The gut harbours approximately one hundred trillion microbes which play a vital role in our health and wellness. Bacteria are the main species of microbes living in our gut and these have been shown to influence our mood, behaviour and weight. Poor dietary habits such as consuming refined food, high sugar consumption and processed junk are creating dysfunction in the gut. This dysfunction may lead to a leaky gut which has been shown to increase allergies, intolerances, inflammation and fatigue. Learning how to improve gut health is important to help bring balance back into the body’s ecosystem and to start feeling more energized.
