Healthy Gut, Healthy Men

It’s estimated that about 4 million people in the U.S. have frequent constipation, with many of these being men. Add frequent gas, belching, and bloating to this mix and there’s a good chance that the underlying problem is an imbalanced gut.

The gut, or microbiome as it’s often referred to, is essentially the gastrointestinal system, including the intestines. When it comes to symptoms like constipation, gas, belching, and bloating, it’s the intestines where everything begins.

Scientists are coming to realize that one of the most important things you can do for your health is to keep your gut in balance. What researchers have found: A healthy, balanced gut doesn’t just help us to digest food, it also keeps our immune system strong. That’s because 70 to 80 percent of our immune cells live in the gut.

A healthy gut is also important to maintaining a healthy weight. And it’s key to maintaining optimal health and longevity.

Five Steps to a Healthier Gut

Daily exercise, putting relaxation strategies in place, and getting plenty of sleep all go a long way to staying balanced overall, which can also contribute to a healthier gut—and optimal health.

  • Clear Out Your Gut

    If you’re backed up, you need to get things moving again before you can get your gut back on track. This isn’t always easy to do on your own.

    That’s why NBPure’s gut cleanse MagO7 is a bestselling constipation relief product. It works overnight to give guaranteed relief come morning.

    MagO7 contains a proprietary mix of ozonated magnesium oxide compounds with the added electrolyte potassium. Magnesium oxide has been proven to work through independent research.

  • Eat More Whole Foods, Limit Processed Foods

    Processed foods like packaged meals, fast food, and sugary treats—as well as alcohol—can contribute to gut health problems.

    Whole foods, on the other hand, help to nourish a healthy, balanced gut. This includes lean protein, fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains like brown rice, nuts and seeds, and healthy fats.

  • Get Enough Probiotics

    Be sure you’re getting probiotics, or healthy bacteria, every day. By adding probiotics to your diet every day, you’re ensuring that there are more beneficial bacteria in your gut than unhealthy bacteria. It’s the unhealthy bacteria that can contribute to symptoms like bloating and gas and make us not feel great.

    While foods like yogurt and sauerkraut have healthy bacteria in them, you may not be getting enough. That’s why adding healthy probiotics into your gut through daily supplements like our own Poobiotics can help.

  • Get Enough Fiber Every Day

    90% of Americans—with many of these being men—don’t get enough fiber. Men need at least 38 grams of fiber every day. It’s fiber that keeps the digestive system and gut in balance, preventing constipation. Fiber is also important to maintaining healthy cholesterol and blood glucose levels.

    Foods high in fiber include fruits and vegetables, whole grains like oatmeal, seeds like flaxseeds, and beans and legumes. Taking a daily fiber supplement can help you meet your daily goal.

    Our Daily Multi-Fiber offers 4 grams of fiber per teaspoon (just mix well into water) plus probiotics and prebiotics (to help nourish beneficial bacteria).

  • Stay Hydrated

    Getting enough water can help the gut stay balanced—and keep things running smoothly to prevent constipation. Men need at least 15.5 cups of water daily. Plain water helps hydrate as can herbal tea and hydrating fruits and vegetables like cucumbers, lettuce, and watermelon.
