This is what Ethical Nutrients have to tell us about Helpful Hints for a Healthy Gut:
It's easy to sometimes forget about the state of our digestive system, often called 'the gut'. After all we can't see it - so why worry about it? However, a healthy digestive system is the key to a healthy body because when the gut is healthy, the rest of the body benefits. A well-functioning gut is crucial for optimal health because of its many important functions. Our digestive system is responsible for absorbing all of the nutrients we need from food so that our bodies can operate effectively, as well as expelling waste materials and toxins that can negatively impact our health. In addition to these important functions, the intestines are home to over 100 trillion bacteria which can strongly influence digestive system function, immune system health and overall wellbeing.
The Garden Within the Gut
The intestinal flora (i.e. bacterial and other microbial organisms in the gut) consists of both friendly and harmful bacteria that co-exist in a complex ecosystem. To promote optimal health it is important to ensure that the good bugs outweigh the bad. If you think of your gut like a garden, a digestive system full of bad bacteria is like a garden overrun with weeds, affecting the overall health of your digestive system and inhibiting the growth of beneficial bugs. Everyday diet and lifestyle choices can interfere with the balance of bacteria in the gut promoting an overgrowth of weeds in your digestive tract.
Diet and Lifestyle Choices Can Disrupt Bacterial Balance
There are a number of diet and lifestyle factors that can deplete the levels of beneficial bacteria in your digestive system, many of which you can influence. Some of these include:
* Low intake of dietary fibre
* High intake of dietary fat
* Exposure to toxic substances
* Alcohol consumption
* Antibiotic use
* Gastrointestinal infections
* Excess stress
Fortunately, probiotic supplementation can help to reduce the negative effects that everyday diet and lifestyle can have on the balance of good bacteria in your gut.
