Our Inner Friends

There are 100 trillion cells in your body, but only one in 10 is human. The rest are bacteria, fungi, viruses and other microorganisms, i.e. your microflora.
Your microflora influence your genetic expression, your immune system, your weight and your risk of numerous chronic and acute diseases, from diabetes to cancer.
It is becoming increasingly clear that destroying your gut flora with antibiotics and poor diet is a primary factor in rising disease rates.
A healthy low-sugar diet, along with plenty of unpasteurized fermented foods and/or a high-quality probiotic supplement, is crucial to restoring and maintaining both your gut’s inner ecosystem and your overall health.
