The gastro-intestinal system is a complex, intriguing and wondrous organ: it has components that have not only evolved with us throughout history but that we now understand play an integral role in well-being and health in many ways.
A greater number of health conscious consumers are spending time, money and consideration selecting food for optimum health and well-being. After all, seven of the top 10 causes of death are linked to diet.

The human microbiome, which is comprised of all the microorganisms (the microbiota) that live on and in humans, plays an essential role in determining good health. Microbes cover every surface of our bodies, inside and out. They’re on our skin, inside our noses, mouths, whole respiratory tract, plentiful in our digestive tract, reproductive system, and so on. These microscopic life forms consist of thousands of species and outnumber our own 50 trillion cells by about 10 to one.
We are less than 1% human, if you factor in that more than 99% of the DNA contained within us belongs not to us, but to the microbes which we effectively host. The microbiome was only discovered in 2010! And it is not just a colony of good bacteria (gut microflora) but a complex organ that is responsible for the development and function of all the other organs and systems, from our brain to the immune system.
