Your digestive tract is probably the most underappreciated system of your body, often ignored until its screams of discontent become loud enough to grab your attention.

By the time your gut reaches this degree of disgruntlement, the problems have usually been developing for months - or years - and are challenging to resolve.

Instead of waiting for obvious signs of a problem, why not perform some regular "gut maintenance" that will lessen your chances of developing a problem in the first place?

Your gut is much more than a food processing tube - it houses about 85 percent of your immune system. This is in large part due to the 100 trillion bacteria that live there, both good and bad that can stimulate secretory IgA to nourish your immune response.
