WHY A HAPPY GUT MATTERS.
Did you know that 80-90% of your immune system resides in your gut? Our gut flora is the game changer in managing our immunity, and a lot of it has to do with the quality and diversity of the bacteria in our gut.
Do you think about the bacteria in your gut very often? It sounds like a silly question, but if you haven’t thought about it before, I encourage you to start thinking about it now!
Gut health is being linked to all types of diseases—cancer, IBS, autoimmune diseases, and more. When our immune systems are out of whack, it can even impact our emotions. So having a happy gut is vital to ongoing health!
