Why love your gut?
Your gut houses the majority of your microbiome which is involved in nearly every part of your body’s processes (the rest is in your mouth, genitals, nose, skin etc). You have 2 kg of microbes(eg bacteria,fungi,viruses), with over tens of trillions of micro organisms , and more than 1000 species of bacteria for you to look after. These microorganisms are called your microbiome and the friendly bacteria of this living gut microbiome world, help you to digest your food, especially when it becomes hard for your stomach and intestines to do this job. The stomach is host to only a few microbes, while the small intestine (where food is digested) has some microbes and the large intestine (where food ferments after digestion) is home to the majority of those trillions of microbes. When you eat each meal millions of microbes enter your body. The intestines are a warm, cosy space, with a regular supply of food, so most of the microbes live here. When your gut microbiome is balanced, you stay healthy, you are have good moods and energy. The good news is that you can change your gut microbiome.
Your gut affects every other part of
your body’s health.
Researchers now know that the
microbes in your gut influence your
health and risk of disease.
