Meal Replacement and Gut HealthBuckle in, you’re about to read the word “gut” a lot...and, I know, it’s not pretty...but we can gut it out together.
Believe it or not, our “gut” is more than just a complex bundle of pipes and tubes for food to travel through in order to be turned into tomorrow mornings... “activity”. The whole of our digestive system contains a 10-100 trillion member microscopic community- a metropolis of microorganisms, bacteria, protozoa, and fungi, all interacting with each other. The interactions between these microscopic lifeforms, and the food we take in, produce the chemical reactions that allow our bodies to absorb nutrients, regulate hormones, and even support immune responses and brain function. This microbial community is called the gut microbiome.
