Did you know that your gut health is the key to general wellbeing, health and great skin?
So what does good gut health actually mean?
In our guts we have billions of bacteria, good and bad and ideally we want a variety of different types of friendly bacteria to help keep balanced and the microflora in our gut healthy. When we have too much bad bacteria, we can feel tired, have skin flare ups, digestive issues and can affect our general health as it can compromise our immune system so it is important that we maintain good gut health.
You can find natural live cultures of friendly bacteria in certain foods such as cheese, yoghurt, kefir, kombucha, kimchi and many more but you would need to eat a large quantity of varied foods to get the different types of friendly bacteria that your gut needs. This is where prebiotic supplements come in. Prebiotics are a quick and easy way of making sure you get the variety of live cultures and and thus good gut health, great skin and make you feel balanced.
