Story at-a-glance -

  • Researchers determined those with healthy colonies of beneficial Bacillus bacteria did not have dangerous, and sometimes antibiotic-resistant, Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) bacteria in their nose or gut
  • S. aureus is the leading cause of bacterial infections in health care and community settings. Over 50 percent of isolates in the U.S. are antibiotic-resistant, increasing the challenge of fighting infections from skin boils to deadly endocarditis, an infection of the heart muscle
  • Maintaining properly balanced bacteria to nourish good physical and mental health is a challenge when bombarded by environmental toxins, poor diet and antibiotics in your food or prescribed by your physician
  • Fermented foods seed your gut with beneficial bacteria and fiber feed those bacteria, helping to balance your gut microbiome and reduce your risk of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, colorectal cancer, Parkinson’s disease and obesity

The nearly 100 trillion bacteria living on and in your body perform a wide variety of functions. We have only now come to realize the bacteria must be properly balanced and nourished to maintain good physical and mental health.

Although the Human Genome Project was expected to demonstrate gene-based therapies could rid us of disease, it actually revealed genetic makeup plays a much smaller role than previously imagined. Emerging science also shows your microbiome may be rapidly altered, for better or worse, based on factors such as your diet, lifestyle and chemical exposure.
