What does my gut health have to do with my brain?

Posted on : March 05, 2015 by Hardy Nutritionals® No Comments

The simple answer is everything!

You've heard the saying "you are what you eat". In reality, "You are what you absorb". A variety of gut problems can interfere with the absorption of nutrients and limit their effectiveness. If your body isn't absorbing the essential nutrients that you need, many aspects of your health will suffer, including your mental health. So, even if you are eating lots of good, well-selected food and supplementing with vitamins & minerals, you might not be getting the full benefit from your daily nutrient intake.

Gut health is a critical issue for individuals taking Daily Essential Nutrients to address their mood and anxiety-related disorders. If Daily Essential Nutrients doesn't seem to be working, it's not because the essential ingredients aren't good for your health, it's likely that you're simply not absorbing the nutrients. Poor gut health may be standing in the way of enhanced mental stability. Because getting our gut healthy is such a big deal for so many people, we've formulated specific products to help with this.

  1. Hardy Nutritionals® Greens & Probiotics - We recommend this product for everyone, but it's especially important for those with bowel issues. Greens & Probiotics contains a fantastic blend of beneficial bacteria together with plenty of nutrient-rich superfoods that the bacteria thrive on. In addition to these superfoods, Greens & Probiotics contains enzymes and other ingredients designed to create an ideal environment for the good bacteria, which promote healing and optimal digestive function. Check out this other NutraTalk Blog article to read a detailed explanation of the benefits of Greens & Probiotics, ingredient by ingredient.
  2. Hardy Nutritionals® Olive Leaf Extract - This is a powerful all-natural product that is designed to combat Candida and other yeast species in your gut and promote healthy bowel function. Yeast overgrowth prevents Daily Essential Nutrients from working by robbing you of the nutrients you need. That's why we've created a 'Microflora Imbalance Questionnaire' that can help you identify the symptoms and risk factors of yeast overgrowth.
