Our digestive system is one of the most important systems in our whole body. If our body cannot efficiently digest and absorb nutrients and remove waste products, then it’s almost impossible to achieve optimal health. Two-thirds of our immune system are located in and around the digestive system. We have more neurotransmitters in our gut than we do in our brain.
A healthy gut is critically important in order to prevent infectious, inflammatory, and allergic disease. We must also evaluate our physical, mental, emotional, genetic, and environmental factors when balancing our gut.
