I am so excited about the new 4 Week Gut Protocol that will be launching in March! If you're like me, you've been seeing a lot of "gut health" talk on social media, and as I've learned more about what this is I'm pumped to share this new program with you and a little bit of 411 about why gut health actually matters! What we eat REALLY matters!
Did you know that the bacteria in your gut plays an important role in your physical and emotional well-being? As I’ve started diving into this program, I’m learning so much and recent research has show that improving the health of your gut and reducing bacteria may help improve all the stuff we struggle most with:
Irregular bowel movements
Poor sleep quality
The appearance of your skin
Reduce inflammation in your body
I mean, if taking a 4 week challenge can help eliminate just a few of these issues for me, I AM IN! How about you?!
So if you’ve been meaning to get the lowdown on why gut health is so important, and how you can use this upcoming program, The 4 Week Gut Protocol, to feel great again, then keep on reading to get all the deets!!
Why is Gut Health Important?
What is most commonly referred to as “the gut” is really the Gastrointestinal (GI) Tract - an organ that includes both the stomach as well as your intestines.
WAIT, time out! I know, I know this all sounds like health class but stick with me here... It will be worth it! Okay, let’s continue…
The GI tract is responsible for taking in food and transporting it from the mouth and into the stomach, digesting it in order to extract and absorb the energy and nutrients found within, and removing the resulting waste from the body. You can see how important this is for the overall health of your body: you need this energy from food in order to function properly, if at all.
But the reason that gut health has been getting so much media coverage lately is that there seems to be much, much more to the picture than originally thought.
Here’s the deal: research is beginning to reveal that the gut could impact aspects of your health that seem to have nothing at all to do with your digestion, such as the function of your immune system, your brain and heart health, your weight, your mood, your skin, your sleep quality, and potentially even more. Just check out this infographic from the United European Gastroenterology Organization!
This right here, is why there is soooo much buzz lately about gut health!
We now know that what we eat, the amount of stress we experience, how much sleep we get, etc., all contributes to either us having a really healthy gut, or the opposite. And if we have the opposite, and we’re experiencing less than desired health issues or body concerns, it MAY be connected to your gut.
There’s a lot to learn here when it comes to our gut, brain, and how it affects our overall health. This is why Beachbody & Autumn Calabrese, has taken all of this confusing information, and created The 4 Week Gut Protocol specifically to help all of us understand our gut, improve the health of it, and possibly by connection, improve other conditions that plague us.
