Over the weekend, I read up on a medical study that really blew my mind.
I’m sharing it with you today because it’s information I feel will bring immediate benefits into your life.
And it deals with something you probably worry about every day but will help you understand it in a new way:
You see, more than 80 percent of your body’s immunity is located in your gut.
For it to be healthy, it’s good to make sure your gut has a well-balanced variety of good bacteria.
This is important because good bacteria work to strengthen the lining of your gut.
Now, when you’re lacking enough good gut bugs, your body’s immune system works to fight off the effects of the bad gut bugs — causing inflammation. (1)
Bothersome acne and other skin related blemishes are all the direct result of inflammation.
So, what can you do to keep inflammation from disrupting the way you look?
Luckily there are a few really easy, natural gut health fixes that are great for you.
#1 – For starters, as I mentioned above, eating a wide variety of well-balanced foods can make a big difference. Make sure you’re getting plenty of green, orange, purple and red fruits & veggies in your diet.
#2 – Another key tip is to avoid sugary, processed foods. These do nothing to support a healthy gut flora…and often make things even worse. (2)
#3 – And the third piece of advice: make sure you include a high-grade probiotic into your daily routine – it’s something I’ve been doing for years.
Especially one that includes the Lactobacillus casei and Lactobacillus plantarum strains.
Research has shown that these strains, in particular, have the ability to regulate the kind of inflammation that can ruin your skin. (3)
Hopefully, these tips help take some of the guesswork out of finding the gut and skin health you’ve been searching for.
We want you to look and feel your best all year long and with the right balance of foods and a powerful probiotic supplement, you will be will on your way!
