Focusing on gut health is a foundation for overall wellness. The gut microbiome impacts our physical and mental health.

What is a gut reset protocol?

In an eye opening podcast episode, Nathalie Niddam is joined by Dr. Alexis Cowan from LayerOrigin to discuss a Gut Reset Protocol.

The Gut Reset Protocol is designed to not only alleviate gut issues but to also heal the gut over time, reducing inflammation throughout the body.

Almost anyone can benefit from this Gut Reset Protocol, regardless of their current gut health status. This is primarily because modern food production practices and ingredients contribute to widespread gut health issues.

The protocol is based on the premise that targeting gut health can have wide-reaching effects on overall health, including other systems in the body.

The Gut Reset Protocol targets improving gut health by leveraging the synergistic effects of three specific ingredients: Human Milk Olligosaccharides (HMOs), Red Polyphenols and Apple Peel powder:

  • Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMOs): These are beneficial for healing the gut by feeding specific beneficial bacteria, particularly Bifidobacteria. Bifidobacteria play a crucial role in gut health, including reducing inflammation and supporting a healthy immune system. HMOs can be transformative for anyone's gut health, regardless of symptoms.

  • Simple Reds PolyPhenol Powder: Derived from various red fruits, this powder feeds both Bifidobacteria and another beneficial bacterium called Akkermansia. Akkermansia is important for maintaining the integrity of the gut lining and has been linked to improved metabolic health and reduced inflammation.

  • Apple Peel Powder: Contains compounds that specifically feed Akkermansia. The inclusion of apple peel powder in the diet can help optimize the gut microbiome, leading to a reduction in inflammation and an improvement in gut barrier function.

It takes 10-15 years or prediabetes before clinical Type 2 diabetes is typically diagnosed. That is to say, it takes years of overconsumption of simple carbs, processed foods combined with a high stress (sympathetic-dominant) lifestyle. It's a long process with plenty of time to intervene using something as simple as 410mg of magnesium a day, before the body (and mind) break down irreversibly.
