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?
This free webinar hosted by the British Nutrition Foundation (BNF) aims to increase our understanding of the gut-brain axis and the evidence for the role of gut microbiota in metabolic health and immunity.
