Do you love your gut?

Digestive Health

Digestive HealthYour body contains billions of good and bad bacteria and other micro organisms. To achieve optimal health, you really need to achieve optimal gut health. Show your gut you care by stocking up on lots of good bacteria. You can get your daily dose of good bacteria through a good quality probiotic.

Probiotics are dietary supplements containing live micro organisms of good bacteria that are similar to those normally found in your body and assist with digestion, help protect against harmful bacteria, and overall intestinal health. The most effective probiotics include Bifidobacteria and Lactobacillus species.

Beneficial bacteria in the gut are important for digestion of food and nutrients. They also support a strong immune system by protecting against bad bacteria and other micro organisms that can cause disease. Maintaining a good, natural balance of friendly organisms in the intestines keeps us healthy and is important for your health and well-being.

Digestive problems can leave you feeling bloated, tired, or sick. Poor diet, lifestyle, eating habits and even stress can contribute to digestive system difficulties. The digestive system slows down with age, so looking after your gut now is even more important.

Poor eating habits, stress, antibiotics and unfriendly micro organisms such as disease-causing bacteria or yeast can all destroy the delicate balance of micro-organisms in our intestine, leading to problems like diarrhoea, constipation, gas, bloating, and susceptibility to other infections. Sugar, alcohol, caffeine, and food with preservatives all increase levels of bad bacteria. Taking probiotics can help replace depleted populations of good bacteria.

Benefits of good bacteria:

Good bacteria help prevent bad bacteria from infecting the body and may help prevent intestinal diseases such as ulcerative colitis and cancer. Along with a probiotic supplement, eat plenty of whole grains, beans, seeds, nuts, vegetables, and fruits. This will help to establish a healthy colony of good bacteria in your intestines.

Spring clean your body:

Go Natural:

Reduce your daily coffee intake and substitute with natural energy alternatives. Take pre – or probiotics every day to restore good bacteria in the colon to counter the effects of winter comfort foods.

Eat lots of fibre:

Include plenty of high-fibre foods such as beans, fruits, vegetables and oat bran in your diet to help maintain normal bowel movement.

Exercise daily:

Try walking for 20minutes, swimming, light jogging, yoga, or pilates. You need to get your body moving to promote digestion, encourage cleansing and eliminate toxins.

Supplement:

Look after your liver and other parts of your digestive system with high quality nutritional supplements, such as milk thistle which has been used traditionally for its hepatoprotective effect.

Hydrate:

Increase your daily water intake to keep your body hydrated.
