Gut Health

Improve Your Gut Health

What we eat affects how we feel.

Your body is designed to break down your food, grab key nutrients and pass any excess out of the body.

Through the use of enzymes in your mouth and a healthy balance of microbiome in your gut, the body is able to break down food that has been chewed and swallowed.

Many choose to suffer through gut issues without making an effort to completely eliminate them.

Some studies show as many as 74% of Americans are living with gut issues.

These include:

  • Bloating
  • Gas
  • Diarrhea
  • Abdominal pain

GI distress may lead to using the bathroom more than normal, irritation in the bowels or urgency to go when there is nothing to express.

When the gut isn’t processing correctly, the body isn’t getting the nutrients it needs.

GI issues can lead to other serious effects on the mind and body.
Peptides are a key solution in improving gut health naturally—supporting fast healing and better digestion.

The peptide BPC-157 was fashioned after peptides found in the gut and promotes localized healing.

When swallowed as an oral therapy solution, it has a localized effect on gut health.

Gut Health and the Brain

There is a connection between the health of your gut and the wellness of your mind.

Not only can your mind impact your gut, but your gut can directly affect your line of thinking.

According to Harvard Medical School:

The brain has a direct effect on the stomach and intestines. For example, the very thought of eating can release the stomach’s juices before food gets there. This connection goes both ways. A troubled intestine can send signals to the brain, just as a troubled brain can send signals to the gut. Therefore, a person’s stomach or intestinal distress can be the cause or the product of anxiety, stress, or depression. That’s because the brain and the gastrointestinal (GI) system are intimately connected.

Consider how nerves can make you feel sick to your stomach.

Betrayal is often described as “a punch to the gut” and anguish is called “gut wrenching.”

Not only can intense situations and feelings cause gut issues, but gut issues can lead to:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Moodiness
  • Irritability
  • Lack of focus

This can become a vicious cycle, since those emotional experiences will in turn affect the gut.

If the cycle is not stopped, the unhealthy gut can lead to additional health problems.

GERD: Also known as heartburn, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is caused by backed up stomach acid that leads to chest pain, sore throat, dry cough and issues with swallowing.

Ignoring GERD can lead to a severely damaged esophagus.

IBS: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBS) is when part of the digestive tract is swollen and chronically impaired.

This leads to abdominal pain and diarrhea, sometimes including other symptoms, such as partial constipation, lost appetite, rectal bleeding and night sweats. Untreated IBS can further damage the GI tract.

Food intolerance: Allergies and intolerances can cause damage to the body.

While allergies are typically linked to problems with skin and respiratory, food intolerance impacts digestion.

Vomiting, diarrhea, headaches, heartburn, gas and bloating are all signs of food intolerance, especially when connected to a specific food group or ingredient.

Dairy and gluten are among the most common foods that aren’t tolerated well by some people.

The gut needs to be healed and the problematic food intake stopped or severe damage will occur in the intestines.

Chronic constipation: When the body can’t completely rid itself of wastes, abdominal pain and bloating may occur.

One of the most common GI problems in the US is chronic constipation.
Increasing water, fiber intake and exercise are helpful methods for reducing the likelihood of constipation.

Chronic constipation can lead to GI damage, which would require treatment for healing.

Emergency GI issues: If you are noticing bloody stools, sweating, cramping, vomiting and sudden weight loss for unknown reasons, seek medical help for testing and diagnostics immediately.

This could be signs of something, like an infection, gallstones, cancer or hepatitis. While peptides could still be an important part of the recovery process, you need to know exactly what is going on and get a treatment plan in place.

Peptide therapy is not meant to replace treatments your doctor has prescribed.

The science is promising, but new.

While the FDA has approved specific peptides for gut-healing therapy, there is not enough research to show how it could replace other treatments.

The best use of peptides is in conjunction with any other treatments—naturally supporting the body’s healing as you take conventional medications to fight infection, reduce inflammation, stop reactions and more.

You should also change your diet and lifestyle to support a healthy gut so that peptides can have the most impact possible in your recovery.
