Your Second Brain

Some experts refer to the digestive tract as your second brain.We’ve all experienced butterflies when nervous, or when your stomach is tied up in knots when anxious. It turns out these are real experiences as the stomach is lined with nerve endings which communicate with the brain. What’s important to know is that this is two-way communication. When your digestive health is out of balance, it can negatively affect your mood and your entire well-being.

Trillions of Bacteria

Your stomach, large intestine, and small intestine, together your digestive system, is home to some 100 trillion bacteria. (That’s trillion with a T). These bacteria are responsible for digesting our food, regulating our hormones, eliminating toxins, and producing vital nutrients. The beneficial bacteria in our gut represent some 80% of our immune cells, which protect us against colds, pathogens, viruses, and other “bugs.”

The digestive system plays an essential role in the healthy function of your immune system. If you want to stay healthy, taking care of your gut health to power up your natural defenses is paramount.When your immune system is compromised, you are at an increased risk for autoimmune diseases, colds, cases of flu, allergies, and a myriad of other conditions.
