…we need to talk about immunity.
Did you know an estimated 80% of your immunity resides in your gut?
Recurring infections, frequent use of antibiotics, diarrhea, constipation, food and skin allergies, or struggles with mental wellness are strong evidence that your gut could use some help. A healthy digestive tract houses trillions of beneficial microorganisms that work to keep harmful bacteria in check. Some even have the ability to send neurotransmitters throughout the body, activating immunity, hormones, and the nervous system. Furthermore, elimination is a vital function of the body. Plainly speaking, NOBODY feels good when things get out of whack in the digestive tract.
So, what can we do about it?
Nutrition is KEY. Daily bone broth is a fantastic start to revitalizing your gut. It’s inexpensive, easy, and accessible. Here’s a fantastic recipe. I challenge you to make it a part of your weekly meal planning.
Fermented foods such as sauerkrauts, pickles and relishes, kombucha, and yogurts also contain beneficial microbes. Be intentional about including some in your daily nutrition. Use caution with dairy-based yogurts, though, as dairy produces mucous throughout the body.
Probiotics replenish the gut with healthy flora so it can function as it is designed. Not all probiotics are of the same quality though. Young Living’s Life 9 is a specially formulated probiotic that is simple and effective. Daily use is suggested for promoting gut wellness. Life 9 capsules open easily and can be added to smoothies or mixed into food for little ones. Get your Life 9.
