Because we ARE jerms...literally.‍ Yup, our bodies contain at least as much bacteria as human cells! The majority of bacteria live in our gut and form part of the gut microbiome.

Due to the obsessively sanitary nature of modern existence, bacteria’s gotten a bad rap. But these critters in our gut microbiome actually do a lot for us - they help digest food, regulate our immune system, improve our mood, stabilise weight and remove environmental toxins.

 Research shows that changes in the composition of our gut bacteria correlate with a wide range of health issues from diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis to depression, anxiety and even acne!

Improving our gut health by nurturing our good bacteria is key to achieving both optimal physical and mental health.
