The importance of knowing your gut & its health implications
You might not think about it too often but your gut is talking to you, you know the signs, that ‘off’ feeling you experience, manifesting with a myriad of stomach disturbances such as; gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhoea and abdominal cramps. Optimal gut health is essential and it’s about time you get to know your gut better.
The bacteria found in your gut help you digest foods, but they also work all over your body and can affect both physical and mental health.
Gassy? Bad bacteria are known to produce more gas, so digestion issues might be a good indicator that your gut doesn’t have enough of the good sort of bacteria. It might be time to switch up the diet!
Feeling exhausted? If your immune system has to fight imbalanced gut flora, it may be overburdened. It may make you feel sick or experience symptoms of an overactive immune system, which mimic flu-like symptoms.
Experiencing some longer term health issues? Researchers have found that there’s a link between impaired gut health and conditions such as obesity, diabetes, eczema and many more.
