Gut health: A key to unlocking better health and wellbeing
Watch a recording of this event on our YouTube channel here.
Gut health is fast becoming one of the most important factors in healthy aging, and could stave off chronic diseases such as cancer, Type 2 diabetes, and chronic inflammatory bowel disease. Gut health has even been linked to mental health and neurological conditions like schizophrenia and dementia. Hear about the latest research on the ways the millions of microbes that live in the digestive tract affect our body and our mind, and how a healthy lifestyle can sustain gut health and prevent chronic disease.
