    Your digestive system has more going on inside of it than you may realize. There are literally trillions of bacteria that live mostly in the lower parts of your intestines—the colon. These bacteria establish a “city” of sorts with many different “neighborhoods” of friendly (healthy) and non–friendly (harmful) bacteria types. Your immune health depends upon the friendly bacteria out–numbering the non– friendly neighbors. Scientists view the intestinal track as the first line of defense against illness, so maintaining ample friendly bacteria ultimately keeps you well. Stress, poor sleep, sporadic eating or poor dietary choices can each disrupt the balance of friendly versus non–friendly bacteria. Take these simple steps to promote healthy bacteria in your intestines and a strong immune system.

Add flaxseed meal to your hot or cold cereal, pancakes, and waffles for a robust nutty flavor, and save the raw whole seeds for when you want to add a little crunch. Try using ground flax seed instead of eggs in baking and cooking. Simply add 1 tablespoon ground flax seed with 3 tablespoons warm water, let sit until a gel forms and use for 1 egg in recipe (pancakes, quick breads).
