Steel Stool wanted to create a solution that elevated the bathroom experience by creating a natural vegan fiber product that is specifically designed to improve the digest process for those with protein-based diets, without negatively impacting goals around muscle building and body fat reduction. Our premium blend of psyllium husk, cinnamon, chicory and aloe vera helps aid digestion for protein-heavy diets and all diets that lack fiber.
The Importance of Healthy Bowels
Healthy bowel activity is considered to be one or two movements of moderate size every day. Fewer bowel movements, e.g. every other day or once to twice a week is simply not enough for optimum health.
Why does it matter how “regular” you are? Because if body wastes don’t move through the bowel quickly enough, toxins can get absorbed back into the body through the mucous membranes causing a range of adverse health effects.
It’s incredibly important to keep that waste moving. Part of the problem is the ‘modern’ diet, full of processed foods, alcohol, coffee etc. as it causes the digestive tract to produce mucus layers to protect itself from the toxins in these foods and these layers build up and prevent the body from absorbing nutrients from what we eat.
Also, these processed, low-fiber foods rot away in our gut – putrefying, fermenting and leading to bacterial growth and this can lead to unbalanced gut flora. Common signs of this happening include headache, backache, bad breath, body odor, skin problems, irritability, abdominal gas and bloating. This build-up of wastes in the digestive tract can be severe; the bowel can become impacted with a huge amount of accumulated material, like an old sewage pipe, until the opening is no bigger than a pencil! Of course, if you want to beat constipation for good and be truly healthy the best solution is to make long-term positive changes and additions to your diet and lifestyle.
Good-looking stool can indicate that your health and fitness is where it should be. For instance, it can tell you:
- Your core muscles are strong.
- Your gastrointestinal system is pumping nicely.
- You’re getting plenty of fiber and other nutrients.
- Your hormones are happy.
- You aren’t overly stressed.
- Your intestinal flora are balanced and thriving.
If your poo isn’t looking so great, it might tell you something important. For instance, less-than-stellar poo might say things like:
- You may need to improve your nutrition.
- You may be stressed and anxious.
- You may need to drink more water.
- You may have a food intolerance.
- You may need more daily activity to help things move along better.
- You may have a health issue that’s standing between you and the way you want to look and feel.
- You may need to consider adding a supplement to keep things moving.
Introducing Steel Stool
Steel Stool is an all-natural vegan fiber supplement fueled by psyllium husk, cinnamon, chicory, and aloe vera to keep things moving. The combination of these natural ingredients will bring many health benefits to your body.
Psyllium husk serves as a prebiotic to help facilitate the nourishment of bacteria in the lining of the gut. In turn, this will help proper digestion and healthy absorption of food.
Cinnamon reduces the stomach’s rate of digestion, helping to normalize blood sugar levels and reduce triglycerides, bad cholesterol, and total cholesterol.
Soluble fiber is the primary type of fiber found in chicory root. This key ingredient slows digestion and eliminates cholesterol from the body.
Naturally containing high amounts of fiber and water, aloe vera is alkaline, meaning it helps reduce inflammation in the stomach and feed good bacteria in the digestive tract.
How to Take it
Take 3 capsules of Steel Stool, twice daily with plenty of water. Once fully hydrated, their proprietary blend of psyllium husk, cinnamon, chicory, and aloe vera, each capsule swells to form a soft-but-solid mass. The expanded fiber begins to pass safely and gently through your digestive tract, collecting particles and any excess waste left behind in your digestive tract. The process is similar to a natural scrubber cleaning up behind your meals, providing an excellent medium to help maintain the flow of elimination. These fuller bowel movements lead to the ever-elusive “ghost wipe.”
The Importance of Good Gut Health for Athletes
Whatever kind of athlete you may be, good gut health will considerably help your performances and recovery. Good gut health allows your body to absorb the nutrients and minerals from the foods you eat more easily, maximizing their bio-availability. It also allows you to feel comfortable and focused on the task at hand. During longer conditioning WODs or intense strength workouts, the last thing you want to be worrying about is your stomach and how bad it feels.
