A Healthy Oral Microbiome: The Key to Systemic Health

When we think of the human microbiome, we typically think of the gut microbiome in the lower gastrointestinal tract. However, thanks to many years of research, we have discovered many unique microbiomes throughout the body, such as the mouth, the urogenital tract, and even the skin. Each of these microbiomes exists to serve the body by providing a protective health benefit for their specific location and are considered to be well-balanced when the beneficial probiotic bacteria effectively compete with pathogenic bacteria.

Everything you wanted to know about probiotics

Probiotics and gut health

The microbiome is the ecosystem of microorganisms living within the body.  While there are different microbiomes in different areas of the body, the most well-studied is the microbiome in the digestive tract. More probiotic, beneficial bacteria inhabit this microbiome than we have cells in our entire body, which means the gut microbiome is incredibly complex and vital to our overall health and wellness.

What is Liposomal Vitamin C and Why Is It Superior to Traditional Vitamin C?

Vitamin C plays many important health supporting roles in the body. However, the bioavailability of vitamin C is limited by how much the intestines and the kidneys can absorb. Liposomal delivery systems utilize a phospholipid membrane to encase the nutrient, dramatically improving its absorption and allowing much larger doses to be utilized by the body.

Why Do We Need Liposomal Glutathione?

Glutathione is a tripeptide made up of the amino acids: cysteine, glycine, and glutamic acid. It is known as the master antioxidant in the body for its role in recycling other antioxidants such as vitamin C and vitamin E, and is one of the body’s primary mechanisms for decreasing oxidative stress.

The Science Behind Molecular Hydrogen Water

Molecular hydrogen is H2, or two hydrogens combined by a covalent bond into one stable molecule that easily crosses the blood brain barrier. Over 500 research studies showing therapeutic potential in over 170 human and animal models have been conducted.
