Finally just a quick shout out to the show sponsor of the month, Nutrition Care and in particular their hero supplement NC Gut Relief.
Apart from helping digest food and absorb nutrients, your gut is your first line of defence, making up 70% of your immune system. Which means if your gut isn’t performing at its best, your overall health may be compromised too. NC Gut Relief is a science-based formulation of nutrients, herbs and prebiotics, developed to help maintain gut integrity and function.
I have used NC Gut Relief in clients experiencing reflux and heartburn with much success. It is always important however to seek the support of a qualified health practitioner such as myself to ascertain whether this formula is the right fit for your needs.
