It is no new school of thought that the foods we eat can serve medicinal purposes. Thousands of years ago, the ancient Greeks proposed that the foods we eat should nourish and heal us from the inside out. Today, research has proven this to be true. At Glenilen Farm, we know that eating yoghurt provides our bodies with loads of overall health benefits, specifically when it comes to our gut.
The gut-brain relationship
The recently discovered gut-brain axis, or gut-brain relationship refers to the vagus nerve, which carries signals from our digestive system, or gut, to our brain and vice-versa. As the two are connected, it comes as no surprise that what lives in our gut (trillions of bacteria!) also affects our brain. Maintaining a stable gut microbiota is essential to a healthy gut, and therefore a healthy mind. We can achieve a healthy gut by ensuring good bacteria are the predominant bacteria in our digestive tract.
Our range of yoghurts are a source of calcium. You can enjoy them as part of your varied, well-balanced diet, and healthy lifestyle. Calcium is well known for its benefits in maintaining your bones and teeth. Calcium supports the normal functioning of your digestive enzymes which helps with your gut health. As we all know, a healthy gut is a happy gut, which is essential for your overall wellbeing.
