Aging is viewed as a natural and inevitable process, something that happens to all of us and cannot be stopped. But what if we looked at aging completely different – a string of symptoms caused by an underlying issue. 

Even though it might sound crazy there may be a way to cure aging, and it’s thanks to something that already lives inside all of us, our microbiome. 

Our microbiome is a collection of all microbes inside your body. This can include bacteria, fungi, and even viruses. Since the key to a long life is maintaining a healthy microbiome, experts believe if we can hack our microbiomes, we may be able to cure aging, altogether.
