The immune system is part of a persons defense system, it fights off what it perceives to be invasive or harmful to the health of your body. If the digestive system has what is known as “leaky gut” then particles of food leak out through the walls of the small intestine into the blood. This is counter productive for the digestive system… the small intestine is supposed to absorb up to 90% of your nutrients… not let them escape into your blood.
Also 80% of the immune system lives in the gut… so if you have leaky gut, you will have a compromised immune system. A leaky gut is the root cause of chronic health issues and can be responsible for allergies, autoimmune disease, fibromyalgia, lupus, crohns, irritable bowel, thyroid, diabetes etc. Therefore… it is a very good idea to heal and seal your gut… to support a healthy and strong immune system and excellent health.
Did you know, 95% of your serotonin is made in your gut? It is no wonder that gut health and depression are directly related!
The immune system and gut have trillions of bacteria… good and bad… the ratio should be 80% good bacteria and 20% bad… in most people this ratio is reversed… so that means they most likely have a leaky gut.
