Gut Health!

Let’s chat about GUT HEALTH.  Our gut is also known as our 2nd brain.  Inflammation, skin issues, pain, depression, mood can stem from our gut.  It is thought that 70-90% of the immune system is actually based in the gut.

The immune system of the human body is made up of entire organs, lymphatic system, individual cells and proteins. The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that help rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. The inner and outer surfaces of the body are the first barriers against pathogens (germs). These surfaces include the skin and all mucous membranes.  A big reason for hand washing! 

Our bodies are home to over 100 trillion microorganisms, and they have the highest density and diversity within the gastrointestinal tract, making up our gut microbiome. The gut microbiome is vital for survival and has been linked to digestion, brain and heart health, weight control, and reduced blood sugar.
