Here at good4thegut.com we are committed to addressing the fundamentals of optimal health. This is why we advocate changing diet and lifestyle choices to address the root cause of health at the cellular level. This means caring for the health of our mitochondria – the tiny little energy producing organelles in almost every cell of the body. Topics covered in the blog include specific food choices, when to eat, fasting and exercise information, and measures to ensure a diverse profile of bacteria species (microbiota) as well as a healthy gut lining.
We consider the vast majority of health ‘products’ to be un-necessary and of questionable value. Here at good4thegut.com, you will not be encouraged into spending your money needlessly.we only list products we consider to be absolutely essential for health, and we always inform you of thelifestyle choices that take priority. Join our newsletter for free educational information where we support you in lifestyle changes to address the foundational issues, such as the vital importance of our symbiotic relationship with the bacteria and other microrganisms that live in our bodies and in our environment.
Exciting new scientific discoveries are building new understanding of the importance of the microbiome and how its diversity supports intercellular communication. It is also now appreciated how chronic systemic inflammation underpins almost all modern chronic disease. Our environment has been increasingly polluted with toxins and antibiotics causing a severe reduction in the diverity of the average human microbiome.
The integrity of the gut lining is essential as the front line of defense of the immune system. There are chemicals in our food and environment such as the ubiquitous herbicide and antibiotic Glyphosate that destroy the integrity of the gut lining and are causal in chronic systemic inflammation for growing numbers of people. We offer the product Restore as a means of supporting overal gut health because it has been shown to produce a beneficial effect on tight junction integrity of the gut lining even in the presence of glyphosate. See the video on the ‘About Restore’ section on the LEARN tab of the main menu.
This website exists to provide you with the information and products you need to build your health by design, from the foundations of a healthy diverse microbiome and an uncompromised gut lining, because health starts in the gut.
