From one of the world's leading nutrition experts, a simplified explanation of probiotics and what they can do for and to the human body. Despite the fact that people use the term probiotics a lot in the media as well as in everyday life, there appears to be some confusion as to whether probiotics are something that occur naturally in a healthy human gut or "biome," something that is added to your yogurt, or whether it's simply a pot of pills that you need to take when you're ill. Gut Health and Probiotics will take readers on a quest to understand what both probiotics and prebiotics can do for their long term gut health and how this might affect a broad range of body systems from skin health to mental health. Along the way readers will discover how useful probiotics are in both preventing and curing specific ailments, as nutrition educator Jenny Tschiesche explains just how simple it is to feel great from the inside-out.
