Healthy Bacteria and Digestion

Healthy Bacteria and digestion are deeply connected to ensure a healthy body and mind. Healthy bacteria and digestion work synergistically together. Bacteria are the staff of life. Bacteria does not cause disease. Processed foods cause disease. Health begins in the gut, mainly the large intestine, where 70% of the bacteria in your body, resides. Bacteria are part of your immune system and they help to dissolve toxins. Bacteria also aid in assimilating nutrients, producing certain nutrients and forming a healthy bowel movement. Healthy digestion is directly related to healthy bacteria. Nutrition aids in keeping bacteria in the correct balance. Healthy bacteria and digestion are so very important to ensure an overall healthy life.
