So You’ve Done a Cleanse…Now What?

March 24, 2017
cleanse

Many of us woke up on New Years Day feeling the after-effect of a month of indulgences. The tired, foggy, exhausted feeling that can inspire even the most dramatic dietary changes and cleanses. And now it’s a few months later and we’ve persevered. We’ve even enjoyed some of it (isn’t an evening mug of Flor-Essence (US/CA) surprisingly lovely?), and now what? Where do we go from here? How do we continue these great feelings of health and vitality in normal…

This means that oral health probiotics may also help control yeast in the mouth and throat,…

Age

You’re heard it before: Act your age! Well, the same rule applies when it comes to choosing your probiotics. Throughout the human life cycle, the bacteria that make up the gut microbiome normally maintain a positive symbiotic relationship with their host, providing far-reaching metabolic, immunological, nutritional, and psychological benefits. However, an unbalanced microbiome—known as intestinal dysbiosis—can wreak havoc on one’s health. In order to thrive physically and mentally, and to prevent dysbiosis, we need beneficial gut bacteria known as probiotics.…

Human Adapted Probiotics? What?

February 20, 2017
human adapted

Probiotics may be invisible to the naked eye but they’ve been dominating product formulations, industry news, supplements research, and consumer demand for the past few years. The more you’ve read about them, the more you may have come across phrases like “human adapted” or “human strain”. What does this actually mean though?
