So lets talk about this...Poor gut health is a sign of poor overall health. Okay... thats sounds pretty harsh, right?


More correctly, if you have poor gut health, your overall health is suffering as a result. You have more bacteria cells in your gut than you have human cells in your ENTIRE body. You have a lot of cells in your body - roughly 37.2 trillion! But you actually have far more bacteria: about 10 times as many. Crazy, right?


If your gut is unhealthy, those bacteria are unhealthy, and you’re unhealthy by default. So all the fitness, and 1 cup of kale per day (lol..just kidding I know its way more than that) is not as beneficial as it could be for you. Since your calories and nutrients pass through your gut before they become available to you, the health of your gut influences the health of every part of your body.


Poor gut health isn’t only caused by unhealthy bacteria, but they are a major cause. Consider that many autoimmune issues, irritable bowel syndrome, lifestyle habits are linked to an imbalance of healthy and unhealthy bacteria.

A healthy gut is able to process and eliminate waste with minimal difficulties. Regular gastrointestinal distress can be a sign of a serious issue.

  4. Fatigue. Fatigue is another common symptom found in those suffering from poor gut health. If you’re frequently tired without explanation, your gut may be to blame.

  5. If you frequently suffer from fatigue, consider how much sleep you’ve been getting. If you’re getting plenty of sleep and you’re still tired, you might want to consider the possibility that your gut is to blame

  6. Unexplained changes in weight. It’s possible that poor gut health can lead to either weight gain or weight loss. If your diet and exercise are unchanged and your weight is changing significantly, you might have an issue in your gut. Gut issues can affect your body’s ability to digest and absorb nutrients.

  7. Autoimmune disorders. There are numerous autoimmune disorders that can either be caused by, or exacerbated by, poor gut health. The bad bacteria in your gut are able to travel around the body and create inflammation in various tissues and organs.

  8. This inflammation is a major cause of many diseases. Some medical experts believe this type of inflammation might possibly be responsible for nearly all diseases.

  9. Skin ailments. Skin difficulties, such as psoriasis, acne, eczema, and rosacea can all be
