Health and Wellness Information

Nurturing your gut health and the thriving community of microbes within it, known as the gut microbiome, is a cornerstone of your overall well-being. Embracing a lifestyle that includes ample sleep, regular physical activity, effective stress management, and a diet rich in fibres from a diverse array of fruits, vegetables, and fermented foods, alongside the inclusion of probiotics, lays the foundation for robust gut health.

Probiotics, affectionately termed as "friendly bacteria", are live microorganisms that, when ingested in adequate amounts, provide health benefits upon their host*. Although these beneficial bacteria typically don't set up permanent residence in our gut, many of them exert their positive effects right where it counts: in the colon. Here, they interact harmoniously with the existing bacterial population, enhancing its health and functionality**. Research highlights the strain-specific virtues of probiotics, particularly in bolstering gut health.
