How Gut Health Impacts Whole-Body Health
Why is it Important to Manage Gut Health?
When nourished appropriately, our bodies are majestically complex and innately healing modalities. All of our many biological processes function together in harmony with one another. Studies have even found that poor gut health can be linked to poor mental health and wounds that heal slowly can be linked to a poorly functioning liver. A poorly functioning liver, which also can be caused by poor gut health, is linked to dysregulated hormones and an inability to detoxify toxins, making you susceptible to disease.
As we age, achieving true health can become an even bigger challenge, which is why being proactive by eating healthy, exercising regularly, practicing stress management, healing from past trauma, and more can be immensely beneficial to combating the throes of time. This is why pursuing whole-body health – not leaving any one particular thing out of the equation – is mission-critical to longevity and vitality.
That’s why BPC-157, a peptide that protects your cells and boasts incredible healing properties is among the popular peptide treatments available today, especially for those with poor gut health or those in need of wound healing. Functioning also as an anti-ulcer agent, BPC-157 has remarkable healing potential for lesions in the pancreas, liver, and gastrointestinal tract.
How the Gut Impacts Your Body
One of the most multifaceted and complex areas of the body that has a profound effect on whole-body health is gut health. Diet and lifestyle factors such as poor sleep quality, alcohol consumption, chronic stress, and being sedentary can harm the bacteria in your gut and cause a domino effect of negative health outcomes. Symptoms of an unhealthy gut can range from having an upset stomach, gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, heartburn, unexplained weight changes, fatigue, skin irritation, autoimmune conditions, and food intolerances.
While the aforementioned symptoms are enough to stop most people in their tracks, unfortunately, the damage doesn’t stop there. A healthy gut facilitates a strong immune system, heart and brain health, improved moods and energy levels, restful sleep, and prevents certain cancers and autoimmune diseases. Poor gut health, however, causes the opposite. This is why it’s important to do everything in our power to support gut health since it is clear the impact it can make on whole-body health.
