The Benefits of a Healthy Gut

Let’s face it the gut is a hard sell. You can’t see it and you’ve probably never given it much thought. And yet, it is probably the most exciting subject in health right now. We’re seeing so many breakthroughs in our understanding of how the gut works, why it’s important and what it means for the future of our health.

Not only are the billions of bacteria in your gut essential to how you digest food, they also provide vital enzymes and control the calories you absorb, linking the health of the gut directly to our weight. Whether you want to lose weight or not, whether you’re one of the one in four people who struggle with a digestive issue, you can benefit. The evidence is there. Good gut health supports healthy digestion, natural immunity and supports against unfavourable yeasts.

However our levels of ‘good’ bacteria can be altered by many things including poor diet, antibiotics, stressful situations, low quality food, travel tummy and ageing. And when the ratio of ‘good’ bacteria is lowered, health concerns may arise. These include gas, bloating, low energy, constipation, diarrhoea, thrush as well as decreased nutrient absorption. That’s when we need to replenish the ‘good’ bacteria.

The good news!

You are in charge of your gut health. What you eat and how you support your microbiome with specialist foods and supplements determines your personal pick ’n’ mix of gut bacteria that are then able to help keep your digestive system happy and healthy.
