New year, new goals… But what do we know about gut health?

It’s the new year, that means we can start the year on the right foot!

A lot of people usually make New Year’s resolutions, and the most popular resolution or intention usually seems to revolve around health and fitness.

But with diet and fitness, you need to understand how your body reacts to foods and certain exercises. And the question about gut health pops up, what is and what is a leaky gut?

Dietician, Carol Bell, at Board Health in Traverse City helps us with that. Taking care of our health is important, and if you suffer from uncomfortable bloating or have trouble going to the bathroom, it’s probably your gut. Your gut is your body’s entire gastrointestinal tract, so it revolves around how your body digests food and absorbs essential nutrients.

Many people have food sensitivities and allergies, which can impact your gut health. Be careful what you choose to put into your body, such as processed foods, excessive salts, sugars and fats. Pesticides, medications, and even chronic stress can affect the gut. For more information on gut health and what to look for, CLICK HERE.
