A Healthy Oral Microbiome. You’ve probably heard of the gut microbiome, the trillions of microorganisms living in your digestive tract. They dictate almost every single function in your body and without a healthy balance, you’re at risk of developing diseases and illnesses.

Naturally Support Your Thyroid. The thyroid gland is one of the most important organs in your body, regulating everything from your metabolism and body temperature to how your body deals with stress and absorbs nutrients. It’s also one of the most common organs to be negatively affected by chronic stress and inflammation, causing it to malfunction.

Neither one is favorable and can lead to myriad different complications, from goiter and heart problems to pregnancy issues and even thyroid cancer.
