Now, it is believed that it not only does not harm us, it actually has a function to help us. It can act as a barrier to harmful bacteria, and it has been shown to help with our digestion.

It can have other benefits as well. It can help the body in absorbing important nutrients and vitamins. It also has the ability in some cases of helping cell growth. It can be beneficial to those who suffer with certain allergies.
