Yes, it’s true! Your digestive tract contains 70% of your immune defences. Taking care of your gut is especially important during these colder months, when it’s harder to keep on top of your health and you’re more susceptible to ills and chills.
An unbalanced, unhealthy gut can also lead or contribute to issues such as:
Your digestive system naturally contains billions of ‘friendly’ or ‘beneficial’ bacteria, which help to maintain a healthy intestinal flora balance and keep your digestive tract functioning properly. Daily pressures, alcohol, stress, medication and poor diet can all put your digestive system out of balance, which then gives harmful bacteria the opportunity to multiply.
A healthy gut is important for your overal health. You can support your digestive system by eating foods like yoghurt and Miso soup, which naturally contain live beneficial bacteria (also known as ‘Probiotics’). Probiotics support you by increasing your levels of beneficial bacteria, which helps to prevent the unfriendly ones from gaining a foothold in your body.
A convenient way to ensure you get enough beneficial bacteria is to take a Probiotics supplement.
