Wellness: The gut-healing smoothie I now start every morning with
Gut health is a bit of a buzzword of late.
And for good reason.
In fact, so important is your gut and the unique composition of bacteria in there for your overall health and wellness, that scientists are now calling it "our second brain." And recent studies have revealed that this ‘second brain’ in our bellies goes far beyond just processing the food we eat.
