Gut Microbiota

Also known as intestinal flora, gut microbiota are good and bad bacteria that live inside your intestine. They facilitate digestion, support vitamin synthesis, as well as protect the body from harmful pathogens. Numerous daily triggers can affect your balance of good and bad gut bacteria, and when this happens, you may become susceptible to gut disorders. 2
