DIGESTIVE WARRIORS TO THE RESCUE!
Ooh the days of feasting are upon us! Chinese New Year reunion dinners… the endless rounds of snacking… steamboats… catering… I can now hear waistbands groaning everywhere.
Here’s what I get really diligent on during the days of CNY feasting:
1. To keep things flowing and reduce bloat and gas, I take Digest + Cleanse with each meal. Bonus? Smoother bowel movements and GOING regularly after meals make me feel less guilty about those pineapple tarts and bak kwa.
2. Enzymes! I tend to rotate between Essentialzymes and Essentialzymes4. As we age, we have lesser enyzmes in the digestive system. Feeling icky after you ate that piece of bread or drink that milky coffee? In our modern day lives, processed food seems to be hard to avoid and this is where you need enzymes in your tum to help you BREAK IT DOWN.
Here’s a great video by Dr Lindsey Elmore where she cover the 5 different enzyme supplements in YL – Essentialzymes, Essentialzymes4, Allerzyme, Detoxzyme and Kidscent Mightyzymes: https://youtu.be/8zzZxgsuEG0
3. Life 9 – YL’s probiotics. Among its 9 strains of good bacteria to crowd out the bad in our digestive system, it also contains HOWARU strains which are considered the best SUPER CHARGED STRAINS of bacteria that are produced. They have been clinically designed and tested to withstand the harsh and acid conditions of the digestive system and colonize in the bowel.
And today is the last day to get your free Tea Tree 5 ml eo when you order your Life 9 on Essential Rewards. So go go go!
I also want to wrap up this post with this excerpt from Natural Health Online. It sums it up perfectly for me why I’m MORE diligent now on taking my digestive supplements and I hope you consider adding them to yours and your family daily regime too:
Did you know that 80% of your immune system is in your gut? This means that if you take proper care of your gut, then your immune responses will be strong and healthy. It isn’t just about physical diseases either, as mental health is surprisingly largely tied to your gut health as well. Around 90% of neutrotransmitters – the chemicals that regulate your mood such as serotonin, dopamine and acetylcholine – are actually formed in your gut. If you have severe anxiety and depression, you may want to pay attention.
When your gastrointestinal (GI) tract is unhealthy, you may experience direct physical symptoms such as gas, pain, bloating, diarrhea and constipation. However, these are just beginning symptoms and may actually be the root of more serious chronic illnesses. Many autoimmune diseases have been linked to imbalance in the gut. Additionally, hormone imbalances also trace their roots to gut health.
