The holidays don't just bring great music, cold weather, and time with loved ones - they also bring delicious meals and treats! It's unavoidable. When we think about the holidays we usually think of weight gain, but it's important to consider how the sugary treats affect your gut health as well.
When we consume a lot of sugar, we increase the number of BAD bacteria in our gut. Why does that matter? When we have too much bad bacteria in our gut, the GOOD bacteria can't flourish like it should. It's not the most glamorous topic, but the large intestine is one of the most diverse and metabolically active organs in our bodies. If you want to improve your digestion and absorption of food, your immune system, manage your appetite, and more - you've got to improve your gut health.
