ANTI-INFLAMMATORY Inflammation is your body's normal response to stress: it "turns on" temporarily to promote healing and then "turns off" when the emergency is resolved. However, chronic inflammation is when the emergency response never "turns off", creating further stress in the body.

Digestive regularity is a critical part of your body's detoxification process. If you are not going daily, then your waste will sit there + be partially resorbed (rather than excreted).

The vagus nerve connects the brain with other major organs that function involuntarily (aka autonomically): the heart, lungs, digestive organs, liver, thyroid, adrenals, and kidneys. It is responsible for communicating parasympathetic messages that tell the body it is safe to calm down, receive, rest, and digest. When the vagus nerve is stimulated, heart rate and blood pressure decrease, breathing slows, and the digestive system is activated. Communication goes the other way when other…

Short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) are produced when gut microbes ferment certain indigestible fibers. SCFAs benefit the body by improving cholesterol + triglyceride levels, insulin sensitivity, immune function, mitochondrial health, and systematic inflammation. Butyrate is the SCFA that remains concentrated in the gut and serves as the primary fuel for colon cells. It also promotes gut health by improving nutrient + water absorption, decreasing colon pH, increasing blood flood to the…
