Why is the digestive system important?
The health of your gastrointestinal system is extremely important to our overall well-being. The digestive system is responsible for a lot more than just digestion; it is also a key factor in our immune health. The good bacteria that lives in our digestive tract can affect many of the body’s functions such as: vitamin and mineral absorbency, hormone regulation, immune response, ability to eliminate toxins, and even mental health. The gut plays such an important role in health that it is being called “the second brain” by many in the field of health and nutrition.

The nerve cells that line the inside of our gastrointestinal tract are in constant communication with our brain, monitoring our overall health, including our mental health. Research has shown that when the gut is irritated or inflamed, which usually happens when the body is trying to digest foods that are overly processed or that it is sensitive to, those cells within the gastrointestinal tract can send signals to the body’s Central Nervous System, which can then trigger mood changes. By maintaining good intestinal health we can feel better all over, keeping a good balance of healthy eating, regular exercise and natural supplements, such as StemLiver™ and StemDigest™.
