How important is Biodiversity for your health?

How important is Biodiversity for your health? | Mr Vitamins

What on earth is Biodiversity and why does it matter?

Biodiversity is a term used to describe the many different forms of life in one specific habitat or ecosystem. The more biodiversity within a particular habitat the more that habitat benefits. When that habitat is your body then biodiversity also includes bacteria! The habitat of micro-organisms that live on and inside your body - commonly referred to as your microbiome - should have the greatest possible biodiversity.

Biodiversity = Bacterial Diversity

To achieve this you must increase the numbers of different kinds of bacteria. There are over 1000 different known species of good bacteria! And you can consume a good variety of these good bugs by taking a broad spectrum probiotic. Because having many kinds of good bugs provides you with greater protection from disease, you can expect long term health benefits such as:
  • Better vitamin and amino acid production
  • Better gut health and function
  • Boosted immunity
Bacterial diversity helps protect you from developing:
  • Allergies/eczema
  • Anxiety and/or depression
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Diabetes
  • Digestive problems (leaky gut, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Ulcerative Colitis, etc.)
  • Obesity
  • Weak immunity
  • Yeast infections

Broad Spectrum Probiotics protect your gut

Since different types of good bacteria prefer different living conditions, broad spectrum probiotics provide a collection of good bacteria that will populate multiple areas of your body. These areas include the small and large intestine, vaginal tract, and urinary tract.
