While all of the organs within our body are valued, the GI tract is perhaps the most important – it is said that the gut is the gateway to total health. It is in the GI tract that vital nutrients gets distributed throughout the body, and it is in the GI tract that the food we eat gets broken down and sent on the journey to excretion. Without a healthy gut, internal hell can break loss – toxins can begin to grow, immunity can weaken and bathroom visits can be a very unpleasant experience.
Digestive issues has become as common as the common cold, while it is totally natural to experience sporadic flatulence and passing pressure soon after eating, it is totally unnatural to experience reflux, constipation, diarrhea, excess gas, inflammation and other symptoms of reoccurring gut distress. Experiencing such symptoms usually means that the flora in the gut is unbalanced.
There are many reasons why the gut can go crazy, however, stress, poor diet, autoimmune disorders and synthetic medications are among the top reasons. However, Correcting an unhappy gut can be as simple as making a few lifestyle changes.
A few weeks ago I was introduced to an all natural digestive supplement called Gutsy Chewy. I was excited to review this supplement because of its natural formula – it contains apple cider vinegar, licorice root, xylitol, papain and calcium. All of the ingredients in Gutsy Chewy are valued gut remedies in the world of alternative health. The properties within apple cider vinegar and licorice root, xylitol and papain can calm inflammation while encouraging healthy bacteria to grow and allowing digestion and excretion to flow smoothly.
The supplements come in naturally flavored chews that are gluten and lactose free and also vegan friendly. They taste great and dissolve easily. I used to suffer from IBS as a symptom of hypothyroidism, however I have managed to keep it under control by changing my diet, stressing less and taking a shot of apple cider vinegar in the morning and at night, Gutsy Chewy will allow me to aid my gut when I’m on the go. I throw the convenient tube in my purse and chew on one whenever I get that queasy, uneasy, refluxy feeling. I love the natural formula and the pleasant taste and I highly recommend.
Gutsy Chewy was created by gastroenterologist and dentist, Dr. Doug Haghighi. They are made in the USA and are available in wildberry and citrus flavors. Visit them on their website for more information and be sure to follow them on facebook and twitter.
