If you know how the gut works, you know that everything begins with it. Whether it’s simply how you feel throughout the day or how your skin and hair looks, it all roots down to how you feed and nurture your gut.
Most of the time we ingest food without even thinking about it, and while you may think it doesn’t affect you, your body feels otherwise. It’s time to start listening to your body as your gut is basically your second brain as it can have an effect on how you feel and look from the inside and out. Also did you know, 90% of Serotonin aka happy hormones are made in the gut?
Introducing Pernille Jensen, founder and naturopath behind The Gut Cø. Pernille has been researching the gut microbiome and the relationship between gut function and the rest of the body for the past twelve years. As well as continuously educating herself on the latest research, she has been educating every patient who has walked through her door on the importance of gut health and how it relates to being healthy and having a strong immune system and beautiful, glowing skin.
“The Gut Cø is about helping people live their lives to the fullest and feel amazing at the same time. It’s about balance and finding ways to fit a commitment to health into your daily life. It doesn’t have to be difficult and require breaking all your ‘bad’ habits in one go, it’s about adding in good habits as well.” says Pernille.
Over her years of practicing, Pernille grew increasingly frustrated with the lack of high potency and quality gut products out on the market which is why she decided to create a product range that contains high quality and scientifically backed ingredients that yields results.
The Gut Cø products are a culmination of years of experience and knowledge as well as a whole year spent formulating and sourcing high potency, sustainable ingredients that dissolve easily while tasting delicious. Each product is bio-available (which means they are easily absorbable), highly effective, and is formulated without GMO ingredients, soy, gluten, grains, synthetic flavours or colours. How amazing.
A complete, naturopathically formulated super-powder of ‘skin-vitamins’ designed to aid in skin health and strengthen hair and nails. It also aids in strengthening the gut lining which contains 70% of the immune system and we know that preventing leaky gut reduces inflammation, which is the culprit of skin issues and chronic illnesses.
I’ve tried so many health-related products that while they may seep great benefits to the body, are just unbearable to drink… which I believe is also a factor as to why people shy away from supplements. It was a wonderful surprise that REPAIR tastes absolutely delicious to drink – must be all the superfood berries inside!
A proprietary blend of naturopathically formulated and scientifically proven dosages of prebiotics and probiotics. Replenish the good bacteria in your gut by feeding it the clinically trialled dosages needed to achieve results – without causing bloating.
FEED is virtually tasteless and can be taken in plain water, added to your tea or coffee or added to your smoothie or protein shaker.
I also want to add that The Gut Cø has created beautifully designed refillable vessels you can purchase to keep your supplements inside. Not only are they sustainable as they are ceramic, but they look gorgeous as a bench top decoration too – you’ll definitely want these on display.
Both REPAIR and FEED are FODMAP approved and can be taken by people with IBS. These two beautifully created powders target the healing and repairing of the gut first and foremost and a bi-product of this is improved skin, hair and nails. P.S I highly recommend heading over to The Gut Cø’s website to dive deep into the thoughtful ingredients of both REPAIR and FEED to discover and understand all the vast benefits inside.
