Common Stressors That May Increase Gut Issues - Lily of the Desert

Common Stressors That May Increase Gut Issues

Dealing with gut issues like constipation, bloating, and upset stomach is something countless people face everyday. Luckily, there are ways to help alleviate that discomfort. By identifying the stressors and supplementing with holistic ingredients, you can begin working towards understanding the root cause.

Food Allergies & Sensitivities

Unfortunately, food allergies can develop in people of all ages. Sensitivities like these can cause digestive problems. The most common food allergens are dairy, peanuts, wheat/gluten, shellfish, fish, soy, tree nuts, and egg. However, people can develop sensitivities to almost any food. Here, an “elimination diet” may be able to help. Go a few days without eating the food in question to discover exactly which ingredients your body is reacting to, and stop consuming them.

Bacterial Imbalance & Toxins

Many people have a damaged microbiome due to the toxicity found in the outside world. For example, our food, water, and air all contain contaminants that can affect our gut health. By choosing good quality organic food and supplements, we can help get that microbiome back in balance, which will positively affect our overall health and quality of life. 

Stress & Anxiety

Finally, too much stress can be a huge factor in stomach issues and abdominal discomfort. Our bodies tend to naturally tense up while we worry, which then affects the amount of time it takes food to make it to our bowels. This can cause bloating, diarrhea, and constipation. It is also true that stress can negatively impact our digestion, regularity, and amount of nutrients our intestines can absorb.

Aloe Vera Juice

Aloe vera juice is an unsung hero in aiding gut health. Not only does it help promote the growth of good bacteria, but it also helps balance our stomach’s acidity, improve daily nutrient absorption, and support a healthy immune system. It also helps that aloe vera’s neutral flavor makes it easy to consume or add to recipes like smoothies or mocktails

However, when you choose Lily, you’re guaranteed to get more out of your aloe than with any other brand. Our team has undergone several Gold Standard Clinical Studies to find a way to boost the natural benefits of aloe through a patent-pending infusion process called Aloesorb. Derived from pure aloe, Aloesorb is a non-additive that helps enhance our nutrient absorption rates while reducing ammonia and nitrates by tenfold.

Stomach Formula

If you have occasional indigestion or heartburn, you probably know the pain of not having help on hand. Thankfully, Lily’s stomach formula comes in two sizes; one to keep at home, and one for on-the-go travel. Specifically developed to work with your stomach acid, this stomach formula contains trusted ingredients like peppermint leaf, chamomile leaf, borage leaf, marshmallow root, ginger, fennel seed, and more. These provide essential minerals, vitamins, amino acids, and enzymes to help get your microbiome back to better functionality. When it comes to gut issues, soothing the digestive tract can be extremely helpful.

Detox Formula 

Everyone can benefit from a good detox, and utilizing a product that contains herbs and aloe vera can help your body reduce toxins naturally. Our aloe detox formula helps support a healthy gallbladder, liver, and urinary tract function to encourage better detoxification. Made with a trusted blend of green tea leaves, burdock root, spearmint, blue cohosh root, buckthorn bark, slippery elm bark, and – of course – aloe vera, it helps each system work in tandem during the body’s elimination processes.
