We all have that underlying health issue we ignore but silently struggle with. Whether it is your gut health not keeping up with you and sluggishly moving along, or maybe it’s your mind that feels like it can’t keep up with you. Maybe you struggle with your metabolism or hormonal issues that cause your skin to age faster than you feel like it should be (don’t we all). Of course, we can eat right, stay hydrated, and get a good amount of movement in our bodies throughout our day, but sometimes we all need a little boost. This is where Zuma can help you feel your best. With sustainable and eco-friendly supplements, Zuma Nutrition is here to help you with a large range of health issues that you might need aiding.

By taking a quick, easy, and free survey, Zuma will help you find the supplements that are specifically tailored to you to help you find what you’ve been looking for.
Specifically, Zuma has now introduced their Complete GI Protocol. With the set for Restoring your Microbial Balance and Healing a Leaky Gut the essential tools for removing harmful toxins and gut pathogens, recolonizing the gut with beneficial bacteria, repairing the intestinal barrier, and enhancing digestive health. A toxic gut environment causes inflammation and allows harmful organisms like Candida and parasites to grow out of control. Health professionals agree that 80 percent of your immune tissue is located in your digestive tract. The digestive tract is the first line of defense against pathogens and toxins that enter your body. Your intestines form a protective barrier between your bloodstream and the external world. If this barrier is compromised, it allows toxins to attack your immune system, allowing for the development of numerous health issues. Impaired digestive health can lead to poor nutrient absorption. This can cause tiredness, brain fog, and mood disorders. Parasites can also release toxins in the gut and steal your nutrients, making you even more tired as your body fights off the infection.
Here are the steps to Zuma’s 4 Step Protocol to help heal your gut.
Step 1: Rebuild the Gut Microbe Environment with Multi-Strain Probiotics
One of the most important steps to start reevaluating your health is to rebuild your foundation. Probiotics can help you rebuild a healthy environment in your gut and can also strengthen your immune system and play an important role in digestive health. Zuma Nutrition’s Multi-Strain Probiotic Complex features 30 billion CFUs and eight unique strains that promote the strains of bacteria in the gut. Included in this professional-grade probiotic formula are both lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidobacteria
and their numerous species that colonize both the upper and lower bowel.
Step 2: Feeding the Beneficial Bacteria
Prebiotics are indigestible fibers that feed probiotics. They act as food for the beneficial bacteria in your gut and allow their populations to grow and thrive. Arabinogalactan, a starch-like chemical extracted from the larch tree, is among the most beneficial prebiotics promoting the growth of the probiotic bacteria Lactobacilli and bifidobacteria. The many benefits of arabinogalactan include boosting the immune system and helping prevent cancer cells in the liver from growing. This supplement will help the good bacteria that your intestines need thrive better by gaining the healthy ingredients it has been craving for.
Step 3: Repairing the Damaged Gut Tissue
This next supplement in the GI Protocol is a nutrient called colostrum. Colostrum contains hormones, enzymes, complex sugars, and growth factors that speed up the growth and healing of tissue. This nutrient also stimulates the growth and repair of every organ, gland, and tissue in the body, and also strengthens the immune system. Colostrum is a breast fluid produced by humans, cows, and other mammals before breast milk is released. This nutrient contains high levels of antibodies, which are proteins that fight infections and bacteria. It can help with things like promoting immunity, helping fight infections, and improving gut health throughout life. Colostrum also has the enzyme peroxidase which destroys disease-carrying microbes, and lactoferrin to neutralize certain strains of harmful bacteria. This protocol will help repair the damaged tissue that can cause the digestive distress you are experiencing. It will also prep the tissues in your intestines to be repaired by the next protocol.
Step 4: Rebuilding the Gut Lining
The supplement that contributes to this last and final step in the GI Protocol is Butyric Acid. Butyric Acid is a powerful compound that helps the body produce short-chain fatty acids, heals the lining of the stomach, small intestine, and large intestines, repairs damage from bacteria and fungal infections, and supports the immune system. It’s one of the three most common SCFAs in your gut, along with acetic acid and propionic acid. SCFAs are saturated fatty acids that are created when friendly bacteria break down dietary fiber. The primary health benefits of butyric acid and other SCFAs are their ability to provide your colon cells with energy. Butyric acid provides your colon cells with about 70 percent trusted source of their total energy needs. It can aid in symptoms from issues like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and Crohn’s disease. Butyric acid then helps to repair the damage to the intestinal membrane and helps reduce inflammation.
