Why is gut health so important?

Sometimes we can become distracted by our external appearance, we forget what can be going on inside our body. As well as exercise, gut health is so important to maintain. If your gut health is imbalanced you may find it could be the cause of many symptoms.

What you eat determines the type of bacteria in your gut. According to Nava, a Health and Vitality Center, your stomach is like a second brain which can affect your mood and energy levels. Your gut is also largely responsible for your bodies digestive and immune system.

Gut health is extremely important because it can affect how you absorb minerals, hormones and your ability to eliminate toxins.

If you are experiencing any of the following you may need to analyse how healthy your gut is!

1. Digestive Issues

If you regularly experience gas or bloating, heartburn, diarrhoea or constipation. Your gut may be out of sorts.

2. Vitamin and Mineral Deficiencies

As we mentioned above a healthy gut also plays an important role when it comes to helping your body produce and synthesize vitamins and minerals. If your gut is out of balance you may not be absorbing enough minerals from your food.

3. Low Energy Levels and Stress

Put simply, stress raises cortisol levels, which can stop the gut from working properly. Unfortunately, there is no quick cure for stress, but you can alter your lifestyle and form good habits to help reduce stressful periods. Vitamins such as magnesium can help with anxiety.

4. Skin Conditions

Bad skin can often be misdiagnosed as creams or antibiotics won’t get to the root of the cause if it’s your unhealthy gut. In fact, antibiotics can reduce the amount of good bacteria in your gut sometimes making the situation worse! The clarity of your skin can also more often be related to gut health. What you put in your mouth can be as important as what you put on your skin.
