About Gut health

”All disease starts in the gut” said Hippocrates circa 400BC. It is not surprising that ancient healers recognized the importance of gut health because your gut is home to friendly microbes that are incredibly important as they help us make neurotransmitters (like serotonin, for a happy mood), assist with our immune function, help us digest foods, manage weight, control inflammation and maintain brain health, to name but a few.

A healthy functioning gut is able to easily and effectively break down and process all the nutrients and fluids we consume and remove waste products efficiently. Healthy microbes flourish in a healthy gut, however, when gut health is poor, dysbiosis (an imbalance in the microbes living in our gut) can occur and may result in bloating, indigestion, constipation, or diarrhoea. Furthermore, a poor functioning gut may result in food intolerances, inflammation, nutrient deficiencies, and mood disorders.

Ever heard of the gut-brain axis? Your gut and brain are connected physically through millions of nerves, most importantly the Vagus Nerve (which represents the main component of the parasympathetic nervous system, overseeing a vast array of crucial bodily functions (including control of mood, immune response, digestion, and heart rate).

Each person is unique and so are his/her gut health needs. In general, however, it is recommended that a balanced mix of probiotics and prebiotics can optimize gut health and overall well-being.

The Phytoceutics™ Gut Health Range includes a variety of innovative, high quality, effective and highly researched products you can trust to help enhance your gut health.
