How important is gut health?
Gut health is incredibly important - did you know there is more DNA that makes up your gut than the entire rest of your body? As such it is incredibly important to respect your gut and make sure it has all the goodness it needs in order to thrive.
Is gut health the same as digestive health?
No. Digestive health is a part of gut health but the gut regulates and controls so much more. The gut plays a vital role in such a large range of functions in the body and has been linked directly to the immune system and also brain function. In the latter case this means that poor gut health can, in turn, have a negative effect on both your sleep and mood.
The gut is effectively the entire system from the mouth, through to the stomach and then all the way through the small and large intestine and finally the bowels.
How do I know if I have good gut health?
There are some tell tale symptoms that imply your gut health could be better. These include but are not limited to:
- Discomfort when passing stools
In addition to this there are other symptoms that might indicate poor gut health (but could be indicative of other issues) including poor sleep, bad moods, poor immunity and a huge range of other problems.
It's also worth remembering that sometimes the gut can develop an issue unexpectedly. A great example of this is when using antibiotics. Antibiotics are designed to kill all bacteria; both friendly and unfriendly. As a result a course of antibiotics can often leave your stomach in a poor state. Whilst this might not become immediately clear, problems can develop grown and then manifest into something much worse if not dealt with quickly.
