Poor gut health is not only linked to gastrointestinal problems, but may play a role in the management of serious diseases like diabetes, autoimmune disorders, arthritis, depression and chronic fatigue syndrome. Many diseases that may seem totally unrelated to the gut – such as eczema - may actually be caused or worsened by gut problems. The gut contains 70% of the body’s immune system, and the gut microbiota plays a major role in immune health.
Your digestive system is at the centre of your wellbeing and is involved in so many vital processes. It is responsible for converting food into simple nutrients and delivering them to the body via the bloodstream.
Your digestive system plays a big role in regulating hormones and excreting toxins, so keeping a healthy balance of good bugs in your intestine is critical to good gut health!
