Gut health is so important, and yet it's something that we often neglect. Our gut health can impact digestion, energy levels and even the clarity of our skin. As this can have a major impact on our overall health, it's time to start taking care of our gut! Featured on Channel 10's hit TV show 'Shark Tank', the Supercharged Food Love Your Gut Powder (formerly called Heal Your Gut Powder) is the perfect way to make sure your body is performing optimally. Created by gut health expert Lee Holmes, this powder has an incredibly long list of benefits.
What is the active ingredient in Supercharged Food Love Your Gut Powder?
The active ingredient in the Love Your Gut Powder is Diatomaceous Earth, also known as Fossil Shell Flour. Under a microscope, Diatomaceous Earth looks like honeycomb, full of holes. It has a strong negative charge, allowing it to move through the stomach and digestive tract and attract and absorb nasties.
Top 10 Benefits of Love Your Gut Powder
1. It gently cleanses your digestive system
As Diatomaceous Earth passes through your body it attracts and removes toxins and impurities found in your digestive system. This includes anything from bacteria to heavy metals.
2. It increases nutrient absorption
Using the Love Your Gut Powder helps create an unburdened digestive system. With all of the bad stuff removed from your digestive tract, nutrients are more easily absorbed into your body.
3. It increases your hydration levels
In the same way that clearing out your digestive system allows for greater nutrient absorption, it also allows your body to better absorb and retain hydration, which we all know is essential for good health.
4. It helps with weight management, particularly around the tummy
Many people use the Love Your Gut Powder for weight loss as waste is more effectively disposed of. If your body is getting much better nutrient absorption, this can also reduce unhealthy cravings for sugar and carbs.
5. It reduces bloating, wind and gas
By cleansing your digestive system of build-up and bad bacteria, this detoxifying can actually decrease any bloating issues caused by these nasties.
6. It can help maintain healthy energy levels
Once your bloating and digestive issues are resolved, it won't be long until you start feeling less sluggish and more energetic! Feeling lethargic can often be attributed to gut issues, which can leave you fatigued and affect your everyday lifestyle.
7. It gently removes waste
One of the most common symptoms of an out of balance digestive system is constipation. This anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal powder helps to alleviate these issues and regulate your bowel movements.
8. It helps to remove bad bacteria and parasites
The Diatomaceous Earth found in the Love Your Gut Powder may be effective in removing parasites in the digestive system. If you're not sure whether you have parasites, some common symptoms for women include fatigue, grinding your teeth while you sleep and itchy ears and noses.

9. It contains 15 valuable minerals
This naturopathic grade, organic Fossil Shell Flour contains 15 minerals that are beneficial to your overall health and wellbeing, including Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc and Iron. Having been first detoxified, your body may be able to absorb these minerals much more effectively.
10. As a food it is safe for children to use
