Rebirth The Microbiome With Branched Fats
Branched Fats – Nature’s Foundation For A Balanced Gut
Branched fats are found widely in nature. Observing that branched fats make up a majority of vernix caseosa (the waxy residue often seen on the skin of newborn babies), scientists set out to investigate the role nature designed it for.
What they discovered was that branched chains in the vernix form part of our very first meal – ingested in utero (in the womb).
Now scientists are investigating the role of branched fats in communicating and supporting the immune system, as well as other roles the human gut plays as a second control centre of the body.
Branched Fats Were Your First Meal
In the weeks before birth in our mother’s womb, our skin shed a waxy coating called vernix caseosa (or vernix for short). Aside from protecting the skin, this coating served another important purpose – it was our very first meal.
As we prepared for birth, we swallowed fluid containing the vernix. This lined our developing digestive system with a rich source of nutrients – a special meal designed to feed specific strains of friendly bacteria we needed to prevail in our gut.
It’s a process we know is important, because when premature babies are not able to feed on vernix, they are at a higher risk of gut infections after birth.
Branched fats are what makes our products so different from other gut health products. This symbol is your guarantee that our product contains verified branched chain fatty acids – nature’s foundation for a balanced gut.
Maintaining A Healthy Gut In Children
Maintaining A Healthy Gut In Adults
Adult life is full of demands and a sluggish gut that’s out of balance can get in the way. A healthy gut is one you can forget is even there – it goes about its vital functions and enables you to get on with yours. Unfortunately illness, indulgence, antibiotics and diet can alter the performance of our gut and weaken even the strongest of foundations. Supporting a strong foundation can help to maintain wellness and help you bounce back from the challenges life throws at it.
