What is Gut Health?

At one point in time, the gut and digestive system was considered to be a simple bodily system that comprised of one long tube for our food to pass through and then be excreted, being absorbed along the way. Over time, medical communities have researched into the complexity of the gut and how it is becoming more and more clear that it is vital to our overall health in more ways than one.

Many studies have pointed towards the link between overall gut health and your immune system function, your mental health, skin conditions, cancer, autoimmune diseases and your mood. It is clear to see that your gut is responsible, or is at least a major contributor, to much more than passing and excreting food.

When determining what makes a healthy gut, we should look at our gut microbiome. This term refers to the microorganisms that live in your intestines. Out of the 300-500 different kinds of bacteria that reside in your digestive tract, some are harmful to your health; however, others are extremely beneficial. Studies have shown that having a vast array of good bacteria in your gut may improve the function of your immune system, reduce obesity and even help with depression symptoms.
