Now more than ever, the world is hyper-focused on supporting and optimizing our immune systems. But can what we eat help us fight off infections?

Mucilage, the fiber found in chia, is a prebiotic aka food for the "good bacteria" in our gut which works to keep the digestive tract healthy. And a healthy gut is directly linked to stronger immunity!
