Our microbiome plays a role in our health. Trillions of bacteria directly influence our digestive system.
Our microbiome is the collection of all the microbes associated with our body. In our intestine we have around 100 billion microbes, which is the same number of cells that we have in our entire body.
The analysis of genes that express microbes allows us to identify which metabolites produce. This helps determine your role in your body's ecosystem. But all that is not useful if they are only data. When we understand metabolites, we can also understand how to affect them with food, lifestyle and supplements to change intestinal bacteria.
Your health begins with the way your body processes food. The trillions of bacteria that live in the intestine and differ greatly from person to person are part of how you respond uniquely to food.
