FOOD IS MEDICINE
Proper nutrition promotes growth and repair of tissue.
Nutrition is key when you are trying to prevent infections and boost your immune system, as 80% of the immune system is in the gut.
An anti-inflammatory diet is the key to promoting proper gut integrity. Diets that increase inflammation will not only increase gastrointestinal distress, but will also increase cardiovascular risk, autoimmunity risk, and nearly every other chronic disease mediated by inflammation.
