Gut Health - Top 3 Influences

Author -  Good Health

Different factors play their part in how our bowel operates on a daily basis, as well as our long-term gut health. Let’s explore 3 top things that can affect your daily bowel habits:

 

 

1. Stress:

- Stress can also make wind, bloating, or discomfort felt more easily
- Stress can induce muscle spasms in the bowel, leading to daily discomfort
- Stress increases gut motility resulting in bowel inconsistency or irregularity

 

2. Sleep:

- Interrupted sleep or trouble sleeping can lead to an unrelaxed bowel
- Oversleeping can considerably slow down bowel contraction, affecting regularity
- Sleep deprivation can lead to potential irritation and inflammation of the gut lining

3. Prolonged Sitting:

- A sedentary lifestyle can influence how efficiently bowel movements proceed
- Can cause your abdomen to compress, which slows down digestion
Issues such as bloating, heartburn and constipation can potentially worsen

It’s necessary to be aware of the factors that can alter and influence our everyday digestion. We now know in summary that stress, lack of sleep and prolonged sitting after eating can compress the abdominal cavity, slow digestion down or affect contractibility of the bowel, leading to further digestive concerns such as: heartburn, reflux, colic, alternating diarrhoea and constipation. Being aware of this means that we can make positive changes to support healthier, more optimal digestion in the long term.
