(Natural News) The human stomach, the saliva, and the large and small intestines are like a rain forest, teeming with more than five thousand living species of bacteria. These bacteria cells outnumber human cells 10:1. Every moment of every day, several trillion bacteria cells interact with one another and coordinate vital functions inside the body. Together, these bacterium regulate the gastrointestinal tract and create metabolites for proper digestion and hormone regulation. They help eliminate waste and protect the blood from toxins. They respond to outside threats and initiate immune responses.
(Natural News) Inflammation is a normal occurrence in your body. It is your immune system’s response to threats. However, there are cases in which the immune system impartially attacks healthy tissues and organs, thereby leading to autoimmune diseases.
About 700 million people around the world suffer from an autoimmune disease, and up to 23.5 million people in the U.S., becoming one of the top 10 leading causes of death in the country.
(Natural News) Your digestive tract is crucial to your overall well-being because it is responsible for absorbing nutrients and eliminating waste from the body. If you suffer from digestive issues like abdominal pain, bloating, constipation, or diarrhea, eating gut-friendly foods like apples and chia seeds can help relieve your painful symptoms.
