The special blend of ingredients in Cider Tonic harnessed with it’s apple cider vinegar goodness can help relieve symptoms of Leaky Gut Syndrome.
Hello my Cider Tonic friends. It’s Marina here, coming to you from my cosy living room that looks out onto my garden. I’m snug by the fire. We are truly in the throws of winter down here in Gippsland and my husband and I are working on our new office space, which is really exciting!
However, today I wanted to write a little about Leaky Gut Syndrome, which is becoming more well known and letting you know how Cider Tonic can help.
What is Leaky Gut Syndrome?
More people are talking to me everyday when I am out at markets and visiting stockists. Many tell me that they are being diagnosed with Leaky Gut Syndrome. It’s a debilitating condition, where the lining of your gut does not do it’s job properly. Instead it’s swelling and not filtering waste while also not accessing nutrients in the food that you are eating. This means you can not absorb healthy food’s goodness.
The lining of your gut is supposed to keep the food you eat inside the walls of the intestine, so it doesn’t float around your body. Your intestines contains about 100 million neurones and trillions of bacteria which communicate with cells in your gut. Not to mention that it’s the place where food is broken down, your cells are fed, nutrients are absorbed, and where waste is processed.
However, an unhealthy gut lining doesn’t compute like this. When this lining fails it leads to uncomfortable symptoms such as gas, bloating, and nausea, as well as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), acid reflux, and autoimmune diseases.
Feel like yourself again…
Re-balance and find relief.
Your gut is your second brain.
Of course, with your gut being referred to as your “body’s brain”, these issues can hamper your moods, energy levels, skin condition, sleeping patterns and worryingly, your mental health. If you think you may have Leaky Gut Syndrome I implore you to go to a doctor. Get tested so you are empowered with the knowledge. You can then follow a specific diet to relieve these ailments.
The great news is that the use of Apple Cider Vinegar products including our Cider Tonic is well documented in providing relief. This is in conjunction with a diet created by a specialist. The bonus with Cider Tonic is that as well as the mother, my tonic contains fresh grown food ingredients. These include a boost of fibre thats easily absorbed. It can really bring those lagging energy levels up.
Rebalance your body with the mother.
My apple cider vinegar mother contains healthy bacteria, which can help re-balance your gut bacteria. It’s hard for bad bacteria to grow in an acidic environment. The acetic acid in the vinegar helps kill any yeast that is already there.
Prebiotic Vs Probiotic.
Eating prebiotic foods, including Cider Tonic combined with probiotic foods such as fermented vegetables, helps to reduce stress on the digestive system. This helps with pre-digesting meats and vegetables. Cider Tonic also helps to improve the flow of digestive juices.
Cider Tonic’s special ingredients, that I grow here in my garden, also include my favourite delicious superfoods ginger and turmeric. Ginger can improve production of stomach acid, bile, and pancreatic enzymes. These digestive “juices” help reduce inflammation that causes leaky gut. Ginger can also help relieve the nausea associated with the condition.
Superfoods like Turmeric make a difference.
Turmeric is a strong anti-inflammatory. In my opinion, you can create a delicious meal and build a strong gut with it! Turmeric contains curcumin, which helps to relax the muscles in the intestine, allowing the body to push food through without further damaging the gut lining.
Turmeric also contains enzymes that can alleviate stomach pain by secreting beneficial stomach mucous. This glorious mucous (yep I said it) acts as a shield from harmful gastric acid, how good is that?
So you can see…
Its very beneficial to add Cider Tonic into the food you are creating and to take it daily as part of a balanced diet.
Being diagnosed with Leaky Gut Syndrome can be an unnerving time, but by eating a balanced healthy diet and adding probiotic goodies like Cider Tonic, you will be a brand new balanced and energy loving version of your wonderful self in no time.
