Could this simple vitamin be the missing link in hard to treat depression?

Why Does Gut Health Matter?

Can your digestive system or gut, as it is often referred to, be a reflection of your overall health?  It most certainly can be and likely is.  Good health starts with stress management and a healthy digestive system.  Eating the wrong foods devoid of good nutrition will play havoc with your health.  It is just a matter of when.  Much of our food today has been genetically modified, laced in pesticides, and then is further altered into packaged foods full of preservatives and chemicals.  Sadly, when you look at many food labels today there are many things on the ingredient list that you can’t pronounce and belong in a chemistry… Read More
