Remedies for Good Gut Health | Learn more about our new Innovite products

A healthy gut is at the heart of a healthy immune system. Half of our immune system lives in the gastrointestinal tract, so it’s important to make sure we’re not allowing harmful bacteria to overgrow. Unchecked gut issues and fungal overgrowth can lead to inflammation and various health conditions, so keeping your gut in good condition is vital to overall health. In addition to a healthy diet full of whole foods, regular exercise and hydration, there are a couple of supplements you might want to keep on hand to support the gut. 

Licorice

You’ve probably seen licorice in the candy aisle at the grocery store, but that’s not what we’re talking about here. Licorice root has been used traditionally in herbal medicine for a long time, primarily for digestive issues. 

Innovite’s Licorice

  • Protects the mucous membranes and lining of our digestive tract by increasing the production of mucin

  • Can be used to soothe gastrointestinal issues, digestive upset, and inflammation of the stomach lining 

  • Protects the digestive tract against pathogens such as Candida albicans and H. pylori

  • Is formulated in a base of activated charcoal, which allows toxins to bind to it, ridding the body of unwanted substances

Caproil

Caprylic acid is a natural remedy used to rid the body of excess yeast, and it does this by breaking down the yeast’s cell membrane. Yeast overgrowth can occur in the body due to various dietary and lifestyle factors, and if left untreated can lead to unwanted inflammatory symptoms. These symptoms can include digestive and skin issues, fatigue, joint pain, and recurring infections.

Innovite’s Caproil

  • Relieves inflammatory conditions in the digestive tract

  • Breaks down the yeast’s cell membrane

  • Supports metabolism

  • Can be consumed via a broad range of applications including oil pulling, as a topical skin cleanser, for soothing rashes, or moisturizing

Psyllium + Fibregum

In order to properly and effectively rid the body of toxins, regular bowel movements are key. To achieve regularity, it’s important to consume an adequate amount of fibre. It can be difficult to get enough dietary fibre, so that’s where a supplement can come in handy.

Innovite’s Psyllium + Fibregum

  • Provides 7g of soluble and insoluble fibre per scoop

  • Promotes gentle relief of constipation and/or loose stools

  • Helps ensure blood sugar balance, healthy cholesterol, and effective detoxification

Each of these supplements have their own unique benefits for digestive health. When combined, they make a great addition to a well-rounded anti-fungal program, or a practical tool for daily digestive care. Remember – good health starts in the gut. Love your gut first, and the rest will follow.
