How Gut Health Impacts Immunity and therefore your Wellness

We all do our best to feel good, right? We all want to get on board with the superfood boom, do yoga and eat our greens. We get you, we love to create habits that can positively impact our health and if you are just like us, then you will love this amazing secret we are about to drop. Drum roll please...


Feeling good has a lot to do with your immune system and hence, with your gut health. Yep!



Let us explain exactly how gut health impacts our immunity and how Waku can help you feel your best everyday...


Our Immune System 


Our immune system is a complex network of cells and proteins that defends the body against infection. It is designed to attack anything that could potentially harm our wholesome bodies, without it our bodies can be attacked by bacteria, viruses, parasites, and more. We are able to survive because of our lovable immune system – how amazing is that, right? So, now that you understand why it is so important for you to take good care of it, let us tell you how you can do it.



We have good news for you...


So, according to Duly Health And Care, near­ly 70% of our immune sys­tem is housed in our gut; therefore, being mind­ful of the food and bev­er­ages we consume can really help sup­port our immune system. Tak­ing the right measures to ensure your diges­tive sys­tem is working correctly is up to you and it can be as easy as drinking one bottle of Waku now and then. 


Let us explain this a bit more. When food is bro­ken down dur­ing diges­tion, our gut works to absorb nutri­ents that are used to elim­i­nate waste from our body. When there is an imbal­ance in our lovable gut, “bad” bac­te­ria can overtake the situation and can con­fuse our immune sys­tem caus­ing it to start attack­ing our own healthy cells. Yes, you read that correctly. If our immune sys­tem is occupied react­ing to healthy cells, well, guess what? We'll get sick.


Don't worry, we (gut) you covered 


Now that you understand that the foods and bev­er­ages we con­sume affect our immune system, you can be more careful with what you eat. You can give your belly the time of its life by adding fiber-rich foods such as fruits, grains, nuts and veg­eta­bles and a bottle of Waku, of course.



Also, avoid processed food and addi­tives such as artificial sweeteners; they are no good for you, that's why we only work with all-natural ingredients and never with concentrated or artificial stuff. So, if you want to be healthy, have a strong immune system, avoid any cold or even COVID-19, then have a bottle of Waku occasionally, our powerful blend of anti-inflammatory botanicals will soothe your gut. 


Now repeat after us: a healthy gut equals a strong immune system! A healthy gut equals a strong immune system!


And remember, we got you covered.
