Your Gut Can Help Boost Your Immune Response

Did you know that your gut can play a crucial role in your immune health? In order to maintain a healthy immune response, you have to make sure your gut is healthy. Microorganisms in the gut communicate with your body’s immune system and therefore play a role in regulating your metabolic function. Flora in the gut can regulate the homeostasis of the immune system, and may also be preventative against autoimmune disorders.1

The gut is responsible for much more than just the digestion of food. Like your lungs, heart, and other important areas, it is crucial to make sure your gut is healthy, balanced, and ready to properly function in your body.

Gut health plays a role in regulating the immune system in the following areas2:

  • Autoimmunity
  • Susceptibility to infectious diseases
  • Chronic inflammation

Recently, it’s become imperative that we all take the necessary steps to ensure our immune systems are regulated, healthy, and communicating properly with the rest of the body. One way to ensure you gut flora and consequently your immune system are healthy is through ensuring you are giving your gut flora the proper vitamins and nutrients it needs to function.

Avoiding unhealthy foods and sugar, reducing stress, and exercise are all great ways to support gut microbiota. Additionally, probiotics and supplements can help. However, only a number of supplements are recognized as a way to improve gut health. At Happy Hormone Cottage, we can help you develop a personalized treatment plan that is geared towards improving gut health, so you can give your immune system a boost.
