Three Reasons Why You Should Pay More Attention to Your Gut Health from Sarah Bowmar

Did you know that your gut is one of the most important parts of your body? It has major influences on a lot of essential functions that keep you healthy and well, yet is often overlooked by many.

I recently had the opportunity to talk to certified nutrition specialist, author, and the founder and CEO of Apex Protein Snacks and Bowmar Nutrition, Sarah Bowmar, about gut health and she says that there are three main reason why you should take better care of yours:

1. 70% of your immune cells is in your gut

Sarah explains, “Too many people associate their immune system to strictly Vitamin C and that is simply not the case. While Vitamin C is a great vitamin to maintain a healthy immune system, ensuring you are getting enough fiber is also vital. You want to stay healthy? You want your body to be strong enough to fight diseases? Keep your gut healthy.”

2. The health of your gut has direct effects on your metabolism

“The trillions of microorganisms present in your gut literally dictate how your metabolism will work, so ensuring their balance is very important. If you think you have issues with your metabolism, chances are you need to pay more attention to your gut health.”

3. Your gut health influences your mental health

According to Sarah, “About 95% of the body’s serotonin can be found in the gut. Serotonin is a very essential hormone. It is key to modulating your mood, learning, and memory, among other physiological processes. If you constantly have low serotonin levels, there’s a big chance that you will get depression and anxiety or start experiencing sleeping problems.”

According to Sarah, one of the ways people can start taking better care of their gut today is through the regular consumption of fiber.

“Only 5% of Americans consume an adequate amount of fiber per day! It is recommended, for an adult, to consume 14g for every 1,000 calories you consume. For example, if you are dieting on 1,500 calories, you should be consuming 21g of fiber. 2,000 calories = 28g of fiber and so on. The only way to know how much fiber you consume per day is by keeping tracking and tallying it at the end of the day. If you are underrating on fiber through your whole food sources, supplementing with Bowmar Nutrition Fiber is a great way to fill the gap. One scoop of our fiber is 10g which makes filling the fiber gap extremely easy. If you’re under by 5g- you can use 1/2 a scoop! There is such a thing as too much fiber and it can have the opposite effect (more bloating and less regular trips to the bathroom) so you want to ensure you are getting the perfect amount!”

Bowmar Nutrition Fiber contains psyllium husk, which according to various studies, is proven to relieve constipation. When combined with water, psyllium husk stimulates the intestines to contract and helps speed the passage of stool through the digestive tract. Adequate consumption of fiber per day is proven to help reduce bloating, improve your overall feeling of wellness, regulate bowel movements, help support your immune system, reduce bad cholesterol levels, improve insulin sensitivity, and reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
