been quoted for saying “All disease begins in the gut”. How true this statement is
as we know throughout the digestive journey any malfunction can lead to
digestive disorders like constipation, food intolerance, nutritional deficiencies, or
lack of energy. The gut is the center to all functions in the human body. Besides
the breakdown of food, 70 % of immune system originates in the gut, 90 % of
serotonin (a brain neurotransmitter) is produced within the GI tract from gut
bacteria, and the microbiome is community of microorganisms that reside in the
small and large intestines which protects every bodily system. Keeping your
digestive tract healthy through proper eating and supplementation may help to
give you overall good health.
