How Gut Health Affects Metabolism


Let's pause for a moment and and look at the connection between gut health and metabolism. If you've been feeling like your metabolism is out of whack and you're searching for answers, you're in the right place.



1️⃣ Energy Absorption: Gut microbes produce short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs), which can provide extra energy when produced in excess. This surplus energy is absorbed from the gut, potentially affecting metabolic balance.


2️⃣ Appetite Regulation: Gut microbes influence levels of gut hormones like peptide YY and GLP-1, which communicate with the brain to regulate appetite and feelings of fullness.


3️⃣ Fat Storage: Certain gut microbes may increase the absorption of glucose from the intestines and contribute to fat deposition in the liver, impacting metabolic health.


4️⃣ Inflammation: Chronic inflammation, often driven by gut inflammation, is a key factor in metabolic dysfunction and can disrupt metabolic processes.

Here's the bottom line: healing the gut can have a ripple effect on metabolism, making it easier to achieve balance and vitality. While you don't need to be an expert on these mechanisms (that's what I'm here for), understanding the link between gut health and metabolism can empower you on your journey toward better health.
