Eye Opening Truths On Women’s Gut Health

We’re sharing some eye opening truths surrounding women’s gut health. 👩🏻‍⚕️🌿

1. Many women feel guilty about their gut issues and ultimately go undiagnosed. When they feel bloated or constipated, they typically blame it on something they’ve eaten. Dr. Ellen Vora shares, “Women tend to blame themselves for just about everything. We may think to ourselves: ‘I didn’t eat cleanly enough, so now I pay the price.’” This ongoing problem highlights the lack of conversation surrounding digestive issues.

2. Gut problems aren’t limited to your digestive system. Dr. Ellen Vora explains, “We think that if we have bloating or diarrhea, it means our gut is unhealthy, but we fail to recognize that it has profound downstream ramifications for our health. That dysfunction is not limited to your gut, but in fact impacts your mental health, your hormones, your period, your skin, your joints, your energy, your immunity, your risk of developing an autoimmune disease, and just about everything else.”

3. Women’s microbiomes are different than men’s. “For one thing, women’s gut microbiomes shift with our cycles,” Dr. Ellen Vora explains. In addition, your gut flora is impacted by female-focused products including makeup, perfume, and birth control, and it can also be affected by female-specific life events such as pregnancy. Bottom line: Your gut-health issues aren’t just about what you eat and do for your body. There are many factors—that are often out of your hands—affecting your flora.

What’s Trending – Probiotic Growth

What’s Trending – Probiotics Market Growth in Coming Years👨🏼‍⚕️💊

With the rising growth and awareness surrounding digestive issues (such as SIBO and IBS), the market for nutritional supplements is also on the rise. Probiotics provide numerous health benefits, particularly for the digestive tract. Products including yogurt, fermented foods, kimchi, kefir, kombucha, and sauerkraut naturally contain probiotics. There’s a rapid increase in demand for these products as the probiotic market is expected to continually grow. This rising production scale poses growth for companies in the food and beverage industry including Nestle and PharmaCare Laboratories. Companies are launching products such as probiotic juice and chocolate bars. Probiotics can balance gut microflora, treat diarrhea, improve mental health, reduce allergies, and prevent digestive disorders.
