Although you can't see the inside of your gut, there's a lot of bacteria in there — both good and bad. And that bacteria can have a huge impact on your overall health. There may even be a connection between your gut health and your immune system, although more research needs to be done. So it's always a good time to make sure you're paying attention to what's happening in your gut.
The National Institutes of Health states that millions of Americans have or had digestive issues stemming from an unbalanced gut, but there are some easy steps you can take to make your gut microbiome healthier — like stopping by the grocery store to pick up some fruits and vegetables.
