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. 

That’s why taking probiotics and fermented products is crucial in order to sustain a healthy gut microbiome and help promote overall health and longevity. 

But, diet and nutrition start from the mouth, and even though we know there are microorganisms living in our oral cavity, we’ve only recently discovered the importance and role a healthy oral microbiome plays in our systemic health.

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. 

When the thyroid isn’t able to perform its functions and release important thyroid hormones to regulate your metabolism, you’re usually dealing with one of two conditions: an overactive or an underactive thyroid. Neither one is favorable and can lead to myriad different complications, from goiter and heart problems to pregnancy issues and even thyroid cancer

Cortisol is our number one stress hormone that plays a huge role in regulating a variety of different processes in the human body. From helping you fight an infection or deal with an injury to giving you a boost of energy to run from immediate danger and focus in times of crisis.

Even though our cortisol levels change throughout the day, they are supposed to be the highest in the morning when we wake up and gradually decrease throughout the day. If there’s an event or a stressful situation occurring at 3 pm, it’s naturally going to spike, but it should be followed by a natural decline.
