Why should you go with your gut?

More and more information is getting thrown around about pre and probiotics, bacteria, microbiomes and your gut, and yes we plead guilty to this (check out Retail Pharmacy Assistants magazine September for a detailed synopsis on the gut). But why? Why is it important? And why should you care?

“The human body is home to trillions of bacteria from birth until the end of life,” said Education Manager at Life-Space, Evolution Health, David O’Reily in the September issue of RPA.

With that much bacteria living in the human body, there is a lot of opportunities for things to go wrong in the gut. What happens exactly if you don’t feed the good bacteria, the good stuff (pre and probiotics) and allow the bad bacteria to set up camp?

Here is a check list of the things that could go wrong:

  • Bloating
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhoea
  • Weight gain
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Gut pain
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Just to name a few.
