5 Ways to Maintain a Healthy Weight
If you’re looking to start a new weight loss regimen this New Year, the first place to start is the gut!
Not only is this where most of the immune system resides, but a healthy weight has been linked to several species of beneficial bacteria living in the gut.
Here are the five best ways to help promote good bacteria in the gut:
1. Add fiber
Fiber is the primary food source for the beneficial bugs in the gut, especially those organisms that are linked to weight loss and maintaining a healthy weight.
2. Limit sugar
Sugar feeds the harmful bacteria in the gut, and an overgrowth of these pathogens has been linked to obesity and weight gain.
3. Take a probiotic
Probiotics help populate the gut with good bacteria that can help maintain a healthy weight. Zenwise® Digestive Enzymes features a probiotic that is clinically proven to be Reliably Alive™, and, in turn, helps populate the gut with those specific beneficial living organisms. The DE111® probiotic survives its trip to the digestive tract, so it ends up in the gut, where it’s most important!
4. Eliminate junk food
Like sugar, processed foods offer empty calories or little nutritional value. On top of that, junk food may promote the growth of harmful bacteria.
5. Manage stress
Research shows that stress is more damaging to the gut than junk food! It has been cited to weaken the gut lining and destroy the good bacteria in the gut, leading to more pathogens.
However you cut it, kicking off a new health regime can be tough. Try starting with one or two of these options and build from there. You’ll notice how these small steps lead to bigger changes day by day.
Changing food habits is challenging to say the least. Some dietary tweaks are easy, such as loading up on fiber-rich veggies and fruits.
Lifestyle changes, including stress management activities, are equally important. So, get your ‘OM’ on and chillax; your health will thank you.
For an easy change to your routine, add Zenwise® supplements, which are the perfect support crew for your New Year, Better You journey.
Besides a full line of probiotic-based supplements, try tasty Green Tea Fat Burner Gummies for appetite control and weight management support†. And for heart, brain, immunity, and joint support†, include Vegan Omega-3, sustainably sourced from marine algae, to your daily routine.
