The Marvel of Our Body’s Microbiome

Nurse Mary Jo The Marvel of Our Body’s Microbiome

The human body is an intricate and wondrous machine, often described as ‘The Marvel of Our Body’s Microbiome.’ But many people don’t realize that it’s not just our organs, muscles, and bones that make us function – it’s also trillions of tiny organisms known as the microbiome. These microscopic inhabitants play a crucial role in our overall health and well-being. Today, let’s dive deep into the fascinating world of our body’s microbiome and explore how exercise, fasting, and the Unicity Feel Great system can help you harness its power for a healthier life.

Understanding the Microbiome

Our bodies host many microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other microscopic creatures. Collectively, they form the microbiome. While these might sound like invaders, they’re actually beneficial. A balanced microbiome supports digestion, boosts immunity, regulates mood, and even affects our weight. It’s no exaggeration to say that the health of our microbiome influences virtually every aspect of our health.

The Microbiome Beyond the Gut

While the gut is often the star of the microbiome conversation, it’s crucial to understand that our entire body is teeming with these helpful organisms. From our skin, mouth, and lungs to our urogenital tract, these microbes play different roles in keeping our systems running smoothly.

Why a Healthy Microbiome Matters

  1. Digestive Health: A balanced gut microbiome ensures efficient nutrient absorption and waste elimination. It can also prevent or alleviate conditions like IBS, bloating, and constipation.
  2. Mental Health: There’s a gut-brain connection where the microbiome influences neurotransmitter production, potentially impacting mood and mental health.
  3. Immunity: Our microbiota strengthens our immune system, helping fend off harmful pathogens and reducing the risk of chronic diseases.

Exercise, Fasting, and the Microbiome

Exercise: Physical activity influences the diversity and number of microbes in our gut. A diversified microbiome is a hallmark of good health. Exercise helps reduce inflammation, which in turn supports a thriving microbiome.

Fasting: Periods of fasting or controlled eating can reset our microbiome, encouraging the growth of beneficial bacteria. Intermittent fasting, for example, has been shown to improve gut health, aiding digestion and enhancing immunity.

Probiotics: Allies for a Thriving Microbiome

One of the most direct ways to support and enhance our microbiome is through the intake of probiotics. Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that benefit our health, especially our digestive system. They are often called ‘good’ or ‘friendly’ bacteria because they help keep our gut healthy.

When we take antibiotics or our diet is not optimal, some beneficial bacteria in our gut can be wiped out. Probiotics can help replenish these beneficial bacteria. They can also balance the good and bad bacteria to keep our body working as it should.

Incorporating probiotics into our daily regimen can support our microbiome by:

  1. Aiding Digestion: Probiotics can help break down food, absorb nutrients, and fight off ‘unfriendly’ organisms that might cause diarrhea.
  2. Boosting Immunity: The gut influences a significant portion of our immune system. Probiotics can enhance the production of specific antibodies, increasing our defense against harmful pathogens.
  3. Mental Health Benefits: As mentioned in the gut-brain connection, probiotics can produce neurotransmitters and modulate neuroinflammation, influencing our mood and mental well-being.
  4. Reducing Inflammation: Chronic inflammation can lead to numerous health issues. Probiotics can suppress the inflammatory responses in the body.

The Unicity Feel Great System: A Partner for Your Microbiome

While exercise and fasting are solid foundations for microbiome health, proper nutrition is indispensable. That’s where the Unicity Feel Great system comes into the picture. Designed to enhance overall health, it can be particularly effective in fostering a flourishing microbiome.

  1. Tailored Nutrition: The Unicity system offers individualized nutrition, ensuring your microbiome gets precisely what it needs.
  2. Support During Fasting: If you’re embracing fasting to better your microbiome health, the Unicity system can be a boon. It offers balanced nutrition to nourish your body and its microbial inhabitants.
  3. Holistic Health Approach: Beyond the microbiome, the Unicity system prioritizes overall well-being, ensuring every aspect of your health is addressed.


In our quest for health, it’s crucial to remember that we’re not just nurturing ourselves but also trillions of tiny allies. A vibrant microbiome can be the cornerstone of robust health, influencing everything from digestion and immunity to our mood and mental state.

We can support our microbial inhabitants by embracing practices like exercise and fasting. Further, we can offer them the nourishment they need to thrive with tools like the Unicity Feel Great system.

By taking care of our microbiome, we’re setting the stage for a life brimming with health, vitality, and joy. So, let’s embark on this journey together, with these tiny wonders as our companions, and unlock the secret to a life where we truly feel great.
