Trillions of them…

How is your microflora today?

Your gut is the body’s largest immune organ and this is where your microflora lives… trillions of good and bad bacteria!

The balance of those good (70%) and bad (30%) bacteria is needed for immune function…and the basis of many other body systems to work

Naturally fermented foods such as cottage cheese, miso, soy sauce, fresh sauerkraut and also bio-yoghurts and kefir (a fermented milk drink) contain healthy bacteria.

If you have

  • recently taken antibiotics

  • had a bout of sickness or diarrhoea or

  • are generally feeling unwell

invest in a probiotic supplement to give your gut a healthy chance of fighting back.

Optibac is a make I have used, available in Superdrugs, Boots and also online (a few pence cheaper!)

Take care of your gut health as it supports many other body systems.
