It’s Winter and coronavirus is still lurking around, so we really need to be making sure we are looking after our immune system and overall health the best we can. The health of our digestive tract and the levels of our good gut bacteria play a huge role in our overall health and immune function.
Our digestive tract, mainly our colon, contains trillions of friendly and beneficial gut bacteria, known as good gut bacteria. These good gut bacteria positively affect our health in many different ways. However, the balance of these beneficial gut bacteria can be easily disrupted by some dietary and lifestyle factors, which results in negative health effects, poor mood and decreased immune function.
