Elderly

Aging puts the body at higher risk of gut health problems. This is due to a variety of factors including a weakened immune system, nutrition status, and the increased use of medications due to other health problems.

Our gut microbiome consists of a carefully balanced system full of beneficial and, at times, harmful microbes. An unbalanced gut microbiome at best means stomach upsets. At worst, it can lead to life-threatening illnesses.

A poor immune system gives less protection against harmful microbes, and combined with increased medication often disturbs the microbiome, leaving room for them to grow.
