Stress and Your Microbiome!

  Stress and Your Microbiome! The University of Guelph (U of G), a comprehensive public research university in Guelph, Ontario, Canada recently led the first study of its kind to understand the relationship between stress and the microbiome as published in the journal of Biology Letters. U of G researchers found that red squirrels living in a low-stress environment harbored healthier communities of micro-organisms. Conversely, the greater the stress, when measured in the same squirrels two weeks later, revealed less bacterial diversity which could be an indication of poor health. It’s very possible these findings hold important implications for human health! Just to fill in a few blanks, microbiomes are all of the clusters e.g. communities of micro-organisms thriving in and on...

Key Benefits for Healthy Skin: #4 Smoother Skin

    Key Benefits for Healthy Skin: #4 Smoother Skin You may already know that eating or taking probiotics can improve your internal health, making things work better. But as the doctors, scientists and researchers at Quorum Innovations have discovered, applying their patented probiotic - Qi ProBiomics - directly to the skin produces the same benefits. All of us have good and bad bacteria on our skin, just as we do in our guts.  The good ones are called “probiotics” and when there is an imbalance between the two, acne or rosacea can occur as well as opening the door to letting impurities in, including disease. Importantly, the right balance can also make skin look smoother which ultimately means younger-looking...

  Key Benefits for Healthy Skin: #3 Brighten Your Skin The real beauty “secret” to glowing skin may, in fact, lie in a healthy skin microbiome.
