What does gut mean?

When the term gut is used, it is important to look at the context to decide what it might be referring to. Most accurately, it refers to the entire digestive or gastrointestinal tract. When you hear ‘gut health’, it should be referring to the function and balance of bacteria across the entire gastrointestinal or digestive tract.

We’ve tried to help you understand what can be a very complex subject.
