The science behind a healthy gut

When we talk about your ‘gut’, we are referring to your intestines. The long tube that helps your digest food and that takes waste from your stomach all the way out of your body.

Although we often say we have ‘stomach’ pain, this pain is rarely actually in your stomach, and is instead in your intestines.

Your gut is central to your whole body and is connected, in some way or another, to every other organ. It has large, direct connections to other organs involved in digestion (liver, kidneys, pancreas etc) as well as more subtle connections with your heart, lungs, skin, bones and brain.

What is your gut microbiome?

Your gut microbiome is a hugely complex ecosystem. It’s much like a coral reef or rainforest. Made up of trillions of bacteria, viruses, fungi and other microbes, over 1000 different species interact in the intestine, competing for food and space.

Like a coral reef, the greater diversity of life, the healthier the ecosystem. The same is generally true of the gut.

The benefits of a healthy gut

Historically, scientists believed that the only function of the gut was to digest your food, by absorbing nutrients and excreting waste.

However, exciting science in the last 10 years has proven that your gut (and microbiome) does so much more for your body.

Weight control

Keeping in shape is something that many of us find difficult, but maintaining a healthy gut could help to change that for good.

What does Sons Probiotic do?

LP299v is highly resistant to the digestive processes, meaning it arrives in your gut intact. Once it gets there, it binds effectively with your gut cells through a connection called the mannose receptor.

Binding to gut cells in this way leads to more production of mucus, which strengthens the gut wall. This may also prevent other harmful bacteria from binding to your gut.

How to use our products

Sons live probiotic is designed to arrive at the gut intact. Here it binds closely to the cells lining your gut using a connection called the mannose receptor.

Binding to gut cells in this way leads to more production of mucus in the gut which strengthens the gut wall. This binding may also prevent other harmful bacteria from binding to your gut.
