Love your guts... your gut health, I mean! This next episode of our Nourished Life podcast is a gut health special – learn everything you need to know about how to improve gut health naturally with the amazing benefits of food grade diatomaceous earth.
Gut health sure is on our minds a lot these days, and it's not hard to find out why. Gut issues are actually experienced by a lot of us – according to the Gut Foundation Australia, half of the Australian population complains of some kind of digestive problem each year. My personal gut health journey changed drastically a few years ago when I discovered Supercharged Food. I started taking the Love Your Gut Powder and have never looked back since, so for this episode of our Nourished Life podcast, I'm doing a gut health special with Lee Holmes, a wholefoods chef, health & nutrition coach, published author of nine books, and the creator of this bestselling gut powder, made from nothing but pure diatomaceous earth (DE).
In Episode 5 of Talking Clean with Irene, Lee explains everything we need to know about diatomaceous earth, a mysterious white powder which sounds like some kind of prehistoric time period, right?! She takes us through all the benefits of DE and the science behind how it works, as well as the best time to take it and even how to hide it in the kids' dinners. Lee even answers our big questions, including whether it's safe to breathe in diatomaceous earth powder. Despite her expert knowledge on nutrition and gut health, Lee keeps it nice and simple, guiding us through the basics of loving our guts naturally.
