Gut Health

Why does Gut Health Matter?

The human body is populated by an entire ecosystem of microbes (our microbiome). Some of these are beneficial (possibly even vital) to the body’s functions and processes, and others can be harmful. It’s important, therefore, to ensure that our bodies are populated with the right kinds of bacteria and other microbes. The ecosystem of microbiota that live in our guts play a hugely important role in many aspects of our health. The composition of each person’s gut bacteria is unique; for a person to remain healthy, it’s important that they have a diverse range of thriving colonies of the right types of microbes. Poor gut health is increasingly being linked to a range of health problems, including:
  • Inflammation (including Arthritis, Asthma, IBS, and Gout)
  • Obesity
  • Weakened immune system
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Mental health problems (including Depression, Stress, and Anxiety)
  • Low energy levels

You may well have heard of the term ‘probiotic’, particularly in reference to certain types of yoghurt. Probiotics are live beneficial microorganisms, which can be safely consumed with the intent to improve a person’s health. Probiotics are found in yoghurts and other fermented foods, as well as certain supplements.

To keep your gut health balanced and healthy, probiotics are an important part of a balanced diet, as are prebiotics. These are foods which feed your beneficial microbiota, and help them to thrive. It’s vital to provide the right environment in your gut to allow a healthy ecosystem of microbes to flourish.

Inside every bottle of Nutra Kombucha is a thriving, living, diverse ecosystem of microbes. The diversity of microbes living in our kombucha is what makes this drink so exciting!

You may well have an inkling that your gut health could be poor if you suffer from a wide array of health issues that could range from niggling, to life-impacting.

But how can you know for sure? And where can you get advice on how to improve it?

We’ve partnered with NeoVos to give you those answers.

How do they test your gut health?

The biologists at the Neovos lab have developed a test that allows them to look for Short-Chain Fatty Acids, or SCFAs in fecal samples.

SCFAs are the most abundant products of gut bacteria, and are therefore an important biomarker of gut performance and health.

If you would like to know more about this, you can download the information here.

By examining the quantities of SCFAs produced in your body, they are able to see how well your gut is functioning. That means they can give you a detailed summary of the state of your gut health, what that means for you, and recommendations for diet and lifestyle changes that could improve your health.
