Your gut houses about 60% of your immune system, makes melatonin & serotonin, as well as being a
critical part of the digestive process. If your gut is not healthy, you are not healthy. Our gut is also home to about 3-5 pounds of bacteria, some healthy and some not so healthy. The balance of good and bad bacteria in our gut will affect our metabolism, psychological well being, and
immunity. I mentioned earlier several external factors that can compromise and damage our gut.
Visceral fat (the deadly kind that builds up around our organs) is one of the direct effects of increased gut permeability. Much like your hormones your gut health can be restored over time with the proper changes to nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle.
