Gut health will show up in our overall health and energy. Gut health is having that balance in your microbiome – your large intestine and your small intestine – the good bacteria and the bad bacteria. There has to be a really good balance instead of one overpowering the other. Our health shows up not only in our skin and in our energy, but we will feel it if we’re out of whack.
You might be bloated, you may feel just lethargic, or you may have headaches. Being dehydrated, not sleeping well, having an upset stomach or acid reflux, and skin breakouts – there are a lot of symptoms. So making sure that you’re eating a variety of different foods that support your gut health, to give you a more complete and thriving microbiome.
