Why is everybody talking about gut microbiota?

28 Jun 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CEST

Research regarding the gut microbiota has exploded and it is one of the hottest emerging health topics.

No longer simply a digestive organ, the gut and its microbiota has now been revealed as having a role in metabolism, immunity and even behaviour. Research has also revealed the dynamic nature of our gut microbiota over the lifespan – with composition changes post-partum and changes influenced by the environment, stress, diet, health status and medication.

But what do we really know and what remains to be explored?
