Common Question Answered In This Book
What does the gut do?
The gut actually starts with the mouth and teeth and ends in the large intestine. It is responsible for breaking down food, moving the food from the oesophagus to the stomach, digesting the food and passing undigested food out as stool.
What is the gut-brain connection?
The enteric nervous system (ENS) in the gut is closely linked to the central nervous system (CNS). The ENS has a two-way connection with the CNS and the two send out signals to each other when in trouble.
What is IBS?
Irritable Bowel Syndrome refers to changes in the functioning of the digestive system, leading to problems in the movement or motility of the digestive system.
What foods should I eat for a healthy gut?
Ginger, tulsi (holy basil), turmeric, apple cider vinegar, coconut water, cloves, cumin seeds and fennel seeds are some superfoods and spices you can add to your diet for better gut health.
What are probiotics and prebiotics?
Probiotics are the “good” bacteria that live in the gut and promote healthy digestion. Prebiotics are carbohydrates found in fibre-rich fruits and vegetables that are not digested by the gut. These pass through the gut, providing a food source for the probiotics, helping them thrive.
