As new research sheds light on the importance of a balanced gut, the AFPA will provide students the knowledge they need over the course of eight modules

The American Fitness Professionals & Associates (AFPA) has announced the launch of a new offering: a Gut Health Nutrition Specialist course.

With increased research, health professionals have recognized the significance of gut health in digestive disorders, immunity, chronic disease, and even mental health.

One recent example is Supergut, a gut health nutrition brand, that had a peer-reviewed clinical trial published in Diabetes, Obesity, and Metabolism: A Journal of Pharmacology and Therapeutics.

According to the Supergut study, regular consumption of its shakes, which are formulated with a proprietary resistant starch prebiotic fiber blend, can lead to improvements in metabolic health, digestion, sleep, mood, and energy levels.

The AFPA, a division of the KnowFully Learning Group, has developed a certificate of specialty to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the role of nutrition in influencing gut health.

The course provides up-to-date scientific information on how gut health is critical to healthy digestion and nutrient absorption, as well as being intricately linked to the proper functioning of all bodily systems.

“I have trained and consulted with organizations worldwide on fitness and sports performance programming for over 20 years. Fitness professionals, personal trainers, and coaches struggle when clients and athletes are thrown off mentally and physically with gut health problems and related symptoms,” said Diane Vives, senior director of health & wellness professional education for AFPA.

“There was little in the way of professional education with science-based information and realistic solutions. I am very excited that the AFPA team and nutrition expert Sasha Aparicio collaborated to provide this Gut Health Specialist course and believe it will help many professionals and their clients.”

The course is divided into eight modules and students will learn about gut anatomy, the impact of gut health on the body, and how nutrition, genetics, and lifestyle can influence gut health. The AFPA says students will also learn evidence-based nutritional strategies for optimizing gut health throughout the lifecycle.

The Gut Health Nutritionist Specialist course, $499, is available here and offers payment plans.
