Ask yourself: Are you exceeding more than 10-20 trumps a day (yes, 10-20 pops are considered normal)? Or are you having to rush to the loo, or having problems, whether daily or intermittent, to go when you need to? This is your gut’s way of talking to you, and it’s telling you that something is not quite right.
If problems persist we recommend you consult with your doctor or other health care professional.
Gut health... did you know?
Your colon (large intestine) is home to billions of microbes, – not just bacteria, but also yeast, viruses and parasites.
These microbes help break down fibre, and produce chemicals (such as short-chain fatty acids) linked to a host of health benefits. This feasting and fermentation also releases some gases (like hydrogen and methane).
However, if your gut bugs are out of balance (known as ‘dysbiosis’), excess methane can be made – resulting in bloating, wind and constipation.
Adequate fibre is key to this whole process to ensure waste
continues to move through the body for you to pass easily.
