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.
