It seems that everyone is talking about the gut lately. Leaky gut, pre-biotics, probiotics, wheat, celiac, gluten, bacteria, gut flora, and many more gut-related terms are popping everywhere. What do all these mean? How do they relate to your health?
Before we get into all these topics, the first thing I want to talk about in the first episode of Restore your Health show is:
Why is the Gut Important?
In the video, I talk about the 4 major roles the gut plays in our health:
- It helps you absorb and digest nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants
- It hosts the microbiota, or healthy microbes, which has many roles in health
- It prevents pathogens, toxins, chemicals, and undigested foods from entering the body and messing up the immune system
- It talks to your brain and helps you feel happy and positive
Watch the video for the full details!
Make sure you watch Episode 2 of Restore your Health Show next Wednesday at 1:30 pm EST! I’m going to talk about leaky gut, what it means, and how do you know that you have it. Join me on Facebook (click HERE) for the live streaming.
