Good health starts in your guts
There are trillions of tiny microorganisms, mainly bacteria, living inside your intestines! We call this (the DNA makeup of these microorganisms) the gut microbiome. These small but powerful little guys play a big role in our digestive and overall health.
But not all bacteria are the same.
Some bugs in our belly work with us to improve our health by:
- Strengthening our immune system
- Helping to absorb nutrients
- Protecting against chronic disease
- Improving regularity
- Synthesising vitamins and other nutrients
- Repairing gut damage
- Producing serotonin – the “happy hormone”
- Lowering the pH of our gut
Diet, stress, exercise and anti-biotic use are all factors that can disrupt the balance of gut bacteria. When the microbiome is out of balance, it can impact on our physical and mental wellbeing.
Boosting the better bugs with Probiotics

5 reasons to love your guts
70% of our immune system is found in our digestive tract! You can help nourish your gut and support your immune system by eating well and exercising regularly.
Every person has a unique and diverse microbiome. Our bacterial fingerprint is even more unique than our DNA!
Gut bugs are involved in many other important processes that extend beyond your gut, including your metabolism, body weight, and immune regulation, as well as your brain functions and mood. Getting the right balance can help you feel better all round!
At least half of the cells in our bodies are not our own! We are hosts to trillions of bacteria, most of which live in the gut. Take good care of them, and they’ll take care of you.
Gut bacteria manufacture about 95 percent of the body's supply of serotonin aka the Happy Hormone. Getting your microbiome in balance is sure to make you smile.
