“All disease begins in the gut.” – Hippocrates
The gastrointestinal (GI) tract is one of the most important systems in the human body, impacting numerous critical physiological elements that are vital to overall health and well-being. This includes the transportation and absorption of nutrients, the elimination of waste, the generation of energy, the regulation and production of key hormones, and other critical activities.
The GI tract includes the enteric nervous system, which is sometimes called “the second brain” due to its immense population of important neurons and neurotransmitters, which is important to mental health, mood and overall neurological function.
