Healthy immune system
More than 2000 years ago Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, said: “All disease begins in the gut”. However, it wasn’t until recent times that science finally accepted that many chronic metabolic and other diseases do, in fact, begin in the gut.
It has been accepted that our gastrointestinal tract has a direct link and interaction with the immune system and microorganisms and a dysfunction in the gut bacteria can lead to a weakened immunity system and heightened inflammation.
An unhealthy microbiota has been linked to obesity, asthma, allergies and autoimmune disorders such as celiac disease, Type 1 diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease and rheumatoid arthritis. Increasingly, chronic inflammation is also thought to be a root cause of cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes and some forms of cancer. There have also been several studies that have linked gut bacteria with mood and mental health.
This is why it is important to maintain a diet which nourishes our gut microbiomes. Increasing levels of healthy bacteria (also known as a probiotic) by consumption of fermented products packed with billions of gut-friendly bacteria can help ‘reset’ the microbial community in the gut, thereby reducing inflammation and strengthening immunity
