Digestive and Gastrointestinal Health

The good bacteria in your gut need to be kept in balance. Acidophilus in the intestines need to be replenished. Probiotics can be crucial for healthy intestinal flora. Things that contribute to intestinal imbalance is stress, caffeine, sugar, coffee, vinegar, yeast and malt.

Your systems of elimination need to be kept in balance. A healthy diet one rich in fiber, raw vegetables and fruit with adequate water intake and exercise is a great start.

Cultured and fermented foods have many health benefits and nutrients to support the digestive and immune systems. Fermented and cultured foods include sauerkraut, kimchi, miso, kefir yogurt, and kombucha tea.

The gastrointestinal system is a complex network of organs and intestines and relies on enzymes and acids. Intestinal health and immunity are tied together along with capacity for the absorption of nutrients and elimination of toxins.
