The gastrointestinal tract has the important job of carrying food from the mouth to the stomach, absorbing its nutrients, and carrying waste out of the body. However, the gut impacts many aspects of health beyond digestion. Research shows that gut health is linked to the immune system, nervous system, hormones, skin health, and even more.
The gut microbiome refers to the network of bacteria found in the GI tract. There are both “good” and “bad” bacteria in this system, but as long as there is a healthy balance between them, the gut remains healthy. However, things like diet, lifestyle, medications, antibiotics, and viruses picked up during travel can upset the balance of healthy bacteria.
When this happens, the healthy bacteria is overrun, allowing the harmful bacteria to take over. This can result in digestive upset first and foremost, but can eventually lead to symptoms like inflammation, allergies, mental health issues, and chronic illnesses.
