Gastro-Intestinal Health

A healthy digestive system is essential for a healthy body.  Many practitioners believe that a healthy gastrointestinal (GI) tract is the basis for overall good health, and studies show a direct link between GI health and immune responses.  More than half of our immune system is located in the intestinal tact!  When our intestinal environment is altered it leads to symptoms and health problems.  It is not normal to feel bloated and gassy after meals, to feel tired or have heartburn after eating, to have difficult bowel movements or chronic constipation.

The gut and its functions are so important and affects all other body systems.  Nutrient absorption, detoxification, first line defense with a friendly bacteria barrier, elimination of internally produced toxins and even hormone metabolism is affected by the health of our GI tract.  Fortunately, targeted nutritional support combined with a specialized diet can effectively promote a healthy GI environment and overall health.

Be proactive in protecting the health of your gut to reduce the chance of future diseases and conditions.  Make some lifestyle changes and improve your diet, become more active and manage stress.  Try some of the supplements below or our 28 -Day Cleanse.
