The quality of the 30 trillion bacteria (your microbiome) in your intestines matters. The fiber you eat is used as food for your beneficial bacteria.
Known disrupters of these beneficial bacteria include sugars, processed foods, artificial sweeteners, alcohol, too many antibiotics, other prescription and over-the-counter drugs, chemical exposures, the Standard American Diet(SAD) and lifestyle.
As your intestinal tract gets healthier, your mitochondrial metabolism improves. These mitochondria (energy producing factories) in your muscle cells and elsewhere become more efficient at producing energy.
Mood, memory, movement and the symptoms of many chronic conditions improve when your microbiome (those beneficial bacteria in your gut) and your mitochondria are working well.
How are your M & M matters?
