If you're like me this past year you've been inundated with emails, magazine articles, ads, and hints questioning what are you doing about your Gut Health.
First I had to ask the question What is Gut Health?” I mean I think I know where my gut is but how do I know if it's healthy or not? And can just eating the right foods or taking a supplement take care of that?
This is what I've learned (so far). Your Gut starts in your mouth and ends at your business end. Now I always thought it was just your stomach and maybe some intestines but nope, it starts where you start to break down your food. And it ends where you food is finished digesting.
If y0ur gut is not healthy you can have issues such as Food Allergies (raising hand here), Seasonal Allergies (raising hand here), Skin Issues, Depression, Hormonal Imbalances, Asthma, and the list can go on.
I can attest to having a few of these issues and while I know that some of them had to do with what was going in my gut (food allergies) I didn't realize that others may be solved or at least managed by looking at my gut health.
Apparently, we have and are supposed to have all kinds of, good, bacteria going on in our guts but they can get thrown off by illness, unhealthy diet, antibiotics, and some more stuff.
So since the American diet can use quite a bit of tweaking there is a lot of unhealthy gut going around which probably can be the reason there are a lot of Probiotics on the market.
Probiotics are the good bacteria in one form or another that you can introduce back into your gut.
But do they work?….(dun, dun,dun, dun- que music)
