Vitamins Or Dietary Supplements That Can Impact Your GI Health

B Vitamins

There are 8 B vitamins, a few of which are especially important to your GI health. Just like vitamin D, the B vitamins can be found in food sources as part of a balanced diet. Foods like dairy,

  • Meat,

  • Eggs,

  • Beans,

  • Leafy greens,

  • Seafood, and

  • Whole grains

All contain B vitamins. But also, like vitamin D, most people don’t get enough B vitamins from food alone. It’s a good idea to take effective dietary supplement powders, at least of the following B vitamins, to support your gut health.

  • Vitamin B2- helps keep the lining of your digestive tract healthy, helps break down proteins, fats, and carbohydrates convert nutrients into energy.

  • Vitamin B3- helps break down fats, carbohydrates, and alcohol. Lack of B3 causes pellagra and severe vomiting and diarrhea.

  • Vitamin B6- helps process protein.

  • Biotin- helps the body produce healthy cholesterol, processes carbs, proteins, and fatty acids, and helps eliminate waste.

  • Folic Acid- linked to lower levels of colon cancer.


Your gut is filled with millions of bacteria. Don’t worry, it’s a good kind of bacteria. But sometimes, due to things like illness, poor diet, or taking antibiotics, the balance of good and bad bacteria can be disrupted. 

Probiotics are live microorganisms that keep the bacteria in your digestive system in balance. Taking a daily probiotic has several benefits and has been proven to reduce the symptoms of GI health issues like irritable bowel syndrome, lactose intolerance, inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, and diarrhea.
