Soothing and nutritionally supporting the digestive system, to maintain healthy gut membranes. The microflora is usually the major controller of our immune system and wellness. It is an extremely complex living system that aggressively protects your body from outside offenders, processes our foods, helps to absorb nutrients and signals many of our body's functions. Among this ecosystem in the gut, there are both negative and positive bacteria. The ultimate goal is to keep both types of bacteria in harmony and balance.
Our circadian rhythm is directed by suprachiasmatic nucleus, an region from the brain that responds to light signals from the retina and tells us when to become alert and when to rest.

Tryptophan metabolism: Tryptophan is an extremely important amino acid solution and the raw material needed to make serotonin (think the happy neurotransmitter”) by the body. Presently there is a pathway, known as the kynurinine pathway that involves metabolism of tryptophan and accounts for nearly 95% of the stores of tryptophan in the body. In the case of pathogenic microbial infections in the gut (bacteria, yeast, or parasites) this pathway may be turned on and steal” from your body's tryptophan stores. This leads to depletion of serotonin stores and may end result in insomnia and depression.
