The gut is sometimes referred to as the “second brain”, and this is for good reason: it is responsible for chemical messengers, the creation of our feel-good neurotransmitters and the overall health of our central nervous system. This bidirectional communication is known as the gut-brain-axis; through research we know that an imbalance in bacteria, lingering infection or viruses can be connected to a low mood or increased anxiousness.

The human immune system and microbiome are interconnected, this is mostly because 70-80% of the immune system resides in the digestive tract. They work together by creating defense against infections or pathogens outside of the body as well as cultivating new healthy bacteria to remain strong. An unhealthy gut microbiome can lead to an unhealthy and weak immune system and increase the development of autoimmunity.
