Why You Need A Healthy Gut

Share This Post

Keeping your gut healthy is part of raising your immunity.  It is critical to understand your current gut platform otherwise referred to as your microbiome, the foods your gut thrives on and those foods that it does not.

It is now more than ever critical for all adults and children too to get their routine blood work and determine if they have a healthy non-compromised gut.  Getting a baseline and taking a few critical surveys on metabolism and gut help to define the critical nutritional support a patient needs.  Did you know that your microbiome can regenerate through foods that have ketones in them such as:

• Butyrate

• Acetate

• Propionate

If you can increase these ketones you actually decrease the inflammation in the brain and gut and regenerate and restore your microbiome naturally, even without probiotics! The study below is clinical evidence of what COVID-19 does to the gut.  Other studies are referenced on these ketones as playing a significant role in microbiome.

Studies have identified the SARS-CoV-2 RNA in stool specimens of infected patients, and its viral receptor angiotensin converting enzyme 2 was found to be highly expressed in gastrointestinal epithelial cells. These suggest that SARS-CoV-2 can actively infect and replicate in the gastrointestinal tract. This has important implications to the disease management, transmission, and infection control. In this article, we review the important gastrointestinal aspects of the disease.
