IMPROVING THE HEALTH OF YOUR EXISTING GUT BACTERIA IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN SUPPLEMENTING WITH NEW BACTERIA
We have trillions of bacteria in our gut and bodies, far more than any supplement can repopulate alone. Only a diverse and clean diet can make lasting improvements and change to your gut health.
Red pigmented foods are worth a spec dial mention as there is now research that shows how the pigment found in these foods actually improves the health of your gut microbiome and resolve things like IBS and digestive issues - by improving the health of your existing gut microbiome and bacteria, rather than supplementing new bacteria in. You have trillions of bacteria in your gut, and by increasing your red pigment intake you can optimise the health of those existing microbes, ensuring they flourish.
Bifidobacterium t is the most important bacteria for immune health and the number 1 species that explodes when we are infants and start consuming breast milk. Our bifidobacteria is so important when it comes to immune health and inflammation, it helps our immune system regulate, helps to prevent against immune diseases, inflammation, allergies and disease.
RED PIGMENT IN FOOD
The number 1 thing you can do to nurture the health of your bifidobacteria is eat more red/purple pigmented foods.
The red pigment creates an environment in the gut that makes it inhospitable to bad and pathogenic bacteria and MORE hospitable to the number 1 species of gut bacteria bifidobacteria.
WHY RED & PURPLE PIGMENTED FOOD IS GOOD FOR YOU
Red and purple pigmented foods are wildly rich in anthocyanins, which help your gut bacteria just as much as your metabolic health.
A research study conducted by Zheng & Wang 2004 showed that cranberries were the best source of flavonols, followed by beetroot, amongst 30 flavonoids containing plant foods studied.
Consuming red pigmented foods and healthy phytochemical s such as Cranberry juice and beetroot can literally transform your microbiome. The more diversity and colour you have in your food sources, the better the healthy bacteria can populate. Overtime this not only strengthens your immune system and health, but can literally transform the look and feel of your skin texture, can help reduce swelling, stabilise glucose levels, regulate weight, and balance hormonal health.
"I drink pure cranberry juice daily, unseated, from organic source. I still take the Radiance Powder daily as it contains dry freeze organic plant extracts - the dry freeze ensures the nutrient intake is kept at an optimum for each plant." - Antoneta
A MUST HAVE IN YOUR DAILY ROUTINE
The Radiance Powder for its organic beetroot extract and to give you a flavonoid boost. It contains plants of food based probiotics and postbiotics and a huge dose of red pigment from the wild berry, elderflower and organic beetroot which are all real whole food based, dry freezed and crushed to keep the high nutrient benefits from each raw material.
Cranberry is one of the best sources of flavonols, specifically quercetin, and is twice as high as even grape juice or pomegranate. Ingesting both cranberry and beetroot daily regulates blood glucose levels, lowers lipid levels and helps with swelling and water retention, stimulating lymph circulation (allowing easier toxin release).
If you're someone that experiences water retention, swelling or other complications from metabolic dysfunction, PCOS, or hormone related, try adding these flavonols as they help your gut related lymph tissue and lymphatic system in general eliminate those toxins more effectively and improve populations of good, anti-inflammatory bacteria that can be compromised in a gut environment where toxins are present.
The Red pigment within (PACs) feed our bifidobacteria, prevent bad bacteria from sticking to our internal mucous membranes, and boost the lymphatic system. Other benefits include reduced water retention, puffiness, and vital kidney support.
