Shopping for Digestion Strategic Report 2014
One of the most overlooked aspects of our wellbeing is the status of our digestive health. Our gut health is important for everything from digestion, metabolism, muscle development, and immunity from diseases to bacterial imbalances that may cause serious health issues. The 2013 IRI report How America Eats stated that the number one health issue consumers are trying to control through food is digestive health-bloating, diarrhea, gas, etc.
The human body carries about 100 trillion microorganisms in its intestines, a number ten times greater than the total number of human cells in the body. The imbalances between the estimated 300 and 1000 different species can affect our bodies digestion and health.
This report will focus on foods that can support or impair digestive health. The first shield against digestive problems is to keep the bacteria in balance and that means ingesting probiotics-the good bacteria.
