Nutritional Resilience and Performance: Emerging Science Gaining Traction
Our food choices also impact anxiety levels and stress, both of which can impair the inner shield of our resilience. Saliva is really the first defense to elevate our level of digestion, immune strength and overall resilience. Learn some of the silent and hidden foods that damage our resilience and alter our saliva production. Discover the importance that saliva is for recovering from illness and bringing about homeostasis.  Learn tips and tools for helping you detect if you have a saliva output that is beneficial to you and how to correct if it is not optimal.  Have an opportunity to be on the cutting edge of what emerging research is saying for its impact with immune system and digestion.
