Our digestive system is amazing. Our gut is our second brain. It keeps us healthy with over 70% of our immunity residing in our gut. Our gut affects everything from cognitive function to our mood, it signals for the release of serotonin more than our brain does.
A busy lifestyle, illness, travel, and stress can decrease good gut bacteria and invite unfriendly bacteria and yeasts into our bodies, resulting in irritable bowels, digestion issues, allergies, inflammation, anxiety, belly pain, and bloat.
From the day you were born, your digestive tract has been exposed to a steady stream of bacteria – some helpful, some unhealthy.
Over time, many factors – a busy lifestyle, illness, travel, a poor diet, or stress can upset your gut and disrupt your guts bacteria balance -inviting unfriendly bacteria and yeasts into our bodies, leading to irritable bowels, digestion issues, allergies, inflammation, anxiety, belly pain, wind, and bloating.
When your gut is in balance it supports your brain, your immune system, and it has been linked to healing many conditions from nasal congestion to acne.
