Thriving and diverse gut flora as the key to health is becoming widely known. Science is discovering the vast similarities between the gut and root microbial communities. Their capacity for symbiosis and harmony or depletion and disease is all based how we approach them. When the soil is full of life-supporting probiotics, the food grown there is your ally in gut health, nutrient absorption, and immune resilience. When the soil is not healthy it leads to chronic disease and degeneration. In order to invest in our collective health, we need to invest in rebuilding the soil.
