Increasing research is pointing to the important links between gut health and the health of the heart, immune system, hormonal balance, along with mental health and much more!

An individual’s overall health and in particular, gut health, is impacted by the gut microbiome, a complex ecosystem of microorganisms that live on, and in us. Roughly 40 trillion microbes inhabit the gut, and all individuals have their own unique ecosystem containing around 1,500 different bacteria.

Up to 70% of an immune system is concentrated in the gut, The gut also holds up to 90% of the body’s Serotonin, the neurotransmitter responsible for mood.

It is now known that microbes have an influence on the:

  • Physiological function
  • Digestion
  • Metabolism
  • Mood
  • Inflammation
  • Immunity

An imbalance of the normal gut microbiota has been linked with gastrointestinal conditions such as Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

It is not surprising that when the gastrointestinal ecology is altered, it can affect our health.
