HEALTHY AS A DOG
Here’s an all-natural probiotic: your pet. Our animal friends have their own inherent bacteria, so being in contact with them exposes us to types that we might not otherwise encounter (this goes for dogs especially, since roaming around outside allows them to collect more of the good stuff) and that can lead to health benefits for you. Taking in new kinds of bacteria stimulates our immune systems, which keep our microbiomes functioning properly. The biggest perks? Easing allergies, respiratory issues and even anxiety. So try to cut Max some slack when he rolls in from the muddy garden.
