The Gut Our Second Brain

The Gut Our Second Brain

No longer is the digestive system viewed as a long tube that simply passes food along to deliver nutrition. Medical research over the past 20 years has in fact shown the gut to have a huge impact on overall health. Links between gut health and mood, mental health, the immune system, autoimmune diseases, endocrine disorders, skin conditions and cancer have been shown.

With this understanding we now know the importance of optimising gut health but what does this actually mean? What is good gut health and what are the implications of not looking after yours? How do you ensure you are doing the best for your gut?

Have a think back over the past few months. Have you experienced any of these commonly occurring problems?

  • Upset stomach
  • Increased sugar cravings
  • Unintentional weight changes
  • Sleep disturbances / constant fatigue
  • Skin irritation
  • Symptoms of an auto-immune condition
  • Food intolerances?

If so, it would be wise to take a look at your gut health and make some simple changes.

Take a look at ways in which you could lower your stress levels (often easier said than done!) make sure you are getting enough sleep, eat more slowly and reduce your intake of processed, high sugar/high-fat foods and stay well hydrated.


In addition to these changes, there are natural health products that can have a significant impact on optimising gut health. Taking a prebiotic and probiotic such as Forever Living’s pure inner leaf aloe vera gel and Forever Active Pro B can help a wide range of gut-related issues.
