What is microbiome health? Your gut microbiome is composed of trillions of microbes that can be helpful, harmful, or neutral. Pathogenic, or disease-promoting, microbes can contribute to conditions like depression, IBS, IBD, leaky gut, and chronic fatigue. Symbiotic microbes can benefit you in a multitude of ways, including boosting your immune system and improving your digestive health. Diversifying and balancing the bacteria in your gut with a tailored probiotic is a key way to take action in promoting good microbiome health.
There is so much to learn about how your gut bacteria interacts with your body, including your brain, and how supplementing with precision probiotics can improve your health and wellness. Get started with one of our blog posts below.
Resolutions take willpower and commitment. But what if there’s something that could make it a little bit easier?

Not surprisingly, your microbiome could be the support system that you need.
Your gut bacteria play an important role in the human body. Your microbiome is connected to more than just your gut; from mental clarity to your immune system, it is the foundation for good health. And what you eat affects your gut bacteria, for better or worse.

Keto rocked the science world when researchers discovered that a high fat diet doesn’t always mean high blood pressure and skyrocketing cholesterol. But does that mean that saturated fats are fair game for free consumption? Not necessarily. We’re now realizing that the danger of saturated fat doesn’t lie in our arteries, but in the microbes of the gut.
You may have heard of probiotic strains L. acidophilus. Well, that “L” stands for lactobacillus and there is a reason why it’s the most researched of any bacteria in the gut microbiome.
