Do you suffer from bloating, constipation, diarrhoea and other gut issues?

Do you often feel tired, depressed & anxious?

Do you struggle to remember things or have a brain fog?

Do you feel run down or get sick a lot? 

Your gut is the epicentre of your physical and mental health.

The gut is not only the place where you absorb important nutrients such as vitamins, minerals & protein which are the basic building blocks needed for our health, but 80% of your immunity also resides in your gut.

Your gut also houses approximately 100 trillion micro-organisms (called microbiome, gut flora or microflora)

which carry out many important jobs.  Some of them are:

 

  • assist in food breakdown and help produce essential nutrients.

  • manage your moods by assisting with serotonin production - your happiness hormone.

  • help you with managing your weight.

  • enhance your immune system.

  • balance cholesterol levels.

  • And much more!

Gut health is very important for many diseases (see below) and this is why we want to make sure that your gut is healthy.

A healthy gut is essential to overall health & wellbeing!

What affects gut health?

 

Different factors of the modern lifestyle directly contribute to an unhealthy gut. Some of these include:

 

  • Poor nutrition: Inflammatory foods such as gluten, refined sugars and trans fats kill good bacteria, allowing bad bacteria to thrive and damage the intestinal lining and thus causing leaky gut.  

  • Medications, especially antibiotics which can affect the balance of your gut microflora for 2 years but also others such as the oral contraceptive pill. 

  • Chronic infections (i.e candida, parasites, worms)

  • Stress  

  • Bad sleep
