Strong gut flora equals a stronger immune system

Did you know that most of our immune system is located in the gut? Keep reading to learn how to create a strong and resilient immune system.

70 per cent of your immune system is in your gut

One of the most important things to consider when it comes to strengthening your immune system is the gut flora – as much as 70-90 per cent of the body’s immune cells are located in your gut!

Our intestines are home to both good and bad bacteria that together make up our gut flora. But if we want to maintain the right balance, it is important that the majority of these bacteria are the good types of bacteria. Among other things, the good bacteria help strengthen the intestinal mucosal barrier, which ensures that toxic substances and harmful organisms do not leak into the body; the good bacteria also help the immune system carry out important functions, for example, protein synthesis and the production of antibodies.

How to strengthen your gut flora and immune system

The immune system consists of a large network of cells, organs and tissue. In order to strengthen the immune system, it is therefore important to maintain good overall health and keep your body in balance. But there are also a number of things we can do to give our immune systems an extra boost, such as nourishing our gut flora and making sure we are getting enough of a few important vitamins and minerals. Here are our top five tips for a stronger immune system:

The starting point of good health is in the gut

Synbiotic15 is the best Swedish supplement to support and boost your gut health. One daily dose contains:

 15 billion lactic acid bacteria
4 patented bacterial strains
4 grams of gluten-free dietary fibres


1. Strengthen your gut flora with the right fibre and lactic acid bacteria

Take care of your gut bacteria by eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables that contain prebiotic fibre – food for the good bacteria in the gut. In addition to a good diet, you can take our Synbiotic supplement, which contains both probiotics (good bacteria) and prebiotics (fibre that the good bacteria feed on). Synbiotic15 is a patented dietary supplement based on 15 years of clinical research led by Stig Bengmark.

2. Reduce your stress levels

Long-term stress can weaken your immune system and make you more susceptible to viruses and infections. Stress can also negatively impact the gut flora, which in turn affects the immune system.

3. Eat a varied diet

In order for our immune system to do its job, we need to make sure we get all the essential vitamins, minerals and other nutrients our bodies need. Some simple guidelines for ensuring this happens are to eat 500-800 grams of fruits and vegetables (preferably more!) every day and to vary the colours of the food we eat – different colours signify different nutrient content. Check out the anti-inflammatory diet for inspiration and a good start.

4. Get plenty of sleep

Sleep affects both the immune system and the balance of our gut flora; adequate sleep is therefore crucial to keep our bodies healthy and strong. Aim for 7-9 hours of sleep per night and try to keep your bedtime as regular as possible.

5. Vitamin C, vitamin D and zinc

Vitamin D, vitamin C and zinc all contribute to the normal function of the immune system, so we should keep an extra eye on our intake of these nutrients. Vitamin C is found, for example, in citrus fruits, while vitamin D is mainly found in animal sources of food. Good sources of zinc include shellfish, nuts, seeds and legumes.

A supplement for your gut health

Want more energy and less bloating? It might be time to take better care of your gut. To strengthen or restore the balance in your gut flora, it's important you feed your gut with a daily dose of pre- and probiotics. A healthy diet with lots of fruits and vegetables is usually sufficient. If you want an extra boost or make sure you get a daily dose of good bacteria, you can complement your diet with a supplement.
