Women’s Gut Health: A Deep Dive with Fody

Women face unique challenges when it comes to digestive health. From hormone fluctuations to the pressures of daily life, there are many causes – but they don’t always get linked to the effects. Today, we’re talking about women’s gut health, how to improve it, and how low-FODMAP foods and ingredients from Fody can help.

At Fody, we’ve talked a lot about IBS–what it is, why it happens, and how to deal with it. But we haven’t always talked about who IBS affects. The answer may surprise you: women are actually more likely than men to live with IBS symptoms. 

If you’re asking yourself what IBS is, you can check out this article to learn more. But to explain IBS simply, this condition is a common gastrointestinal disorder characterized by symptoms like bloating, abdominal pain, and irregular bowel movements. Living with these IBS symptoms can be a real challenge for people affected; but there’s hope! With the right approach, women can effectively manage both their gut health and stress levels, finding relief and comfort in their daily lives. Here are some steps for managing digestive health, every day.

Understanding the Connection Between Stress and IBS symptoms in women:

It's no secret that there's a strong connection between stress and women’s gut health. Research has shown that women tend to experience higher levels of stress, which can exacerbate digestive issues and IBS symptoms in women, 

So stress and gut-health are connected; but what can we do about it? Check out this article to learn more about the gut-brain connection, and to learn how you can foster a healthy environment for your good gut bacteria, and, by extension, for your mind.
