New Year, New Gut?

New Year, New Gut?

Gone is the season of over indulgence. As much fun as it was eating rich chocolates and drinking fine wine, we have to stop and think about what impact it has on our health. There is no better time than January to jump on a health kick.

 

Why do we need to look after our stomach health?

 

Well, it actually impacts a heap of other aspects in our body, both internally and externally. If the ‘good’ bacteria is missing from our stomach, our body will let us know in the form of perhaps low energy levels, a change in mood, and problematic skin.

 

Prebiotics vs Probiotics

 

Probiotics are the ‘good’ bacteria found in our digestive system that help restore the natural balance of bacteria in your stomach where it has been disrupted.

 

Prebiotics are a type of food ingredients that probiotics feed off they can also be found in the gut to help increase healthy bacteria, healthy digestion, and production of vitamins.

 

WelleCo’s Nourishing Plant Protein contains both of these types of bacteria. A large part of the immune system is located around the bowel, probiotics are essential for the regulation of our immune systems, so helping us prevent those colds, infections and coughs. Did we mention that it is available in a chocolate flavour? We can’t think of a sweeter way to look after our guts health.

The combination of pea and rice protein provides all 9 essential amino acids. A good daily serve of protein is essential for tissue repair and growth. Digestive enzymes boost metabolism for a lean body. Whether you’re partaking in ‘Veganuary’ or not this month, WelleCo’s Nourishing Plant Protein is completely plant-based and free from artificial sweeteners.

 

 

You are what you eat

 

This popularly coined term is not far from the truth, as we previously mentioned an indulgent diet will show in some form on our bodies. Therefore what we choose to eat is also a significant factor to consider when it comes to having and maintaining a healthy gut.

 

Eating your greens goes without saying, even though you may have eaten your sprouts during the Christmas period you probably ate foods that when combined, have a not so great impact on your guts health.

 

For example, food combinations like meats and fruits may taste amazing, but they don’t digest well together. Why? It is because one food group may take longer than the other to digest. This can cause the fruit to ferment in the gut, but you can reverse the effects that the ‘bad’ acid has on your gut by adding WelleCo’s Super Elixir to your diet. Just add 2 teaspoons of it to water, a smoothie/shake, or a green juice of your choice.

Just remember to drink it immediately, as opposed to leaving it for an hour. We don’t want our bodies to miss out on absorbing the elixir’s ingredients properly. Also, if you’re a coffee connoisseur, we suggest drinking your elixir infused drink an hour before or after you get your coffee fix.
