This highly sophisticated system is where 80% of your immune system resides. 95% of your body’s serotonin (the “feel-good” hormone), is found not in the brain but in your gut.
Your microbiome contains 100 trillion bacteria, makes up 80% of your immune system and contains 10x more bacterial cells than human cells.
An estimated 40 million people in the United States experience some sort of anxiety-related disorder and as many as 30 million suffer from depression. Many of these brain and hormone problems have their roots in underlying gut health problems.
The gut-brain axis is linked to depression, anxiety, autism, fatigue, brain fog & and other brain problems. The gut-immune axis is linked to triggering autoimmune and other inflammatory conditions.
