YES, PROBIOTICS ARE key for a healthy gut. All the buzz they’ve received over the past few years is with good reason! But even with taking probiotics and eating well, many might still find themselves dealing with bloating, general gut issues and just feeling overall blah after eating.
More than almost any other function in the body, digestion requires massive amounts of energy. If our digestive system isn’t in balance, our bodies can overwork themselves, wasting precious energy that should be used for our daily function, just to process our daily meals. Poor digestion can also place a big strain on our sleep, our mood, our skin and general sense of well-being.
The key nutrients in getting your gut and digestion in tip-top condition are digestive enzymes, prebiotics and probiotics.
We’ve been discovering HUM Nutrition’s full line-up of all-natural, function-specific supplements lately and especially love their smart solutions for daily digestion. Here are three daily supplements from HUM Nutrition that don’t get as much buzz as probiotics, but are crucial for daily digestive health…
Prebiotic Daily Cleanse
Probiotics get all the attention but prebiotics are an unsung gut health hero. Prebiotics are fiber that probiotics feed off of and used to increase healthy bacteria in the gut and aid in digestion. Good sources of prebiotics are asparagus, leeks, bananas, apples and garlic. Our bodies are built with their own innate detox mechanisms, but the demands of modern life put major stress on our systems. A supplement that contains prebiotics and supports gentle detoxification can do wonders for overall health and digestion. HUM’s Daily Cleanse supplement contains a potent blend of chlorella and algae (which binds to heavy metals), prebiotics and detoxifying herbs and minerals that help clear toxins from our skin.

Digestive enzymes are are our digestive secret weapon. Every nutritionist we know pops these discreetly at lunches out. Digestive enzymes are produced in our pancreas, stomach and salivary glands, and work to help break down the food we eat into smaller nutrients that our bodies can absorb and help decrease inflammation. Many factors such as genetics, environment, age and more impact our ability to produce enough of the right digestive enzymes so it’s helpful to take a full-spectrum digestive enzyme blend. Take one before your biggest meals to combat bloating, indigestion, constipation and inflammation. Enzymes are a powerful tool for achieving that glow that comes with good health. LEARN MORE
Probiotics help improve healthy bacteria in the gut, keeping your GI tract balanced and healthy. Probiotic bacteria Lactobacillus Acidophilus and Bifidobacterium Lactis have been shown to decrease symptoms of bloating and can help with digestion, immunity and mood.
