It has long been established that gut bacteria are largely connected to immune function and metabolic health. However, researchers have only scratched the surface when it comes to their role in thinking, boosting overall mood, and addressing depression and other mental health conditions. A trio of studies confirms the favorable action of probiotics in tackling the growing problem of depression and anxiety disorders
Leaky Gut Syndrome is a rapidly growing condition that millions of people struggle with and don't even know it can lead to many other health conditions.

Amazing new research indicates that humans are capable of synthesizing vitamin C via their highly complex and capable microbiome.
Increasingly, it is hard to find honey being used in foods or as a sweetener. Instead, sugar and corn-derived high fructose corn syrup has displaced it. But honey is vastly different than sugar.
Alarmingly, about 85% of people with depression also experience some anxiety; about 90% of people with anxiety suffer some depression
Candida (Yeast) is a late sign of impaired gut health.
Candida is associated with craving simple carbs (white foods--pasta, bread, rice, and all sugars) which feed the yeast. Candida develops for many reasons. Basically, it is a 'helper' attempting to create balance in the gut, generally due to antibiotics, preservatives, heavy metal toxins and sterile foods.
We can make candida obsolete and unnecessary by rebalancing gut microbials.
Did you know that probiotic bacteria are capable of helping you detoxify the most noxious chemicals known to humankind?
Could bacteria and related microbes, widely believed to be a primary cause of disease, explain how we are capable of surviving through the self-created chemical nightmare of industrialized society?
Doctors frequently misuse antibiotics when treating patients hospitalized with respiratory tract infections raising concerns about developing resistant strains of bacteria. Probiotics promote a strong immune system and healthy digestion in addition to providing many other health benefits. Here's how to get natural probiotics from your food.

For 95% of our evolutionary history, we were hunter-gatherers. What was our microbial-host relationship like for the duration of that experience? A new study on the Hadza people finally sheds light on this fascinating topic.
There are gaping holes in vaccine science, especially the critical role of microflora in mediating vaccine effects, including adverse ones.
Given what we are now exposed to through our food, air, and water, detoxification has become a modern-day necessity. Without the daily activation of ancient, effective physiological pathways designed to remove environmental toxins, we are bound to get sick. So, what are some simple, effective ways we rid our body of its daily toxic burden?
We use a lot of antibiotics. For coughs, cuts, urinary tract infections, and many times “just in case.”
There is a compelling body of research on the benefits of probiotics in children's health. Pat Robinson, of Heal Thyself, has done an excellent job of reviewing the probiotic research on our database, producing a convenient guide to 27 probiotic benefits for children
As we reported on back in June of last year in an exposé titled, Consumer Alert: BPA-Free Goods Still Contain Toxin Bisphenol, the petrochemical bisphenol A (BPA), a ubiquitous ingredient in thousands of consumer products and which has been linked to a wide range of serious adverse health effects, has been removed by many ostensibly scrupulous manufacturers in favor of another equally toxic analog in the same chemical class, known as bisphenol S (BPS).
