There is more and more research and understanding these days around the importance of gut health and how it impacts our overall health.
Did you know that the gut microbiome is a large community of gut microbes that coexist in our lower intestine, if they were condensed together they would weigh around the same as the human brain. These microbes all pump out chemicals that are vital for our bodies, they produce chemicals that control your brain, hormone release, disease & infection responses and a whole lot more. So, it's not surprising then is it that what goes into the gut determines how well our bodies function.
5 facts to remember about gut health:
- It affects the digestion and absorption of nutrients from food meaning poor gut health can leave you with vitamin and nutrient deficiencies, fatigue, sleep issues, skin conditions, IBS, unexpected weight fluctuations and more.
- The gut microbiome (the population of microorganisms in the gut) directly affects the immune system.
- The gut and brain communicate through the gut-brain axis, and gut health can impact mood and mental health.
- Imbalanced gut bacteria can lead to, not only, digestive issues but can increase the risk of chronic disease, inflammation and infections leading to a higher risk of conditions such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease.
- A healthy gut microbiome can lead to better overall health.
