Probiotics get a massive amount of mention these days and for good reason. The evidence behind the microbiome and its connection and influence on the rest of the body is mounting by the day.
But rather than just follow the trends, let’s illuminate why this aspect of your body’s ecosystem is important for a plethora of reasons; ESPECIALLY when it comes to arming yourself with a balanced, appropriate immune response to whatever pathogen (virus or otherwise) you will inevitably encounter.
TYPES OF “Probiotics:”
The “Classic” (Lacto/Bifido Blend):
The Mycobiome. The Friendly Fungi & Saccharomyces Boulardii
The “Up & Comer” to complete the Comprehensive Microbiome Makeover: Soil Based

Inflammation has long been recognized as a common denominator among the mass majority of unfavorable conditions. However, NOT ALL INFLAMMATION is bad. In fact, sometimes it is necessary; particularly when dealing with a musculoskeletal injury or perceived discomfort post exercise, workout or training.
In these cases, inflammation is actually an imperative component of the healing process. If we narrow mindedly block this due to applying a somewhat ignorant, across the board damnation of all inflammation, in an effort to avoid temporary discomfort, we actually delay and could outright block the healing process and our ability to fully recover.
Follow us now on the oft ignored explanation and mechanism behind this, and what you can do intelligently facilitate a healthy immune response, which includes that optimal healing and recovery we all want to achieve.
