Wellness: 3 gut-healing juices you should be starting your day with
Expert are pretty much in agreement now that when it comes to our health – both mental and physical – it pretty much all begins in the gut.
In fact, the human gut contains 10 times more bacteria than all the human cells in the entire body. Wow. So, you know, it's no wonder, really, that the gut holds the key to our overall health. This bacteria promotes normal gastrointestinal function, protects us from infection, regulates metabolism, and comprises more than 75 percent of our immune system.
In other words; eating (and drinking) a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables feeds good gut bacteria and helps them—and us—thrive.
