An old adage says that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. But, these aren’t just clever words. Science keeps proving it’s true. Building a strong immune system is key to protecting yourself from disease and fighting illness. If you want your body to be ready to fight whatever it faces—many experts now agree that it all starts in your gut. In fact, gut health is now commonly cited as a key aspect to strengthening immunity!
What is gut health?
Gut health is about the good and the bad bacteria that live inside your GI tract. We all have microorganisms that live inside our gut and these organisms are responsible for up to 75% of our immune system. Did you know the microbial composition of your gut plays a key role in disease prevention, managing inflammation, preventing autoimmune disorders, preventing chronic obesity, and even mental illness? These little bugs play a huge role in our health.
Do Probiotics Fix Everything?
Over the last few decades many different brands and types of probiotics have entered the marketplace. Research suggests that supplementing with a good probiotic can help heal a “leaky gut” and help restore the balance of good bacteria inside your GI tract to build immunity. Most agree that taking a supplement alone is probably not sufficient without some diet changes and maybe even some detoxification efforts. But, if you need a place to start, talk to your doctor or research the best probiotic supplements for your age, lifestyle, and medical conditions.
Are there Signs of Poor Gut Health?
Our bodies are very good at communicating when there’s a problem. In fact, there are common, easy-to-see signs when your gut needs extra help and attention. If you have frequent “bathroom issues,” heartburn, constipation, bloating, diarrhea—these could be signs your GI system is in distress. If you struggle with eczema or skin issues, have had unintentional weight changes, or find yourself not tolerating certain foods, or facing new allergies—these too could be signs of leaky gut or poor gut health. Sleep disturbances, lethargy, and depression have also been linked to gut issues.
What Else Can I Do to Support Gut Health and Immunity?
Healing your gut and building immunity also requires you to manage stress, get enough sleep, help your body detox, along with eating a nutritious diet. The systems of our body are intricately woven together. Treating just one part is rarely as effective as taking a comprehensive approach to your overall health.
