The New Science That Links Gut Health To Happiness

p>         Science is only beginning to understand the role of the microbiome to the inner workings of our body. We discuss the many areas (of both wellness and disease) that are impacted by the correlating health of the microbiome in our article Eating Probiotic-Rich Foods to Fortify and Nurture a Microbiome Health. A fascinating area of scientific study is the relationship between the brain and gut connection. The gut is home to the bulk of your microbiome—although it spans your body occupying space in your mouth, lungs and genitals, the immense colony of good bacteria called...

Why You Should Eat Probiotic-Rich Whole Foods Now to Fortify and Nurture Your Microbiome Health

To start off this article, we quote Dr. David Perlmutter, a leading medical expert on microbiome health, and the board certified neurologist who authored Brain Maker, The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain – For Life: “It’s now undeniable that our intestinal organisms participate in a wide variety of actions, including immune system functioning, detoxification, inflammation, neurotransmitter and vitamin production, nutrient absorption, signaling being hungry or full, and utilizing being carbohydrates and fat. All of these processes factor mightily into whether or not we experience allergies, asthma, ADHD, cancer, diabetes, or dementia. The microbiome affects our...

Here’s the Top 7 list of the basic questions we get about the process, its results and fermented pickles: Are all pickles equally healthy?

What is My Microbiome?

The Gut, Gut Biome and Microbiome... are these all the same thing? And what's the difference?  Your gut is your body's digestive track, the small and large intestine. Your gut's biome, or microbiome is something more.  Simply put, the microbiome is the vast colony (an ecosystem really) of bacterial cells that live in the body. Each and every living animal and human on the planet has a microbiota colony (or microbiome) living within them. This colony grows, develops and colonizes over time and begins when a baby is born and first exposed to her or his mother’s vaginal bacteria. Our...
