A Boost for Your Immune System This Winter

| Lifestyle TipsPreventative Care

Did you know that the Immune System begins in the gut?

With 70-80% of immune cells being present in the gut, there is an intricate interplay between the intestinal microbiome, the intestinal epithelial layer, and the local mucosal immune system. This is why having a healthy Gastro-Intestinal (GI) System can impact your overall health. Nutrition is vital so watch your sugar intake and consider increasing your fiber along with fermented foods. Also, probiotics have been shown to impact the Immune System by supporting balance between good bacteria and decreasing bad bacteria that can cause infection.
