How Diarrhea Affects your Gut Health
Your gut is home to billions of good bacteria that work to support your immune system, digest food and synthesize vitamins and maintain the health of your central nervous system. Many doctors explain the gut as the “second brain” of the body affecting everything from mood swings to overall health and wellness.
During diarrhea, your body does not discern good from bad and also rids itself of fluids and electrolytes as well as the good bacteria in your gut. Diarrhea can cause a significant disruption to your gut bacteria which leaves you weakened and can lead to other health issues. Given the pivotal role your gut bacteria play and the imbalance a bout of diarrhea can cause, it’s important to resolve diarrhea safely and effectively while also nourishing the gut.
