Understanding your Gut
The gut (digestive tract) is key to supporting our health. It contains more than 70% of the body’s immune cells and 10 times more bacteria than we have cells in our whole body. As well as digesting our food, one of the most important functions of the gut is to prevent toxins and foreign substances entering the body. All of this means that supporting our gut can help to support our general health.
The human gut contains 100 trillion bacteria from more than 400 known species, known as the microflora. We are only recently beginning to understand the full extent of the gut bacteria’s role in health and disease, but we do know that it supports normal digestive function, helps protect us from infection and regulates our metabolism.
A normal gut contains both ‘good’ and ‘bad’ bacteria and an imbalanced microflora has been linked to many diseases (from autism and inflammatory bowel disease to depression and autoimmune conditions). The bacteria line the gut wall and help to stop toxins and harmful substances passing through the gut into the body – so ideally, we need a lot more good than bad bacteria. The ideal ratio is 85% good to 15% bad bacteria.
The how-to's to gut health
We have also included a range of lifestyle changes that you can integrate into your day-to-day to naturally support your digestive health. Advise upon when to eat, how regularly you, and most importantly, what type of foods you should eat. We have even included a number one recipe cited for gut support, the chick stock (or broth).
