Ah, the gut. She’s the moody, needy VIP of your body that requires a ton of attention to stay happy. When treated the way she’d like, she’s the gift that keeps on giving. But when she’s not so happy she’ll reap havoc on your insides, leaving you feeling pretty low.
Relax. Gut health can be intimidating but we’ll walk you through it!
Your gut consists of your microbiome, which is essentially a collection of live microorganisms that live in amongst your intestines. It’s pretty weird to think about, but those 100 trillion tiny bugs, bacteria and fungi that make up your microbiome play a big part in your overall health and wellbeing. Spoiler – they're connected to everything. In fact research suggests your gut affects your brain function, digestion, skin quality, sleep, weight, mental health and immunity (to name a few!).
If you’re a bit of a germaphobe, this can be a little scary but rest assured, they’re nothing to be afraid of. The key to good gut health is fairly simple. It’s all about making sure you have more good bacteria living in your gut than bad. And how do I do that you ask? One of the easiest ways is to add probiotics, prebiotics and synbiotics to your diet. This little trio will have your gut living its best life in no time.
