Why the Better Nutrition Digestive Evaluation?

The Better Nutrition Digestive Evaluation is our #1 recommended practitioner evaluation for improving client health! Think about how important the digestive system is – the body needs to properly absorb nutrients from food and drink to stay healthy, and much of the immune system is housed within our digestive tract! Sometimes called “the second brain,” our gut is also linked to mental health and well-being.

“The Better Nutrition Digestive Evaluation is our new favorite must-have assessment tool in our nutrition practice! When we first heard about this one, we knew we had to incorporate it – digestion can totally make or break how a client feels from day to day. Whether your client wishes to lose weight or improve their skin, having better digestion is essential. Use this tool to ask your clients the tough, smart and no holds barred questions to get at the core and help them to improve their digestion and nutrition.”  -Tammy and Lyssie, The Nutrition Twins     

The Better Nutrition Digestive Evaluation is the first and only tool to help you review your client’s current total nutrition to discover what is better and what could be better for your client’s digestive health.
