For most of us, thinking about our digestive system and how it all works never really occurs to us. I mean you put food in, it goes through the churn and out it comes, right? The sad thing is we will never really understand the beauty of the digestive system and how intricate, finely tuned and fascinating it is.
What most people don’t know is that your gut affects just about everything in your body. If you consider that your digestive system starts with your mouth, salivary glands, down to the stomach, intestines, colon, liver, gall bladder and pancreas, you have a wide area to focus on. Think of it like the engine of a car. You get great performance out of a car that is regularly serviced, well-oiled and parts that are intact. If one aspect of an engine starts faltering the entire car’s performance is affected. The last thing you would want is a cracked engine block, blown gasket or leaking valves. So why not consider your gut with the same thought process?
So what does the digestive system actually do? Not only does your digestive system process all your food, it literally takes out everything it needs for your body in terms of energy. Then it also produces antibodies (good guys fighting the bad guys) against foreign material such as bacteria causing infection and provides a barrier function to bacteria and toxins in the intestine. It also assists in chemical detoxification. Now can you imagine what could NOT be happening if your digestive system has a glitch in it?
Your intestines and your immunity go hand in glove and if you really think about it most illnesses known to man would be as a result of a poorly functioning digestive system. So I have to ask, would it not be in our best interest to protect this valuable area in our body so that we can all work at optimal health levels?
How do you know if you have an unhealthy gut? Some signs you should be taking note of are, lack of energy due to undigested food, decreased immunity leading to frequent illnesses such as regular bouts of cold and flu, food allergies, constipation, irritable bowel or spastic colon, malnourishment and increased risk to diseases such as fibromyalgia, arthritis and even sinusitis.
The point is if you are going to protect your gut by taking a probiotic supplement, make sure it is one that works in all areas of the gut so that every part is covered. With its award winning double strains of good guy bacteria, entiro™ provides entire gut lining, binding and protecting from top to bottom. Makes sense to keep your gut working like a high performance sports car rather than a chuggy classic car because let’s face it, no one has time for fun spoiling gut issues!
