Is Your Gut Happy?

 Signs of an unhealthy gut:


1. Upset stomach
Gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, and heartburn can all be signs of an unhealthy gut. A balanced gut will have less difficulty processing food and eliminating waste.

2. A high-sugar diet
A diet high in processed foods and added sugars can decrease the number of good bacteria in your gut. This imbalance can cause increased sugar cravings, which can damage your gut still further. 

3. Unintentional weight changes
Gaining or losing weight without making changes to your diet or exercise habits may be a sign of an unhealthy gut. An imbalanced gut can impair your body’s ability to absorb nutrients, regulate blood sugar, and store fat.

4. Sleep disturbances / constant fatigue
An unhealthy gut may contribute to sleep disturbances such as insomnia or poor sleep, and therefore lead to chronic fatigue. The majority of the body’s serotonin, a hormone that affects mood and sleep, is produced in the gut. 

Things to do for better gut health:

1. Add a probiotic 

Probiotics promote a healthy balance of gut bacteria and have been linked to a wide range of health benefits. AQ REJUVENATE Collagen Protein is formulated with a probiotic to keep your gut healthy.

Stay Hydrated
Drinking plenty of water has been shown to have a beneficial effect on the mucosal lining of the intestines, as well as on the balance of good bacteria in the gut. Drinking
Age Quencher is a perfect way to stay hydrated while replenishing electrolytes.

3. Lower your stress levels
High levels of stress are hard on your whole body, including your gut. Seven to eight hours of high-quality sleep a night is recommended to support your gut health. Maintaining a regular sleep schedule and avoiding blue light exposure before bed is also important.
