Did you know this about your gut?

OVER 50 TRILLION!

There are more than 50 trillion bacterial cells in our body!

 

That is more than the amount of our actual human cells.

 

90% of these bacterial cells live in our gut.

Microbrial fingerprint?

Each of us has a gut microbiome fingerprint unique from anyone else.

 

Unlike your fingerprint - your microbial fingerprint can change.

 

Maintaining a balance of helpful bacteria versus harmful is essential to overall health.

Change is possible!

Diet plays a critical role for the bacteria in our gut.

 

Diet-driven changes can occur within days or weeks.

 

If you change your diet, your gut flora can change as well.
