Gut health in America, like in many other parts of the world, is a topic of increasing interest and concern. The gut, or gastrointestinal (GI) system, plays a crucial role in overall health, affecting digestion, nutrient absorption, immune function, and even mental well-being.

The American diet has evolved over the years and is characterized by a high intake of processed foods, sugary beverages, and low-fiber options. This diet can negatively impact gut health by reducing the diversity of gut microbiota, promoting inflammation, and increasing the risk of conditions like obesity and type 2 diabetes.

Integrative Nutrition Health Coach Sonia Magruder joined Gayle Guyardo the host of the global health and wellness show Bloom to share her opinion about a major culprit interfering with our gut health and what we can do to get it in check.
