Digestive health has become an important topic in the last few years with people realising it influences and contributes to a lot of conditions especially those with our skin.
Why is digestive health important?
Digestive health is important to provide our body with the functions such as nutrient absorption, digestion of sugars and proteins as without these performing optimally we would see ourselves starting to have stomach problems, bloating, feeling sluggish in the morning, lack of energy just to name a few. A fun fact for you is that almost 70% of the body’s immune system is actually located in our digestive system so you can see how important it really is to maintain good gut health.
What are some of the signs of poor digestive health?
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Dull Skin
Can stress effect your digestive system?
It most certainly can. When a person is under stress we see their heart rate rise and blood pressure go up which affects the blood flow around our bodies and often towards our limbs. This redirection of blood flow leads to reduced contraction of the digestive muscles and affects how optimally the gut works often causing inflammation and increases our likelihood of infection. It is important to find ways to relieve stress for example by exercise or meditation.
