Why is a Healthy Gut so Important?

Think about it: over 100 trillion bacterial cells living inside your body, a lot of them working full time to keep you healthy. Those are the good guys—called probiotics—that studies say are connected to everything from good digestion to a healthy immune system, so it’s no wonder keeping things in balance seems so important.

Keeping your immune system strong*
At least 70% of your immune system is in your gut. It’s where those good bacteria help protect your body from outside invaders so you can stay feeling good. But things like stress, an unhealthy diet and even a change in routine can upset your internal balance, which is why taking a daily probiotic supplement is often recommended to help you get additional good bacteria.*

A happier, healthier tummy*
With all those bacteria hanging out in your gut, it’s no wonder they’re tied to good digestion. And the more good guys you have, the more they help keep things in balance—which helps to reduce occasional gas, bloating and stomach discomfort.* A well-balanced gut is also important for regular bowel movements!*

But the benefits don’t stop there
With each new study, scientists are learning that our gut bacteria may be even more vital to our health than we once believed. In fact, research has linked a balanced and diverse gut (meaning it has lots of different types of good bacteria) to heart health, brain health, better vision, a healthy weight, improvements in mood and memory, better sleep and more.
