“With digestive health people are usually thinking about things like bowel function and diarrhea. However, the intestine is connected to many other organ systems through hormonal, neurological and immunological pathways. Some may be aware of the gut-brain-axis. But in fact, there are many other gut-axes. Digestive health is therefore key to general health.”
