Healthy gut, healthy you

Are you or your child suffering from constipation, diarrhoea or bloating?

Our digestive system determines 70% of our body’s immune system. Thus, it is essential to keep a healthy gut, given how closely it is linked to our overall health and well-being. Give your child a head start in life with good health. Start by looking after their gut health.

One of the most common gut issues facing adults today is irritable bowel syndrome, constipation and colon cancer. For children, there is a rising incidence of constipation, which can lead to issues like lack of focus in school and falling sick often as the body is not purged of toxins regularly. This highlights the importance of gut health and the need to pay more attention to it, whether you are young or old.


ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS FOR A HEALTHY GUT


1. Probiotic
Probiotics are the friendly bacteria in our body. They help move food through our body, and fight off harmful bacteria that invade the gut. When the good bacteria multiply, they inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria. Some probiotic food sources include: yogurt, cultured drinks, miso soup, sauerkraut, fermented soft cheeses, and sourdough bread.

2. Prebiotic
Prebiotics are food for the probiotics. They are a type of plant fibre that stimulates the growth and activity of the good bacteria. Prebiotics can be found in some food, but the amount is very small (about 1g per serving). Some prebiotic food sources include: banana, celery, spinach, artichoke, asparagus, and oatmeal.

3. Fibre
The Singapore Health Promotion Board recommends a daily fibre intake of 20g (for women) and 26g (for men). Many people have inadequate dietary fibre intake due to their busy lifestyles. According to a research by Singhealth, the average daily intake of dietary fibre is only 13g, which is less than two thirds of the recommended daily amount. Some fibre food sources include: beans, whole grains, brown rice, nuts, berries, and bran cereal.

 


HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT SUPPLEMENTS FOR YOUR GUT


Probiotic products are very common in the market nowadays. It is important to select strains which have been shown scientifically to have beneficial effects to our gut. Supplement should contain prebiotics to aid the growth of the probiotics ingested and should include dietary fibre to supplement our daily requirements. The hectic lifestyle today has made it difficult and costly for us to build up the good bacteria population in our gut through food alone. Thus, supplements serve as a convenient and economical way of helping us build a good bacteria population in our gut, thereby promoting gut health.

HOW OTHER FAMILIES HAVE EMBRACED A HEALTHY GUT



Seven-year-old Kylie Chew used to experience irregular bowels, getting constipation on a regular basis. As she prefers meat, she was not getting enough vegetables in her diet. So Mr KK Chew started his daughter on BRAND'S InnerShine Pre+Probiotics.

After a week, he noticed a marked improvement in her toilet habits. Kylie says she’s glad she no longer has to bear the unpleasantness of constipation. “Now, after every meal, I just help myself to a pack of the supplement, pour it into a cup of water, stir and drink! So easy. And it’s nice to drink.”

Recently, Mr Chew takes it for himself too. “We often eat out as a family. I sometimes get bloatedness, diarrhoea or constipation.” Compared to milk cultured drinks, he feels that it provides faster and more effective relief. “And I like that it has a lot more benefits, with a lot less sugar.”

Mr Chew and his daughter are glad to have found their solution to their gut issues. Like them, you and your family can keep a healthy gut with BRAND’S InnerShine Pre+Probiotics.
