Did you know 80% of your immune system is located in your gut and 95% of your serotonin (happy hormone) is manufactured in your intestines?
What’s more, if your digestive system is out of whack, your entire body will suffer. That makes the gut pretty important. Because it’s so important, it’s critical to keep it in the best shape possible. The health of your gut depends on the amount of good bacteria, known as probiotics, inside of it. Probiotics are found naturally in your gut; however, the amount of good bacteria versus bad bacteria in your gut can often get out of balance. Stress, pollution, a diet high in sugar or eating too many processed foods will wreak havoc on your body’s good flora. Even taking an antibiotic one time can cause an imbalance.
