Having poor digestive or gut health can significantly affect your overall health and wellness. Your gut is a microbiome of bacteria, and when the bacteria is unbalanced, you can have poor digestive health. This can cause unwanted gas, diarrhoea, bloating, constipation, feeling that some thing is not right, and many other symptoms.
The best way to deal with poor digestive and gut health is to get tested. Better2Know has different digestive and gut tests to help you determine what is wrong with your body. Whether you have coeliac disease or anaemia, it is best to find out quickly so you can start to treat it and/ or make the suggested lifestyle changes. Digestive issues can have terrible side effects, and the sooner you get diagnosed, the sooner you can begin to feel better.

Why is Gut Health Important?
Having good gut health is important for your digestive system. With a healthy gut, your body can digest foods easily and break them down into nutrients for your body. Not only is having strong gut health important for your digestive system, but it is also crucial for your immune system.
When your gut health is made up of good bacteria, it creates a strong barrier that prevents viruses from entering your bloodstream. Conversely, when you have poor gut health or a 'leaky gut', your immune system isn't as strong, and you can easily get sick.
Warning Signs You May Have an Unhealthy Gut
You may have an unhealthy gut if you have:
- Difficulty sleeping
- Constantly have an upset stomach
- Feel fatigued
- Are intolerant of certain foods
- Unintentionally lost or gained weight
- Skin irritations.
If you have any of these symptoms, you should look into getting tested for your digestive and gut health.
How to Improve Gut Health
Having good gut health means you have a healthy balance of bacteria in your gut that help your body break down foods. You can improve your gut health by eating foods that are rich in fibre. These include spinach, sweet potatoes, broccoli, and whole grains. Exercising regularly is also good for your microbiome and can increase the diversity of bacteria in your gut.
