A survey found that gut health is the key to a healthy body and mind.
Over 70 million Americans have digestive diseases, such as Crohn’s disease, Celiac disease, and irritable bowel syndrome. Gut issues are a leading cause of absenteeism and GI claims account for $136 billion annually. Providing digestive support resources can create a more productive workplace, reduce company costs, and give employees opportunities to take control of their health.
Gut health plays an important role in overall physical, mental, and emotional health. With GIThrive®, Vivante Health fills in the gaps of traditional digestive care through an all-in-one digital platform that provides access to actual clinicians, full-body support, and informational resources for member employees.
In a recent survey, Vivante Health studied the impact of GIThrive on its members. The survey found that 92% of GIThrive members reported improvements in their physical symptoms and demonstrated how Vivante Health is continually improving the positive health outcomes of our members.
The top five symptoms improved for members were bloating, constipation, gas, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Digestive issues contribute a great deal to an individual’s physical health. For example, abdominal pain is the #1 reason behind doctor’s appointments and emergency room visits. Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and gastroenteritis follow right behind. GIThrive members also experienced a positive change in their mental health. They reported a lessening of anxiety, stress, depression, and fatigue. With the help of GIThrive, 93% of members reported improvement in their overall quality of life.
A healthy gut is the key to a healthy body and mind. Supporting employees’ gut health helps reduce doctor visits and absences. The data from this survey affirmed that prioritizing gut health will result in better outcomes for everyone. GIThrive has the resources, 24/7 professional services, access to real clinicians, and more that will support employees and help them take control of their gut health.
