It's time to hit RESET!? You can’t be much healthier than your gut is. It’s only been recently discovered just how important gut health is to overall health. As more research is discovered about the Gut-Brain Connection we are able to learn how to correct this issue. The gut-brain axis is a term for the communication network that connects your gut and brain. These two organs are thought to be connected both physically and biochemically in a number of different ways. Your gut-brain axis is also connected through the immune system.


As we discussed last week your body - roughly 37.2 trillion cells and you have about 10 times as many bacteria in your body. You have more bacteria in your body than you do human cells. These bacteria are predominately in your digestive tract.


The health and composition of these bacteria are pivotal to your overall health. These bacteria are necessary to digest and absorb nutrients. They also synthesize vitamins and provide some immunity from the flu virus and other unwanted invaders.
