New research has found that many seaweed extracts inhibit pathogenic oral bacteria known to cause gingivitis and gum disease.
Bacteria endotoxins - waste matter produced by bacteria - can flood our bodies and cause disease. This is exacerbated by leaky gut syndrome. The combination of the two has now been scientifically linked to a number of metabolic and inflammatory diseases, including heart disease.
It's back to school, and every new school year brings new cold and flu viral infections. Learn how certain bifidobacteria fight off and reduce colds and flu infections.

Ever wonder why some people seem to have more inflammation, fatigue and obesity than others despite their best efforts? New research has discovered the answer relates to the diversity of our gut’s probiotic bacteria.
Ultimately, our bodies tell a very different story of our origins and need for cooperation with other cellular communities (i.e. probiotics) than the human ego, and its various anthropocentric explanations of who we are and where we came from.
We use a lot of antibiotics. For coughs, cuts, urinary tract infections, and many times “just in case.”
If pasteurized milk is so healthy for children, why does it cause constipation?
There are gaping holes in vaccine science, especially the critical role of microflora in mediating vaccine effects, including adverse ones.
When seasonal allergies strike they can bring with them a host of nasty symptoms including itchy and watery eyes, sneezing, a running nose and sore throat due to post-nasal drip. Medicating with anti-histamines isn’t a healthy option and can leave many feeling drowsy and fatigued.

By now, we are well aware of the gut-brain connection. Can supplementing with probiotics reduce the risk for brain disorders in children, including ADHD and autism spectrum disorders?
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.
Researchers from UCLA's Geffen School of Medicine have determined that consuming a milk fermented with probiotics changed the brain activity of women, producing positive changes in signalling pathways along with emotional responses.
Did you know that there are billions of years of biological information encoded within your cells, and that depending on what you do or do not eat, the information incarnates or remains latent?
It is an awesome fact of nature that we have trillions of organisms within our body – containing completely foreign DNA -- some of which break down toxic chemicals that we humans have created to kill other things, but are now killing us, e.g. pesticides. Who are these strange helpers?
