What Does the Gut Microbiome Do?
Your gut microbiome is a central hub in so many important systems in your body. It’s where your body breaks down food into nutrients that power your brain cells, give you energy, protect your heart, and more!
Also, up to 80% of your immune system cells live in your gut. In fact, your gut bacteria and immune cells even communicate! They all work together to secure your microbiome from being taken over by harmful bacteria, viruses, yeast, and other pathogens.
An unhealthy microbiome typically starts with digestive issues. This can cause chronic inflammation that begins to travel throughout the system. That’s where there’s such a strong connection between common digestive orders (like IBS and IBD) and heart disease, mental health disorders, type 2 diabetes, and other health conditions.
Maintain a healthy microbiome with an Ombre Gut Health Test. We can help you discover which good bacteria you’re lacking in, and which harmful bacteria you need to keep an eye on.
Based on that information, we provide you with personalized food suggestions to help nourish beneficial bacteria. We also recommend a targeted probiotic that is right for you!
