Gut Health

Why is gut health important?

Have you heard the term I had a gut feeling or I trusted my gut? The gut is sometimes referred to as the "second brain" because it is home to an estimated 100 million neurons, which are the same type of neurons found in the brain. This neural network helps the gut to sense, process, and respond to stimuli from both inside and outside the body. The neurons in the gut also produce and regulate hormones and neurotransmitters that influence our moods, emotions, and even our behavior. This connection between the gut and the brain is why we sometimes refer to the gut as our second brain.

  • Overuse of Antibiotics
  • Chronic stress
  • Injury
  • Processed foods and meats
  • Prescription medications

Gut health is homeostasis, a balance of the digestive system, which allows the body to absorb nutrients and expel waste properly. It is important for the gut to have a healthy well balanced microbiome to maintain physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. Poor gut health can be caused by a range of factors such as poor diet, stress, medications, and medical conditions. Symptoms of poor gut health can include abdominal pain, changes in bowel habits, nausea, fatigue, food intolerances and many more.
