are made through the growth and metabolic activity of a variety of live cultures. Many of these foods are rich sources of live and potentially beneficial bacteria.

A natural probiotic, yogurt, is a fermented dairy product that is full of healthy, beneficial bacteria. Note, however, that the yogurt container label should say that live organisms are present. It should also be free from added sugars and made from whole milk.

In addition to yogurt and kefir, there are many other probiotic-rich, fermented foods that can help your digestion by replenishing your gut’s healthy bacteria. They include: apple cider vinegar, sauerkraut, kombucha, kimchi, miso, actually, any vegetable can be fermented and eaten. Many of these foods are also rich in lactobacilli, a friendly bacteria located in the gut.

Garlic and onions are not only fantastic anti-candida foods, but are also considered to be prebiotics because they serve as food for the beneficial bacteria (probiotics) that keep your microbiome happy. Additional prebiotic-rich foods include plantains, green bananas, asparagus, and legumes. 

 

Eat More Fiber 

Insoluble and soluble fibers undergo fermentation in the large intestine, which means they act as a food source for intestinal bacteria. The bacteria thrive and produce certain gases and acids that stimulate good bacteria production, manage blood glucose levels, support immune health, and more. It’s very important to add enough fermentable fiber to your diet to make your gut bacteria happy. Good thing is, you have lots of choices: 

 

  • Chicory root
  • Jerusalem artichoke
  • Yams
  • Dandelion greens
  • Leeks
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Wheat
  • Bananas

 

If you don’t get enough fiber in your diet, your intestines won’t have enough bulk to work the muscles of the intestines to push things along in a timely fashion. This can result in constipation, or even worse.

 

A diverse microbiome is a thriving one

Eating a wide range of whole foods can support the hundreds of species of bacteria in the intestines and populate the microbiome with diverse microbial cells to support digestive health and comfort. A healthy gut allows you to do more of the things you love, without having to worry about the effects of what you had to eat earlier in the day. 

Stress Management

Although it plays a key role, diet isn’t the only factor. 

We’ve all been there. You’re running late, sitting in traffic, watching closely as each minute passes by. The hypothalamus, a small area in the brain that helps stimulate key functions, sends the signal – send in the stress hormones! When presented with a potentially threatening dilemma, the sympathetic nervous system — a component of the body’s autonomic nervous system, responds by triggering a “fight-or-flight response,” releasing the stress hormone cortisol to make the body alert and prepared to face any threat head on.

In addition to supporting digestive health with gut-friendly nutrients and foods, stress management is an essential component of intestinal health. Stress, sedentary lifestyle, and lack of sleep can send the body into overdrive. Because the gut and brain are in constant communication, stress can affect every part of the digestive system. The burden stress brings can cause physiological changes, like a heightened state of awareness, faster breathing and heart rates, elevated blood pressure, and an increase in muscle tension. Stress can even impact essential functions such as swallowing or the release of enzymes to break down food. Keeping the body in this constant state of “fight or flight’ can directly affect the digestive system by causing an imbalance in gut bacteria, acidity in the stomach, decreased blood flow, inflammation, and much more.

 

6 Tips for Managing Stress

Check out these strategies for simple ways to generate a happier mindset and reduce moodiness and fatigue.

Stay Active
One of the best gifts you can give the body is movement. Regular physical activity helps to naturally relieve tension and anxiety by stimulating endorphins in the brain. Stress hormones, as a result of significant events or day-to-day stress can have an impact on healthy cardiovascular performance. 

Additional long-term benefits of exercise may include:

  • Maintain a healthy resting blood pressure
  • Support for a healthy resting heart rate
  • May improve calories burned to aid weight loss
  • Assist in the ability to draw deeper breaths

Exercises such as running, weightlifting, and yoga have been proven to help our bodies relax and relieve overall tension and stress. Try starting with a daily walk and/or completing your exercise routine outside to provide your body with a daily dose of natural vitamin D.

