How To Repair Gut Lining
Is it possible to keep our intestines healthy? Ultimately, we want to know how to protect it from bacteria in order to keep our immune system strong.
Probiotics have a mission in our bodies to shield the intestinal barrier from breaking down. They also can effect on how tight of a barrier our intestinal cell wall is, and ultimately whether or not it can and will be impenetrable for bad bacteria and toxins. How effective the probiotics are in holding our intestinal cells together serves as the seal between those cell tissues that can ultimately regulate whether or not molecules can enter the bloodstream. But how is its strength determined?
Relationship Between Immune System And Inflammation
There is a strong relationship between a healthy microbiome and a healthy gut. If unhealthy, this can cause significant cell damage and inflammation. Are you doing all you can to reduce gut inflammation
It's important to sometimes go back to the fundamentals concerning the “Bugs,” or the microbiome in our gut. Now, our bodies contain thirty to fifty trillion additional cells of microorganisms living in your intestines, and though, these microorganism do not weigh a significant amount in terms of pounds, they really improve our health in numerous ways that extend far beyond this article. The primary place to begin looking at our microbiome is within the gut itself.
Recent analysis has shown that the smart microorganisms move in tandem with the thin tissue cells lining of the gut so, the ultimately the cells of the immune system fight the unhealthy microorganisms like the most common forms of food poisoning, Salmonella. Now, salmonella evokes a powerful inflammatory reaction.
How long does it take to heal a leaky gut? I guess before we answer that questions we should probably ask how leaky gut works.
In this podcast episode of The Mental Minute, I go in to a high level overview of what causes leaky gut syndrome and how to repair leaky gut. Once you get a better handle of what are the symptoms and things that cause it, you can focus on fixing your gut lining.
NOTE: Thank you so much for listening to all of these podcasts. It means the world. If I can ask one more thing, would you take a screen shot of it and share it on your social media stories to help spread the word of better gut health?
Prebiotics: The Most Important Part Of Health
Is there a food that improves probiotics? Probiotics are living things and need food, so what are the foods that probiotics need?
Today I'm going to be talking about prebiotics. Now I bet you probably thought I was going to be talking about probiotics or dietary fiber in terms of your overall gut health. But actually prebiotics are that silent partner, really the glue that I think holds all the of this together.
Essentially, what is a prebiotic? Prebiotics are just simply foods that the probiotics feed off of. The best way that I like to explain it, let's say that you have a lawn that you're trying to start, you throw down the grass seed, which are the probiotics. You have to throw down some fertilizer to get that grass growing good, green and strong.
These podcasts are an extension of me sharing what I believe is the source to be healthy emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually: a strong gut.
