Top 7 Foods for Healing Leaky Gut
Hey guys, Axe here, of naturalmedicine. In this tutorial I'm going to share with you the top seven foods for healing leakygut along with the healing leaky gut diet. Leaky gut syndrome is where you get somethingcalled intestinal permeability. That's where certain proteins like gluten start to leakthrough your intestinal wall, get in your blood stream, and then cause systemic bodywide inflammation. It can cause inflammation of your thyroid causing Hashimoto's disease.It can cause inflammation of your large intestine and cause inflammatory bowel disease. It canalso cause inflammation causing food sensitivities and different reactions in your body. By consumingthese seven foods it can help you heal leaky
gut syndrome for good. Let's start off here with the number one food,and that's bone broth. Bone broth has traditionally been made by boiling or cooking the ligamentsof chickens as well as the bones and also bones from beef. What happens is certain aminoacids and minerals come out into the liquid. The most powerful amino acids are prolineand glycine. We know proline is a precursor to collagen. We know when your body stopsproducing collagen over time it's what causes you to get wrinkles and your skin to get loose.It's a similar thing with your digestive tract. We want that tight. We want those tight junctionstight in your gut. We don't want things like
gluten getting through. Proline and glycine,the amino acids in bone broth, help tighten it up and can help repair the damaged gutlining. Drinking bone broth every day is incrediblyhealthy for healing leaky gut syndrome. Also, bone broth contains Lglutamine, another aminoacid that really works as a BandAid for your small intestine and colon and really helpingprotect those areas. Again, bone broth, number one healing food for leaky gut. I recommendeight ounces two times a day. The best thing to do is get a big CrockPot and make realbone broth soup and drink that several times a day.
The second healing food for leaky gut syndromeis kefir or homemade yogurt. We know fermented dairy is the most probiotic rich super foodin the world today. If you can be getting goat's milk kefir or homemade yogurt. Homemadeyogurt should be fermented 24 to 29 hours. We know it contains specific types of probioticssuch as lactobacillus which have been shown to crowd out bad bacteria such as differenttypes of yeast and fungus and really help increase the probiotics in the gut. Listen, most people today have a severe probioticdeficiency. If you're going to heal leaky gut, you have got to restore any probioticdeficiencies. Again, kefir, goat's milk kefir
and yogurt are the best. You can find thoseat your local health food store. The third healing food for leaky gut syndromeare fermented vegetables such as sauerkraut, kimchi, kvass, and coconut kefir as well.Different types of fermented vegetables, especially sauerkraut, are greatly beneficial becauseit contains bacillus subtilis. Bacillus subtilis is a soil based probiotic. It also containslactobacillus plantarum probably in the largest levels. These probiotics in a similar fashioncrowd out bad bacteria. Also, they're at a certain Ph. You know thatreally sour, tart taste when you're tasting sauerkrauté Those are organic acids. Thoseacids really help feed and fuel probiotics
in the gut. It's not just about getting moreprobiotics. It's about creating an environment where probiotics can flourish. Again, gettingsauerkraut and kimchi and fermented vegetables in your diet is a great way to establish thatgood bacteria in the gut. The number four super food for healing leakygut is coconut products, especially coconut oil. Coconut oil has antimicrobial properties.It contains the fatty acids lauric acid, capric acid, and caprylic acid. These are known asmedium chain fats or medium chain triglycerides. They kill off bad bacteria in the gut. Theyare very easy to digest. For that reason, all other oils in your diet should reallybe replaced with coconut oil when it comes
How to Naturally Heal Low Stomach Acid
Hey, guys, Axe here from draxe . Today,I'm going to talk about natural remedies for low stomach acid. The truth is, your stomachmust be acidic and highly acidic to break down the food you're consuming and for properabsorption. If you have acid reflux of any type, GERD,heartburn, if you have a condition like leaky gut or inflammatory bowel disease, even mostskin issues today, or a lack of certain nutrients, those are all major warning signs that youhave low stomach acid. So you actually want to naturally balance the pH of your stomach. I'm going to talk about the top five stepsand natural remedies you can take and follow
to naturally improve your stomach acid andimprove your digestive function. Again, these are great ways, especially if you have acidreflux, these are great natural cures and remedies. So number one thing you can do to start tobalance this pH in your stomach is take apple cider vinegar right before your meals. I wouldtake one tablespoon and just a very small thing of water. Apple cider vinegar is a great thing to do.It's a great natural remedy because apple cider vinegar has a very low pH in balancewith your stomach. That's the number one remedy.
