Did you know that the number of bacteria in our body outnumbers the number of cells in our body?
That is something that I personally find totally amazing. But you know in many ways we wouldn’t be able to live without them. Our bodies even use bacteria for digesting our food along with a healthy dose of enzymes and some really remarkable and well balanced processes but without those friendly bacteria in our digestive system we would find it very difficult to get the full range of nutrients that we need.
Now if you don’t know anything about the digestive system particularly about how the bacteria within our digestive system works, then the article I’ve linked to below is probably a very good primer and well worth reading. Enjoy!
