First, head over to my Instagram to get a chance to win a sample of my fave drink!! Happening later today!
Now for some things I am learning about!!
Clinical dietician Jamie Withrow said, “Sugar cravings are rarely a simple lack of will power. Usually there is a physical reason they [people] are craving sugar. Yeast overgrowth.”
Did you know that a sign of a healthy gut, is little to no sugar cravings??!! I didn’t 🙂 I also know my gut “digestive area” still has room to improve 🙂
We all have bad bacteria that can multiply in our gut due to stress, sugar, medications, etc.
Candida is a nasty fungus that can result from yeast overgrowth. It disturbs metabolism, and makes us crave sweets. Look it up!! 🙂
Jessica Hoogendoorn, Certified Nutritional Counselor says, “Think of your gut like a walled castle, a fortress. If it is sealed like it’s supposed to be, then it keeps toxins out, they go from the gut to the liver, and the liver filters the junk and sends it OUT and we are healthy 🙂
Sadly, today, there are so many folks suffering from “Leaky gut”, and all the things that go with it, and that is why there are so many health conditions. I am really fascinated by this! 🙂 Who knew how intricately our bodies are created!! Our brain is even connected to our gut! Did you know the gut has been called “THE SECOND BRAIN”?? God created us so wonderfully!!
Did you know your gut can influence your mood? 🙂 It is estimated that 90% of the body’s serotonin is produced in the digestive tract. Serotonin can affect mood, sleep ,etc.
Ok, I probably have bored some of you, so I’ll stop for today 🙂
But health is something I love to learn about, and help others with, and it has become a passion of mine!! 🙂
Just this past week, a busy homeschooling momma friend who is trying out my fave products, sent me a message that she has fewer cravings for caffeine and sugar, more energy, lighter and less painful cycle, and feels great. I love getting messages like that!! And it is why I keep sharing 🙂
Happy Wednesday, friends!!
