Digestive Health Month: How to keep your Gut Healthy

by Brian P. Ramos

Did you know that your intestinal lining alone has a surface area of about 400 meters squared? The health of your digestive system is essential to ensure proper digestion and absorption of nutrients, as well as to support the function of other body systems, such as the immune and nervous systems.

The health of the gastrointestinal system, particularly the gut microbiome, even impacts mental health through its connection with the central nervous system, often referred to as the gut-brain axis. I have discussed extensively this topic in previous articles that I recommend you check out. These are found both here on Medium (1) and on my YouTube channel, DNA Hacker Secrets, (2, 3).

The digestive system is made up of digestive organs, such as the stomach, small intestine, and large intestine (colon), as well as accessory organs, such as the pancreas, liver, and gallbladder, and various chemical compounds, such as hormones, stomach acid, bile, and digestive enzymes. The gut microbiome, a community of live microorganisms found in high concentrations in the colon, are also essential to digestion and gut health. Several lifestyle choices, such as eating a healthy diet, increased intake of live, whole plant-based foods rich in healthy bacteria, raw kombucha, exercising regularly, staying hydrated, managing stress, and supporting your health with dietary

supplements, can help you maintain digestive wellness.
