According to WHO, more than 2 billion people suffer from micronutrient deficiency worldwide. The interactions between the gut microbiota and host immunity are complex and dynamic. The imbalance in the gut microbiome due to lifestyle changes, usage of antibiotics and diet alters the immune system. Strengthening the gut is the key to boosting the immune system.
70% of the immune system is found in the gut which is known as gut-associated lymphoid tissue. Probiotics are good bacteria that support the overall immune system by preventing the colonization of pathogens. By enhancing the body’s naturalability to defend itself against pathogens, we acquire resistance to not only cold and flu but also to other infectious diseases that come on our way.
