b'the Good GutM ost people only think about their gastrointestinal (GI) tract when something goes wrong. Yet a well-functioning GI tract is responsible for processing every morsel of food you eat, turning it into the fuel the body needs to perform at its best. But thats only the beginning of the story. Your gastrointestinal system is home to 70 percent of your immune system. Your gut is also connected to your brain and contains more nerve cells than your entire spinal cord. Because the GI tract is involved in so many different functions, keeping it in top form is critical. That is often easier said than done. A diet high in processed foods, less than optimal eating habits, a sedentary lifestyle, and stress can all undermine a happy digestive system. The good news is that a few simple changes to your diet and lifestyle, as well as adding in some gut-friendly probiotics, can ease gastrointestinal issues and improve the digestive process. Not only can these natural solutions spell relief, they can enhance your entire GI tract to help you be your best every day.Sherry TorkoSis a practicing pharmacist, author, and former fitness instructor.
