Can you tell the difference between food sensitivity and food intolerance? Both are garnering increasing media attention that can sometimes cause confusion, with inaccurate information possibly leading to self-diagnosis and unnecessary dietary restrictions. To shed some light on the topic, we have created an infographic highlighting the differences between the two conditions. Have a look at our new Gut Microbiota…

Understanding the interaction between brain, gut and microbiome is the goal of John Cryan's work as Principal Investigator at the APC Microbiome Institute in Cork, Ireland. In the talk he gave at TEDxHa'pennyBridge, held in Dublin in June 2017, Prof. Cryan looked into this connection and its influence over psychiatric and immune-related disorders.

With their distinctive perspective on design, color and storytelling, Kurzgesagt (German for “in a nutshell“) shows the different functions of gut bacteria and their role in our overall health. From helping digest food to protecting our immune system, our gut microbes not only keep our guts healthy, but could also possibly influence what kinds of foods we crave.

Surf the web and you’ll find many claims about probiotics, but many times what’s said isn’t based on fact. Sometimes this is because the author just doesn’t know the science. Sometimes it seems to be intentional, to promote some aspect of one product as better than other products. The International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics (ISAPP) created an infographic…

According to many scientific studies, having a balanced gut microbiota is essential for gut health. Just like a big city, where the whole community works together to make the place work, our gut is populated by trillions of microbes that help us live a healthy life. “We have a lot of bacteria in our body and the reason they are…
