Healing the gut is a several-step approach. You must do the following:
There are several supplements that are effective in healing the gut. Supplements such as glutamine, probiotics, deglycyrrhized licorice, aloe vera, and digestive enzymes are all useful in calming inflammation, rebuilding the intestine, and improving digestion.
Deglycyrrhized licorice and aloe vera reduce the inflammation of the intestinal lining. The process of gut restoration should begin with the reduction of gut inflammation.
Concurrent to reducing inflammation is the rebuilding of the intestinal walls. Glutamine has the ability to repair the lining of the gut, thus restoring its ability to absorb nutrients.
While healing the gut, it is an excellent idea to give it a reprieve from shouldering the full burden of the digestive process. Probiotics and digestive enzymes are very helpful in this process.
Probiotics are naturally occurring healthy bacteria that reside in the small intestine. They keep yeast and harmful bacteria in check.
Enzymes have unique properties – some are better at digesting fat, some protein, and some carbohydrate. Supplying the intestine with enzymes while improving gut health ensures that the digestive process is optimized.
