Metabolic Dysfunction: One of the Most Overlooked Underlying Causes of Poor Gut Health

One of the most often overlooked underlying causes of poor gut health issues like SIBO is metabolic dysfunction. Your brain requires oxygen and glucose for fuel and your metabolism is how your body turns food into fuel. If your fuel delivery is hindered by issues such as low blood sugar or circulation problems, or if you're anemic or insulin resistant, your brain’s ability to function normally is affected because it’s not getting the fuel it needs. This can lead to all sorts of symptoms like an inability to focus, anxiety, depression, fatigue, and also decreased vagus nerve activation.

The vagus nerves carry signals between your brain, heart, and digestive system. They’re a key part of your parasympathetic nervous system. Vagus nerve damage can lead to gastroparesis (food not moving into your intestines/decreased motility) in the gut. When food doesn't move through your system gas, bloating, and acid reflux occur, and toxins build up in your system, which can make you feel horrible.

Sadly, what usually happens is the SIBO gets diagnosed and treated without addressing the underlying fuel delivery problem. The symptoms continue, despite trying everything, and yet nothing seems to work when it comes to addressing your gut issues.

If you've tried everything yet no matter what you do you can't seem to lose weight, melt belly fat, beat bloat, or get rid of your gut symptoms, the Quick Keto Metabolic Reset System can help by addressing the key underlying reason …. your sluggish metabolism.
