Gut Health

Gut health is the foundation of health and is strongly related to immune function.

Research compellingly shows that an unhealthy gut is the primary factor driving chronic disease.

 

WHAT IS AN UNTHEALTHY GUT?  

LEAKY GUT 101:

Dysbiosis : unbalance of healthy microbes

  • Low levels of keystone strains which are pivotal to the function of microbiome and protect us from dozens of chronic illnesses.  Four of these keystone protective species include:  akkermansia muciniphila, faecalibacterium prausnitzii, bifidobacterim longum, bifidobacterium adolescentis.

  • Low diversity.  Diversity of microbes in gut gives resistance to infection, resistance to immune dysfunctions, protection against metabolic dysfunction, mitochrondrial dysfunction and age related disorders.

Low Levels of Postbiotics:

  • Postbiotics are compounds produced by microbiota that are essential to human health, such as the short chain fatty acids (SCFAs):  butyrate, propionate, and acetate.   Certain chronic conditions can be measured based on the amount of SCFAs being produced.

  • Low diversity and low levels of keystone strains equal low levels of postbiotics.

Breakdown of mucosal layer within intestines:

  • The mucosal layer is a barrier between everything coming into the intestines and the immune system/circulatory system.  

  • Dysbiosis and low levels of postbiotics begin to breakdown the mucosal layer.  

  • As the mucosal layer breaks down and microbes (good and harmful) enter into it, it triggers a disrupted mucosal immune response.

Disrupted Mucosal-Immune response:

  • Inflammatory immune responses are now activated and the immune system is chronically activated.

  • This leads to food intolerances, allergies, asthma, and significant chronic inflammatory responses throughout the body.

  • The Gut is the command center for all other mucosal tissue within the body, inflammation within the gut mucosa is translated to all or any mucosa throughout body.

 

Leaky Gut:

  • This chronic immune reaction at the inner mucosa damages the intestinal cells and the tight junctions between them begin to open.

  • This is leaky gut = gut permeability.

  • Food particles, bacteria, microbes, and LPS (lipopolysaccharides) are now allowed to leak through into circulation when they should remain in intestine. 

  • This creates significant local and systemic inflammation.  

  • This is the major source of chronic systemic inflammation.

 

CHRONIC LOW GRADE INFLAMMATION DRIVES MOST CHRONIC DISEASE

CONDITIONS ASSOCIATED WITH GUT DYSFUNCTION:

  • obesity

  • inflammatory bowel disease

  • type 2 diabetes

  • colorectal cancer

  • depression and anxiety

  • cognitive decline

  • Alzheimer's disease

  • Parkinson's disease

  • chronic pain

  • rheumatoid arthritis

  • hormonal imbalances

  • eczema and acne

  • food intolerances

  • auto-immune conditions

SOLUTIONS 
    HOW TO HEAL YOUR GUT...

  1. The diversity of plant foods in your diet is the number one indicator of a healthy gut.   Aim to eat a minimum of 30 different fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices, legumes and whole grains each week.

  2. Fiber is found only in plant foods and is fuel for the beneficial bacteria of the intestines.  Eat fiber rich foods and avoid refined grains such as white bread and pasta.

  3. Eat whole foods and avoid ultra processed food.

  4. Fermented foods.

  5. Healing foods for the gut include:  aloe vera, slippery elm, marshmallow root, DGL licorice, chia seeds, L-glutamine powder.

  6. Limit or avoid saturated fat and animal products.  Animal protein is metabolized by gut microbes into toxic compounds such as TMAO and excess LPS.

  7. Eat in a calm state to allow proper digestion.

  8. Movement and exercise.

  9. Intelligent supplementation.

INTELLIGENT SUPPLEMENTATION

MicroBiome Labs is a cutting edge company, leading the way in science backed, clinically studied products that help to restore gut function.

MegaSporeBiotic: 

  • A spore-based probiotic, that survives digestion and is shelf stable for up to 5 years.​

  • Clinically proven to reduce leaky gut by up to 60% in only 30 days and to increase microbial diversity.

  • The spores are able to quorum sense:  once in the gut they detect pathogenic bacteria, crowd them out and create their own natural antibiotics to kill them off.

  • Encourages the growth of keystone health-promoting beneficial bacteria.

  • Begin the process of healing the gut mucosal layer where immune signaling and sampling takes place.

MegaPre:

  • Prebiotics reinforce the beneficial changes created by probiotics.

  • The first prebiotic supplement made up of clinically-tested, non-digestible oligosaccharides that can increase microbial diversity and selectively feed beneficial bacteria like Akkermansia muciniphila, Faecalibacterium prausnitzii, and Bifidobacteria.

MegaMucosa:

  • Mucosa support supplement formulated to REBUILD a healthy mucosal barrier.

  • Supports a healthy immune system in the mucosa.

  • Contains amino acid building blocks, dairy-free immunoglobulins that blind free-hfloating toxins in the gut and citrus polyphenols.

  • Supports microbial diversity and short chain fatty acid production.

  • Alleviates leaky gut.
