Gut Health: The benefits of Prebiotics and Zinc

It’s important to keep your gut in a healthy state. Gut health relates to the function and balance of the bacteria from the different parts of the gastrointestinal tract. If your gut health is healthy, then food is efficiently broken down in your gut into a simple form and enters the bloodstream where the nutrients are delivered throughout the body. Hydration is required for overall good health, find out more about the right drink for hydration.

Importance of Gut Health

There are between 300 to 500 different species of bacteria in a person’s digestive tract1, many are beneficial and necessary for healthy body function. According to studies, a diverse gut microbiome can help fight obesity, improve depression symptoms, and enhance your immune system function1. Another benefit of good bacteria is that they multiply so that the unhealthy bacteria do not have space to grow. 

If you’re experiencing gut health problems, then some symptoms you may be experiencing include loose stools, constipation, nausea, or vomiting. However, if symptoms persist, then medical attention will be required – speak to your health professional immediately. Unintentional weight changes, sleep disturbances, constant fatigue, and skin irritation are other signs of an unhealthy gut1.

To improve your gut health, there are a few things you can do. Lowering your stress level, getting enough sleep, eating slowly, staying hydrated, consuming probiotics, checking for food intolerances, and changing your diet are a few methods to improve your gut health1. Another way of improving your gut health is through consuming Prebiotic and Zinc.



Benefits of Prebiotic powder and Zinc

Prebiotics is the 'food' that enables the growth of good bacteria in your gut. Prebiotics can be found in a range of fruits, vegetables, and legumes including bananas, berries, beans, garlic, and onions. Additional benefits of Prebiotics include helping with the absorption of calcium, fermenting foods faster so that they spend less time in your digestive system, helping to avoid constipation and keeping the cells that line your gut healthy.

Zinc is an essential nutrient for the body. Not only can it help support immune system health, heal wounds, and support brain development in children, but it is also critical for gut health. The addition of zinc can help strengthen the gut lining and can also help reduce diarrhoea frequency and severity. A zinc deficiency can alter the makeup of the bacteria in the gut.
