I can’t imagine how many people walk around with an uncomfortable gut, and how many of us just accept it. Gut health is definitely not something that should be compromised (even if I was guilty of this!)
There is a reason people say “go with your gut” – It’s pretty important, according to research, the brain-gut connection means that an irritated gut can affect your mental health and mood.
It is recognized as an integral part of our nervous system, so the brain can affect its function.
I personally have suffered with ‘tummy issues’ for as long as I can remember, I could go weeks without going to the toilet, and suffer a very sore swollen stomach for long periods of time. Cutting out gluten and cutting back on dairy was significant in helping these issues, though I would never say my gut has ever felt 100%.
I had been recommended Symprove by a friend who really has had to resolve some health issues from the inside out, she absolutely swore by the stuff and insisted I give it a go! Symprove gave me the nudge I needed and sent me their 12-week plan to try out!
Digestion involves the mechanical and chemical breakdown of food into smaller components that can be more easily absorbed and assimilated by the body. A host of digestive organs work in harmony to ensure that we are able to extract the nutrients from food to power demands of the body.
Many things can affect micronutrient absorption, including medication, lifestyle choices such as alcohol, cigarettes, irregular meals or sleep, and stress.
Symprove is a multi-strain, live and active bacteria that can help support a healthy balance of bacteria in the gut, which can easily be disrupted by the list above. It contains 4 of the unique strains of live bacteria, these include: L. rhamnosus, E. faecium, L. acidophilus, and L. plantarum. Normally a healthy gut would already contain all four of these, however when it doesn’t, it can soon become unbalanced.
I am currently about to start my fourth week on Symprove, and I have already noticed a difference, I start the day with a shot of it before my breakfast, and haven’t felt bloated or uncomfortable in weeks. I am looking forward to finishing the 12 weeks and reporting back!
