The gut microbiome: good and bad bacteria
You might be surprised to learn that there are around 100 trillion gut bacteria living in your digestive system, made up of 300 to 500 different species.
The word bacteria has negative connotations and with good reason. Some bacteria are bad for you, causing illness and disease if you come into contact with them.
However, there are many bacteria which are known as “good” or “friendly” bacteria, already living inside us.
These microorganisms that live in your intestines and digestive tract are collectively known as the gut microbiome, and it is important that you keep this well balanced for your overall digestive health. Taking a supplement can help with this.
You may have heard of the gut microbiome by the older term for it, gut flora. This was changed as microorganisms, like bacteria, have been reclassified.
How to tell if you have an unhealthy gut
There are lots of things that can contribute to the imbalance of our gut microbiome, including high levels of stress, not getting enough sleep or eating foods which are high in sugar.
What can a friendly bacteria supplement do?
It is thought that a friendly bacteria supplement can help increase their levels in your gut, after it has been disrupted.

Scientific technology has been used when creating this supplement, to ensure that the bacteria reaches the gut alive.
