Covid-19: Why You Need to Go With Your Gut!
Sometimes, you’ve just got to go with your gut.
Smiling at the cute guy in Starbucks or not walking down that dark path at dusk might have felt like small, inconsequential decisions at the moments that you made them. But those instinctive moments may have carried the power to alter the direction of your entire life.
Famous entrepreneurs and celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, Richard Branson, and Steve Jobs are all famed for following their gut instinct, with hugely profitable results. But did you know that there’s another equally powerful way to go with your gut?
It’s a biological approach based on the 80-20 rule – that up to 80% of your immune cells1 reside in your gut. And the healthier your gut, the less likely you are to contract Covid-192, or to suffer more serious symptoms if you do contract it!
Read on to discover the science behind the story!
The Coal That Powers the Engine
When it comes to immunity, a balanced gut microbiome truly lies at the heart of this story. That’s exactly why a new3 research study confirms that the health of the gut plays a vital role in reducing the severity of Covid-19 symptoms.
We know that we’re already facing one of the worst flu seasons4 in modern history, and with the new Omicron Covid-19 variant also emerging, we need to take every opportunity we can to fight back. That means making the most one of the most powerful weapons that nature has gifted us! What exactly is that gift?
A fired-up immune system.
And the coal that fires that engine?
Covid-19 and Gut Health
Here’s an amazing fact. Up to 80% 5 of your immune cells reside in your gut. Your gut is filled with bacteria, but without a healthy balance of ‘good’ bacteria, those immune cells can’t function effectively. For example, some of your immune cells spend their entire existence excreting huge quantities of antibodies into your gut. Those antibodies could be hugely useful in a healthy gut, but in an unhealthy one? Their benefits diminish significantly 6.
That could lead to frequent colds, flu, fatigue, inflammation7, and even Covid-19.
A healthy diet is a perfect way to power up your good bacteria levels. That means flooding your body8 with vitamins, minerals, and other vital nutrients daily. It also requires you to maintain a diet low in sugar, fat, coffee, and alcohol, and always stay adequately hydrated. Sleeping well is also necessary, and you need to avoid stress wherever you can!
We’ve Always Got Your Back!
