Gut Health – Inflammation

The gut (gastrointestinal tract) is home to over 100 trillion bacteria as well as yeast and some viruses. These bacteria outnumber our human cells in total number by 2 1⁄2 times (humans have roughly 35 to 37 trillion cells in their whole body). It is also where 70% of your entire immune system resides. Proper gastrointestinal tract function is vital for health. Hippocrates (the father of medicine) over 2000 years ago was quoted as saying “all disease begins in the gut.” Abnormal gut bacteria and/or yeast overgrowth is a major source of inflammation in the body. This inflammation if left untreated can lead to symptoms of fatigue, but it can also lead to a host of medical conditions that can be more serious and at times deadly.
