The Merits of Magnesium

The Merits of Magnesium

1 day ago

Having trouble sleeping? Struggling to switch off? 

You may be deficient in magnesium. Today, so many people are magnesium deficient. Common conditions such as stress, cardiovascular disease and diabetes increase the body’s demand for magnesium. This increased requirement is often not met due to reduced dietary intake of magnesium-rich foods, poor soil quality and malabsorption issues. Also, with the increased processing of foods in the Western world and the refinement of grains, foods are now containing significantly less magnesium than they did a hundred years ago.

8 Tips for Constipation

15 days ago

Constipation is defined as 3 or fewer bowel movements weekly, though truly we should be emptying our bowels AT LEAST once every day.

Many people don’t realize that you can poop and still be constipated if the bowels are not emptying completely. 

Although constipation is one of the most common digestive problems affecting 1 out of every 6 people, it should NOT be taken lightly.

Our bowels are designed to eliminate toxins and waste. When things get backed up, toxins are reabsorbed into the bloodstream and waste putrefies in the colon, feeding pathogenic bacteria and fueling inflammation.

Exercise and the Gut

Exercise and the Gut

August 13 2020

You would have heard the phrase “you are what you eat” and there’s no denying its truth. However, the phrase “you are what you do” also rings true. And no, I’m not talking about your career. I’m talking about the physical activity you do on a regular basis. Having a healthy gut is so much more than just what you are eating or not eating, it’s a whole way of living that moulds and shapes your microbiome. 

What's The Deal With Leaky Gut?

What's The Deal With Leaky Gut?

August 12 2020

Leaky gut, technically known as intestinal hyperpermeability, is essentially where your intestinal lining is porous. This intestinal lining is extensive, covering more than 4,000 square feet of surface area. Along this intestinal tract, we have many microvilli, which are finger-like hairs that increase the area of absorption in our gut and help to absorb our nutrients and eliminate waste. If the intestinal wall is damaged and “leaky,” this allows things like waste products and toxins, food proteins, bacteria and other compounds to seep through the membranes and enter the blood stream.
