Why everybody needs probiotics?

Your body is home to tens of trillion of bacteria and keeping them in balance is essential to your wellbeing.

You’re more microbe than human

For every cell in your body, there are 10 microbes.
They make up 1.5 to 2kg of your total body weight.
And include over 1,000 different species.

Your gut is their go-to home

95% of your microbes and bacteria live in your gut.
They are central to your wellbeing.
And need to be carefully balanced to function optimally.

They support your digestive system

Their enzymes break down the food your body cannot digest
So, you can extract more energy from what you eat.

But things can go wrong…

Your gut microbiota is influenced by your diet, lifestyle and environment.
Drastic changes can lead to dysbiosis –
when harmful bacteria outnumber the good.

A healthy gut means a happy you

Your gut needs the right bacteria to function properly.
Eating foods containing probiotics can have a positive effect —
adding more beneficial bacteria to support the good guys living there.
