Gut health and how important it is

A healthy lifestyle can be hampered with medical issues. Supplementing a diet with the correct minerals and supplements can aid recovery and offset many issues we have to deal with. If you’re feeling depressed or negative, or suffer from gut problems such as IBS and diverticulitis, ask us about probiotics.

The gut is often referred to as the ‘second’ brain because it contains the same tissue and can produce many of the same chemical messengers as the brain. If you have ever experienced ‘butterflies in your stomach’ or a ‘gut feeling’ then you have experienced the ‘Gut-Brain Connection’. Around 90 per cent of the body’s serotonin, the mood-balancing neurotransmitter in the brain, is found in the gut. So, eating food to balance gut bacteria (eg, live yoghurt, fruit, vegetables and whole grains) and supplementing with a good probiotic, is vital and will have a positive effect on gut health and on your mood.

We have a wide selection of probiotics to suit all the family and every lifestyle.
