Hope you’ve recovered from the holidays and you’ve set some new goals for yourself.
If you haven’t considered your gut health as one of those goals, you may want to re-think.
70 million people in the U.S.* suffer from digestive diseases and millions more suffer from gut problems not technically classified as disease.
Your gut breaks down the foods you eat to deliver nutrients to your body. When your gut is healthy, this process works well.
Unfortunately the gut is affected everyday by pollution, chemicals in the foods we eat and the water we drink, poor dietary decisions, stress, and lack of sleep.
Your gut affects your immune system, mood, brain health, stress response, healthy skin, hormone disruption, disease prevention, allergies and more.
That’s a whole lotta body functions.
So how do you improve your gut health? Here are three ways.
- Eat more fruits and veggies. Your gut needs fiber. You should aim for 20 to 40 grams per day. We recommend Ruvi because it’s so dang easy to get extra fruits and vegetables every day.
- Manage your stress. Schedule time for meditation, deep breathing, or time in nature.
- Eat fermented foods everyday. These contain natural probiotics that support and heal the gut. Consider sauerkraut, kefir, miso, kimchi and kombucha.
We wanted to see what drinking a Ruvi a day for 60 days could do for people’s health. We asked them to make no other adjustments to their diet or lifestyle--simply drink 1 Ruvi a day.
Well, the results are pretty darn awesome.
Check it out!
This was based on a 60 day study with 30 people. Participants drank one Ruvi per day, rotating between the four varieties. They maintained their established eating and exercise routines throughout the trial.
Ruvi is so easy to take with me anywhere and I only need some cold water and a shaker bottle to prep.
Plus, it is oh-so-good for you!!
