How to Support Microbiome Balance

Our digestive microbiome includes all the microorganisms in our gut, and its health can affect overall health and well-being. Studies show that shifting our microbiome toward a healthier balance can have a positive impact on the rest of our body’s systems. A healthy gut microbiome supports a healthy inflammatory response, metabolism, circadian rhythms and more. Probiotics can support the health of the microbiome in your digestive tract, as can a healthy diet and lifestyle choices.

How do prebiotics promote a healthy gut microbiome?

Prebiotics nourish and support probiotic bacteria. Consuming prebiotic supplements can aid in the maintenance of a healthy balance of gut bacteria by supporting healthy probiotic growth.

How do you maintain the health of your microbiome?

Our health and the health of our microbiome are interdependent, so what’s good for our microbiome is generally good for us. Obviously, probiotics can help support the health of your digestive microbiome. But prebiotics (the fibers and polyphenols in healthy, plant-based foods) get metabolized by microbes in our gut—which provides fuel for their role of promoting overall health.

How do probiotics support your GI health?

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that naturally exist in a healthy digestive tract. Probiotic supplements help maintain a healthy microbiome balance and encourage a healthy balance of beneficial bacteria to the GI tract.
