There are so many things we don't know about the human body. Science is only now discovering how important gut health is to our wellness. The gut controls the enteric nervous systems or ENS which is almost like having a second brain. It includes 100 million nerve cells in the gastrointestinal tract, so it boasts quite an impressive network. This network is connected to the brain in our head. They talk to eachother which is why scientists have determined a link between gut health and cognitive abilities. Certain low carb diets start to make sense when we realize this link.
We've talked quite a bit about Ketogenic Diets and the potential to heal so many different illnesses. If you're curious, check out our Discover Blog for some information. Keto diets have been used for over 100 years to treat various neurological disorders. It's been used to treat epilepsy, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, diabetes, autism, traumatic brain injury, obesity, Multiple sclerosis, fatty liver disease, several types of cancers, That doesn't sound like a "fad" diet. The key is that a ketogenic diet feeds the gut microbiome healing foods while drastically limiting foods that cause harmful bacteria to flourish. Sugars, processed foods, carbohydrates, certain cooking oils, sugary drinks all feed the bad bugs. When the bad bugs overwhelm the good bugs, the resulting imbalance can throw us for a loop.

"Postcard quality pasture in Tasmania with the waters of the Bass Strait coming ashore on the town of Stanley, Tasmania which sits at the base of an ancient volcano named 'The Nut'. This location is one the most if not the most ideal location for grazing cattle in the world. Close enough to the chilly Southern Ocean, it rarely gets over 80° and under 32° which is luxury conditions for growing beef cattle. The soil biology is constantly applauding this unique climate for robust soil regeneration capability."
