Why is supplementing with magnesium important? - gut health

Why is supplementing with magnesium important? - gut health

Magnesium helps with everything from bone health to anxiety/stress. And since over 50% of American’s are deficient in magnesium maybe we should all seriously consider supplementing with magnesium..Low levels of magnesium are associated with digestive issues and migraines. Here are signs of magnesium deficiency: Muscle spasms Loss of appetite Nausea and vomiting Fatigue and weakness Constipation High blood pressure Acid reflux/heartburn Brain fog Irritability.My personal experience testing magnesium? I personally found that pairing Magnesium L-threonate with Quiet Serenity later in the day (and taking Magnesium L-Threonate with breakfast) helps me sleep and manage stress really well. .I find that magnesium...

Brain fog can be addressed through improved gut health - probiotics, cleanse, immunoglobulins

The first time I personally paid any attention to the usage of “brain fog” was when Tiffany said she no longer had it.⁠.⁠From my memory, one of the most noticeable things I remember Tiffany saying about doing better with her gut health had nothing to do with her gut health (or so I thought). At that time, I was not aware of how much the gut affects the brain.⁠.⁠When Tiffany aggressively started using the Gut Rehab Kit (Cleanse & Ultimate Probiotic) following some Hashimoto’s flares and hormone imbalances she was having her first sign that things were improving was the...

Relief when eating gluten or cross-contamination - gut health, celiac, gluten intolerance

There is a protein complex in wheat, barley and rye called proline. The human body struggles to break down proline-rich proteins. .Tolerase® G (found in Gluten Comfort) is a targeted digestive enzyme that helps break down proline-rich proteins.* It is the first enzyme shown to be effective in helping resolve gluten sensitivity.* Gluten Comfort can support the degradation of gluten in a way that mirrors the human gastrointestinal tract.*

An overreactive immune system can be just as bad as one that's not working - gut health, autoimmune, probiotics, prebiotics, cleanse

Allergies & asthma? Skin issues? Fatigue and headaches? How does the gut play into these issues? The answer is that the gut is directly linked to those issues. They are all linked to underlying gut problems such as bacteria imbalances (dysbiosis), leaky gut (increased intestinal permeability), inflammatory problems, AND an overworked immune system. .Therefore, the gut help solution to all of the signs of an overactive immune system is to correctly, effectively, and fundamentally correct the underlying issues driving gut problems..Here are my personal suggestions:🔷A. Start in the right spot for the individual’s gut problems▪️Step 1 - Address motility issues...

By changing the gut microbiome, food preferences can change - gut health, weight loss, probiotics, prebiotics

When I started the Boost Kit to try to reduce my belly fat (and total body fat), there appeared to be two trains of thought about diet. Both agreed that cutting unhealthy processed foods and treats was necessary. But then there appeared to be a divide after that as it pertained to other carbs. .A lot of my fit friends load up on protein and dramatically limit all sources of carbs. They do look good. No question. But was that necessary? Per the instructions of our dietitians and microbiologist I loaded up on fruit and vegetables. I didn’t cut all...

With the gut-sleep connection the door swings both ways.Gut health affects sleep and sleep affects gut health. In order to help both of them a person needs to address both of them with equal effort. .The gut and brain affect one another:▪️“…by regulating the production of essential neurotransmitters, like serotonin, which signals your brain cells to take certain actions.”▪️“A final way is through the vagus nerve, which connects your gut directly to your brain.

6 Reasons Silver Fern™ Brand is Different:Most start with the “Band-Aid” approach to gut problems because it is convenient, and they hope the issues will go away on their own. Sometimes this works.

6 Reasons Why Most People Don’t Succeed at Addressing Leaky Gut Issues:1️⃣ They start halfway through the process, not at the beginning2️⃣ They jump the gun and start with the wrong products because they have been told for years that the answer is to “always” get on a good probiotic and/or prebiotic3️⃣ They use maintenance doses to try to correct structural problems4️⃣ They are used to the “Band-Aid” approach of “fix it quick” as if structure issues get resolved in a 7-day window.

Correcting serious stomach issues requires a full remodeling: ▪️ Starting in the right spot with the right products (not assuming probiotics are the end all be all for gut health)▪️ Loading heavy upfront▪️ Consistency.The goal is to clean up everything and rebuild it to get to a maintenance phase.

