“All diseases begins in the gut” -Hippocrates
The gut contains an estimated 70% to 80% of the immune system, they say. Hence, it is extremely important to keep the digestive system healthy to keep off from ailments. It’s proven that when the gut bacteria are in control, you will automatically have a balanced immunity. Beneficial bacteria in your digestive system have the capability of affecting your body’s vitamin and mineral absorbency, hormone regulation, digestion, vitamin production, immune response, and ability to eliminate toxins, not to mention your overall mental health.
Digestive issues can be the root cause for many other health issues including brain and mental health. So, if you are frequently suffering from digestive issues, you will be prone to different ailments in the body too early. Symptoms related to poor gut health can be as obvious as abdominal pain, bloating after meals, reflux, or flatulence, but also less obvious like headaches, fatigue, joint pain, and immune system weakness.
