Gut Health



Twenty years after the medical fraternity accepted the concept of mind and body, we are finally acknowledging the 'gut brain axis'.

This is not a vague concept but a firm fact; the gut and the brain are connected by the vagus nerve, and are in constant communication with each other, transmitting millions of signals every hour. If the gut is disturbed, the mind is affected and vice versa. It's one of the reasons we formulate our supplements into tapioca capsules rather than drops or sprays that bypass the digestive system. We actually want our bioactives to be working within the gut, interacting with the microbiome, gut wall and on the vagus nerve.

Worried Sick



Mental health problems can create or exacerbate gut problems such as IBS. Therefore, anything we can do to manage the stress in our lives better will make a difference. Whether that means regular exercise, breathing techniques or mindful colouring books.

One other little known fact is that there are more immune transactions within the gut in one day than in the rest of the body combined. So not only does gut health influence the nervous system, but also the immune system.

Most people experience digestive issues from time to time. This can be anything from an upset stomach to heartburn, nausea, constipation, diarrhoea or too much gas. If these symptoms occur frequently, then you're likely to have digestive health problems. These symptoms seem to exacerbate as we get older and our digestive system becomes less tolerant to the excesses of our lives.

Eat Well



Even simple changes like not drinking anything during meal times or 45 minutes after a meal can support the body in its digestion, waiting 4-5 hours between each meal allows the body to digest each wholesome meal properly, without interruption.

Keeping a food diary is a really helpful way to isolate problem foods and liquids, against specific times of day and even the emotions that may be affecting your digestion.

Sometimes, the problem food may seem obvious, such as gluten or lactose. But for many of us symptoms seem to come and go, so one day we can eat bread without any issue and another day it just seems to wreak havoc with our bodies and energy levels.

You can support your digestive system by taking natural remedies in the form of digestive health supplements. Our range of natural digestive remedies with prebiotics offer effective solutions and gentle support for stomach and gut health.
