Gut health=unstoppable health! That’s why today, I’m going to let you in on a simple thing you can eat every day to support your amazing gut.
In case you’re wondering why I focus on the gut so much, it’s because that’s the common culprit to virtually every symptom! You can’t be healthy and free of symptoms if your gut isn’t functioning properly. Your gut is where you take all the good stuff you eat and drink and transform it into the many building blocks your body needs to make energy, sleep well, maintain a healthy weight, build muscle, and clear out toxins that need clearing out daily so you can thrive.
I care about all of these things because my passion is to work with people like you whose health symptoms–like gut/digestive issues, excess weight, low energy, and skin & sleep problems–are getting in the way of you living life fully and with a sense of freedom in your body. I help you to regain your health so you can feel great and free to enjoy life fully.
A healthy veggie sugar?
This just in: your gut needs greens!
Researchers from Melbourne and the UK have identified a previously unknown enzyme (called YihQ), which is used by your gut bacteria to absorb and metabolize sulfur-containing sugars called sulfoquinovose(SQ for short). SQ is produced by all green plants to facilitate photosynthesis. The greener the plant, the more SQ it contains.
Your good gut bugs use this SQ to THRIVE, aid in digestion and block overgrowth of bad bacteria. Until this enzyme was discovered, we didn’t know humans could digest this SQ sugar! Very exciting!
