Your Immune System Relies On Your Gut Health

Updated: Mar 28

Your gut is house to trillions of bacteria, both good and bad. When your gut microbiome has a healthy balance where the good bacteria outnumber the bad bacteria, it contributes to your overall health and wellbeing. About 70% of your immune system resides in your gut. The good bacteria in your gut helps to shape and train your immune system and provide it with nutrients and compounds that heal and support your gut. When your gut microbiome falls out of balance and into a state of dysbiosis where the bad bacteria outnumber the good bacteria, your gut microbiome has a negative impact on your immune system. The imbalance can lead your immune system to overreact, creating inflammation and your immune system can begin to attack your own healthy cells. It can also cause an under-reaction of your immune system, which will leave you extra susceptible to any infection going around. Here are 4 things that can disrupt your gut health and weaken your immune system

·        Processed food

·        Sedentary Lifestyle

·        Stress and Anxiety

·        Poor Sleep
