Strong immune defence begins in the gut
As a digestive organ, the gut (or intestine) ensures that the body is supplied with nutrients. The foods and supplements we consume are broken down (digested) along the digestive tract and in the gut, and the assorted vitamins and minerals are then distributed through the body to their main areas of action. Good digestive performance is thus essential for physical well-being.
But our gut can do much more than just help with digestion. The gut is also a vital part of the immune system. As the largest immune organ, a large amount of the immune system resides in the gut, so it’s important to promote good digestive health in order to support your natural immune system. The gut plays an important part in the body’s natural powers of defence. The 400 m2 surface area of the gut lining contains thousands of defence cells. Healthy gut flora, which consists of 400 to 500 different types of useful or “friendly” bacteria, support these cells in their important task of defending the body against unwanted intruders and pathogens, we sometimes call “bad bacteria”..
Gut flora can be disturbed by a combination of stress, drugs (especially antibiotics), poor eating habits and physical strain, and this disturbance may weaken the gut’s own immune system. However, if the gut flora is healthy, it forms a natural protective barrier against troublesome bacteria. Taking probiotics can help keep a healthy gut flora.
