In 2008, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) initiated a $115-million dollar, five-year project to sequence and characterize the human microbiome. By now, you’ve probably heard of the microbiome; it’s the genetic makeup of the trillions upon trillions of microorganisms that populate our bodies. As a result of this work by the NIH we now have the scientific tools to investigate the full component of microbial activity in our bodies and what has been discovered is astounding.
We know, for instance, that the average person carries approximately 40 trillion microorganisms weighing three pounds, roughly the weight of your brain and little lighter than your liver. This community of microbes is called the microbiota and it plays a critical role in your health. Research shows that alterations in microbiota are implicated in obesity, diabetes, neurodegenerative disease, some cancers, and other chronic diseases. In health, the microbiota regulates nutrient uptake, immune system function, sleeping patterns, eating behavior, moods, and the list goes on.
We are proud to offer the Hero ProbioticsTM brand of supplements to you because we know that they support microbial diversity, proper immune function and digestion. Unlike other supplement companies that only promote products for the sake of sales, we take a more responsible approach by taking the time and effort to explain why healthy diets, combined with probiotic supplementation, is important for good health. While Liberty Bion promotes and sells high-quality, natural supplements, we also promote healthy living strategies and in this way, we are a lifestyle company.
Like most health-conscience consumers, we understand that overall good health requires more than the consumption of natural supplements. After all, supplements are most effective when they are supplementing a healthy lifestyle that involves good diet and exercise choices. We are here to help you with excellent ideas on ways to improve your gut health through the consumption of foods that support the good bacteria in your gut at the expense of the bad ones. We do this in easy to understand language through blog posts and various articles.
Using probiotic strains that are naturally resistant to the hostile environment of the gut, we are proud to offer one of the world’s most effective probiotic supplements at an affordable price. Hero ProbioticsTM out-performs other probiotic supplements and we are excited to help people feel their best by delivering to them the full benefit that probiotics can offer.
For us it’s liberating, and empowering, to understand that we can positively impact the population of microorganisms that make up our microbiota and so profoundly affects health. We hope that you feel the same way. Join us as we continue this journey of discovery and good health through healthy living strategies.
