The gut microbiota – the community of hundreds of trillions of microorganisms living in our digestive system that perform a range of essential functions for our health – is a constant source of new and interesting content. Some months ago, we told you about how the Canadian Digestive Health Foundation was releasing a series of videos about these microscopic “superheroes”.
The complete series has now been released and, in order to continue learning, we’d like to invite you to watch another one of the videos. Entitled “The Game of Microbes”, the video explains why balance and diversity are key to the health of our microbiota. In short, it’s all about how we need to have every member of our “team of superheroes” on board to ensure our gut microbiota can effectively perform its functions.
