Healthy Gut Function

What is gut health?

Gut health is known as the functioning and balance of the bacteria that reside in the gastrointestinal tract. These bacteria are important as they can impact the functioning of our major systems including the immune, nervous and endocrine systems. They also control the digestion of food and nutrients into our body, therefore impacting our overall health.

How do you improve gut health?

Improving your gut health can be achieved in many ways. Taking a prebiotic or a probiotic supplement can promote the growth of good bacteria living in the gut. Other ways to improve your health include lowering your stress levels, getting better sleep, eating slowly and staying hydrated. You should also monitor your diet and check for any food intolerances that may be upsetting your stomach.
