'It’s a strange modern-day conundrum that we have so much information on health and medical science, and yet many people struggle to feel well.
Many experts blame it on health issues arising from too much sugar, chemicals, dyes, preservatives, and other additives in our food.
The general public is learning more and more that we have to make healthy choices on our own and really look at food ingredients.
But something else has come to light.
We’ve been learning about our stomach’s microbiome for the last 150 years, but it’s not really mainstream knowledge.
And we haven’t really understood it.
The microbiome is the community of bacteria living in the gastrointestinal tract.
What’s surprising and new to us is that scientists are learning it actually plays a critical role in not only our digestion, but also regulating metabolism, our immune system, mood, vitality, and overall brain health.
Our microbiome even influences the long-term risk for Parkinson’s disease.
Our bodies contain 10 times more microbial cells than human cells! We now know that we couldn’t live long without the microbiome. ' - Sharen Ling