By the way, one of the thing oftentimes I'lladd to my apple cider vinegar before a meal are digestive bitters. You can get a littletincture of digestive bitters. Those are also great. In fact, bitters have been consumedfor thousands of years right after meals or before meals to improve your digestion. Number two thing you want to start takingto improve your stomach acid are digestive enzymes. I would get a good digestive enzymeblend and do one to two caps right before your meal. You could even take that with theapple cider vinegar. Digestive enzymes will help you fully break down those nutrients.
If your stomach acid is too high, that willactually not allow you to break down the food you're eating, so you must get plenty of enzymes.That's not something you should have to take the rest of your life, but it is somethingyou should take for a time until your stomach acid balances out. That's number two. Number three thing you may consider if youhave stomach acid is HCL with pepsin. That's hydrochloric acid with pepsin. Now, hydrochloricacid is naturally created in your stomach now. That is really the main thing that createsthat very acidic environment to break down food.
But if you're deficient in hydrochloric acid,in stomach acid yourself, that's not going to allow you to fully digest and break downthings like protein, which over time, can also cause a condition called leaky gut. Soyou want to do everything you can to heal and repair your gut. So again, HCL with pepsin is a great thingyou can start taking on a regular basis to really help heal your GI tract, to help fightthings like acid reflux, but again, to help improve stomach acid. Now, the trick with HCL is you typically wantto take that while you're under the care of
a physician or start off with one capsule.By the way, you only take HCL with pepsin if you're taking protein during a meal. Soagain, if you're not taking protein in a meal, you don't want to use it. If you're getting quite a bit of protein ina meal like chicken or beef, you want to take HCL. When you get warmness in your stomachthat means you're taking enough. You need to back it down. Some people need one, somepeople may need to take up to nine capsules of HCL with pepsin. The fourth thing you can do to improve stomachacid is take Manuka honey. Manuka honey is
Hey, guys, Axe here. I'm so excited toshare with you a new, cuttingedge product we have and one of the supplements that Ipersonally use the most and its collagen protein. And collagen protein is actually the aminoacids that you would find in something like bone broth today, which we know to be oneof the top healing foods in the entire world. Collagen really has four unique benefits andas I go through this tutorial, by the way, I also want to go through who needs to be takingthis and how it can benefit your health. But really, four main benefits. One, this really improves leaky gut or itreally supports your digestive tract. So collagen
really supports digestion. Also, it helpswith joint health and even things like any sort of joint discomfort. The other thing it can help with is helpingtone and tighten your skin. So it's used in a lot of skin products, collagen is. Lastbut not least, collagen is also used to support a healthy metabolism for things like fatburning,weight loss overall, even building muscle. But collagen is important for, really, allof those things. So what collagen is, again, its amino acidsand amino acids are the building blocks of protein. So, number one, if you are tryingto increase your metabolism or get more protein
in your diet, supplementing with collagenis fantastic and it works for so many people because collagen is dairyfree, it's glutenfreeand it's easily digested. So even a lot of people in things like the GAPS diet or peopleout there who are looking to really support and heal their gut, they use collagen insteadof protein powder. Or a lot of people like myself do protein powder and collagen, maybeeven some green superfood powder there in my morning smoothie. But again, collagen is really for anybodywho are looking for those four distinct ways to support their body and benefit their bodyand number one is joints. Collagen works because
collagen is the building blocks of your tissues.So if you're an athlete or you have any sort of joint pain or discomfort or you're a runneror any sort of stress on your joints or if you experience joint discomfort on a regularbasis, collagen is the building blocks of supporting your body and your body creatingnew and healthy tissues. That's why it's so great for your joints, whether it be issueswith your knees or hips or shoulders or risks or back or any of those joint areas, it'sfantastic. Collagen is a great thing you want to be supplementing with on a daily basis. Also, as I mentioned earlier, it's great foryour skin. Collagen is made up of two amino
acids primarily called proline and glycine.Proline is that amino acid that helps tighten your skin. So you're going to find collagensupplements are found in a lot of skincare products. It's even used by some people tohelp reduce issues like cellulite. But we know collagen is great because collagen helpsfirm, tone and tighten your skin. One of the things that happens as we startto age is your own skin and body starts producing less collagen. So you need to be getting morecollagen in your diet on a regular basis and so doing a little bit of collagen powder inyour morning smoothie or throughout the day is a great way to really support and toneand tighten your skin naturally.
Also, collagen is vitally important for helpingheal your gut. Now, collagen can be used or it's very similar to gelatin and collagenis what helps make up gelatin and those amino acids, proline and glycine. But your gut,we know issues like leaky gut. Your gut kind of works as a net and you can get holes inyour gut. Gluten can leak through and that's essentially what leaky gut is or digestiveissues. It's when things like gluten or casein or toxins leak through your gut, get intoyour bloodstream and cause systemwide inflammation which can then affect your joints. It caneven lead to things like autoimmune disease over time or skin issues or thyroid issuesor any sort of inflammatory reaction.
