Improve gut health with The IV Bar’s glutamine drip

You might have heard of “Happy wife, happy life”, but what about “Happy gut, happy life”? No? Gather close padawans because The IV Bar is about to blow your mind. Your gut is like your body’s second brain, your gut brain, if you will. And we’re telling you about it today because having good gut health can change your life!

But first, let’s chat about what exactly the gut is. Your gut or gastrointestinal tract starts at your mouth and is made up of all the organs in your digestive system, including your oesophagus, stomach, and small and large intestines. When you have bad gut health or your gut microbiome is unhappy, it can affect every other system in your body. Even your brain and mental health.

For a long time, people with gut issues like gut inflammation have turned to gut health supplements like probiotics to help them. But before you start Googling ‘best probiotics for gut health’, there are a few things you should know about probiotics:

  • They are not absorbed properly
  • They require a good cold chain
  • You have to take them monthly
  • They don’t heal your intestinal lining, i.e., improve your gut flora.

This might seem like bad news if your gut brain needs TLC, but you know you never have to fear when The IV Bar is near. We have a glorious solution, but first, you need to identify if you gutta problem.

I gutta problem: Signs of bad gut health

Our gut health plays a significant role in our overall well-being, affecting everything from digestion to immune function. Here are some common signs that your gut might be in a bad state:

  1. Digestive issues:
    Frequent bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhoea, or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) can indicate an imbalance in your gut flora.
  2. Food sensitivities:
    If you notice an increased sensitivity or intolerance to certain foods, it could be a sign of a compromised gut.
  3. Persistent fatigue:
    An unhealthy gut can impair nutrient absorption, leading to nutrient deficiencies and low energy levels.
  4. Mood swings: The gut and brain are closely connected, and an imbalanced gut can contribute to mood disorders like anxiety and depression.
  5. Weakened immunity: Your gut is home to a significant portion of your immune system. Frequent illness or infections may suggest a compromised gut defence.

Now that you have identified if you have a troubled gut, we can introduce you to our gut health superhero: glutamine!

Glutamine is glorious for gut health

Glutamine is an amino acid in your blood and other body fluids that plays a vital role in maintaining the health and integrity of your intestinal lining. And an L-glutamine supplement specifically can help repair the inner lining of the intestinal wall (something that probiotics don’t do, remember?)

Glutamine can support gut repair, enhance nutrient absorption, and strengthen the immune system. Here are some of the reasons we prefer our glutamine drip to probiotics to improve gut health:

  1. Direct gut nourishment:
    Glutamine is a primary fuel source for the cells lining the intestines, aiding their growth and repair.
  2. Better nutrient absorption:
    By improving the integrity of the gut lining, glutamine helps maximise nutrient absorption, preventing deficiencies.
  3. Immune system support:
    Glutamine can strengthen your immune system, allowing it to better defend against harmful bacteria and pathogens.
  4. Gut-brain connection:
    Glutamine contributes to the production of neurotransmitters, which regulate mood and mental well-being.
  5. Convenience and efficiency:
    Unlike probiotics, glutamine drips provide a hassle-free solution to get the glutamine supplement you need.

Don’t let bad gut health keep you from living your best life! Once you’ve experienced the benefits of glutamine and how it can help restore your gut to glory, you’ll never look back.
