There are many superfoods out there; they variously support heart, bones, brain health, and many other things, and they’re an important nutritional building block. But as research comes out, there may not be an easier, more sweeping way to support health than building up your good gut bacteria with probiotics.

Probiotics, which are found in fermented foods like yogurt and kefir or in high-quality probiotic supplements like Flora MGR, are such an integral part of our health they may partially define who we are. Our general mood, our desires, and other things that we think we’re in control of may actually be those little bacteria talking to our brain.

Just the Germ-iest

March 7, 2018

Most people have a healthy respect for, if not outright fear of, public bathrooms. Caution is applied so there’s minimal touching of doors, sinks, and of course the toilet seat. Between the caution, frequent cleanings, and no touch devices, bathrooms actually aren’t so bad, and may not be what you need to worry about—instead you should focus on your office.

Desks, keyboards, phones, and the office kitchen are covered in germs, according to a new study. Most office workers pulled admitted to cleaning their desk once a month or never, with few cleaning regularly.

The big issue is that everytime someone is coming on sick, with stomach issues, cold, flu, whatever—they aren’t just spreading their germs, those germs are being left to incubate.
Even inconsequential actions, like a sneeze not because you’re sick, just a tickle, are laying a few nasty germs down in a place they can grow.

Your lunch may have too few germs for you to care about, but if you ate it at your desk, a handful of microbes might blossom over the next few weeks into a stomach bug.

Here’s the other thing, most of the germs that accumulate in a space like your desk are “harmless”, in that they’re just a part of your natural microbiome, and not giving you the flu. Things don’t need to be sterile, but the microbiome isn’t to be completely dismissed, either. Scientists are now attributing a whole host of chronic health conditions to the composition of those bacteria, including weight and mental health. It’s conceivable that enough contact with a grumpy coworkers desk could rub off some grumpiness, so to speak.

Besides cleaning your desk, you can support your immune system with colloidal silver and help maintain a diverse and robust healthy microbiome with a probiotic supplement like Flora MGR.

As the warm weather inspires you to get moving more, you might find your muscles aching. Increased activity, doing something new, or just ending a period of inactivity can cause some minor aches, or if you’re not careful, major ones. Prevention goes a long way, but if you get caught with some pain, try starting with natural, non-addictive support, like Dakota Muscle Relief. Read more about Dakota Muscle Relief…


Every year, Lyme Disease spreads a little further. Some projections say Lyme Disease (and the ticks that carry it) will have explosive growth over the next few years. One interesting harbinger may be horses; with lots of exposure to tall grass/nature and the small mammals that carry ticks, horses may be more prone to Lyme Disease (if harder to diagnose).
