Better Body Chemistry

through “good” bacteria

Quick summary of the science :

The microbiome, particularly the gut microbiome, represents one of the most fascinating frontiers in modern biology and health sciences. This complex network of microorganisms, which includes bacteria, fungi, and viruses, lives primarily in our digestive systems and plays a pivotal role in our overall health. The diversity and balance of these microbial communities are crucial for many bodily functions, influencing everything from digestion and nutrient absorption to immune system strength and even mood regulation.
