First, let’s talk about the G word

Your gut includes everywhere from your mouth to your bum.

And it plays a huge role in keeping our immune system and digestive health perky. Your gut health can even impact your mental wellbeing. 

We think gut health is the most exciting area of medical science.

How's that then?

It’s where 70% of our body’s defensive immune cells hang out. So if your gut’s not happy, you’re more likely to get sick.

A healthy gut helps reduce cortisol (a stress hormone), and 90% of the body’s serotonin (the happy hormone) is produced in the gut, so keeping your gut healthy is good for your mental health too.

And better digestive health helps speed up recovery after sport, reduce the risk of heart attacks, diabetes and even Parkinson’s disease!

Our gut is also known as our ‘second brain’ because of the way it communicates with the brain directly and all our other vital organs. Maybe that’s why we have ‘gut’ instincts.

And now that you know a bit about your gut, and how important it is, you'll notice the big "LOVE YOUR GUT" stamp on our new Active Cultures bars, which we've made specially to help look after your gut health!
