70 Percent of the Immune System is housed in the gut.


The gut is responsible for putting our body in working order.

.

🧪absorption of nutrients

🧪breaking down of food

🧪hormonal balance & production

🧪energy production

🧪mental health

... more.

.

It houses around 500 species and three pounds of bacteria.

.

Particularly, gut commensal bacteria is essential for boosting a healthy immune system.

.

Your immune system is made up of 4 teams:

⭐️organs

⭐️lymphatic system

⭐️antigens & antibodies

⭐️gut microbiome

.

It’s biggest role is protecting us from disease and responding to any foreign and infectious microbes.

.

The gut microbiota(GM) and immune system (IS) have a mutual relationship to help regulate and support one another.

.

This relationship between both GM & IS is established as early as birth.

.

In other words, both are codependent of one another.

.

To keep a good balance between both it is important to focus on feeding our gut with foods that will help bacteria thrive.

.

Therefore, it is no surprise that nutrition influences many aspects of the gut-immune system crosstalk. So, next time you go shopping.

.

Add these foods to your grocery list:

🌿Peas

🌿Sauerkraut

🌿Yogurt

🌿Kimchi

🌿Almonds

🌿Ginger

🌿Brussel sprouts

🌿Grapefruits
