Today, research shows that many causes of deteriorating health can be connected back to inflammation or irritation triggered by an unhealthy digestive system. This not only leads to illness, but uncomfortable symptoms like belly bloat and digestive discomfort. Belly Fix is doctor-formulated with coconut medium chain triglycerides which support satiety, helping fight cravings and promote the beneficial gut flora. Plus, a mighty digestive blend of bioavailable turmeric and ginger to modulate inflammation, and natural probiotics for healthy bacterial balance. Belly Fix takes optimal digestive support one step further with spirulina and superfood greens, including alfalfa and barley grass, providing micronutrients and chlorophyll to support the body’s natural detoxification pathways. Finally, collagen peptides support continued gut health by providing targeted amino acids for the health of tight junction proteins within the lining of the gut.
Coconut MCT (Medium Chain Triglyceride) Oil Powder possesses the unique molecular length allowing it to be quickly absorbed and used for energy without the use of enzymatic activity to enter the cell (1). MCTs are diffused into the liver, bypassing standard digestion, where they have a thermogenic effect and play a role in the healthful use of fats for fuel (1). Efficient utilization of fats promotes satiety and reduced cravings. Fatty acids naturally occurring in medium chain triglycerides have been shown to support healthy bacterial balance in the gut, promoting energy expenditure and metabolism (1).
Digestive Blend –Turmeric Rhizome, Ginger Root, Yeast (Saccharomyces Boulardii) – A truly complete digestive powerhouse harnesses the increased bioavailability with turmeric and ginger, two critical nutrients for inflammation modulation within the gut (2). Turmeric has been shown to support the gut microbiome, intestinal integrity, and the health of tight-junction proteins which play a role in the development of intestinal hyperpermeability or ‘leaky gut’ (3). Ginger and its phenolic compounds, 6-Gingerol and 6-Shoagal, promote normal digestive emptying and gut comfort (4). Ginger and turmeric both play a significant role in the body’s healthy inflammatory response within the digestive system (3)(4).
Bovine Collagen Peptides are rich in specific amino acids often lacking in the typical Western diet that comprise connective tissue in the gut and elsewhere in the body. Collagen matrices within the body provide elasticity, flexibility, and hydration necessary for proper tissue function inside the body and out. Collagen is naturally high in the amino acid glycine, proline, and glutamine that maintain specialized functions in the body, such as building healthy DNA strands, and promoting the integrity of the intestinal lining (5). Additional L-Glutamine supports continued collagen production in the gut to maintain a healthy intestinal lining (6).
Grass Blend – Barley Grass, Alfalfa Grass, Oat Grass. Oat and alfalfa grasses are rich in phytonutrients, including the flavonoid tricin, which plays a role in the normal relaxation of smooth muscle in the gut, promoting gut comfort (7). Greens contain an impressive spectrum of alkalizing enzymes, and vitamins, including vitamin K, vitamin C, and folate. Cereal greens also contain phytonutrients like chlorophyll which promotes the function of natural detoxification pathways (8).
Spirulina boasts over 2,000 published articles outlining the vast benefits of this blue-green algae superfood. Spirulina contains amino acids which facilitate normal digestive function, and the health of immune cells, in addition to abundant vitamin and mineral content (9).
