Our colon is where most of our necessary gut bacteria should reside. These bacteria are instrumental in not only regulating healthy easy bowel movements but allow for the required elimination of toxins that our livers have carefully packaged for escape. Our colons are also a place for production of biotin, vitamin K, and neurotransmitters. This is where a verified, high-quality probiotic can be very supportive. Proper balance of our gut bacteria is crucial for immune function and balance, and production of biotin, vitamin K, and mood-altering neurotransmitters.
