The gut is one of the most active parts of our body, starting at the mouth and ending at the anus. Our digestive system and gut is important in helping us absorb essential vitamins and minerals so it is essential to keep it healthy.
The gut is home to bacteria, viruses, parasites and yeasts – this community is referred to as our gut microbiome. Trillions of microorganisms and their genetic material live in your intestinal tract play an important role in keeping us healthy.
Your gut supports your metabolism, digestion, hormonal health, mood and immunity (70% of our immune system is located in the gut).
