8 Signs of an Unhealthy Gut please read.

  1. Digestive distress
    Gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, Hemorrhoids and heartburn can all be signs of an unhealthy gut.
  2. Sugar & Carb cravings
    A diet high in processed foods and added sugars can decrease the amount of good bacteria in your gut and feed bacteria that is not optimal. This imbalance can cause increased sugar cravings, which can damage your gut further.
  3. Unintentional Weight Changes
    Gaining or losing weight without making changes to your diet or exercise habits may be a sign of an unhealthy gut. An imbalanced gut can impair your body’s ability to break down foods, absorb nutrients, regulate blood sugar, and store fat.
  4. Sleep disturbances
    The majority of the body’s melatonin, our hormone that influences sleep, is produced in the gut. Gut damage can impair your ability to sleep while also impacting your body’s ability to repair and restore.
  5. Anxiety, Depression and Irritability
    When your gut microbes are out of balance, they do not produce the neurotransmitters Serotonin, gaba and dopamine which are responsible for mood regulation and feeling relaxed. Without these essential neurotransmitters, our brain cannot cope with the stressors of daily life. There’s no wonder our gut is often called our “second brain”.
  6. Skin Irritation
    Inflammation in the gut may cause increased “leaking” of certain proteins out into the body, which can in turn irritate the skin and cause conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne.
  7. Autoimmune Conditions
    Medical researchers are continually finding new evidence of the impact of the gut on the immune system. It’s thought that an unhealthy gut may increase systemic inflammation and alter the proper functioning of the immune system. This can lead to autoimmune diseases, where the body attacks itself rather than harmful invaders.
