Feed Your Immune System!!!
Did you know the biggest part of your Immune System lies in your gut?! Most of us have heard of probiotics, prebiotics, or “good bacteria” and how they can be beneficial for your digestive system…But did you know that same “good bacteria” is also the KEY PLAYER for your immune system in its every-day battle to prevent illness?!
Hippocrates (460-370BC) Stated: “All Diseases Begin in the Gut.”
How does all of this actually work?:
Your gut and intestines are populated with a world of micro-organisms—predominately bacteria—commonly referred to as your “gut flora” or your “microbiome.”
“The microbiota provides critical signals that promote maturation of immune cells and tissues, leading to protection from infections by pathogens. Gut bacteria also appear to contribute to non-infectious immune disorders such as inflammatory bowel disease and autoimmunity.”2
“Both microbiota and host immune system communicate with each other to mutually maintain homeostasis in what could be called a ‘love–hate relationship.’” 1
The “good bacteria” in the gut flora play a huge part in activating the “gate-keeping” properties of your immune system and preventing potentially harmful substances from entering your blood stream and causing infection and diseases.
There are several ways by which a healthy gut results in a stronger immune system:
How to Create a Healthier Gut:
*Extra Tip-For those who are especially committed to re-vamping their gut health, cutting down on foods like gluten, dairy, sugar, and soy will amplify the recovery and healing of your gut and provide extra benefits such as weight loss, increased energy, decreased inflammation, improved memory, and less “brain-fog.”
And always Get Adjusted!
