It’s no secret that eating a rainbow of fruits and vegetables is good for your health. But when it comes to being able to utilize nutrients from the foods you eat, the science isn’t so simple. The latest research shows that a healthy microbiome — especially a healthy gut lining — is critical to your body’s ability to absorb nutrients. And here’s where it gets even more complicated: Consuming phytonutrients is a key factor in supporting a balanced microbiome.
In other words, eating fruits and vegetables helps support a healthy gut, but you need a healthy gut to get maximum benefits from the fruits and vegetables you eat. Quite the “chicken or the egg” scenario, it seems. So how do you help keep such a complex system in balance?
Read on to find out which lifestyle habits affect gut health, a way to support your microbiome and which phytonutrient formulas to choose for wellness like you’ve never felt before.
YOUR MICROBIOME: THE MASTER SWITCH TO WELLNESS
Your body is a complex ecosystem, home to an estimated 38 trillion living microorganisms —mostly bacteria. This microbiome resides mainly in your gut but goes far beyond supporting a healthy digestive system. It can profoundly impact your overall health. In fact, some scientists refer to your microbiome as your master switch to wellness. Here are just a few of the areas it affects:
- Gastrointestinal health
- Gut barrier integrity
- Micronutrient synthesis
- Immune function
- Brain and cognitive health
- Overall wellbeing and energy
In other words, the health of your microbiome plays a major factor in how good you feel day to day. And there are several ways you can support it, including:
- Getting enough sleep
- Eating healthy food
- Limiting alcohol intake
- Staying hydrated
- Protecting your immune system
- Prioritizing self-care
- Avoiding environmental toxins
The bacteria that inhabit your microbiome are extremely sensitive to lifestyle habits and external pollutants, meaning that if you’re stressed out, tired and dehydrated, or relying on junk food for fuel, it throws off the delicate balance of bacteria — especially in your gut. This spells trouble for your gut lining, which is responsible as a barrier to toxins and regulating nutrient absorption into the bloodstream.
Without a healthy microbiome, you’re likely not getting optimal nutrients from the foods you eat.
Modere Axis™, our premium line of nutritional supplements for overall wellness, targets microbiome health two ways:
First, with an exclusive matrix of pre-, pro- and postbiotics that supports gut health, micronutrient synthesis, brain and cognitive health, immune heath and microbiome diversity.*
Second, with three highly bioactive and bioavailable phytonutrient formulas that support digestive, heart and immune health, as well as overall energy, vitality and antioxidant capacity.*
This doctor-recommended line delivers scientifically studied, clean label ingredients in delicious and convenient formulas designed to supplement even the healthiest (or unhealthiest) routines for maximum benefits felt in nearly every major system of the body.
“Supplementing with Modere Axis™ TreBiotic with Microbiome Matrix™ — a perfectly paired formula of pre-, pro- and postbiotics — promotes a healthy microbiome and gut lining, laying the foundation for optimal nutrient synthesis. Adding in plant-based phytonutrients can take your overall wellness to the next level.”*— Dr. Lisa DeRosimo, MD, MS§ Diplomate, American Board of Obesity Medicine
MODERE AXIS™ TREBIOTIC WITH MICROBIOME MATRIX™
You’ve likely heard of probiotics before and maybe even currently take one, but scientific studies show that probiotics are even more beneficial when taken with a prebiotic and postbiotic. Modere Axis TreBiotic contains all three, and they’re perfectly paired for optimal benefits — meaning the probiotics inside Axis TreBiotic are scientifically shown to be more effective when paired with the prebiotic inside Axis TreBiotic and supported by our postbiotic.
Here’s a closer look:
Prebiotics are food sources for probiotic bacteria. Having a prebiotic in your gut health formula can help healthy levels of good bacteria populate faster and with greater density. GOS prebiotic is an ideal food source for L. plantarum DR7 found in our NeuroFlora™ Probiotic Complex and is scientifically shown in an in-vitro study to help this bacteria rapidly and efficiently populate the gut, so you see and feel benefits sooner.*
NEUROFLORA™ PROBIOTIC COMPLEX
When it comes to probiotics, some formulas opt to include as many strains or as high of a probiotic count as they can, suggesting that more probiotics equates to a superior product. In reality, ideal probiotic formulas don’t need a lot of probiotics to be effective. Seeking out highly studied bacteria strains documented to provide a wide range of benefits tends to yield better results for most people. NeuroFlora Probiotic Complex is an exclusive blend of highly studied L. plantarum DR7, L. brevis and P. acidilactici bacteria that go above and beyond gut health to also support immune function, cognitive health and overall wellness.*
EPICOR® GI+ POSTBIOTIC
Postbiotics are bioactive compounds generated from prebiotics and probiotics during fermentation. Having a postbiotic in your gut health formula helps optimize its benefits. Our one-of-a-kind postbiotic, EpiCor GI+, is a whole food fermentate backed by 15 scientific studies. It supports healthy levels of butyrate and helps reinforce a protective gut lining to optimize immune health and nutrient synthesis.*
These three ingredients form the exclusive Microbiome Matrix™ found in Axis TreBiotic. Taken daily, each scoop of tiny beadlets is ideally suited for supporting a balanced microbiome, as part of a healthy lifestyle. Maintaining a microbiome well populated with good bacteria helps optimize micronutrient synthesis, so you get maximum nutritional benefits from your diet.*
PHYTONUTRIENTS AND YOUR DIET
Phytonutrients are compounds found in plants, where they regulate good and bad bacteria and help filter damaging free radicals like those found in UV rays. You may have heard of the most popular groups of phytonutrients, like antioxidants — including heart-friendly resveratrol, flavonoids or curcumin found in ginger and turmeric. Collectively, there are over 25,000 different phytonutrient compounds offered across a broad spectrum of plant-based foods, and they contain up to 64 times more antioxidants than animal-based foods.
Unfortunately, it takes more than an apple a day to reap the benefits of phytonutrients. Recent research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicates that only 1 in 10 people eat enough fruits and vegetables. What’s more, even if you meet daily recommendations, you may not be getting optimal benefits, especially if your microbiome is out of balance.
Plant-based phytonutrient supplements not only fill in the gaps when your daily fruit and vegetable intake lags, they can also help provide additional support to your microbiome. Studies show that consuming phytonutrients can help alter and improve gut health and help support:
- Immune health*
- Heart health*
- Nutrient synthesis
- Cognitive function*
- Microbiome diversity*
The more phytonutrients your body can utilize, the better you’ll feel.
