Gut flora is a complex mix of microbes and micro-organisms. This composition of microbiome can affect many aspects of your health.
When your digestive system is working correctly you will generally feel great. Your gut controls our immune function, stress levels, and digestion. When the microbiome in our digestive system is malfunctioning, our body will begin to show signs of malfunctioning and potentially throwing your body into chaos.
The nervous and immune system will also become impaired if the hormonal function is not correctly operating. To ensure that your body and digestive tract runs smoothly, it is imperative to maintain a colony of healthy gut flora.
Positive gut flora helps the body absorb nutrients, utilising vitamins and battling infections, protecting our body from disease, carcinogens and also assist in regulating the metabolism.

To maintain a healthy gut flora you must make sure you are eating foods that contain friendly probiotic bacteria. Incorporate the following foods into your diet regularly and will create a healthy gut flora:
