Plant based nutrition & gut health

Plants occasionally have an interest in our health, sometimes with the help of bacteria. When it comes to many fruits, nuts, and berries, the plants chose us.

Bright colors, sought-after sweetness, and fatty content attract birds, rodents, bears, humans, and many other animals. Well-protected seeds often pass through digestive tracts and end up disseminated and ready to hatch – coated with a free layer of fertilizer! Nuts are typically stored in the ground by small mammals for the colder months or accidentally dropped by birds. As a result, countless trees owe their existence to a forgetful squirrel or an awkward raven.

Berries have interests in our health....and so do bacteria
