I have been finding out lots about probiotics and gut health and the direct link this has to health thanks to the Silver Fern Elevated Plan.
The Elevated Plan is free for all to access here. It’s a simple to use guide that can be used alongside your current diet plan that helps you introduce probiotics into your diet.
The aim of the Elevate Plan is to improve your gut health which in turn, reduces sugar cravings, speeds up your metabolism and makes you feel great and energised.
What I love most about this plan is how educational it is. I had no idea that gut bacteria can actually determine if someone is overweight or not. Or that the bad bacteria in our tummies cause sugar cravings!
The amazing thing is that by implementing the steps highlighted in the Elevated Plan you can actually supercharge your metabolism and gut bacteria to reach your health goals.
The Elevated Plan includes 7 easy to follow steps to help you reach your diet and health goals.
Follow your current eating plan
The first step is to follow your normal diet/eating plan exactly as it is. Whether you’re a Vegan or follow a high protein diet, that’s completely fine, you will still find results as long as you follow the other steps. Pretty easy so far!
The second step is taking high quality effective probiotics. Such as the Silver Fern Ultimate Probiotic Supplement and Wai Probiotic Drink Mixes these include Bacillius strain probiotics, which are the only supplemental probiotics shown to create short chain fatty acids (SCFAs) which work to boost your metabolism.
As someone who eats a mostly diary free diet it’s not easy to get enough healthy bacteria without the use of a good supplement.
Probiotics massively improve your Gut Health which leads to:
- Healthier digestion
- Boosts energy levels
- Supports a healthy weight
- Improved functioning of the body
- Burning fuel more efficiently
- Boosting immune system
- Can assist with symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, inflammatory bowel disease, Celiac disease or gluten sensitivity
Up your fibre intake
The next step is to add more fibre to your diet. The probiotics helps to heal your gut, adding fibre in conjunction with this helps the new healthy gut bacteria to produce more fat-busting short fatty acids. Eating a fibre rich diet also helps keeps your digestive system healthy and keeps you satiated.
The Elevated plan includes the following helpful list of high fibre foods.
Reduce Sugar and Refined Carbohydrate Intake
The reason I actually started getting interested in healthy recipes was because I was a total sugar monster and loved all things sweet. I knew all the refined sugar was not good for my health and was making me feel sluggish and tired.
The Elevated Plan explains that bad bacteria actually thrive on sugar! When you try to eat less sugar and refined carbs the bad bacteria starts to starve which sends you signals to eat more sugar! This is why most people fall off diets and give in to their cravings. When you reduce your sugar and refined carbohydrate intake and take probiotics your cravings will start to reduce.
Eliminate Artificial Sweeteners
No matter how you look at it artificial sweeteners are just that… artificial and are not good for you at all. Artificial sweeteners encourage the growth of bad bacteria and prevent the growth of good bacteria.
There is ever more awareness about the benefits of intermittent fasting. Fasting can help reduce the bad bacteria and give your digestive system a break. Most people naturally fast for around 8 hours whilst sleeping. Intermittently fasting involves not consuming any calories for a period of 12 t0 18 hours a day, the Elevated Plan recommends doing this five times a week. You still have three meals a day and the same amount of calories you just consume them in a shorter amount of time.
We all know how important this is. Water benefits the whole body and can also prevent over eating by filling you up. Water flushes out toxins and helps make your skin glowing and beautiful too!
As you can see the Elevated Plan is super simple, but if followed brings so many health benefits. It’s definitely made me think a lot more about my gut and the link this has to my health.
