For Leaky Gut Support and Comfort

It's what's inside that counts, so give your gut the support it needs. Our Healthy Gut lets you do more of the things you love, and worry less about what you had to eat. Contains vitamins and herbs proven by research to support the digestive system and improve gut lining, such as Glutamine and N-Acetyl Glucosamine. Also contains an antioxidant mix to calm free radicals. As always, our products reflect our high standards - we do not add in empty fillers or confusing preservatives.

L-Glutamine 500 mg

- Protects the gut mucosal structure and improves gut immune response

N-Acetyl-D-Glucosamine 300 mg

Slipper Elm Bark Powder 100 mg

MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) 100 mg

Gut health is the crux of our immune system, and when the intestinal walls become weak or damaged, toxins and bacteria begin to seep into our blood stream and cause havoc on our health. This supplement powder was specifically formulated to strengthen the stomach lining, improve intestinal walls and tighten the junctions in the digestive tract to ensure that what goes in our bodies passes as it should, giving us the nutrition we need and eliminating the rest.

 

Protecting your gut is the smart move even if you are symptom free. It’s easier to maintain health than to regain it. It is imperative to have a strong digestive tract with a healthy microbiome in order for the substances we take in to pass effectively through the body without leaking bacteria, toxins or waste through the digestive linings or at the junctions. This is the premise of leaky gut syndrome or intestinal permeability which is linked to most autoimmune diseases.

 

Much of our digestive tract can be protected and maintained through a proper diet filled with whole foods, lightly cooked with little to no processing and limited medications and artificial substances entering our system. Unfortunately, we can’t all live that way and our health is suffering. If you have chronic bowel issues, numerous food sensitivities, a weak immune system, fatigue, brain fog or have been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, you could be fighting a leaky gut.

 

Healing and strengthening the gut directly improves the immune system and helps the body overcome anything it may be fighting. Along with the ingredients above, this particular formula also supplies your body with copper, potassium, quercetin dihydrate and aloe-vera leaf extract, all of which support and heal the gut.

Encourage Healthy Habits for Aging Parents With These Tips

It goes without saying that you want your senior parents to stay healthy. Furthermore, it’s a given that much of their staying healthy depends on maintaining a healthy diet. That, however, is the challenge. Wanting your aging parents to have good dietary routines is one thing, but enforcing or encouraging those routines are different practices altogether. You can’t always be hands-on with your parents’ health, but there are some things you can do to help them follow a healthy diet.

Caring for Parents as They Age

Know what they should eat

The most important step in helping your parents with their diet is educating yourself on healthy eating for seniors. This is a broad topic; there is not a set menu for seniors that makes it easy to track priorities. There are, however, foods the older population can include in their diets more regularly. This includes: Eating foods that fall into these categories can accomplish a number of healthy objectives. First and foremost, leafy veggies, fresh fruits and whole grains can help to fill out meals without racking up calories. Additionally, lean proteins and moderate consumption of low-fat dairy can help seniors to maintain energy levels and provide proper amounts of nutrients, like vitamin D (for which deficiency is common).

If they’re moving to a facility, assess the food

One common issue with senior nutrition is food quality in care facilities. Seniors who move into these facilities sometimes find the food unappetizing. Fortunately, this is something the industry is aware of, and they’re working to make improvements. Today, it is not uncommon for facilities to advertise their menus and food preparations as highlights to facility living. If you’re concerned about your parents’ diets, assessing the quality of meals should still be a priority when choosing a facility. This doesn’t mean that a bad meal results in a place being crossed off the list, but you should try to ensure the food is both healthy and appetizing anywhere your parents move. If they don’t like the main offerings, they may wind up eating more snack foods or simply not eating enough.

Speak to administrators about diet plans

Another important step when choosing a senior living facility is speaking with hands-on administrators about forming and enforcing proper diet plans. This way you can work with someone who can monitor the diet and health of your parents on a day-to-day basis. In years past, people in leadership roles at senior living facilities were primarily thought of as businesspeople, but thanks to a shift in industry expectations and education, these roles have become more specialized. This specialized education helps leadership and staff collaborate with family members to manage care and relate to your parents.

Encourage exercise

Encouraging exercise sounds at first like it doesn’t relate to diet, but there’s reason to believe that motivating your parents to exercise regularly can play a role in making it easier for them to maintain proper nutrition. Natalie Butler, a corporate dietitian at Apple, explains in an article about healthy eating for seniors that many seniors get less physical activity, and as a result burn fewer calories. This reduces the need for calories, which means – in some cases – lower appetite. Regular exercise could help seniors maintain their appetites.

Encourage hydration

You should also do what you can to encourage your parents to maintain adequate hydration throughout the day. It’s well known that we actually lose some of our “thirst sensation” as we grow older; it’s part of the aging process. But this can result quite commonly in dehydration. Additionally, dehydration can be compounded by the fact that seniors tend to lose more liquid through urination. In short, the older we get, the more easily we can become dehydrated. Without proper hydration, your senior parents will digest their food less effectively, and ultimately get less out of the nutrients they’re meant to be benefiting from. Encouraging adequate water consumption is therefore a key part of this process as well. It can take a lot of effort, coordination, and perseverance to help your parents stick to healthy diet plans as they age. By educating yourself on proper nutrition, working with healthcare and living facilities, and encouraging good habits, you can help them to maintain proper nutrition and healthy lifestyles.
