The Gut & Nutrients
The gut regulates nutrient balance. Nutrients affect gut health.
Both impact the thyroid.
- Nutrients are best absorbed by a healthy gut.
- An unhealthy gut is a home to pathogens.
- Pathogens cause inflammation, toxicity, and nutrient deficiencies.
- Toxins are only excreted by a healthy gut.
- High toxicity wastes nutrients.
In a high-toxicity, low-nutrient situation, pushing the metabolism faster (via hormones) might be a losing prospect.
