As you work to transform your life physically, it’s important to consider multiple aspects of your health. Today, we’re going to focus on one of the most important aspects of your physical wellbeing: your gut health!
One of the most obvious reasons that your gut health matters is that healthy digestion is important. You need to be able to properly digest your food to take advantage of the nutrients! No matter how healthy your diet is, a healthy digestive system is critical for you to get the most benefit out of it.
But your digestive system does a lot more than simply breaking down your food. Research suggests that the balance of bacteria in your gut may also affect your weight. People with a healthy and diverse balance of bacteria in their gut tend to maintain healthier weights than those with less diverse balances of bacteria. That’s why it’s important to consider your gut health if you’re working to lose weight.
In addition to proper digestion and weight management, your gut health also affects your immune health. According to research, probiotics, or the good bacteria that live in your gut, “can regulate not only the local intestinal immune system but also can have a profound influence on systemic immune responses.” You may not realize it, but your digestive system can have a huge effect on your overall health!
