Probiotics and Your Gut

Did you know, 80 percent of your entire immune system is located in your digestive tract?

Our digestive systems are the second largest part of our neurological system, called the enteric nervous system, located in the gut. That's why it’s called our second brain!

In fact, many health issues, like thyroid imbalances, chronic fatigue, joint pain, psoriasis, and other conditions originate in the gut.

Probiotics are bacteria that line your digestive tract and support your body’s ability to absorb nutrients and fight infection.

Naturally found in the body and in some foods, probiotics are considered good bacteria because they help keep things moving.

Certain strains of probiotics support immunity, others aid digestion, and some even help burn fat and balance hormones.

Add probiotics to your balanced diet to help with digestive problems while lowering inflammation in the body.

How much do I need, you ask?

I encourage everyone to start trying to have one serving of probiotic-rich food a day.

Sources of Probiotics:

  • Fermented foods like kefir, kimchi, pickled vegetables and kombucha

  • Yogurt

  • Apple cider vinegar

  • Supplements
