Did you know that hundreds of different species of bacteria have been identified living in the healthy human body? And that’s just the ones we know about. New technologies have helped scientists learn more about the human microbiome and this research has exploded in recent years. One of the major questions is how do these bacteria interact with a healthy immune system to promote balance and health? Many studies have shown that the cellular interactions are crucial for a healthy immune system and also to keep disease-related inflammation under control. Different companies have developed countless probiotic supplements to try and support this process, but not every probiotic is the right one for each individual. Talk with your Immunologist to learn more about your microbiome and any supplements that might be right for you.
