Nearly all of the cells in our body are continually being replaced and renewed. Whether skin cells, immune cells or blood cells, this turnover requires energy and a constant supply of nutrients. This means we are constantly breaking down our tissue and rebuilding it on a very regular basis.
According to most scientists, the gut lining replaces itself completely every 4-7 days. These cells are vital in controlling which substances can cross across the gut wall and into the blood stream. Having a strong barrier is vital! A strong barrier can have a dramatic effect on how we feel and in the way our body responds to inflammation, skin problems and even mood.
Our skin starts to repair and glow when we eat nutrient rich food and shun the processed foods that we see in every supermarkets, fast food outlets and service stations!
