Sometimes, it’s the panic of finding a bathroom BEFORE you embarrass yourself.
At other times, it’s missing the party in the living room because you can’t get OUT of the bathroom.
But no matter when your gut troubles show up, it’s ALWAYS a painful inconvenience.
Worst of all, if you’ve been relying on conventional medicine alone to help it may have backfired on you.
In fact, you could actually have been HARMING your gut instead of helping it.
Ancient solution FIXES modern medicine fail
As many as one-quarter of the most common drugs on the market can trigger leaky gut and gut inflammation. And that INCLUDES many that are supposed to help control stomach and digestive issues.
In other words, in this case, modern medicine could be at the center of your troubles.
But it turns out an ancient food that historians believe was growing in the Garden of Eden could finally soothe your painful gut.
That’s right. A fruit Adam and Eve would have been familiar with could be the REAL solution to the chronic inflammation attacking your gut.
Ease painful gut inflammation with pomegranate
I bet your thinking about apples right now.
But I’m actually talking about pomegranates. Because many Biblical scholars believe these ruby-red fruits are what tempted Eve in that garden, not apples at all.
Pomegranates are packed with potent anti-inflammatory phytochemicals and antioxidants. Research has already revealed these juicy and delicious winter fruits could help fight everything from heart disease to cancer.
And now scientists say they may also be able to help prevent… and REPAIR… leaky guts. And that means they could be the key to soothing YOUR painful gut inflammation too.
Toxins trigger painful gut inflammation
As you know, billions of bacteria call your digestive tract home. And those bugs are vital for your health and wellbeing.
But in some folks, diet, medications, or even just the luck of the genetic draw leads to microscopic holes forming in the lining of their gut walls.
This condition, called leaky gut, allows bacteria and other toxins to slip out of the digestive tract and into the bloodstream. And that’s when all heck breaks loose.
Your body begins to mount a defense against the rogue bacteria and escaped toxins. This triggers an inflammatory response.
Followed by the abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhea, and constipation of IBS or other painful, inflammatory digestive diseases.
Next thing you know you’re stuck frantically searching for a bathroom several times a day.
But now a study published in the journal Nature Communications is offering new hope for anyone suffering from painful gut inflammation.
And unlike Eve, this temptation isn’t something you should resist.
Pomegranate could help repair a leaky gut
We’ve known for years that pomegranates are good for our health. As I explained earlier, the fruit is brimming with nutrients which can help keep us healthy from head to toe.
But now we know that a tiny compound found in pomegranate juice, called Urolithin A, or UroA, can also help soothe gut inflammation. And just as exciting it could put you on the road to a CURE.
A single layer of epithelial cells makes up your gut lining. Typically, special proteins hold those cells tightly together.
But conditions such as IBS can loosen them up allowing toxins to escape and sending gut inflammation through the roof.
That’s where UroA comes in. Researchers say the compound can help REPAIR the gut barrier, closing up those holes. And that means the painful and embarrassing symptoms of IBS, colitis, and more could start to fade away.
NO drug on the market can do the same. Because while some meds may help ease your symptoms, they will NOT tighten up the holes in your leaky gut.
If you’re battling painful gut inflammation, ask your doc about adding more pomegranate products to your routine.
The whole fruits and 100 percent pure pomegranate juices are available in many grocery stores. And pomegranate juice concentrates are available online and anywhere they sell supplements.