SIBO issues can linger, with no end in sight. And isn’t it interesting how frequently SIBO and other issues overlap?.At Silver Fern™ Brand, we approach SIBO a bit differently than everyone else..Why might all these issues be overlapping? Because the underlying problems are the same..In many cases with gut health, probiotics and prebiotics are not the place to start EVEN IF THEY HAVE CLINICAL DATA SAYING THEY WORK GREAT AT ADDRESSING THOSE SPECIFIC ISSUES. .For issues like bacteria overgrowth, bad heartburn and reflux, persistent diarrhea and constipation, etc. the first part of the process isn’t to start with probiotics..Why are...

Hair loss or thin hair can absolutely be a sign of malnutrition/ digestive problems. This seems to be pretty much universally accepted with not a lot of contentious debate. ⁠.⁠The next step?

There are many issues associated with slow motility - constipation, bloating, gas, IBS, SIBO, GERD

So many issues are associated or linked with slow motility. It is because of this that we have most people start by addressing motility issues before jumping into probiotics or prebiotics. ⁠.⁠Why?⁠.⁠When motility is slow, bacteria and yeast can’t be cleared out properly. Motility affects gut bacteria diversity and composition. It affects the very core issues of gut health.⁠.⁠Many people have tried for years to address many of the listed issues without success. ⁠.⁠I am personally aware of how frustrating it is. My question is, “Were motility issues ever addressed or resolved?” If not, we have a very effective plan...

A true cleanse/detox should not cause diarrhea, but help calm it - gut health, cleanse, immunoglobulins, antibodies

A gut cleanse or detox should remove toxins. Where did the idea come from that a cleanse/detox product or system had to cause a laxative effect (aka a bowel flush)?.Isn’t the purpose of a cleanse/detox to remove toxins (literally). And shouldn’t a cleanse/detox make sense by actually removing real, specific toxins? .The body’s immune system removes toxins using immunoglobulins/ antibodies. The most common antibody is IgG. “IgG is always there to help prevent infections. It's also ready to multiply and attack when foreign substances get into the body. When you don't have enough, you are more likely to get infections.”(https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/conditions-and-diseases/igg-deficiencies#).Many people...

Correcting gut health can feel worse before it feels better. According to our science team, that’s the truth. .Short-term symptom solutions are probably a quick, feel-good method but correcting the underlying issues can be uncomfortable.There is a war going on in the gut. When the good side is losing, all sorts of health challenges occur (everything from digestive discomforts to skin irritations). .When a person dramatically starts correcting those issues, the bad side doesn’t suddenly surrender and go away peacefully.

AN-PEP enzymes help properly breakdown gluten in the stomach-gut health, gluten free, gluten intolerance, celiac

Gluten is a protein. When this protein is not properly broken down completely in the stomach it can cause reactions in the intestines. Therefore, it would stand to reason the solution would be to break down this protein rapidly in the stomach before it gets to the intestines and in a way that doesn’t cause the gut to flare up. .With common gluten enzymes, gluten-sensitive T-cells still react to digested gluten. Flare-ups happen. The AN-PEP enzyme is able to digest the immunogenic parts of gluten so that flare-ups don’thappen..For people with gluten autoimmune responses, they experience problems when the gluten...

What’s the difference in probiotics? This topic can be debated all over the place, but it is safe to say that not all types of probiotics are the same..Both types of probiotics may start alive and both types may administer benefits. But how they do so is abit different. (This is the position of our experts).Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium type strains (while still beneficial) won’t recondition the gut like true probiotics will because they are targeting specific benefits..For example, the B. longum 1714 strain in our Quiet Serenity product is targeted at biological stress and helping maintain normal cortisol levels.

  Bloating is the universal symptom for everything. Almost all digestive problems cause bloating. ⁠.⁠Whether the bloating is mild or severe it comes from the same underlying issues: foods aren’t processing normally and thoroughly enough to keep gas production down. ⁠.⁠And with motility issues (foods not processing at a normal speed), low stomach acid, and poor enzyme⁠production usually comes bacteria imbalances. ⁠.⁠With bacteria imbalances comes excessive gas⁠production.

Scared of probiotics because of past experience? Still nervous to take probiotics?

Bloating is caused by just about everything, how to tell what's causing it - gut health, probiotics, constipation, diarrhea, gas

Bloating may be one of the toughest stomach issues to address because it can be caused by almost every digestive issue. What causes bloating? Excessive intestinal gas. ⁠.⁠When bloating happens shortly after eating that’s usually a sign of digestive issues. Digestive issues can originate from everything like low stomach acid and slow motility to insufficient enzyme production and bacteria imbalances. ⁠.⁠People ask, “Can (fill in the blank) cause bloating?” a lot. The answer is “yes” because literally almost everything⁠causes bloating.⁠.⁠Here’s what I am trying to do with this post, I am trying to help people figure out on their own...

