If you have been following my blog for a while, you probably know that in addition to my loving the Lord, I am very much into health and wellness. In fact, I am currently working towards obtaining my certification in functional nutrition. Lord willing, I will be certified in February 2022. Yay!
If you been following the news, you’ve probably heard all about the importance of gut health and it’s impact on our overall health. Particularly, in autoimmune conditions that occur as a result of genetics, leaky gut (food sensitivities) and bacterial or microbial imbalances (infections). While autoimmunity cannot be cured it can be reversed or put into remission through diet, supplements and lifestyle modifications.
Prior to my Hashimoto’s diagnosis three years ago, I was struggling with many of the symptoms that were clearly indicative of autoimmunity, debilitating fatigue, weight gain, hair loss, low libido, insomnia and joint pain. This obviously was problematic because I was working full time, homeschooling and of course trying to manage my son’s therapies and to maintain my marriage that was on skid row at that time as well.
Before receiving a formal diagnosis, I reached out to a friend on Facebook and asked her what she was doing to maintain her health and sanity. She mentioned that she was an Ambassador with Plexus. I had never heard of them, but I figured if she could look as healthy as she did with a life similar to mine, her products were worth trying. So I did! I ordered Triplex. It includes three products that work with your body to heal.
The three products in Triplex are BioCleanse, ProBio5 and Slim. These three products in combination, weed, seed and feed the gut. Let me explain how they work. The BioCleanse, works in three ways, it provides magnesium, a key mineral for the digestive tract and brain. Vitamin C, that provides antioxidant support and citrus bioflavonoids that are anti inflammatory, antiviral and help in a myriad of other ways, not to mention the fact it helps you to have more consistent bowel movements.
The ProBio5 is our flagship probiotic formula that doesn’t require refrigeration. What makes it unique is that has specific probiotic strains to help with serotonin production, immune support and to help balance yeast and a lot more.
Finally, there is our Slim, also known as our pink drink. There are two versions, one for hunger control and the other provides the prebiotics for the probiotics in the ProBio5. But what makes both versions stand out is that they each have green coffee bean extract, which helps maintain healthy blood glucose levels and it helps to enhance fat burning. The chromium polynicotinate, helps to facilitate glucose transport into the cells, which is extremely important for people who are insulin resistant or have type 2 diabetes.
These three products work synergistically with the body to improve nutrient absorption, balance blood sugar, improve sleep, bowel regularity and to aid in weight loss. What surprised me about these products was how quickly they helped me. Remember all of those symptoms that I had at the beginning of this post, well they were gone or significantly reduced at about the three to four month mark.
If you’re wondering why I continue to take them, it’s simple, maintaining good health is a journey not a destination. Our bodies are constantly bombarded with environmental toxins, stress and the occasional food infraction, which means you will always need some type of system in place to keep your body functioning optimally. My body has a lot to do everyday, so I would prefer to keep it as healthy as possible for as long as possible.
If you’re wondering whether products can help you meet your health and wellness goals, then I want to invite you to speak with me. Or read more about this system here. https://guthealth.plexusworldwide.com/triplex. Being healthy and feeling good does not have to be optional.
