Replenish Nutrients in
Your Gut and
Restore Your Gut Health
Good gut health can keep you lean, healthy, and energetic. Think of your digestive tract as a tube. Ideally, the lining of that tube keeps everything you swallow intact until it gets properly broken down or digested. The gut barrier also decides what gets through that wall.
A healthy gut keeps dangerous things intact while allowing nutrients to move through the wall.
However, the lining of your gut can erode or wear away; this is called “leaky gut.” When this happens, bad things that shouldn’t get through the wall do. Your immune system kicks in to fight these foreign invaders, creating inflammation.
Inflammation isn’t bad. Inflammation is your body’s natural immune response, which fights off foreign invaders, heals injuries, and keeps you healthy. But when your immune system stays in overdrive because of gut problems, so does inflammation, which can contribute to numerous diseases.
About 70 percent of the immune system is housed in the gut and it absorbs nutrients that support the body’s functions, which means maintaining a healthy gut is important. These MaxLiving supplements may be helpful tools for maintaining good gut health and longevity.
While many people suffer from digestive issues, oftentimes these issues are misdiagnosed. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) can often be a “catch-all” for digestive discomfort. Prescription medications and over-the-counter antacids help symptoms but not necessarily the cause of digestive discomfort. Antacids can also interfere with nutrient absorption and create side effects including diarrhea.
The MaxLiving Gut Health Bundles are your source of essential nutrients and additional nutrient support to help keep you at your best, maintain optimal function, feeling, and gut health. MaxLiving natural supplements may help you achieve optimum gut health for maintaining a healthy lifestyle.†
The Core and Advanced bundles also include a downloadable copy of the MaxLiving Gut Health Recipe Book. This book contains 12 delicious, gut-supporting recipes! A healthy gut requires an abundance of good gut bacteria, known as probiotics. Many common fermented foods, such as sauerkraut and kimchi, contain probiotics. This recipe book incorporates these foods in easy-to-make recipes for a healthy, balanced gut everyday!
Your gut contains over 400 strains of bacteria.(1) This community of microorganisms that live in your gut is called your gut microbiota. The health of your gut has a significant impact on your overall health and wellness.(2)
Humans need a diversity of gut bacteria to help them digest and absorb nutrients, regulate their metabolism, and build the immune system.(3,4,5) Certain gut microbes play a role in brain development and function.(6) Your healthy gut bacteria also fight pathogens and reduce inflammation.(5) Maintaining a balance and diversity of healthy gut bacteria is essential for preventing numerous inflammatory diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers.(2,5,7)
Use these natural strategies to improve your gut health and balance your gut microbiota.
