    Gut instinct

    No one likes talking about their poo unless you they are a 5 year old boy really, do they. But you may need to give it more thought than you think. Is your gut, as in your digestive tract, working the way it should? I don’t just mean are you regular at going, I mean is it doing the job it was intended for?
