A look into the importance of gut-health in overall health and well-being

Increasing attention is being given to the human gut due to its critical role in digestion, nutrient absorption, and immune function. A healthy gut, while difficult to define, is associated with overall physical and mental well-being, devoid of GI symptoms, diseases, or risks. The gut-brain axis, illustrating the interaction between the gut and brain, reveals the microbiome's impact on substances affecting brain function. Recognizing this correlation, consumers are increasingly seeking solutions like probiotics, prebiotics, fibers, and fermented foods to support gut health. Consequently, the food and beverage industry are actively innovating products to promote digestive health.
