Strong microbiome - healthy body
Trillions of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses and fungi live in our bodies and on our skin, collectively known as the microbiome. The microbiome is an independent ecosystem that starts at birth when the newborn comes into contact with the first microorganisms. His diet and lifestyle then determine how his microbiome develops.
Most microorganisms live in the gastrointestinal tract and were previously referred to as intestinal flora because they were thought to be plants. Today these smallest creatures are called the microbiome.
What does the gut microbiome do??
It helps the body break down food, absorb nutrients from it, and produce important vitamins like B12 and K. It also helps the immune system fight off pathogens and even influences mood and behavior.
Research findings on the microbiome
Microbiome research is still in its infancy, but growing rapidly around the world. The amazing results of this young branch of research show how extensive the role is that the microbiome plays in all areas of our body and its metabolic processes.
For example, breast milk has a significant influence on the structure of the microbiome in an infant. Lactobacilli, such as Lactobacillus fermentum and reuteri, play an important role here. Studies have found that giving lactobacilli as a diet or as a dietary supplement can help babies build their microbiome and immune system. They are better protected against diarrhoea, colic, respiratory diseases and skin allergies. If pregnant women take these probiotics before the birth, this intake also helps the child, as another study shows.
Several studies indicate that imbalances in the microbiome can lead to a range of health problems, from obesity to mental health problems. It was shown, for example, that diseases such as asthma, rheumatism and depression can improve through the regular administration of probiotics with lactobacilli and bifidobacteria.

This is how you strengthen your microbiome
High hygiene standards and processed foods high in fat and sugar have meant that part of the microbiome has been left behind. It is all the more important to nurture and care for your own microbiome.
For example, whole foods can provide the nutrients and fiber that promote the growth and diversity of gut bacteria. Fermented foods in particular, such as sauerkraut and yoghurt, help to stimulate digestion and support the immune system. Physical activities also promote the microbiome.
Stress and lack of sleep, on the other hand, have a negative effect on the microbiome, as studies show that they change the balance of intestinal bacteria.
Probiotics support your microbiome
One easy way to boost your microbiome is to take probiotics. Incidentally, they are among the most popular dietary supplements in the world.
Our Sagitta Pur series offers you a selection of effective solutions that you can use individually or together. It is important that you take the selected products over a longer period of time, at least four weeks, in order to achieve noticeable success.
The cold season demands a lot from the immune system. If you strengthen it in a targeted manner in the fall, it will be less vulnerable in the winter. But the many pathogens that it has to deal with during this time can weaken your good bacteria and thus your immune system. That's why it makes sense to get your immune system really strong again in spring.
We therefore recommend a four-week cure with the Sagitta Pur series before and after the cold season: Pur Ferment Juice in the morning, Pur 4+ during the day and the Pur Family Probiotic in the evening. So you are on the safe side and know that your good bacteria ensure that your intestines are kept healthy and your immune system is strengthened.
Please note: Only the Sagitta Pur Family 4+ and the Sagitta Pur Family Probiotic are recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding women. Sagitta Pur Ferment Juice contains herbs that are not suitable for pregnant and breastfeeding women.
