A Healthy Gut is the Foundation for Good Health

A Healthy Gut is the Foundation for Good Health

A healthy gut is the foundation of a healthy body and colon. It plays a crucial role in your overall digestive health and how your body responds to illness, infection, inflammation, healing and even brain health.   Did you know a healthy gut is critical for energy and hormone production?

Brain chemicals such as serotonin and dopamine, which are partly responsible for mood, sleep and appetite, are produced in the digestive system. Irritation or imbalance in the gastrointestinal system sends signals to the central nervous system and the brain that trigger mood changes. The brain-gut connection may also help explain why an emotional shift can affect people coping with irritable bowel syndrome, chronic constipation, or diarrhea. It can affect mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression.

Signals from the gastrointestinal tract may also affect metabolism, raising or reducing the risk for health conditions like type 2 diabetes. Research estimates that about ten percent of arterial wall hardening associated with heart disease may be caused by unhealthy gut microbes not doing their job of removing cholesterol or regulating blood pressure.

If your gut is out of wack, it can wreak havoc on your immune system, leaving you more vulnerable to flu, viruses, infection, and serious diseases and illnesses. The delicate balance of gut health also helps keep inflammation in check and reduces the inflammatory response before it causes harm.

Good Gut Health Matters

  • When the gut lining is inflamed, the health of your gut begins to break down, resulting in many symptoms and health conditions.
  • You may suffer from chronic abdominal discomforts such as increased gas, bloating, stomach distention or abdominal pain.
  • You may suffer from chronic diarrhea or constipation, or you may fluctuate between the two
  • You may be more prone to colds, viruses, and infections or are slow to heal and recover from them
  • You may have changes in mood (that are not attributed to a life situation)
  • Your sleeping patterns may be more disruptive than normal.
  • You may suffer from a lack of concentration or focus.
  • You may struggle with tiredness/lack of energy.
  • You may have more frequent autoimmune flare-ups than usual or have been diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder.
  • Unexplained weight gain or recently been diagnosed with Type II diabetes

Good Gut Health with Healthology GUT-FX

GUT-FX is the ultimate formula to help repair, heal, restore and support your gut

Healthology GUT-FX provides the building blocks your body needs to repair the lining of the intestinal tract. The GUT-FX formula supplies amino acids such as L-glutamine and N-acetyl-glucosamine (NAG) that increase blood flow to the digestive tract and heal the intestinal walls.   The additional herbs in GUT-FX help reduce the damaging inflammatory response and soothe digestion by protecting the delicate mucus membranes of the intestinal lining. GUT FX also provides probiotics to help rebalance the composition of the gut microbiome

This unique formulation reduces the damage caused by unmanaged inflammation and helps modulate the immune system positively.

Consider Taking Healthology GUT-FX as an everyday natural solution to better your gut health if you suffer from any bowel diseases, inflammatory conditions, or any form of bowel or abdominal discomfort. Take in combination with Healthology Soluble Fibre if you suffer from chronic diarrhea or constipation, are more prone to colds, viruses, and infections, or have more frequent autoimmune flare-ups or need to manage cholesterol.

The Added Approach to Gut Health

Take the right type of fibre every day. Healthology Daily Fibre Blend is a blend of insoluble fibre. Its most important role is to promote bowel regularity. It provides bulk to the stool, keeping waste through the digestive tract. Insoluble fibre attracts water into your stool, making it softer and easier to pass with less strain on your bowels. Insoluble fibre is also important for keeping us full after eating because it takes up space in the digestive system. It curbs cravings and promotes feelings of satiety to help us maintain a healthy weight.

Consider Taking Healthology Daily Fibre Blend if you suffer from chronic constipation, diarrhea, fecal incontinence, diverticulitis, or hemorrhoids or looking for weight management. 

Healthology DAILY FIBRE BLEND provides a healthy boost of fibre that can easily be added to meals and snacks. It contains 3g of fibre per serving and is non-GMO, Certified Organic, and free from additives. 

Healthology Soluble Fibre Blend dissolves in water and gastrointestinal fluids when it enters the stomach and intestines. It is transformed into a gel-like substance, which is digested by bacteria in the large intestine. Soluble fibre is an excellent source of food to promote good gut bacteria. Because soluble fibre can slow down the rate of digestion, it provides many other health benefits, such as reducing the amount of digested carbohydrates. It absorbs fat and can prevent some dietary cholesterol from breaking down and being digested. It may also help lower cholesterol and stabilize blood sugars.

Consider Taking Healthology Soluble Fibre if you suffer from IBS that produces chronic diarrhea. Soluble fibre is also an excellent choice if you are trying to lower your cholesterol, slow down the digestion of carbohydrates, manage weight, stabilize blood sugar, lower cholesterol, reduce heart disease risk, and promote healthy digestion.

Healthology SOLUBLE FIBRE BLEND provides 5 grams of soluble fibre from a Certified Organic, non-GMO blend of Baobab and Acacia fibres. It does not contain artificial sweeteners, colours, sugars, or additives and is less likely to cause constipation than psyllium-containing formulas that are often recommended. 

Extra Support When You Need It

Healthology Go Lax Bowel Formula - Although we should strive to identify and fix constipation's cause(s), we may occasionally need additional support to keep our bowels moving. Healthology GO-LAX gently and effectively relieves occasional constipation by stimulating the colon's natural peristaltic action and drawing water into the bowel to soften stool, making it easier to pass. GO-LAX gently activates the colon's pelvic nerves and motility receptors to enhance peristalsis and promote bowel motility. It also soothes and heals the digestive tract to improve irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) symptoms, including reductions in pain and straining and improved stool consistency and frequency.

Consider Taking Healthology GO-LAX if you occasionally need a gentle push to get your bowels moving or if you regularly take prescribed medications that lead to constipation.

Healthology GO-LAX does not contain purgative herbs like senna and cascara sagrada, which can cause cramping pain and are more likely to cause laxative dependence. It can be taken every few days when things get sluggish or once or twice a week for colon maintenance.
