Americans want to live the healthiest lives they can. Therefore, many health problems receive a great deal of attention in the media (think cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer). However, one area of health does not receive sufficient attention.
Simply put, the United States has a gut problem, and no one is talking about it. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 14.8 million Americans are diagnosed with ulcers, representing 5.9% of the adult population. And that’s just one type of digestive disorder. Also according to the CDC, Americans seek doctors’ help for digestive ailments to the tune of 37.2 million visits each year (and receive at those visits diagnoses for digestive ailments). Americans also seek help at emergency rooms for digestive-related emergencies to the tune of 7.9 million visits each year. Those alarming numbers alone are enough to give us indigestion!
Why The Gut?
There are several reasons why digestive-related health problems are on the rise. From ulcers to acid reflux, liver failure to colon problems, insulin resistance to improper blood flow through the digestive system, for as many unique digestive maladies the American people face (of which there are hundreds), there are just as many, if not more, causes for such disorders. However, one can draw a direct line between the declining quality of the American diet & food sources in general and the rapid increase in the gut & digestive health problems.
Quoting one research paper, “Whether eating out or buying food from the grocery store, Americans of all ages are, for the most part, eating poorly everywhere. The information comes from a new dietary trends study, which also reveals persistent or worsening disparities in meal quality from restaurants, grocery stores, and other sources.”
Another study compared American food to European food, with European nations having tighter regulations and higher standards on food than American regulations & standards. That study had some concerning findings, mainly that most American foods would not be considered fit for human consumption in several European nations. Baffling, to say the least.
Raw Organic Kamut® Wheatgrass — A Natural Boost to Good Gut Health
When the food available to us today is significantly less healthy than it was 30-50 years ago, Americans must do two things:
- Become educated about the foods they’re buying, and take responsibility to purchase only quality, unprocessed foods.
- Add nutritional supplements to their daily diet to ensure they consume the necessary nutrients for a healthy & well body.
Raw Organic Kamut® Wheatgrass has the potential to improve adverse health conditions related to inflammation in the digestive system. Common conditions include irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), aka ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease, with symptoms of abdominal pain, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, bloody stool, ulcers, bed sores, skin conditions, anemia, whole body fatigue & fever, eye inflammation, liver & kidney disorders, bone loss, etc. Because of the inflammation in the digestive system, your body cannot absorb all the nutrients it needs.
Further, wheatgrass is rich in chlorophyll, which helps cleanse the intestines, detox the blood and improve its flow, as well as energize the body and stimulate the immune system. Important to note, 70% of the immune system is located in the gut. More than 2,400 years ago, Hippocrates, an ancient Greek physician of the Classical period who is considered one of the most outstanding figures in the history of medicine and regarded as “The Father of Modern Medicine,” suggested all disease begins in the gut. Understandably, maintaining a healthy happy gut is crucial to overall health & wellness.
Immune Solution’s Raw Organic Kamut® Wheatgrass – Juice Powder boasts many evidence-based benefits, and countless customers have applauded its helping manage & overcome their digestive ailments & maladies.
However, as many experts have pointed out, no nutritional supplement, no matter how beneficial, should be seen as a replacement for a healthy, balanced diet. By definition, “to supplement” is “to complete or enhance when added to” — not “to replace.” That said, know wheatgrass has the potential to work dietary wonders and greatly improve the health of those who take a daily organic wheatgrass juice powder supplement, but such products are best used in conjunction with a healthy, whole-food diet. That’s why it’s so important Americans take full responsibility for their health, ensuring they’re putting together a healthy & mixed diet every day.
Immune Solution’s Raw Organic Kamut® Wheatgrass – Juice Powder is not sweetened with artificial sweeteners or additives, and it has no chemicals, dyes, or preservatives that much American food today has. Instead, this juice powder is organic wheatgrass combined with a small amount of oat & alfalfa to give the blend a pleasant, sweet taste; this combination also serves to increase the mineral & trace mineral content. And did we mention it is naturally gluten-free? Yes, it truly is.
