Are Probiotics the new Multi’s?

March 14, 2018

Supplementing with probiotics can influence the composition of our whole microbiome. They positively alter the microbiome environment and encourage the proliferation of what is now dubbed our “core” bacterial strains. Exciting research is also revealing that healthy people have a diverse variety of microbiota and conversely a reduction in this microbiota diversity is linked to diseases such as obesity, insulin resistance, inflammation and bowel disease.

March 27, 2017

There’s something missing – and I’ve been searching for it for a few years now.

But it is equally important for optimal health and happiness that we create balance in our lives… time to stop, relax, reflect....

But the 15 year research done by Dr Jacka and her team from Deakin University shows a clear link between junk food and anxiety and depression. The study declares that “eating fried foods s....
