 Your gut needs friendly bacteria for good digestion

Did you know that your gut contains ten times more bacteria than all the human cells in the entire body? More and more clinical studies show how the health of the microbiome (gut bacteria) influences not only your digestive health, but positively impacts overall wellbeing. Your gut bacteria perform many different functions including:
  • Promotes normal gastrointestinal health
  • Protects you from infections
  • Helps regulate healthy metabolism
  • Positively affects immune health
If you are experiencing mild digestive symptoms chances are your gut bacteria is out of balance. The good news is that you can improve gut microbiome by taking a quality daily probiotic supplement along with healthy dietary and lifestyle choices.
