As a nutritionist that specializes in gut health, one of the first things I ask my clients to do is stop chewing gum. When you start the chewing motion, the digestive system is signalled to start secreting enzymes to further break down your food. When the digestive system is activated from the chewing motion and there is no food entering the digestive tract, the powerful actions of these enzymes are going to waste. Eventually, this empty digestive process can compromise your digestive function when you require the support from those enzymes to break down your food. The long term effect of a compromised digestive system can be malnourishment, allergies, sensitivities and chronic digestive disturbances. With that being said, I am right there with the desire to combat the garlicky caesar or coffee breath and we still can, with the help of Mintier.
Aside from the benefit of proper enzyme secretion, there are a few ingredients in Mintier that are also very supportive for optimizing the digestive function.
From oral thrush to healing the gut lining, MCT oil has been shown to be supportive for balancing our good bacteria due to its antimicrobial and antibacterial properties!
PEPPERMINT & SPEARMINT
IBS is one of the most common digestive diagnoses that I help people navigate as a nutritionist and in my professional opinion, is a blank term for a group of digestive disturbances. Peppermint and Spearmint are therapeutic herbs from the mint family that I recommend daily for digestive support. These herbs are considered antispasmodic which can help to reduce IBS symptoms such as bloating, gas and cramping.
Lemon oil contains an active ingredient called D Limonene which has a neutralizing effect to reduce acid reflux and heartburn.
In Mintier, you’ll find cinnamomum zeylanicum, also known as ceylon cinnamon or true cinnamon. This source of cinnamon is known to have higher antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties compared to cassia cinnamon. This form of cinnamon can be used therapeutically to reduce gut inflammation and bacteria overgrowth, which will optimize your digestive function.
Clove is an incredibly potent herb that is commonly used to treat tooth pain, but it is also known to fight infections and bacteria overgrowth in the mouth. As we know, digestion starts in the mouth which is why it is so important to prioritize your oral health to support your gut health.
The combination of these ingredients are not only amazing for gut health, they will leave your mouth feeling fresh, sweet and warm!
In summary, if you are trying to optimize your digestive function, I highly recommend swapping your daily chewing gum for Mintier.
“When I first tried Mintier, I was shocked! Not only did Rhae and Jess replace gum with a deliciously tasting oil, they have created a product that supports optimal digestion.”
