Gut health is becoming a concern for consumers who want to improve their body systems, with 45% of them considering it to be extremely important to the body’s health, according to a recent study by Health Focus International. Therefore, the digestive system is known as the “gateway to wellness”.
In order to keep the digestive system working well, customers tend to buy specific smart products, such as prebiotics, probiotics and enzymes. All those are essential to improving gut health. But the saying “You are what you eat” doesn’t necessarily ring true because we don’t always absorb everything we consume. More accurately, “You are what you absorb and digest.”
Improving the absorbing process
With that in mind, improving the absorbing process of all the nutrients we consume must be a top concern for those that understand the influence of alimentation in all body systems. One of the elements pointed out as a good solution for better digestive health is microbiome and microbiota – they are important not only for digestion, but also for immune and cognitive systems.
Therefore, now is the time to keep focusing on microbiome and microbiota studies in order to bring better and smarter solutions for those that already understood the importance of gut health for the body.
