Gut Health and Your Immune System




Did you know that 70% of your immune system is in your gut.



 

Have you heard this statistic?

 

It’s true.

 

Of all the immune cells in the human body, 70-80% are located in a place called the GALT, which is lymphatic tissue around the gastrointestinal tract.

 

These immune cells are trained by the gut microbiome, which means…

 

🙌 Healthy Gut Microbiome = Healthy Immune System 🙌

 

Most people never think about it, but eating in a way that supports the gut microbiome is one of the best ways to support your immune system!!

 

Want some ideas for microbiome-friendly foods?

 

🥦 Fiber-rich fruits and vegetables

🥣 Probiotic-rich yogurt, kefir, and sauerkraut

🧄 Prebiotic-rich foods like garlic, onions, and bananas

 

Not everyone does well with these foods, depending on many individual factors. Please do not take this as medical advice.

 

Reach out for specific guidance on how to support your immune & gut health in a personalized way.
