Understanding Your Microbiome
Did you know that the cells in your body are outnumbered 10 to 1 by bacterial cells? They are responsible for our health or disease in a number of ways. The Human Microbiome Project was started in 2008 to determine how microbes are associated with health and disease.
If you have a history of using antibiotics, antacids, and NSAIDS in addition to a highly refined sugar and white flour diet, your gut ‘ecosystem’ may be disrupted. This may result in bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea, brain fog, and weight gain. Non-beneficial gut bacteria may also cause poor sleep, chronic anxiety, acne, fatigue, and more. Improving the health of your microbiome is essential to optimal health.
Happy Gut, Happy You!

To nourish your gut microbiome and protect against disease, a daily probiotic can support digestion, assimilation of nutrients, immune response and serotonin production since this “feel good hormone” is largely produced in the digestive tract and dependent on beneficial bacteria. Research shows a strong link between probiotics and improved health, including positive effects on depression and anxiety, intestinal and digestive health, as well as immune support.

As stress and long term use of certain medications may cause intestinal permeability or “leaky gut”, certain nutrients can support repair of gut lining and reduce inflammation. Enzymetica’s GI Recovery contains superfoods and L-Glutamine to promote gut healing resulting in optimal energy, gut function and recovery from digestive upsets.

Whatever your health issue may be, supporting your ‘microbiome’ is essential. Visit The Natural Alternative and let my amazing team help you choose from a wide variety of pre- and probiotics, digestive enzymes and supplements to support a healthy gut lining.
