We now know that the Microbiome is the largest organ in the human body, larger than the liver. The Microbiome communicates with your brain and most of the organs in your body to regulate many of your daily functions. The Microbiome also plays a critical role in:

  • Sending messages back and forth to your brain
  • Protecting you from Brain fog, Memory loss, and neurologic diseases like Alzheimer’s
  • Maintaining the youthful look of your skin and face
  • Determining how fast you age
  • Protecting you from Arthritis and chronic inflammatory disorders
  • Protecting you from Obesity and Diabetes
  • Protecting you from Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease
  • Regulating your sleep cycle
