Microbes Matter Most™
The microbiome holds the key to health
Why Do Microbes Matter Most?
Our bodies are host to literally trillions of microbes – more than the stars in the Milky Way, more than our own cells. As they go about their lives, they influence ours.
Only in the last few decades have we begun to understand the magnitude of these small passengers. The term “microbiome” (first used in the scientific community in the late 1980s) surged in public awareness over the last 20 years. It describes the microorganisms coexisting in our bodies – bacteria, viruses, fungi.
Microbes play a vital role in whole-body health
Scientists eager to explore this new realm have provided a wealth of research – over 100,000 studies. Proof of the vital role microbes play in whole-body health. They simultaneously foster the development of immune competence and tolerance.
Providing us with benefits we are only beginning to grasp – hydration, nutrient synthesis, protection against invaders, tissue healing, and more. In short, we need them.
A delicate balance
The vast majority of microbes reside in the gastrointestinal tract. But microbes also live in and influence other parts of the body. From the mouth to the skin, to the bladder, and even the middle ear, each niche in the body houses a unique and delicate blend of microorganisms.
Good bugs gone bad
But not all microorganisms bring benefits – balance is essential. What happens when balance is lost? Dysbiosis. Our bodies not only lose the benefits the good guys bring, they have an additional mountain of metabolic refuse to manage – thanks to opportunists or invaders, or both.
Dysbiosis, wherever it occurs, has system-wide effects. That’s why gut health is foundational care in Integrative Medicine. And why the oral microbiome is emerging as a crucial part of routine care.
The Natural Solution
At Biocidin Botanicals, we understand that microbes are not an enemy to be eliminated but an ecology to be nourished. How do we do that?
By working with the gift of botanicals.
A powerful synergy
Each plant offers multiple activities – and when layered together in a formula – a powerful synergy occurs. Imagine the combination of microbiome-balancing support, augmented by activity against biofilms and protective antioxidant action. The outcome is not additive but exponential!
Botanicals offer a graceful and mighty solution that cannot be duplicated. The power to achieve and maintain balance. The power to thrive.
