The Science Behind Bacillus Spore-Based Probiotics

The Science Behind Bacillus Spore-Based Probiotics Most of us are at least peripherally aware of the benefits of probiotics. But the probiotic puzzle can be a little tricky to piece together with so much conflicting information and every brand and probiotic strain claiming to be the “best”. But as they say, the proof is in…

How to Increase Good Bacteria In Gut Naturally and Improve Microbiome Diversity

How to Increase Good Bacteria In Gut Naturally and Improve Microbiome Diversity In today’s culture, many people have become self-proclaimed “germaphobes” – going to great lengths to disinfect, clean, and eradicate any potential microbes. And while hygiene and disinfectants certainly have their time and their place, fewer microbes are not always better. In fact, when…

Endotoxemia, Leaky Gut, and Lipopolysaccharides

Endotoxemia, Leaky Gut, and Lipopolysaccharides Your gut has a rather tricky job. It’s responsible for both absorbing essential nutrients from the food you eat while simultaneously shielding you from the harmful compounds that make their way into your body alongside that food. To perform this delicate job, your gut has a complex and highly efficient…

Probiotics and Triglycerides Randomized Double-Blind Study

Probiotics and Triglycerides Randomized Double-Blind Study At first glance, your heart health, metabolic health, and gut health might seem pretty unrelated. After all, modern medicine has compartmentalized our bodies – making it easy for us to separate our bodies into systems. Our digestive system, our cardiovascular system, and so on and so forth.  But the…

Digestive Issues and Benefits of Digestive Enzymes

While at first glance, digestion might seem like a simple process, it’s a little more complicated than simply eating food, absorbing nutrients, and ultimately eliminating it when we go to the bathroom. Our digestion relies on countless moving parts and chemical reactions. And one crucial compound we depend on for these chemical reactions and proper digestion is a class of molecules known as digestive enzymes.
