Gut Health

By SIYAH ORGANICS Sun, Mar 21, 21

Gut health” describes the function and balance of bacteria of the many parts of the gastrointestinal tract.

Ideally, organs such as the esophagus, stomach and intestines all work together to allow us to eat and digest food without discomfort.

The human gut is more complex than previously thought and has a huge impact on whole-body health. A healthy gut contributes to a strong immune system, heart health, brain health, improved mood, healthy sleep, and effective digestion, and it may help prevent some cancers and autoimmune diseases.

When your body doesn't have enough good bacteria, bad bacteria can thrive. The following can be signs of a gut bacteria imbalance: Autoimmune problems, such as thyroid issues, rheumatoid arthritis and type 1 diabetes. Digestive issues, such as irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, diarrhea, heartburn or bloating.

SIYAH ORGANICS offers you the possibility to find a medicinal plant that could help healing your Gut and Gastrointestinal health issues.

Baobab Fruit Powder’s effectiveness as a prebiotic has been proven both in research and in its traditional use in Africa.

Researchers have discovered that Baobab Fruit Powder has a positive prebiotic effect on key groups of probiotic gut flora. 

Compared to controls, they found Baobab Fruit Powder promoted significant increases in the production of two of the three key bacterial groups; Bifidobacteri and Lattobacilli

Just as important was the finding that it only took small amounts of Baobab Fruit to affect the good bacteria.

 

Baobab has also traditionally been used in African populations to relieve diarrhea, constipationand dysentery. 

Its Prebiotic fiber acts as food for the good bacteria in your gut, which helps keep the whole microbiome balanced.
