Professor Stig Bengmark spent more than 30 years in his profession as a surgeon, including 20 years as Chief of Surgery at Lund University Hospital and Professor of Surgery at Lund University. During Stig’s time as a surgeon, a mistake occurred at his clinic, which unexpectedly gave him a completely new perspective. He concluded that bacteria in the gut seemed to have a greater impact on health than previously thought. From that day forward, Stig focused on researching the intestinal flora, which over time led to the research preparation Synbiotic2000, and continued research on the connection between lifestyle, intestinal flora and diseases.

Stig’s life mission eventually became, to spread his knowledge and give more people the chance to influence their health. He has accomplished this through his book Choose Health! (2018) and the 12 commandments, among other things. The twelve commandments for optimal health, is a compilation of his best advice for taking care of the intestinal flora and living a healthier life!
