Supplements For Gut Health
Maintaining a healthy gut is important for our overall health and wellness, and it is crucial to the functioning of the body.
A healthy gut microbiome and good gut health has been linked to mental health, heart health, neurological conditions and other bodily functions. Neglecting the health of our gastrointestinal digestive tract can have adverse effects on our health.
It’s important to look after our gut microbiome and feed it with good bacteria. These good bacteria can then colonise our gut and therefore assist in bodily functions such as digestion, producing and braking down vitamins and minerals from food, and immunity support.
The current Western diet can be very damaging to gut bacteria, so by implementing certain supplements and vitamins into our diet, we can support our gut health microbiome, therefore, optimising its function.
Here’s a list of supplements that are believed to boost the health of our gastrointestinal system:
L-Glutamine is an amino acid that can help repair the lining of the intestines while also boosting your immune system. L-Glutamine can also promote good bacteria growth and is a very powerful antioxidant.
It is important to ensure we take the correct amounts while also monitoring our body’s response to the supplement.

Optimum Nutrition Glutamine Powder
Muscle is actually broken down during your workout. After training, your body uses protein to repair the muscle fibres. Glutamine is one of the most important building blocks in forming the proteins that support muscle repair. Glutamine comprises more than 60% of the free amino acid pool in skeletal muscle and greater than 20% of total circulating amino acids.
Probiotics are one of the most commonly used supplements for gut health due to the fact that they contain living microorganisms that thrive within the gut. This itself can provide a number of benefits, including:
- Can help to maintain optimal levels of healthy bacteria in the gut
- Can produce healthy substances within the gut
- Can improve our immune response which can help protect against illnesses
