The Oral Microbiome Plays a Vital Role in Our Immune System

The Oral Microbiome is a vital, natural, and a supportive component to oral health and our overall health and wellness (our body’s immune system). The oral microbiome is filled with bacteria. The problem then is not that the oral microbiome has bacteria, but rather it can become unbalanced and unhealthy, which can interfere with our body’s natural defense and mess up our immune system.

Therefore, prebiotics plays a vital role in a development of a healthy immune system. The role of prebiotics is immensely important in the formation and balance of a healthy level of intestinal bacteria. Intestinal bacteria, as we know, has a direct influence on our immune system.

Science Discovered Bacteria to Be Vital for Overall Health and Wellness

Up until recently, very few medical professionals have paid attention to the role our colon plays in our overall health. The good news is that medical science has discovered that the bacteria in our colon is incredibly important to our overall health and wellness.

First, healthy bacteria in our gut work to strengthen the walls of our bowel, improve mineral absorption, and even regulates our hormone production - all of these are essential to our health and well-being.

“When we have healthy probiotic gut fed by prebiotics, our overall health improves - physically, mentally, and emotionally.”

Prebiotics are foods sources for the bacteria in our gut.  So, once can say that prebiotics act as a fertilizer for good bacteria, helping them grow and thrive. Healthy and robust good bacteria work to hinder the production of the bad disease-causing bacteria.

Prebiotics are a special form of dietary fiber that the good bacteria eat. Prebiotics is found in many fruits and vegetables, such as the skin of apples, bananas, onions and garlic, Jerusalem artichoke, chicory root and beans.

Prebiotics and Probiotics Can Provide a Wide Range of Health Benefits

The important thing to focus on is the fact that the combination of prebiotics and probiotics provide us with a wide range of health benefits, and most of these health benefits have been medically proven to be very important, especially for those who are fighting off disease. Moreover,

Moreover, prebiotics are known to be helpful in the fight against chronic digestive disorders, inflammatory bowel disease, heart disease, diabetes, and of course gum and tooth disease - just to name a few.

Prebiotic supplements provide a range of important benefits to our overall well-being. Science has proven the health benefits of prebiotics, including increased bone density, a strengthened immune system, a better-controlled weight and appetite, and improved bowel regularity. Recent studies have also found that prebiotics may even improve our mental health.
