Ready to love your guts and take a holistic approach to your health? 

Looking after your gut health is an incredibly important aspect of taking care of your whole body wellbeing. As science has continued to develop, we’ve discovered just how complex the human gut can be. 

Poor gut health doesn’t just affect your body, it can also have a considerable impact on brain function. Maintaining a healthy gut doesn’t just help digestion though, it can also help contribute to a stronger immune system, better heart health, and improved brain function.

Looking after your gut health should be a simple and affordable part of your everyday routine.

What Is Gut Health?

Your ‘gut’ includes the entire gastrointestinal system, including the stomach, small intestine and colon. 

There are trillions of microorganisms that live in our guts, and having a healthy, balanced gut biome, allows your digestive system to properly break down the food you eat, and absorb the nutrients. 

When there is a balance of good bacteria in your gut, this will help you feel healthier, and function at your best level. 

Signs You Might Have Poor Gut Health

You’ve probably heard the phrase ‘trust your gut’ before, and for good reason. Our bodies are often trying to tell us things, especially about our health.

If you’re worried about your gut, here are just a few basic signs from your body that you can look out for. 

Upset stomach – Recurring stomach issues can be a strong indication that something is wrong with your gut health. This can include things such as gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhoea and irritable bowel syndrome. 

Trouble sleeping & fatigue – If you are having trouble sleeping, or are experiencing ongoing fatigue, your gut may be a contributing factor. Much of our body’s serotonin is produced in the gut so if your gut isn’t functioning as it should, it can lead to insomnia and other sleep issues. Serotonin is incredibly important for sleep, mood and overall mental health as well. 

High sugar cravings – if your diet consists of a lot of processed and sugary foods, it can cause damage to your gut. The imbalance created can then cause you to start craving sugar, and the cycle continues. If you are constantly craving sugar, it may be a sign of poor gut health

Irritated skin – When your gut is inflamed, it can increase proteins that irritate your skin, and lead to conditions such as eczema. If you are experiencing skin irritation, it may be due to a poor diet or bad gut health

Food intolerances – If you are having difficulty digesting certain foods, it is often a sign that your gut is not functioning properly. This requires further investigation and there are many experts out there that may assist in this process.

It’s important to note that these are potential signs of poor gut health, but do not automatically mean you have poor gut health. If you are experiencing issues with your health and are concerned, you should always check up with your doctor or trusted health professional.
