The gut microbiome (AKA your community of tiny organisms on the inside) is really important for health. We know this because research has shown us over and over again… with links made between loads of health conditions and the state of your gut. So what happens when we take antibiotics?
They have varied strengths and benefits. Some, such asL. acidophilus, can treat urinary tract infections whileL. rhamnosusis a great choice for allergies.

The sun is out and it’s time to get social. Enjoy it! Eat, drink and be merry. In the interest of balance, we also recommend you enjoy these 5 seasonal gut friendly foods that are good for your tribe on the inside.
