Heal Your Gut
“Our human body, like our planet, is inhabited by trillions of microorganisms happily co-existing in a symbiotic relationship. Humans cannot live without these tiny creatures – the largest of which live in our digestive system. An average adult carries 1.5 – 2 kgs of bacteria in their gut. All these bacteria ‘our gut flora’ are a highly organized micro-world with certain species predominating and controlling others. The number of functions they fulfill in our bodies are so vital to us, that if our gut was sterilized we would not survive.”
- Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride
Our microbiome represents a community of microorganisms, including bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and viruses that live on and inside our body. Supporting the vitality of our microbiome is the GUT MICROBIOME, which plays a crucial role in our health. It digests and METABOLIZES our food into the building blocks of what our body needs to sustain many aspects of our health. It is responsible for keeping our body in a state of balance. An imbalance of unhealthy and healthy microbes in the intestines may contribute to weight gain, high blood sugar, high cholesterol, chronic illnesses and many other health disorders.
12 THINGS YOU GUT TO KNOW
FUN FACT: Did you know your body regenerates itself and how well it regenerates depends on the food you put in your body?
When your gut is healthy and aligned with your brain, you can prevent unwanted diseases, stress, and other mental health issues. Keep your gut microbiome in the best condition through eating nutrient-dense, synbiotic food.
FUN FACT: Your brain and your gut are connected!
The gut and the brain are connected through the largest nerve in the body, called the vagus nerve, and they communicate both ways through this nerve connection. What goes on in our gut can directly influence our brain function and behavior. And it is the gut microbiome aka the trillions of microorganisms that live in our gut that directly communicate with the brain via the vagus nerve.
NUTRIENT DENSE FOOD vs. PROCESSED FOOD
Nutrient-dense food keeps your gut flora in balance allowing your body to absorb the nutrients it needs, keeping your body healthy, while processed food destroys your gut flora causing leaky gut and keeping your body in a state of disease.
