Why A Healthy Digestive System Is A Healthy Immune System
We all know a good immune system helps us fight germs, diseases and keeps our bodies healthythrough a pandemic. But did you know 70 percent of the immune system is located in your gut?
But many people have a “leaky gut” and don’t even know it. A leaky gut allows toxins and bacteria into the blood stream and causes autoimmune diseases, as well as makes you vulnerable to other diseases. Growing evidence continues to show that a healthy microbiome in the gut can prevent leaky gut.
While a leaky gut can be hard to diagnose, it’s best to be proactive and take probiotics to prevent and even reverse a leaky gut that already exists, as well as improve one’s overall immune system.
In our gut, we all have trillions of microbes of bacteria, fungi and viruses collectively known as the microbiome. If the gut has a lot of harmful bacteria, it creates imbalance in what should be a healthy microbiome, which is a delicate balance of good and bad bacteria and other microorganisms. We’re born with a sterile gut, but as we age we introduce bacteria, viruses and fungi from daily life.
There are many factors that can create imbalance of the gut’s microbiome, whether it’s a poor diet, eating the wrong foods, or an excess of food or drink such as alcohol, which can create a yeast overgrowth.
How can you naturally support your microbiome? Maintaining a healthy microbiome in your gut starts with what you eat.
High Fiber Fruits and Veggies
Make sure to eat a high fiber diet, including lots of vegetables that are green and leafy, broccoli and asparagus. Diets high in fruits and vegetables are less likely to feed bacteria that cause disease as well as creates an alkalinity in the body, which is important in preventing illness.
Cut Out Sugar
Cutting out sugar and processed foods is another way to support your microbiome. We know that taking a probiotic is important, but just as important is eating prebiotics to feed the good bacteria with foods such as beans, onions, apples, garlic, green tea, cocao, nuts and seeds.
Get at least eight hours of sleep. Studies have shown people with erratic sleep can leave be vulnerable to developing inflammatory diseases and disrupt thegut’s microbiome.
We know life can be busy. So we’ve taken the guesswork out and created a program that promotes a healthy microbiome.
This program includes Botanical Cleanse to prevent an overgrowth and imbalance in the gut. There’s a reason this plant-based product has been so popular since the pandemic. It’s one of the only natural supplements created to eliminate bad bacteria and fungi from the GI tract, while also having antiviral and antimicrobial properties.
Each gluten-free and dairy-free capsule includes thyme, French tarragon, stinging nettle extract, horsetail, Pau D’Arco and olive leaf. This botanical formula has antimicrobial properties due to a wide array of terpenoid and polyphenolic compounds.
We included Pau D’Arco for its powerful antifungalproperties. A yeast overgrowth in the gut is often one of the hardest things to eliminate. In laboratories, Pau D’Arco has also been shown to have anticancer and antibacterial activities.

We always strive to be as eco-friendly as we can be. While some companies use large bottles for a small proportion of pills, we choose bottles that are proportionate to the number of capsules, so there’s less plastic waste!
