Gut health is the center of our well-being and that is slowly being acknowledged by the medical community as well. Our gut, its microbiome, and its interaction with different organs in our body are what is largely responsible for wellness or the ultimate manifestation of disease. 75-80% of our immune system resides in the gut. It also contains the second nervous system known as the enteric nervous system which is connected to the brain through the vagus nerve providing the option of bi-directionality. What does that mean? Your brain and your thoughts can affect your gut and your gut health – its microbiome and the food you eat can lead to depression, anxiety, or even Alzheimer’s. Our microbiome cells and genes outnumber our human ones and that’s why it becomes important to nurture them for our own health
