70% of our immune system is located in our gut, so let’s start there. You already know you need a diet high in leafy greens and brassicas for good gut health. To help them out, the Gutsy powder uses natural silica to help clear your digestive tract of a build-up of mucus, faecal matter, bad bacteria, fungi and heavy metals by absorbing these things on their way out.
In addition to scraping all that junk out of your gut, silica has many other benefits:
• Healthier looking skin, hair, and nails.
• Improves functionality of the liver and colon
• Increases nutrient and mineral absorption and hydration levels
• Reduces gas and bloating
• Helps improve energy levels
• Promotes regular bowel movements.
Try taking Gutsy 10 days on and 10 days off for 3 months to safely and efficiently detox. Initially, as your gut environment changes you may notice some mild side effects, like headaches, as your gut environment changes. Yeast can die off and your body releases the toxins. You will generally feel better, especially when those heavy metals are removed from the body, freeing up your immune system to work on other issues.
As the body has improved nutrient absorption, we recommend taking a probiotic too, to supplement the good bacteria in the gut. Gutsy is a food, not a medication, therefore perfectly safe to consume for the general population.
WHAT’S IN IT AND WHAT DOES IT DO
Diatomaceous Earth is a powder made from the deposit of fossilised aquatic organisms found in water sources all over the world. The fossils produce dry sediment high in silica that easily crumbles to a powder. Silica is the most plentiful element on earth and a key component to skin, bones, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage. Even the liver, heart, lungs, and blood contain silica. It’s especially handy for helping the digestive tract to eliminate heavy metals and a bunch of other nasties from the body. The powder contains a natural mix of the following minerals…
Calcium is vital for healthy teeth and bones and is also important for the health and functioning of nerves and muscle tissue. For us ladies, as our estrogen levels drop with menopause our calcium levels also drop and bone density can reduce, causing osteoporosis. Research suggests that one in two women over the age of 60 years will experience at least one fracture due to osteoporosis – we don’t want that so keep your calcium intake up.
Magnesium is present in every human organ and is considered a vital mineral for over 300 biochemical reactions in our body that regulate our health and wellness. It has many benefits related to exercise including muscle relaxation, bruise control, and improving joint mobility and repair. Magnesium can also have positive effects on the nervous system by providing relaxation and improve sleep. Anxiety and sleeplessness go hand in hand with menopause – magnesium is another little weapon in your arsenal against stress and fatigue.
Zinc is a nutrient that people need to stay healthy and is found in cells throughout the body. It helps the immune system fight off invading bacteria and viruses. Interestingly, most of the at-risk groups described for common viral infections such as cold and flu are groups that have been associated with zinc deficiency. Zinc is essential to preserve natural tissue barriers such as the respiratory epithelium and prevent pathogen entry, allowing for a balanced function of the immune system and the redox system.
Iron is a mineral the body needs for growth and development. Your body uses iron to make hemoglobin which represents about two-thirds of the body’s iron. If you don't have enough iron, your body can't make enough healthy oxygen-carrying red blood cells. A lack of red blood cells means your body cells don’t get enough oxygen to produce all the energy you need. Good iron levels promote good energy production.
