Gut Health

Understanding gut bacteria

The health of the gut is vital for it to perform its function of digesting and absorbing food. Another important gut function is protecting the body from illness and infection.  Impairment of the gastrointestinal barrier or disruption of the commensal bacteria increases the risk of gut-related infections but also extra-intestinal infections, as well as immune-mediated and metabolic disorders.

This section explores the human gastrointestinal tract, the gut microbiota, and the role of probiotics and prebiotics in the body.
