Gut Health 101: SPEED

Did You Know That Food Sensitivity Tests Are So Inaccurate That National Associations Actually Recommend Against Them, Calling Them Dangerous?

Did You Know That Greens Powders Have No Evidence To Show Any Benefit?

Stop Wasting Money. Start SPEEDing Up Your Metabolism And Gut Health With These CorePerform Pillars.

S- Sleep

Poor amounts or quality of sleep causes many issues, including physical stress, circadian disruption, and hormone imbalance. These will then cause irregular appetite, a lack of bowel movements, and increased cortisol (which can in turn cause more lack of sleep!)

P-Personal Stress.

The Gut-Brain axis is REAL. Chronic stress from work, negative thoughts, or emotions cause trigger the enteric nervous system to slow digestion and cause abdominal pain. Personal stress can also increase gastric acid, causing indigestion and heartburn. Overall, this leads to inflammation, dysbiosis, and impaired gastrointestinal (GI) function.

E-Environmental Stress.

Over time, environmental stressors can lead to physical, chemical and biological stress that in turn increases cortisol.

Elevated cortisol can:

  • increase the permeability of our gut lining and cause nutritional deficiencies and food sensitivities
  • alter the gut microbiome- impacting metabolism and immunity, and decrease gut motility- leading to gas, bloating, constipation, and even small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO).

Not all environmental stressors are in our control, but we can be proactive about the ones that are. 

E- Exercise.

Exercise in excess (or the incorrect type) can add stress to our bodies and also increase the hormone cortisol. If you’ve ever had to run to the bathroom, or started cramping while working out, you know the effects can happen pretty fast. However, over exercising (or the wrong type) can also increase gut permeability, alter gut microbiome, and decrease gut motility due to the excess stress on the body. 

D- Diet.

Our diet directly impacts our gut microbiota. We are not what we eat, but what we absorb. So sometimes, even eating “healthy” may not be helping. Increased inflammation due to diet can increase gut permeability causing nutrient deficiencies and food sensitivities. Decreased gut motility from poor diet patterns can lead to gas, bloating, hormonal disfunction, and even small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO).

There is no one best diet for everyone. That’s why in CorePerform we figure out what foods work for YOUR body so we can improve YOUR digestion and YOUR performance.

As mentioned, food sensitivity tests are inaccurate AND dangerous because they use IgG testing, which have NOT been shown to reliably identify food allergies or sensitives. The healthiest diet is the most inclusive, and these tests create restrictive diets unnecessarily.

Restrictive diets such as the Ketogenic Diet  or Low FODMAP diet may leave us at risk for nutrient deficiencies and dysbiosis over time. Registered Dietitian and published nutrition researchers Dasha Agoulnik has created a protocol  to help her clients get to the root cause of their digestive issues and empower their guts with everything they need to know to tackle life full force.

The program is 12 weeks and will help reduce bloat and identify food sensitivities naturally. 100% of her clients have seen inflammation.

Now that you know what affects the gut….