 

Reach for Nutrient-Rich Foods
Eat with your gut in mind! Stress can directly influence our appetite and cravings so it’s vital to build a healthy relationship with food. You can imagine what happens to digestion in a stressful, cortisol-flooded environment. This can cause a decrease in blood and oxygen flow to the stomach – which slows digestion and absorption. After a bad day, it can be easy to take our emotional distress out on foods high in fat, sugar, or both. Optimizing your diet with some of the gut-friendly foods we highlighted earlier can act as a natural stress-reliever.

 

Magnesium 

Being stressed alone can increase your need for certain nutrients, such as vitamin C, vitamin B, selenium, and magnesium. Minerals like magnesium play a vital role in calming the brain and body. Too little magnesium can easily leave you feeling stressed, panicked, and fatigued. 

Modern farming practices have removed many essential nutrients from the soil, leading to decreased food quality. Some food processing techniques can strip away up to 80% of the magnesium content! This means that even if you eat a healthy diet with nutrient-rich foods like fruits, green vegetables, nuts, and seeds, you can still be magnesium deficient. When combined with a healthy, diverse diet and stress management strategies, taking a superior quality magnesium supplement can make up a foundational part of restoring and balancing the body.

 

Sleep
A common side effect of stress is the inability or struggle to sleep restfully. Lack of sleep only continues to cause a cycle of stress. At night your body needs to rest. The natural electrical and magnetic activity dancing between our cells slows down. Or at least, it wants to. If your body is still being bombarded by EMFs (electric and magnetic fields) it may not be able to find complete rest. To improve your sleep hygiene, you should develop a plan for a sleep schedule and stick to it.

  • Try meditating before bedtime to relax and calm the mind
  • Adjust your environment - opting for a dark, quiet, and cool place
  • Remove all unnecessary electronic devices from your bedroom
  • Turn off electronic devices at least 1 hour before bed
  • Finish dinner three hours before going to bed, if you possibly can. Have dinner between 6 and 7pm if your bedtime is between 9 and 10pm.

 

Meditation
Relax your mind and reset your gut.

Mindful-based strategies teach the body coping skills and better ways to tackle stress. It’s no wonder why meditation and medication sound so similar. Nothing quite affects stress levels like the little voice that pops up inside of our heads, but meditation can help by quieting your internal dialogue and promoting calmness, increased energy, and mood. Additional options can include deep breathing and yoga.

  • Find a comfortable, quiet place where you can self-reflect and quiet your mind. If you have trouble sitting still, you can even try a walking meditation!
  • Try to give yourself a minimum of 15 minutes to allow yourself to receive the benefit of slowing down your mind.
  • Your body is loose and your eyes should also be relaxed. Don’t let your mind comment on what you are looking at beyond appreciating what you see.
  • You may or may not want to focus on your breath. For some it can be a way to still the mind by focusing on the circular flow of your breath. Or you may count your breaths in and out. One-two-three-four breathing in and one-two-three-four breathing out.

You can apply the practice of meditation to any action. There is no right or wrong way, there is only you with your intent to meditate and the rest will take care of itself. Some mention they do their chores while practicing a form of meditation. The cleaning, folding, washing, tidying all gets done but in a relaxed state. It’s usually a quiet time too. You’re either alone or everyone avoids you so they won’t have to pitch in! Staying intentional keeps your mind from wandering. Focus on tasks that are usually not so complex that you have to use much of your mind at all. A great added benefit is that you can look forward to this time rather than seeing the everyday duties as mundane. 

 

Connect with Community
Emotional support is an important protective factor for dealing with life’s difficulties. Spending time with others who love and support us is a natural way to calm and lower stress levels. Do you like to hike, sing, create art, play sports, or get involved in local groups? You’re more likely to connect with people who share common interests. Join a club or try signing up for a class that will allow you to meet others.

 

Whatever self-care means to you, find a personal practice you can implement in your daily routine to support overall physical, mental and emotional wellness.
