Going with your gut ... health
National Nutrition Month is drawing to a close, but in our opinion-- every day is nutrition day. We believe you are indeed what you eat, and nowhere is that more apparent than in your gut.
This recent study may be focused on animals, but, "The implications are considerable. “We know that the gut microbiome has really important effects on human health,” said Rachel Carmody. the study's author. Indeed, this internal environment has been linked to “a range of human diseases,” she said, including metabolic diseases like atherosclerosis and Type 2 diabetes, cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, and autoimmune disorders."
We love the fact that it gives us so much influence on our health, "as this means we can manipulate it more easily to improve human health,” Carmody said.
If you're reading this, there's a good chance you have taken a proactive course in forging your health and wellness path. Maybe you're celebrating National Nutrition Month with a green smoothie, a renewed commitment to clean eating, or savoring a square of dark chocolate.
Here's another idea-- give yourself a boost with a nutritional IV. And don't forget-- our Meyers Cocktail Special runs through the end of this month!
