5 Signs your Gut could be Driving your Sugar Cravings

Having trouble managing your sugar cravings? Ongoing sugar cravings could point to gut microbiome imbalance. Here are five signs that could connect your sugar cravings to your gut health.

Struggling with regularity?
Irregular bowels might be a sign your gut could be struggling to digest
and retain nutrients. This can result in your body craving sugar as a quick energy source.

Person with food or lactose intolerance


Growing list of food intolerances?
If the list of foods you can tolerate is shrinking rapidly, this could be a sign of inflammation in your gut. This could lead to the brain releasing chemicals that might trigger cravings for sugary foods to alleviate the discomfort caused by food intolerance.

Unexpected weight changes?
If your gut microbiome is out of balance, it can affect your body’s ability to absorb nutrients and regulate blood sugar. This can lead to sudden weight fluctuations and frequent sugar cravings.

Often feel under the weather?
An imbalance in the gut microbiome can increase your susceptibility to infections. Frequent sugar cravings could indicate that your body is attempting to boost its immune response.

Tired individual with numerous coffee cups

Always running on empty?
Low energy levels, fatigue and poor sleep could be a sign that there is an imbalance of gut bacteria. This can lead to a craving for sugary foods for a quick pick-me-up.
