About Gut Microbiome
Our gut microbiome is a diverse community of microorganisms of which includes bacteria, fungi, viruses, pathogens and food particles, all of which inhabit our gastrointestinal tract. These microorganisms play a crucial role in various physiological processes, including digestion, metabolism, protection against pathogens as well as hormone, immune and energy regulation.

Our gut microbiome can be influenced by many factors such as diet, genetics, lifestyle and our environmental exposures. Understanding how we as humans can achieve microbiome balance can contribute towards our overall health and wellbeing and longevity.

These tend to come and go over time, and can last for days, weeks or months at a time. It’s usually a lifelong problem. It can be very frustrating to live with and can have a big impact on your everyday life.
