Your comfort, nutrition, immune function, and brain health, and many other functions, are linked to your digestive health. When you support your gut, you support your entire body.
A healthy gut needs to work properly. If you experience constipation or diarrhea often, your gut lining and intestinal microbiota may not be working in a balanced way.
The gut lining protects you from pathogenic bacteria, food allergies, and sensitivities. For the gut wall to be whole, several factors must be at balance at the same time. The cells in the intestinal lining must be connected. The immune system must produce the right antibodies in the gut. And your digestive system must create a protective layer with substances to cover the internal surface of the gut. If the barrier becomes compromised, pathogens and proteins from your food can pass through. When this happens, your body responds with inflammation. In the case of the food that you eat, this can result in food allergies, sensitivities, and an overactive response to everyday food. A weakening of the epithelial barrier can lead to chronic disorders.
The gut microbiota, the healthy bacteria that lives in your intestines, helps ensure your gut lining is sealed. A healthy microbiota supports your immune system. It stimulates the production of defense cells and proteins. It also prevents harmful microorganisms from growing. The friendly bacteria in your intestines boost the absorption of nutrients from the food you eat. This enhances your energy levels. They also support balanced levels of sugar and lipids in your blood. More recently, researchers even discovered that a healthy microbiota can impact your mood and protect your brain. It is what scientists called the gut-brain axis.
