"All disease starts in the gut." -Hippocrates
As you may have noticed, digestive health plays a big part in overall health. The gut is also like our "second skin", because it protects you from unhealthy outside toxins. In fact, did you know that the digestive system is considered an exterior organ of our body? It's not considered interior until the nutrients are absorbed into our bloodstream. I think that's pretty cool!
Also, 90% of our neurotransmitters (brain chemicals that regulate mood) such as serotonin are made in our gut. Mood swings, depression, anxiety, and other mental disorders can occur as result of poor gut health. There's a reason why we have a "gut feeling"!
