    It's All in Your Gut! How to Enhance Mood, Immunity and More Through Digestion


    • Probiotics and Prebiotics: These are two of the most important supplements you can take to help restore healthy digestion. Probiotics provide live strains of friendly bacteria that are crucial for digestive, immune and neurological health, and prebiotics ensure that your friendly flora are provided with a nourishing environment in which they can thrive.

    • Zinc: An important nutrient for digestive health, which also plays critical roles in hormone regulation, immune health and neurological function.

    • Chinese Cardamom: Offers numerous benefits for digestion, increases antioxidant levels and boosts immunity. Also helps to combat unhealthy cellular growth and balance hormones with the compound Indole-3 Carbinole.

    • Cinnamon: Soothes digestive discomfort, improves digestive capacity, boosts immunity and balances blood sugar.

    • Ginger Root: Improves digestion, reduces inflammation, purifies GI tract, increases antioxidant levels and boosts immunity.

    • Fish Oils: Reduce inflammation and help heal GI tract lining, improve nutrient absorption, balance hormones, improve neurological function and boost immunity.

    • Protolytic Enzymes: Increase digestive capacity and nutrient absorption, boost immunity and increase vital energy.

    • Include an abundance of fiber in your diet from fresh fruits, vegetables and whole, unprocessed grains

    • Avoid processed foods, commercial meats and trans-fats (unhealthy fats)

    • Test for food allergies and sensitivities with your doctor

    • Refrain from eating two to three hours before bedtime

    • Drink plenty of filtered water and herbal teas for proper hydration

    • Find healthy ways to relieve stress such as meditation, exercise and laughter

    • Practice yoga for improving digestive function and reducing stress

    • Limit your use of over-the-counter and prescription drugs

    • Limit caffeine and alcohol, which damage friendly bacteria

    Psalms 118:26 Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD: we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD.

    I use the KJV Bible, unless otherwise noted.
