New research suggests that a woman's gut microbiome changes during perimenopause. Our gut "microbiome" is the collection of gut "bugs" that live inside the intestines. 

This new science also suggests that gut microbes directly impact menopausal symptoms and other areas of health.

Taking good care of our gut health is vital no matter what our health goals are, especially during perimenopause and menopause because our hormones are changing.

Gut Health Links Directly to Hormone Health

Our gut is one of the most prominent players in our health (not just digestion and nutrient absorption), but our gut is also where hormones get processed and excreted.

Did you know that oestrogen and testosterone help to regulate the gut in two ways? See below;

  1. Regulating the tissue environment in the gut
  2. Regulating the gut microbiome

Keeping the gut microbiome happy will help our hormonal health; it's both simple and complex!

You also have an estrobolome inside your gut microbiome. What on earth is an estrobolome?

An estrobolome is a group of specific microbes that support oestrogen metabolism. When this estrobolome is healthy and vital, the microbes help regulate oestrogen levels; that is why it is even more critical during perimenopause to keep our gut microbiome happy and balanced.

 

When our gut microbiome is unbalanced (there are more bad microbes than good microbes), this is called 'gut dysbiosis'. This dysbiosis puts a spanner in the works when it comes to hormones!

 

What Can You Do About It?

  • Feed your body healthy whole foods (preferably organic produce to avoid gut-disrupting glyphosate and agricultural chemicals)
  • Avoid/limit the bad stuff (chemicals, processed foods, deep-fried foods, bakery goods, junk food, refined sugar, drugs and alcohol) 
  • Add in a high-quality greens powder that focuses on gut health. Look for one that contains organic greens and prebiotic fibre (this feeds and nourishes the gut microbes). Ensure that it also contains broccoli sprouts (to support the lover and gut function) and probiotics. Zesti™️ Daily Gut Immune Greens include all of the above and much more! There are 29 epic ingredients to help you achieve your wellness goals. You take a teaspoon in cold water daily.
