Tips for Supporting Gut Health

I quickly became fascinated with the gut microbiome, and the important role it plays for many critical functions in the body. It is a gatekeeper that determines what is absorbed into the body and what is excreted. It is also home to about seventy to eighty percent of the body’s immune cells (yes, you read that right!), and acts as a first line of defense for pathogens trying to enter our body via the digestive tract.

Even more fascinating, these good gut bacteria assist in neurotransmitter and hormone production. Over 90% of the body’s happiness hormone serotonin is produced in the gut, as is a large portion of other neurotransmitters such as dopamine and tryptophan.

Long story short: A healthy gut is a foundation for holistic health.
