All disease begins in the gut. – Hippocrates
Research over the past twenty years has revealed that gut health is critical to overall health and can contribute to a wide range of diseases including diabetes, acne and other inflammatory skin conditions, obesity, rheumatoid arthritis, autism spectrum disorder, depression and chronic fatigue syndrome.
There are two variables that determine out gut health:
- The intestinal microbiota or ‘gut flora’.
- The gut barrier.
