Beauty from the Inside-Out: Why gut health is key for wellbeing

They say that beauty comes from within, and I couldn’t agree more. That’s because the health of our gut plays a crucial role in our overall wellbeing.

Numerous studies have shown that there are links between gut health and the immune system, mood, mental health, autoimmune diseases, endocrine disorders, skin conditions, and even cancer. This is because your gut is home to thousands of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi, each of which plays a different role in different bodily processes.

Unfortunately, however, many people’s gut health isn’t in top shape. Typical symptoms of this include allergies, dry skin, sinus issues, constipation, headaches, lethargy and low mood.

To rectify this, ingesting probiotics and changing your diet and lifestyle are good places to start, in addition to seeing a specialist health practitioner for more aggressive treatment. Probiotics can be found in foods like kombucha, sauerkraut, kefir, bone broth and certain yogurts, as well as on the shelf at your pharmacy. Getting sufficient sleep and staying hydrated can also help.

Collagen supplements like My Beauty Luv’s very own MBL 1.0 Himalayan Hydrolysed Type 1 Bovine Collagen and MBL 1.0 Pure Fish Hydrolysed Type 1 Collagen have been found to be useful for optimising gut health too. This is because collagen contains the amino acids glycine, glutamine and proline which are beneficial for the intestinal tract and stomach. Collagen supplements can also help to repair damage to the gut and aid with digestion. Best of all, supplements are easy to digest and absorb. All products in the My Beauty Luv range are free from fillers, binders, flow-agents, preservatives, additives, flavours, sugar, dairy, gluten, and wheat, making them better for your gut too.

Repairing gut health takes time, but most people aren’t willing to put in the effort. Not only does this then impact the efficacy of any ingestible health and beauty products you take, but it could also lead to more serious issues such as gout, diabetes and even Alzheimer's disease. If you take the time to tend to your gut, the benefits will be abundantly clear in all aspects of your health. Once your gut is optimal, ingestible products work like a bomb for the conditions that you are trying to target.

Take care of your gut, and it will take care of you!
