The microbiome and gut health

What we do know is that the microbiome is involved in fundamental metabolic, nutritional and immune system functions. That’s why it is so important to protect the microbiome and support its continued healthy balance.1Bull MJ and Plummer NT. The human gut microbiome in health and disease. Integr Med 2014;13(6):17-22.
