Food for Thought: Brain, Gut, Microbes, Diet
Joseph Weiss, MD
The brain–gut–microbiome axis is revolutionizing our understanding of mental and physical health and wellness. The microbiome is the term used to describe the trillions of microbial organisms that normally live within and on our body. Science has revealed that humans are actually a super-organism and the microbiome is in continuous communication with the body. The microbiome and diet are intimately interconnected with human health and wellness. Fitness professionals will want to be up to date in understanding this remarkable advance, as well as the role of diet, prebiotics and probiotics.
