Gut Health

When we talk about your gut, we mean your gastrointestinal system, which includes your stomach,
small intestine, and colon. You may not know it, but gut health plays a huge role in both our mental and physical health and can have a major impact on how we feel day to day.
There are 500-1000 species of bacteria present in your digestive system, and research continues to
reveal their vital role in your health. All of the bacteria and microorganisms in your gut weighs about ~200g, about the weight of a mango! Your body generates “good” bacteria to help keep “bad” bacteria
in check, so when you have a healthy balance, your health reflects that. The foods you eat have a big impact on gut bacteria, and prebiotics such as veggies, lentils and beans can be a massive help. Additionally eating a diverse array of foods is another way of keeping your microbes happy! Keep your gut happy and healthy, and ensure you are getting the right foods for you!
