Gut Health – Improving Health through Nutrition & Digestion
Why is gut health so vital to your well-being? Your gut is the key to digesting, absorbing, and assimilating nutrients from your food. When gut health is optimized, your vitality, energy, and overall health can be optimized as well. Your gut also plays a critical role in defending you from unwanted intruders such as parasites, opportunistic bacteria, fungi, and toxins. If your gut is compromised, the rest of your body can suffer the consequences. Excessive gas, belching, bloating, persistent fullness after eating, cramping, urgency, loose stool, and constipation can be common signs of gut dysfunction, but did you know that your gut health can also affect many other aspects of your life? Your hormones, hair, skin, nails, attention, focus, concentration, and mood may all be affected by imbalances in gut function.
Supporting Your Gut Health
According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, the main drivers of gut health changes are shifts in your stomach acid, gut immunity, and gastrointestinal flora (the complex ecosystem of bacteria in your digestive system. Eating the right foods, getting more sleep, increased movement & exercise, managing stress, and addressing mood, anxiety & depression are 5 of the ways you can support your gut health.
