Radiant Physical Health

You seek spiritual liberation, mental tranquillity and radiant physical health. Do you know the vital importance of a healthy gut (intestinal) microbiome? Intestinal health is crucial for overall physical health, optimal immune system, neurogenesis, nutrient absorption, increased vitality, and reduced inflammation. It even affects your moods. Over eighty percent of your body's serotonin (the primary happiness neurotransmitter) is manufactured by the nerve cells in your gut.

Prebiotics

These feed your healthy gut bacteria. Examples include: raw garlic, raw onion, raw asparagus, raw leek, raw chicory root, raw dandelion greens, raw Jerusalem artichoke. I prefer using this easy-mixing super-healthy prebiotic powder: Bulletproof Inner Fuel (1-2 scoops per day).

Probiotics

These provide you with healthy gut bacteria. You can purchase probiotic capsules from a health store. You need a diversity of gut bacteria, so seek a variety of healthy strains. Also consume spore probiotics, which have a different but complementary function to regular probiotics. Spore probiotics usually contain bacillus varieties (e.g. bacillus subtilis, clausii, coagulans). Consider the value of enteric-coated and time-release capsules too. Consume probiotics daily with food.

Protection

Consider these potent foods which are superfuel for gut cells and repair the intestinal lining: MCT C8 caprylic acid (Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil), organic grass-fed collagen peptides, organic grass-fed ghee. Viome gut microbiome analysis offers personalised feedback.

Also, try an Oura ring for useful sleep feedback. Nutrition is a personal choice. Always do your research, heed medical guidelines, possibly hire the services of a nutritionist, and discover what works best for your body.
