we are meta

We are all meta. So let’s put it this way, we’re a metaorganism. This scientific concept, the so-called metaorganism concept, defines “the animal or plant organism and the bacteria associated with it as a unit that determines the function and development of living beings beyond the boundaries of individuals and species.“1

What is the advantage of our brain-intestine-skin concept?

Every living being has a complex ecosystem on the body surfaces. This consists of a myriad of bacteria (skin, intestines, oral cavity), the so-called microbiome. This microbiome is closely connected to important organ systems such as B. the gut, the skin and even the brain on a cellular and molecular level.2
This means that we and our bacteria form a unit and we could not survive without our bacteria.
Science now knows that our microbiome, i.e. our own bacterial colony, protects us and our body. It protects us from harmful factors such as B. dangerous bacteria or viruses, but also harmful environmental influences.2

The natural balance

Recent scientific research shows that many health problems and diseases can have a common cause: the disruption of the natural balance of organisms and the bacterial communities that colonize them.3

If humans and bacteria no longer work together, the disturbances in the metaorganism can cause serious health problems and diseases.

We also all know about the importance of the immune system. According to many researchers, the development of the immune system in our first 1-2 years of life takes place almost exclusively in the intestine.

If the intestinal flora is intact, the mucous membrane can keep harmful substances and pathogens away and let the important valuable substances in: therefore, many studies show that up to 70% of the immune system is located in the intestine.4

The importance of the gut microbiome

Our gut microbiome not only influences our immune system, but is also connected to our brain via the gut-brain axis.5
On the one hand via the autonomic nervous system (especially via the vagus nerve) and on the other hand via the blood route.

Our gut microbiome not only influences our immune system, but is also connected to our brain via the gut-brain axis.5 [sup, wpml_linebreak] On the one hand via the autonomic nervous system (especially via the vagus nerve) and on the other hand via the blood route. Poor diet, lack of exercise, lack of fiber, antibiotics and stress lead to a disturbed gut microbiome. This affects our brain, our skin, our sleep and also our weight.6

According to studies, the intestinal microbiome also decides how much energy and thus calories are obtained from food. The more energy-yielding bacteria there are in the gut, the more calories the body absorbs. This also explains why two people eating the exact same foods can develop different weights. 7

Our protective coat:
The skin

Another important and at the same time largest organ system is directly connected to the intestine and the brain: our skin.

Countless bacteria live on the skin. They form the skin microbiome, which is our effective protective coat and protects us from pathogens.

However, if the balance in the skin microbiome is disturbed, e.g. B. unhealthy lifestyle or excessive care, unwanted intruders can trigger skin diseases. Symbol „Von der Community überprüft“ But a disturbed intestinal flora can also lead to skin changes. Because the two microbiomes are also closely linked here.8

So it can be said that if you suffer from recurring skin problems, your skin microbiome is most likely out of balance.

All BalanzRock® products are ideally matched to each other and ensure a better balance in your meta-organism.

From these findings we have developed our BalanzRock concept to support our metaorganism.

Our products support the important interaction of the well-known brain-gut-skin axis, not only on a visible level, but above all on the microbiome level.
