Did you know that the health of your skin is connected to the health of your gut?
You can put all the healthiest products (ahem…) on your skin & have the perfect routine, but if your gut is in poor condition you may find a limit in your skin’s ability to heal.
What really goes on in your gut.
The lining of your gut is known as the mucosal barrier. Problems in the lining can affect other areas of your body. Essentially, it’s like having skin on the inside of your body. Running from your mouth to your anus, it processes the external inputs (food, drink, non-food substances), and breaks them down into particles your body can use. Any toxins, pathogens, and non-useful particles are kept moving through until they’re eliminated.
In this post, we’re focusing on the small intestine, located between the stomach & the large intestine, and the workhorse for breaking down nutrients so they can be absorbed in your body.
