Tip of the Day

Our body’s contain more bacteria cells than human cells, 100 trillion to 10 trillion respectively. Many healthy bacteria found in nature are essential for our health and wellbeing. Make time every day to be outside and get a little dirty. Gardening, hiking, or having a picnic are all good ways to get a healthy dose of bacteria. It can also help to add a spore-based probiotic to make sure you are getting healthy soil bacteria into your gut everyday.
