What is "Gut Health"? What does a healthy gut mean to you? Is it the lack of gas, bloating and discomfort in your belly? What about brain fog, skin issues, or headaches? Research is showing over 170 diseases are connected to our gut, and almost 90% of ALL disease can be tracked back to an unhealthy gut! On the flip side, a healthy gut seems to also be at the foundation of vibrancy and optimal health.
On a basic level, the gut is where we take in and process all aspects of food...everything from the enzymes that appear the moment we smell food cooking, to proper digestion and assimilation of the nutrients from the food we eat. The gut is the place where we break that food down into information our body can utilize, such as fats, proteins, carbs, and sugars.
But, it plays a much larger role than digestion........ there's so much more to come!
