About the microbiome

About the microbiome

Little roommates – big impact!
The human gastrointestinal tract consists of the stomach as well as the small, large and rectum with a total length of more than 8 metres. It is also densely populated with over 39 trillion microorganisms, known simply as intestinal microbiome or the intestinal flora.
A healthy intestinal microbiome, i.e. the totality of all microorganisms in our digestive tract, forms the basis for our general well-being. It is created during birth, when we receive our mother’s amniotic fluid and the bacteria that have settled there for the first time in our mouth.
In the course of our lives, the composition of these bacteria constantly changes in type and scope, because the intestinal microbiome “lives”. This is due to our diet and our environment, with which the body arranges itself symbiotically. As a result, each intestinal microbiome is a universe of its own and is different for each person.
