Did you know?
Poor gut health is a sign of poor overall health. More correctly, if you have poor gut health, your overall health is suffering as a result.
You have more bacteria cells in your gut than you have human cells in your entire body. If your gut is unhealthy, those bacteria are unhealthy, and you’re unhealthy by default.
Poor gut health isn’t only caused by unhealthy bacteria, but they are a major cause.
Consider this - many autoimmune issues and irritable bowel syndrome are linked to an imbalance of healthy and unhealthy bacteria.
Since your calories and nutrients pass through your gut before they become available to you, the health of your gut influences the health of every part of your body.
Here are some signs you may be suffering from an unhealthy gut microbiome:
Addiction to simple carbohydrates. Sugar is so bad for your body. Eating simple sugars helps the bad bacteria in your gut to grow. And, what do those bacteria like to eat? That’s right, more sugar. If you have regular cravings for foods with high sugar content, it might be a sign of poor gut health.
Difficulty concentrating. A reduced ability to concentrate is a common complaint among those with poor gut health. It’s believed that the inflammation caused by poor gut health affects the brain’s ability to focus and block out excess stimuli.
Gastrointestinal distress. Diarrhea, bloating, constipation, gas, heartburn, or other gastrointestinal discomforts can be a sign of poor gut health. A healthy gut is able to process and eliminate waste with minimal difficulties. Regular gastrointestinal distress can be a sign of a serious issue.