Many factors contribute to gut health but staying on top of it can make a huge difference - probiotics, prebiotics, cleanse, detxo

We constantly get two contradicting statements from people regarding gut health.⁠.⁠The first comment is something to the effect, “If people would get off their butts and stop being lazy, stop overeating all day, and eat healthy they wouldn’t have gut problems!”⁠.⁠The second comment or message is something like, “I live a very health life, and I have horrible gut issues. I eat healthy – lots of fruits and vegetables. I avoid artificial ingredients and sweeteners. I exercise daily and drink a lot of water. I don’t know what to do.”⁠.⁠Guess what? Stress, viruses and bad bacteria, mold toxins, environmental toxins,...

Our regimen for chronic diarrhea/loose stools - gut health, cleanse, immunoglobulins, antibodies, digestive enzymes

Our regimen for chronic diarrhea/loose stools - gut health, cleanse, immunoglobulins, antibodies, digestive enzymes

Gut health failure happens because people start in the wrong spot with the wrong products. This pertains to those with diarrhea and loose stools too. ⁠.⁠Why do I suggest these product protocols and steps? They work very well.⁠.⁠Why do I go beyond suggestions for diarrhea with this post? Because frequent diarrhea or loose stools⁠are usually a sign that something else is going on. ⁠.⁠Once we help address the diarrhea, I always suggest a⁠continue through to resolving the other instigators behind gut problems too.⁠

A gut healthy lifestyle can vastly improve gut health - probiotics, prebiotics, cleanse, detox, immunoglobulins, antibodies

A gut healthy lifestyle can vastly improve gut health - probiotics, prebiotics, cleanse, detox, immunoglobulins, antibodies

One of the purposes of our products is to help people compensate for stress, seasonal sicknesses, poor food choices, travel, alcohol, and life. Tiff and I have 5 kids. Sicknesses will happen. Stress will happen.Travel is going to happen. .We are constantly bombarded by things that can harm our gut health. We take the right products and do our best to follow healthy gut lifestyles most of the time and things go great. But products will not compensate for a high abundance of poor daily choices that harm the microbiome..Nursing a diet soda all day long isn’t great for gut...

Never ending constipation and how to get your bowels moving again - gut health, probiotics, magnesium, vitamins B1 & B12

Never ending constipation and how to get your bowels moving again - gut health, probiotics, magnesium, vitamins B1 & B12

This is a program I usually recommend for at least 90 days to make regularity “stick.”.If starting with severe constipation, after several weeks of a really high dose of 3-4 capsules of Upper GI Relief before each meal and once constipation is a thing of the past, dosing can be reduced to 2 capsules before each meal. The really high dosing is to get things moving a bit sooner..For both moderate and severe constipation problems the goal is to be able to reduce the dosing for themagnesium and other vitamins to normal daily doses over several weeks as well. Because...

Beating heartburn & acid reflux - gut health, upper GI Relief, indigestion

Beating heartburn & acid reflux - gut health, upper GI Relief, indigestion

A lot of people ask about heartburn and reflux each day. A lot. ⁠.⁠Here’s my personal formula/program for addressing⁠these issues. This formula works for most people and works very well. ⁠.⁠Because each person is different, the dosing needs to be worked out on a per person basis (especially with the Betaine HCL). I’d suggest starting low with Betaine HCL and working up (start at 100 mg and gradually increase).⁠.⁠The ginger in Upper GI Relief has a high dose of Gingerols in it (20% compared to 5% found in most products). Occasionally, some can’t handle the high amount of ginger but...

Where to start if you have ALL the symptoms - gut health, probiotics, prebiotics, constipation, diarrhea, heartburn, reflux, etc.

Here’s for the “I have it all” people (meaning a wide variety of stomach issues and problems). ⁠.⁠This post is for cases with a combination of several or all the issues mentioned in the post (constipation, diarrhea, heartburn, reflux, nausea, bloating, etc.). It is a short-term, heavy, load-up on supplements to help knock the issues out and be done with them. The dosing is high, but it works. Once the gut is doing well, it only S to tarting be maintained (and dosing can be dramatically lowered).⁠.⁠Step 1 is for people with a combination of these issues is to address...
