Pau d’Arco Blend
Gut Flora Cleanser & Immune System Stimulator
If you tend to experience periods of unexplained fatigue or exhaustion, poor memory and brain fog, stomach issues such as bloating and gas, itching in sensitive areas, moodiness and irritability coming out of nowhere, strong sugar and refined carbohydrate cravings, sinus or urinary issues, or your immune system just doesn’t seem to be doing its job, believe it or not, it may be time to look to your gut as the culprit.
Our ‘gut’ does a lot more than just break down food. Within the gut (our gastrointestinal tract), is our naturally occurring gut flora, which is essentially a ‘community’ of trillions of microorganisms that live within us, called the gastrointestinal microbiome. This microbiome in our digestive system aids digestion and supports immune system functions. In a perfect world, our normal gut flora lives in harmony and symbiotically within us.
A great deal of our immune system’s activity is centered in our digestive system, which not only digests food, but takes part in the immune system’s complex job of keeping the body’s resistance strong to protect our health. When our gut flora is in balance, it helps keep our intestinal tract and our entire body functioning healthily. When it gets out of balance, both our digestive systems and our immune systems can become weakened.
Because we depend on the good bacteria in our gut to keep things under control, one of the biggest culprits in unbalancing the digestive tract and ‘rocking the boat’ for our gut flora is broad-spectrum antibiotics, which kill both bad and good bacteria. Other factors in unbalancing our gut flora are eating a diet that is high in refined carbohydrates, sugar and junk food, corticosteroid inhalers, birth control pills, strong chemical therapies, diabetes, weakened immune system conditions, and stress.
Since you’ve probably experienced one or more of these factors, your gut flora may need some special help from you to be able to maintain a healthy microbiome and support your immune system.
Diet is a very important part of supporting healthy gut flora. Probiotics are the ‘good’ bacteria needed, and unsweetened kefir and yogurt are good sources. Eat plenty of whole vegetables, especially during a cleansing and rebuilding period. While clearing your gut, eliminate processed and low fiber foods, avoid sweeteners and sugars of any kind, alcohol, tobacco, and limit intake of fruits and grains.
Herbal Ally – Pau d’Arco Blend
There are excellent herbs that, in the right combination, can give a tremendous boost to your gut flora balance and immune support. Pau d’Arco Blend by Cedar Bear’s Founder and Clinical Herbalist, L. Carl Robinson, is formulated with carefully chosen herbs to help clear out the bad guys in the gastrointestinal microbiome so the good guys can flourish.
Pau d’Arco Bark, used for generations by native people in the Amazon rain forest, usnea lichen from North America, and thyme, a common cooking spice that we all use in the kitchen, all help clear out invasives in our gut. Echinacea activates the immune system, and reishi mushroom has many immune modulating actions. Together, these herbs do a wonderful job supporting the beneficial gut flora in our microbiome. They also stimulate the immune system and help immune system cells communicate with each other better, support healthy cell structure, and have an antioxidant action that protects against free radicals and slows the aging process.
Pau d’Arco Blend is a great tasting alcohol-free liquid herbal formula and is a must for your gut. Try it today. Your microbiome community will thank you for it!
