A microbiome is an incredible ecosystem of microbes, made up of trillions of bacteria, viruses and fungi floating through our bodies at any given moment.

Although many different type of microbes live inside you, we know the most about bacteria. For instance, there are as many as bacterial cells as human cells in our body, with each individual strain playing a different role in our health. 

The more diverse these strains, the healthier your microbiome becomes. It is throughout the early stages of life that a microbiome is formed, and by age three, a person’s microbiome is established.
