Believe it or not, you are more microbe than human. Microbes outnumber your human cells by 10 to 1 and the genes encoded by these microbes outnumber their human host’s genes by more than 100 times – this is called your gut microbiome.
The human gut microbiome and its role in both health and disease has been the subject of extensive research, establishing its involvement in human metabolism, nutrition, physiology, and immune function.
A healthy functioning gut microbiome helps to digest your food and absorb nutrients, regulates appetite, is fundamental to reaching and maintaining a healthy weight, regulates your immune system, mood and sleep. Research shows that a poor functioning gut microbiome is linked to many chronic health conditions.
The stronger, more diverse your inner ecosystem – your gut microbiome – the healthier you are. Creating a healthy gut microbiome has been shown to reverse chronic health conditions.
Wine served at 6.15pm. The talk runs 6.30-7.30pm followed by 30 minutes of mingling.
