Gut Microbiota

The microbiome (including microbiota) refers to the good and bad bacteria in your gut. Every human being carries about 1-2 kg of gut microbiota, representing a number of cells that, together, are far bigger than all our other body cells together.

Here we provide the current research in nutrition and food science, exploring the relation between nutrition, the gut microbiome, immune system and human health. Learn more about healthy eating to support a healthy microbiome.
