Gut health is an important component of overall human health and has an important impact on all aspects of body function and health.
Here are some of the importance of gut health:
1) Digestive function: The intestine is the part of the digestive system that is responsible for breaking down food, absorbing nutrients, and eliminating waste. A healthy intestine digests food efficiently, ensures adequate absorption of nutrients, and maintains the normal functioning of the body.
2) Immune system: There are a large number of immune cells in the intestines, which can identify and attack invading pathogens and maintain the body’s immune function. A healthy gut maintains a balanced immune system and prevents disease.
3) Nutrient absorption: There is a rich community of microorganisms in the intestines, which work with the body to help digest food, synthesize nutrients, and produce a variety of substances that are beneficial to the body. A healthy gut maintains a good microbial balance and promotes nutrient absorption and utilization.
4) Mental health: There is a close connection between the gut and the brain, known as the “gut-brain axis.” Intestinal health is closely related to mental health. Intestinal problems such as constipation and irritable bowel syndrome may be related to psychological diseases such as anxiety and depression. Maintaining good gut health can help improve mental health.
Prevention of diseases: Intestinal problems such as inflammation, bacterial infection, etc. may lead to the occurrence of intestinal diseases, such as ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, etc. Maintaining a healthy gut can help reduce the risk of these diseases.
Therefore, by maintaining a healthy diet, adequate fluid intake, moderate exercise and reducing stress, we can promote gut health.
Here we had independently developed the Calprotectin diagnostic kits respectively in Colloidal Gold and Fluorescence Immunochromatographic Assay bases for assisting in the diagnosis and evaluating the extent of intestinal inflammation and its related diseases (inflammatory bowel disease, adenoma, Colorectal cancer)
