As a gastroenterologist who has worked with patients for many years, I know only too well how challenging it can be for those who struggle with ongoing digestive discomfort.
Bloating, excess gas, heartburn, and irregular or too frequent bowel movements can make you feel quite uncomfortable and affect both your mental and physical well-being.
Why managing your microbiome balance is so vital
An imbalance in the gut microbiome has often proved to be the root of many troublesome health issues. It can also be the underlying culprit in causing everything from blemished and sensitive skin to bad breath, headaches, low mood, weight gain, weakened immunity, itchy skin and dry, flaky scalp.
Having a few of these symptoms bothering you may indicate that your gut microbiome is struggling and lacking the essential good bacteria it needs to thrive.
What can go wrong?
Many lifestyle factors, such as stress, excess sugar, alcohol, travel, illness, certain prescription medications, and, in particular, antibiotics, can upset the delicate balance of your microbiome.
Your gut does a lot of the good work to keep us well.
Your digestive system's key role is to break down the food you eat to help you absorb the vital nutrients you need from your food, such as vitamins and minerals, so having a healthy digestive system that functions well means we get much better nutrition from the foods we eat as well as getting the waste removed that we don’t need.
Beyond digestion, did you know that most of your immune system is also in your digestive tract? So, those with poor digestive systems often struggle more with viruses like colds and flu.
They say the gut is the second brain, and that is because many of your feel-good neurotransmitters like serotonin (AKA the happy hormone) are created in the gut, which is why people with low mood struggles are often recommended to improve their diet to take care of their gut health.
In summary, maintaining intestinal balance is important to the health of your body and mind.

Happy customer testimonial for PROBIO+ Jo Stone, 70, London
“After suffering with terrible IBS for over three years and trying numerous diets to alleviate my symptoms, I had almost given up. I was not feeling good at all; it affected all areas of my life and made me feel and look exhausted. My daughter kindly purchased the Correxiko PROBIO+ for me a few months ago, hoping it would help me feel better for my 70th birthday party. I took one capsule each day with my breakfast and one with my dinner, and within a week, I was amazed not to be bloated and feeling the need to run to the bathroom nonstop. It’s been three months now, and there are still no symptoms! I feel energised, my mood has improved, and look more like myself again.”
Menopause and gut health
The gut microbiota, which consists of trillions of bacteria, viruses, and fungi, plays a crucial role in various aspects of human health. Studies have shown that the composition of the gut microbiota can change during menopause and influence gut health in several ways:
Gastrointestinal Symptoms: Some postmenopausal women report gastrointestinal symptoms like bloating, constipation, or diarrhoea. While the direct link between menopause and these symptoms is not firmly established, early studies have linked hormonal fluctuations with these symptoms.
Bone Health and Gut Microbiota: Postmenopausal women are at a higher risk of osteoporosis due to the decline in oestrogen levels. Gut microbiota plays a role in bone health by influencing nutrient absorption and modulating inflammation.
Weight Gain and Fat Distribution: Many women experience weight gain and a shift in fat distribution during and after menopause. The gut microbiota has been shown to influence body weight and fat storage, and changes in its composition can contribute to these shifts in body composition.
Immune Function: The gut is a major immune hub, and the gut microbiota plays a significant role in modulating immune responses. Changes in hormone levels during menopause can affect immune function, increasing susceptibility to common colds and flus.
