We are all covered in trillions of microbes —in fact, they outnumber human cells 10:1. Like the rainforest, the healthy human microbiome is a balanced ecosystem.
Microbes perform essential functions such as digesting food and synthesizing vitamins. Studies have also linked the microbiome to human mood and behavior, as well as many gut disorders, eczema, and chronic sinusitis.
