Renew Life wants you to be your best self and have the guts to tackle whatever lies ahead. Whether it’s skydiving or simply paying back for a stranger’s coffee. That’s why we’re issuing the Guts & Glory 14-Day Challenge.
The gut is considered the core of your body’s overall health and well-being and can affect your entire body, including immunity, digestion and more! However, if your gut is out of whack, chances are you aren’t feeling your best — therefore, you can’t be your best.
Welcome! Thanks for committing to the Renew Life Guts & Glory 14-Day Gut Challenge. We hope these next two weeks bring balance to your gut and inspire you to live the life you’ve always dreamed of. We’ll be here every step of the way, so check back daily for new tips.
Guts are not the source of your problem; they are the source of your potential. The “gut” is considered the core of your body’s overall health and well-being and can affect your entire body, including immunity, digestion and more.
Schedule a new activity you’ve been wanting to try. Always had a love for painting? Or itching to try a new spin class? Put it on your calendar and hold yourself to the appointment.
When you first start taking probiotic supplements, you may develop gas and bloating in the first few days. Symptoms should be mild, and they generally go away after two to three days of use.
Pay it forward. It takes guts to show kindness to a stranger. Whether it’s a smile on the street, holding a door open or paying for the coffee of the customer behind you in line, take a moment to do something nice for someone you don’t know today.
There are more than 100 trillion bacterial cells inside your digestive tract that can be easily disrupted by stress, diet, aging, certain medications and even the environment.
We often say “yes” to everything asked of us - to the point that we’re stretching ourselves too thin. Since stress can disrupt the balance inside your digestive tract, try saying “no” to the next request you receive. We don’t judge here.
Nearly a quarter of women (22 percent) don’t consider the status of their digestive health when they think about their overall health and wellness.
Bold new lipstick? High-waisted jeans? Give it a try. Tell yourself this doesn’t have to be your style mantra for eternity. Give yourself the freedom to try something different. What’s one day of a new you?! It could be a change you like!
70% of the immune system is located in the intestinal tract, therefore, maintaining gut health is a key part of maintaining your immune and overall health.
Boost your senses, uplift your mood and prepare yourself to take on your ultimate challenge by starting with a small one...dare to take a cold shower!
Signs that your gut is in need of replenishment and balance can include occasional bloating, constipation, diarrhea, fatigue, headaches and weight gain. Upon hearing these symptoms, 72 percent of American women report that they have experienced occasional digestive issues in the past 12 months.
You’re halfway through the 14-Day Gut Challenge now and one week away from your glory! Go ahead and do a happy dance out in the open!
While historically nutritionists recommend food first for all vitamin consumption, many people do not consume enough quantities of foods that are high in probiotic cultures, such as kimchi, sauerkraut, kefir, and yogurt. So, in the case of probiotics - supplements are an effective every day method for delivering the right amount of probiotics needed to help support balance in the digestive tract and replenish the good bacteria found in a naturally diverse and healthy gut.
When is the last time you ate kimchi, sauerkraut or kefir? Add one of these probiotic-rich foods to your diet today, in addition to your probiotic supplement, to help support balance in the digestive tract and replenish the good bacteria found in a naturally diverse and healthy gut.
During your next coffee date with friends, don’t be surprised if political points-of-view and relationship issues come up before one’s occasional constipation, gas or diarrhea, as more women would be willing to talk about unpopular opinions (49 percent) with their friends than gut issues (36 percent).
You know what’s gutsy? Talking about your gut. Tell one friend today how your gut affects your daily life and do your part to banish the taboo reputation of this topic so we can start talking about the solutions to feel better.
One-third of women (34 percent) report that they don’t clearly understand the role probiotics play in the body. Let’s break it down. Your gut is home to many bacteria, both good and bad. Probiotics provide good bacteria that live in your gut and help to keep your digestive and immune systems balanced.
Who do you admire for their guts? Is it someone famous or someone close to you? Take a minute and think about what they do that inspires you (and if you can, tell them why!).
In addition to taking a probiotic supplement, there are simple, everyday activities that support healthy digestion, such as eating a healthy diet, including probiotic-rich foods, drinking plenty of water, staying physically active and managing stress.
Fake it till you make it. Do you get nervous speaking in public? Are you afraid of traveling alone? What scares you? Imagine you are fearless the next time you are in a nerve-wracking situation. Pretending to be confident just may make you gutsy.
To get all of the good-for-your-gut benefits from a probiotic, you should look for a potent probiotic that contains billions of live cultures and with multiple diverse strains of Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli - the good bacteria found most often in a healthy gut.
Stand up. Whether making a public display of your beliefs or donating anonymously to a cause close to your heart, support something you feel strongly about.
Dine alone. Sit down with a meal without any armor - no phone, no computer, no book, no TV, no wingman. Pay attention to the way your food tastes and recognize when you get full. Stopping eating when you are satiated, not stuffed, is one of the top tips nutritionists give to their clients for a happy gut.
