This video is way over due as it was one of our top questions we received during our gut healing journey that we did a year ago. “What supplements do we recommend for gut healing, better digestion, and skin?” Today we are answering that question.
Our top 5 favorite supplements for better gut health which leads to overall better health!
We’ve learned so much about supplements and how our bodies handle them. Keep in mind that every person will have difficult results with supplements depending on what level of health you are in, low on any vitamins, etc. but we feel just about everyone would benefit from a few of these.
We go over in the video more about why we love each one and why we feel they are worth it.
Enjoy the video.
Top 5 supplements to improve your overall health:
2. Fermented Cod liver oil
5. Digestive enzymes
And for the bonus supplement :
What exactly is gelatin? Gelatin is just a processed version of a structural protein called collagen that is found in many animals, including humans. Collagen actually makes up almost a third of all the protein in the human body.
We feel taking gelatin regularly has helped a lot with our skin and digestive issues plus improved our hair and nails! Gelatin helps with other amazing things like collagen, joints, good source of protein and helps to digest foods.
We like the Great Lakes brand. Another good brand is Bernard Jensen. Of course having bone broth is a great way to enjoy the benefits of gelatin as well.
Lately we’ve heard that most people eat way too much omega-6 fatty acids while not getting enough omega-3s. Plus most people do not eat enough saturated fats instead eat too much low fat foods. Most people are out of balance with their amino acid intake (building block for protein). If you look back on what our ancestors ate it would be no surprise as they ate every part of the animal. They did not have boneless/skinless meat options back then. So it makes sense that most of us do not get enough gelatin naturally in our diet.
We know taking gelatin is not for everyone, and that’s fine. But if you are suffering from poor gut and digestive help we highly recommend it.
As we mentioned in the video, we are still taking these supplements to this day. And plan to continue them for a little bit longer. Though we have this feeling that most of them we will probably continue to take for the rest of our lives. We’ve seen just such improvement in our overall health, that we plan to continue to supplement with them in our daily diet. Though, we have another feeling that our improvements were not just from these few supplements but also from eating mostly real foods and giving our bodies time to heal!
Of course we will keep you updated if things change or if we find something else worth sharing
