There’s a new, unexpected “exercise” that might support better health: vibrations. Whole body vibrations, where you stand on a platform that shakes you around a bit, gets a reaction out of your body’s various systems. Researchers are exploring the effects, and so far they’ve tallied up a few: improved symptoms of diabetes, and a healthier microbiome (helping with metabolism and inflammation).
It’s interesting, but you’re not likely to find it at your gym just yet. More research is needed to answer questions, like what are the long term effects? And it’s no replacement for regular exercise, you should still strengthen your heart, for instance.
While whole body vibrations might eventually be a nice complementary healthful exercise, you can get microbiome support now with Flora MGR, a good diet, and regular ‘ole exercise.
Good bacteria and good habits feed off each other—get the cycle going to really reach the health benefits (it takes about a year for lasting change). Probiotic supplements like Flora MGR are a boost along your way to help guide your microbiome in the right direction and help you reach your goals.
You can boost your probiotic colony with a diet rich in both prebiotics and probiotics. Probiotics come from fermented foods like yogurt and kefir. Prebiotics are foods that feed the growth of good bacteria like root vegetables.
Getting sick, certain medicines, and other events can wipe out your good bacteria. Sugar, inactivity, and some infections can encourage the growth of bad bacteria, feeding into inflammation and other health problems.
A little microbiome support each day goes a long way. Get started with Flora MGR.
