Gut Healing Supplements can be an Important Part of Your Recovery.

It’s no secret that supporting optimal gut health often involves the use of supplements.

Using supplements to support gut health can be an essential step to ensure proper digestion and absorption of nutrients, heal the gut lining, and promote a healthier balance of good bacteria in our gut while crowding out the bad bacteria.

Several lifestyle choices, such as eating a diet that eliminates your food sensitivities, exercising regularly, staying hydrated, reducing stress, should be an important part of your gut healing plan.

Supplements, on the other hand, are just that; they supplement your gut health while keeping in mind the focus of healing the gut should be on the whole picture of your overall health. We’re not just jumping to supplements hoping that will fix everything for you.

The health of the gut can be gently supported with the right supplemental protocol that’s targeted and tailored to you and your specific imbalances.

If you’re interested in an individualized gut healing plan, then get started with your complimentary consult with me now.

Otherwise, read on to learn about my top recommended gut health supplements, including popular brands from my dispensary.

My Top Favorite Gut Healing Supplements + Exact Brands

Probiotics

Probiotics are fermented food products or dietary supplements that contain beneficial microbes, including bacteria, bacterial spores, or yeasts.

When consumed, they offer health benefits to the host, both by colonizing the G.I. (gastrointestinal) tract when passing through the body.

Probiotics have been studied for their therapeutic benefits in a number of health conditions, including inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), autoimmune diseases, obesity, and anxiety & depression.

The health benefits of probiotics can vary significantly depending on the specific strains included. Read more about how to choose the best probiotic supplements here.

Digestive enzymes

Digestive enzymes are secreted by the digestive tract to aid in digesting fats, proteins, and carbohydrates consumed through the diet.

Enzyme supplementation may be beneficial for individuals with food sensitivities, those with food intolerances, and supporting other gastrointestinal disorders.

Enzyme supplements may include a variety of enzymes from different sources such as pancreatic enzymes (e.g., porcine or bovine sources), plant-based enzymes (e.g., bromelain from pineapple, papain from papaya), and microbe-derived enzymes.

Each enzyme breaks down a specific component of food. For example, lipase aids in the digestion of fats and protease aids in the digestion of proteins.

Prebiotics are a type of soluble fiber that possess unique health effects on our gut bacteria.

They act as a source of fuel for beneficial microbes, promoting a healthy microbial profile, and providing a number of additional health benefits. Research is increasingly confirming the numerous health benefits of prebiotics.

L-glutamine

L-glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the human body. The small and large intestines use L-glutamine as a material for energy production and it plays a role in the health of the liver which is important for digestion and detoxifying.

It can reduce intestinal cell death that normally occurs with exposure to stress, such as intense heat and exercise. It may also benefit individuals with certain digestive conditions such as Crohn’s disease and short bowel syndrome.

Research has shown that the health benefits of L-glutamine may be attributed to its ability to reduce inflammation, protect against cell death, and regulate the repair of gut cells.

Deglycyrrhizinated licorice

Licorice is a medicinal herb grown in parts of Greece, Turkey, and Asia.

The plant’s roots have an antimicrobial, soothing, antioxidant, and liver-protecting properties. An extract of licorice root known as deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL) is used in the treatment of inflammatory bowel diseases, peptic ulcers, and gastric ulcers.

DGL supplementation may also help improve symptoms of indigestion, such as heartburn, belching, bloating, and nausea. Clinical studies have found DGL supplements to be safe and well-tolerated.
