What is Gut Health?

A healthy gut is efficient digestion of food. While this is true, gut health affects the health of your entire body. There is growing evidence that healthy gut microbiota is important for mental health and an effective immune system. From the esophagus to the gut, gut health includes the health of the entire digestive system. This is the part of our body that breaks down food into individual nutrients to supply the body. It works by breaking it down into easy-to-use shapes.

Why Gut Health is important?

There are two main reasons why you should think about your gut health.

  • First, our digestive tract (gut) is home to trillions of microorganisms. These are very important parts of our health: They produce various hormones and vitamins that we need to live.
  • Second, most of the immune system’s cells are located in the digestive tract. Good gut health is associated with fewer sick days and a lower risk of allergies and autoimmune diseases. Without a healthy intestinal lining, you cannot get the full benefits of what you eat.
