Renew Life® Probiotics convenes panel discussion on powering one's potential and achieving balance; announces $100,000 commitment to fund gut health research
"I know, 'gut' can be such an icky word, but it doesn't have to be," said Huffman. "The gut can actually be the source of your potential. I can honestly say that I attribute much of my success as a wife, mom, and actress to my gut, more specifically, my gut health."
Today, Huffman joined a panel of women, including
Turning a Taboo Topic Into Powering Your Potential
A recent survey1 shows that nearly three quarters of women (72 percent) have experienced an occasional digestive/gut issue in the past 12 months, but nearly two in three women (64 percent) aren't willing to talk about gut issues with their friends.
"The gut can be such an unpleasant word, but it's critical we talk about the importance of gut health and all the ways it can help us succeed – at every stage in life," said Huffman. "Our family started taking probiotics 15 years ago after my daughters' pediatrician told me about the importance of gut health and flora to keep the girls' immune systems healthier. When we forget to take them, inevitably someone gets the sniffles, a cold or just feels out of sorts."
The goal of the Power Your Potential panel was to spark a conversation about the powerful influence the gut plays in overall health. Renew Life is committed to the advancement of the science behind gut health and probiotics through its partnerships with major universities around the country. To further support this mission, Renew Life announced today a
"I'm thrilled to receive this award from Renew Life and honored to share in their drive to understand how gut microbes communicate with the nervous system to influence health and disease," said Hsiao, PhD. "There are intriguing connections to explore between gut health, diet, mood and more. I feel privileged to be able to help advance this important research area and excited by the possibilities of where it can take us in the future." More details of this partnership and Hsiao's findings will be announced on RenewLife.com in the coming months.
Through its "Being Human Takes Guts" initiative, Renew Life celebrates the human spirit while also educating people on the positive benefits that come from a healthy gut. "Our goal is to educate and empower people to focus on gut health because we know a healthy gut can help people do extraordinary things," says
"The gut is often referred to as the body's second brain because it contains over 100 million neurons and interacts with many organ systems, including the immune system, liver and central nervous system," said Hsiao. "Science has only begun to scratch the surface of understanding exactly how gut microbes influence the body, but there is increasing evidence that supporting a healthy gut ecosystem is important for both mind and body."
Research shows a healthy gut has several highly positive benefits, including:
- Immunity: At least 70 percent of your immune system is located in the gut, therefore a healthy gut can boost your immune system
- Stress: A healthy gut can help lower stress
- Energy: A healthy gut can help improve your stamina and expend energy better
- Happiness: 95 percent of your body's happiness-inducing serotonin is produced in the gut
- Discomfort: A healthy gut can help protect against stomach discomfort
- Diet: A healthy gut can help fight food cravings
- Sleep: A healthy gut can help improve sleep
- Memory: A healthy gut can help improve memory
- Kids: A healthy gut can help support kids development and boost a child's immune health
Huffman concurred. "Everyone in our house takes a probiotic every morning. It's the one thing I make sure my family does to give us a leg up on staying healthy and doing our best work – whether it's at school or on set."
Model and mom Quinones shared her reason for using probiotics. "I never thought a probiotic would give me so much in return. When I'm taking Renew Life, I feel more balanced and energized to take on the unexpected challenges of daily life with a toddler. Anything I can do to feel my best, allows me to be the best mom I can be."
"I generally take a food-first approach when it comes to getting the nutrients you need, but probiotic supplements like Renew Life offer a distinct advantage for gut balance that is difficult to get with food alone, so I recommend them along with getting more pre- and probiotic-rich foods into your life," says Krieger.
