I always get asked if I had to choose one supplement what would it be?
I can honestly say gut health is the first thing we need to get right otherwise even the best of diets will not be as effective unless we address this issue first & foremost. Research is also linking poor gut health to anxiety & depression so just one more reason to take a quality probiotic.
Second to this mineral deficiency needs to be addressed.
Minerals are essential to help develop muscle and are crucial in regulating metabolic processes such as those that turn food into energy. Minerals like selenium in particular are hard to get unless you are eating truckloads of brazil nuts.
So what type of Minerals & Probiotic?
Firstly go for a Probiotic that has Prebiotic fibres in it
Prebiotics is another name for fibre and in particular, fibre that feeds probiotic (good) bacteria.
Combinations of probiotics and prebiotics are called “synbiotics” because of the synergy that occurs as the prebiotics feed the probiotics and cause them to multiply to higher levels in the gastrointestinal tract.
To put this in real laymen’s terms prebiotics will help increase and restore good gut bacteria faster, which is ideally what you want for fat loss & overall health.
The Modere probiotic has prebiotic in it & because there is not enough room in a capsule to fit an efficacious dose of prebiotics in it, it is taken in a powder form dissolved in water & away from meals every second day.
Seriously this product will rock your world when taken regularly. Available HERE.
You can also learn more about the subject of Synbiotics by looking at some of the works of microbiologist and scientist of 35 years, John Ellerman. John has specialised in the field of probiotics for 25 years.
Regarding minerals, plant derived minerals or colloidal minerals are proving to be the most favorable.
These type of minerals as they are better absorbed into the body and provide a simple and effective way to make sure our bodies get the minerals we need daily so we can function optimally.
Research also suggests farming methods are depleting natural resources of minerals, meaning that the food we eat may not be as mineral rich as our body needs. We simply don’t have the minerals in the soils anymore so as a result we need to supplement & research is also showing selenium in particular is an anti-cancer mineral that most people are not getting enough of in their diet.
We need a simple, easy solution daily to make sure our bodies mineral needs are being meet.
The Modere Natural Mineral Drink is my go to & is available HERE.
I know many of you are doing the detox at the moment so I encourage you to stay on these 2 products when complete. Ideally my Healthy Body Foundation Pack is awesome as it has the probiotics & minerals plus other goodies for balancing hormones.
Have a lovely evening Shredders.
