Perhaps this explains why topics like healthy eating are all the more amplified when viruses and flu seasons are upon us.
In simple speak, our digestive systems, AKA guts, are the complex organs that work together to both absorb key nutrients from foods and rid our bodies of metabolic waste. Both aspects have to function optimally for total body wellness. If we're to introduce poor foods in our diets, we cannot expect a great return in terms of energy and health. If we're chronically stressed or anxious, we may not be absorbing maximum benefits from the foods we eat, even if they're high quality. And, if our digestive systems are backed up or malfunctioning, there are arguably more toxins and metabolic waste products lingering in our bodies.
So, gut health is of paramount importance. And how you support the entire bacterial world inside your gut can make a tremendous impact on the way you navigate everyday life.
