People with reduced microbial diversity in the gut are at a higher risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD).[ii] A recent study showed that heart failure patients who eat more fibre have healthier balance of gut bacteria, which has been linked to reduced risk of death and need for a heart transplant.[iii]
So it’s clear that one of the most natural ways to support heart health includes optimising our gut bacteria through diet and using the right probiotics that have been researched for their heart health-promoting properties.

Did you know that most women will develop either a fungal or bacterial vaginal infection in their lifetime? For some women, it may become chronic and debilitating, affecting general wellbeing, confidence, sex life, and more. Are you or your partner affected?

Our blog explores everything from the common signs and symptoms, the research on vaginal microbiome and which probiotic strains are the most beneficial, to what dietary and lifestyle factors can help!
