Your Microbiome what on earth is that?

Your Microbiome what on earth is that? | Mr Vitamins
'Microbiome'is a fancy word that describes all the 'bugs' in your body! To be a bit more technical, a Microbiome is simply a community of microorganisms that live in the same space. On and in the human body over 100 trillion microorganisms live in your mouth, your throat, in your gut, on our skin and elsewhere around your body. That is actually 10 times more than the number of human cells we have! The relationship between your microbiome and the human body is to beneficially work together with both depending on each other for survival. In your guts this bacteria started establishing itself at birth and continually changes throughout your lifetime. It is affected by your day-to-day diet and lifestyle and any medications you take along the way. Each one of us has our own different combination of the 1000 plus species that live in our gut.

Why do you need this Microbiome in your gut?

Some of the reasons include:
  1. Effective metabolism – which affects how well you absorb your nutrients, plays a role in fermentation of non-digestible carbohydrates and effects adiposity.
  2. To maintain a healthy gut
  3. Effective Immune system
  4. Support your nervous system playing a role on your mood, your sleep and your perception of pain.
  5. Bone Density
