Why Probiotics Are Essential For Gut Health, But May Not Fix Gut Issues
Over the last 2 weeks I spent some time writing on the pervasiveness of glyphosate and how it is causing untold damage in the world.
I also wrote about how even though that seems like really bad news, there is reason to hope despite the doom and gloom prognostications.
To continue on this series I want to bring it home by talking about the role of probiotics in all of this.
As I’ve written previously, probiotics are essential for gut health.
And while probiotics are essential for gut health, the truth of the matter is they’re only 1 part of the gut health puzzle.
Especially as our world is overloaded with toxins like glyphosate.
Today I’m going to talk about a how a product called Ion Gut Health helps to restore the structure of your gut so that probiotics actually have a chance to thrive.
Dr. Zach Bush designed this formula, and if you’ll recall from my previous emails, Dr. Bush is a leading authority on how glyphosate damages the gut.
We’ve been offering it to patients for several years now (it used to be called Restore®), and Dr. Bush has had remarkable success using it in his practice.
As you’ll see, taking Ion daily gives your gut the chance to heal so probiotics can take up residence and colonize within your intestines and help to re-establish healthy gut function.
Why Most People’s Bodies Can’t Fully Accept Probiotics
Probiotics are essential for gut health because the probiotics bacteria help us to digest our food while also eating the waste of other bacteria and viruses that exist in the gut.
Our guts are an entire ecosystem alive with trillions upon trillions of microscopic organisms that all work together to digest food and consume the waste of each other.
It’s nasty work, but it’s what helps us live healthy lives.
The problem with glyphosate is that this incredibly powerful toxin obliterates the healthy gut bacteria we need to support perfect gut health.
And when they’re gone our gut suffers.
The biggest casualty of massive probiotic die-off is known as leaky gut. Leaky gut is a well-known condition that spawns a myriad of detrimental health problems.
When physicians and experts talk about leaky gut what they’re really talking about is the loss of your guts’ ability to maintain tight junctions.
Imagine for a second that your gut is made up of a very thin layer of mesh and that mesh is wound together so tightly that nothing can penetrate it.
Leaky gut occurs when toxins and other unnatural products degrade the “tightness” of that mesh and allow for food and other substances to leak out of your gut into the body.
The visual image of your gut acting like mesh has a scientific term: tight junctions.
Your gut’s tight junctions actually help to form a seal between each and every cell in your gut.
If there’s even a slight bit of damage to these seals it can spell disaster.
This is especially true because in many cases the lining of your gut is about 1/16th as thin as hair off your head.
We’re talking beyond paper thin.
And sadly, it doesn’t take much to start ripping these tight junctions apart.
The 3 most significant contributors to the loss of tight junction integrity in the body are as follows:
- Herbicides (chiefly glyphosate)
What you need to understand is once the damage to your gut is done it doesn’t really matter how many probiotics you dump into your body because they’re simply not going to be able to grow and flourish.
Imagine for a second that your house was on fire.
If your idea for making it better was to rebuild the sections that burned down without ever putting out the flames you’d never be able to rebuild your home.
That’s why probiotics alone can’t necessarily fix gut issues caused by those 3 factors listed above.
Fortunately, Dr. Bush recognized that and that’s why he created Ion Gut Health.
Ion Gut Health has the unique ability to restore the tight junctions within your gut so that probiotics will work like they’re meant to.
Here’s some of the more intricate and scientific explanation behind how Ion Gut Health supports the integrity of the lining of your gut.
The Amazing Healing Power Of Ion Gut Health
The first thing I want to let you know is there are a lot of people out there who would love to convince you that Ion Gut Health doesn’t work.
Anytime a doctor makes a supplement people claim there’s a conflict of interest at hand and the only reason that the supplement exists is for money.
Not only is that not true here.
Dr. Bush is a triple-board certified MD.
And the way he got his start with Ion Gut Health had to do with his research helping to create chemotherapy drugs.
While in the lab, Dr. Bush noticed that the chemo drugs he made shared remarkably similar characteristics to many of the herbicides sprayed on our crops.
Knowing how much damage these drugs can do to us led him to fight to restore human health as he was aware that the levels of pesticides we’re exposed to is insane.
With Ion Gut Health, he’s done his due diligence and not just relied on the strength of his experience using it in his practice, but has had it reviewed in various medical journals.
You can see what those studies have to say about Ion Gut Health by going here.
The way Ion Gut Health works is as follows (from Zach’s website):
“ION*Gut Health supports the body’s production of beneficial enzymes through redox signaling (cellular communication).
Those beneficial enzymes support the tight junctions (the seals between cells) in our gut lining – the barrier protecting us from toxic substances like glyphosate and gluten while allowing the entry of beneficial nutrients.
It’s a critical barrier to keep strong so that a vibrant microbiome can flourish. Good health depends entirely on gut health because a lot more than digestion happens in the gut. It’s also where proper immune system function begins and the majority of our neurotransmitters, such as serotonin, are created.
Say yes to ION*Gut Health and you are saying yes to optimal gut-brain connectivity and feel-good transmissions, protection from the toxins we face every day in our air, water, and food, immune function, digestive wellness, and supported gluten tolerance.”
Ion Gut Health helps to heal by introducing Terrahydrite® which is a blend of minerals and extracts of lignites (types of fossilized soil sediments) that help to improve gut integrity.
And as I stated, the science shows that repeated tests demonstrate it restores our cellular tight cell junction integrity.
When you take this along with a probiotic it can help to heal you from all kinds of damage.
Here in the office we’ve had great success with it.
I can’t tell you how many patients report back to us that by taking it for just a few weeks their health is dramatically improved.
The bigger sizes save you more money and the smaller ones allow you to try it out and see if it impacts your health without feeling like you’ve spent too much on an untested product.
