The missing link between gut health and the mind
Most people know nutrient absorption and the elimination of waste is dependent on a healthy digestive system, but few realise this whole area also affects immunity, inflammation and other key bodily functions. Researchers are now treating the gut as an organ* which is the bedrock of a healthy lifestyle.
Everyday stress, pollution and indeed life itself, can impact negatively on the number of good bacteria in the body, and can cause what is known as “microbiome imbalance”. This is where the levels of good and bad bacteria which normally live harmoniously are out of whack, causing all sorts of uncomfortable issues. Thankfully, that’s where Renew Life’s probiotic (also known as live bacteria) portfolio can help. Renew Life’s cast list of extensively researched strains, can help provide more of the good-for-you bacteria that occur in a naturally healthy gut to restore your natural balance, all in a convenient one-a-day dose!
What’s more (and here’s the real kicker), as researchers have shown our microbiome has a direct impact on our immune systems*, they could help provide the “missing link” that leads to a healthy mind, body and soul.
Indeed, a common strain of “good” bacteria called Lactobacillus plantarum (often found in probiotic supplements) has been linked to lower stress levels, leading experts to believe a healthy, balanced gut may help us all keep cool when under duress.

“Your gut is like your body’s engine, and the key to keeping you functioning. Just like a car, when your engine isn’t operating correctly, you won’t get very far”
Inside each Renew Life probiotic, high potency live cultures and multi strains help support the estimated 40 trillion cells which live naturally in your body. You really cannot overstate the importance of a healthy gut.
After all, an incredible 70 per cent of your immune system lives in your digestive tract. And as blogger Kim Lee (aka Kim’s Cravings) says: “Digestive health is an essential component at the centre of everything. We all want to be our best and it’s important to remember this starts from within: literally.”
