About the Human Microbiome

Often we hear about gut flora and bacteria and the role they play in our overall well-being. Learn more about what the human microbiome is and why it matters for everyone to know about it to boost their immune system and improve their health.

Gut Health 101: What Is the Microbiome?

The microbiome is the collection of genes of the microbes that live in our bodies. Learn how these bacteria play a vital role in your health.

How Your Microbiome Controls Your Health

Research into microbiome shows that it is critical to every aspect of your health -- when your microbiome falls out of balance, you can become ill.

What is the gut microbiota? What is the human microbiome?

The microbiota and microbiome of the human body have been researched intensively in recent years. Find out about what we now know about them and what they mean for our health.


A microbiota is an "ecological community of commensal, symbiotic and pathogenic microorganisms"[1][2] found in and on all multicellular organisms studied to date from plants to animals. A microbiota includes bacteria, archaea, protists, fungi and viruses. Microbiota have been found to be crucial for immunologic, hormonal and metabolic homeostasis of their host. The synonymous term microbiome describes either the collective genomes of the microorganisms that reside in an environmental niche or the microorganisms themselves.[3][4][5]
