We’ve come a long way in our journey to better understand what constitutes a healthy lifestyle, but our journey is not complete. Understanding the importance of gut flora is a major step in the right direction.
Today, we’re finding out that 80 percent of our immune system is located in our digestive system, so if your digestive system is full of unhealthy bacteria, there’s a good chance your immune system will be suppressed as a result.
Recent studies corroborate what some food scientists have been saying for a long time that gut bacteria influence a person mentally, emotionally, and physically. For example, sugar is a preferred food source for fungi that produce yeast infections and sinusitis, whereas healthy probiotic-rich foods like fermented vegetables boost health promoting bacteria.
This eBook will cover how to build a strong and healthy microbiome, from which foods you should include in your diet, to understanding how good bacteria influences our general health.
