Did you know that improving your gut bacteria could be one of the most important things you do for your health?
Does taking a daily probiotic really improve your health?
The exciting field of probiotics is revealing just how profound an effect a healthy community of bacteria is for enjoying balanced mood states, experiencing quality sleep and maximising nutrient absorption from food.
As the field of study grows, more and more is being understood about how a gut rich in good bacteria can impact on your mental and physical health. That’s because the gut-brain axis (that’s the two-way communication between the gastrointestinal tract and the central nervous system) is the crucial link between what we eat and how we feel.
Good bacteria needs your help!
One of the best ways you can improve your gut bacteria is through bringing a range of fresh, whole foods into your diet. These foods contain fibres known as prebiotics which feed the helpful bacteria that keep your body happy and healthy. But this balance can easily be thrown off should you become sick or overindulge in foods that encourage the growth of less beneficial bacteria. This can lead to lowered immunity, sleep issues or low mood.
That’s why adding a daily probiotic to your morning routine could help you bolster the numbers of friendly bacteria no matter what life throws your way. It’s a simple and easy way to give your body and mind some support!
