The benefits of a healthy gut

Let’s face it, the gut is a hard sell. You cannot see it and you have probably never given it much thought. And yet, it is probably the most exciting subject in health right now. We are seeing so many breakthroughs in our understanding of how the gut works, why it is important, and what it means for the future of our health.

You need adequate levels of good bacteria

Not only are the billions of bacteria in your gut essential to how you digest food, they also provide vital enzymes and control the calories you absorb, linking the health of the gut directly to our weight. Whether you want to lose weight or not, whether you are one of the one in four people who struggle with a digestive issue, you can benefit. The evidence is there. Good gut health supports healthy digestion, natural immunity, and supports against unfavourable yeasts.

Are you at risk of lower levels of good bacteria?

Your levels of ‘good’ bacteria can be altered by many things including poor diet, antibiotics, stressful situations, low quality food, travel tummy, and ageing. And when the ratio of ‘good’ bacteria is lowered, health concerns may arise, including gas, bloating, low energy, constipation, diarrhoea, thrush, and decreased nutrient absorption — and that is when we need to replenish the ‘good’ bacteria.

Microbiotic support

Give your gut a helping hand with Udo’s Choice Super 8 Microbiotic. One daily capsule of Super 8 contains a huge 42 billion bacteria in eight distinct strains. Super 8 includes both lactobacilli, which are found in the small intestine, and bifidobacteria, found in the large intestine, meaning that the entire tract is covered. Compared to microbiotic yoghurts, rebalancing with Udo’s Choice Super 8 is faster, affordable, and best of all, sugar-free. Looking after the bacteria in your gut is like tending to a garden. A little work on a regular basis means that the whole ecosystem is kept healthy.

The good news

You are in charge of your gut health. What you eat and how you support your microbiome with specialist foods and supplements determines your personal pick ’n’ mix of gut bacteria that are then able to help keep your digestive system happy and healthy.
