Please meet the orchestra within you:The Microbiome.
The Microbiome is a complex ecosystem of trillions of bacteria and other microorganisms living within us - they can either help or harm our overall health.
This is a fascinating topic to understand your body and its interactions with nature. The science of the microbiome is evolving everyday. We are summarizing below some key notions. Join our mailing list to be updated about the latest research.
5 pounds of guts and glory
That’s the average weight of the gut microbiome within you. This complex and beautiful universe within you is like an orchestra and you can be the maestro of your health with the right diet interventions. We are learning more everyday and hopeful this reshapes medicine.
Unique Universe of You
Your microbial mix is unique and develops as a result of genetics as well as diet, environment, and location. In 2015, studies have shown that your microbiome can be considered as a fingerprint.
Better than a Lullaby
The gut microbiome produces and releases many of the same sleep-influencing neurotransmitters—dopamine, serotonin, and others—that are also produced by the brain. Melatonin is produced in the gut as well as the brain.

“The trillions of microbes in our gut breakdown food and extract crucial information that reaches every part of our body. They influence our metabolism, emotions, the way we think, our cognitive abilities, and also brain health in the long term”

Let’s start with some basics: Prebiotics, Probiotics, DysbiosisThe microbiome is vital for long-term health but let’s keep cool and don’t buy into all the hype. Learn your basics and question marketing claims you will come across.
PrebioticsSkip that white bread…
Food components (usually dietary fiber) that are:
  1. Non-digestible and resitant to breakdown by stomach acid and enzymes in the human gut;
  2. Fermented by intestinal microorganisms;
  3. Stimulating the growth and activity of beneficial bacteria.
ProbioticsDig into the pickles…
Living microorganisms that are friendly and helpful to the human microbiome when consumed in the right proportions.Although the hype has been everywhere, getting probiotics from supplements is not backed by science yet.
DysbiosisEven your gut is claiming diversity…
Microbial imbalance and lack of diversity in the gut microbiome.This can be caused by repeated and inappropriate use of antibiotics, alcohol, meat and dairy consumption and lack of dietary fiber.A study from Harvard School of Public Health shows that a plant-based diet is best to avoid dysbiosis.
