Unlike mechanical plumbing, your gut lining is not a sealed pipe transporting your food from one part to another. The gastrointestinal tract, or the shute that connects your throat when you swallow your food, to all the organs that play a role in digestion including your colon, is porous. How much gets through is the measure of the nutrients and minerals your body has access to. Let's umbrella that all as your gut.
The Gut lining is then the term for the frontline cells that make first contact with the food your body wants to digest.
1.Observe and assess your health status.
What does your poo look like? Compare characteristics in a previous blog "The Best Thing About Poo..!" and adjust according to logic. If you are constipated, drink more water. If you are losing nutrients before you've absorbed them, eat more fibre.
Fermentation is a process of allowing a SCOBY to feed on a provided food and the result is a transformed drink or food with alive cultures of good bacteria. You can introduce these cultures to your digestive system to your benefit. Theoretically (I am not qualified beyond my own interpretation; be sure to explore the topic in all directions for yourself) it is these micro-organisms that exist to do the work of mineralising nutrients for you. Milk kefir and water kefir are readily available beverages that compete with popular drinking yogurts and soda's for their delicious creaminess and fizziness and are outstanding in their delivery of the perfect collections of cultures for your microbiome.
We at NUMESA believe that if you have a healthy tummy, that is a balanced gut microbiome, then you will see the results manifest as a happier life. Your gut lining will have the support on the frontline that it needs and if the first contact cells are doing their job correctly and are given enough water to sustain their efforts, they can flatten the curve of that disruption and restore all of your potential body functions to good health.
