Did you know there are around 40 trillion bacteria in your body? Most of these live in your intestines. Collectively, we call them gut microbiota.

The term gut microbiome refers to the microorganisms living in your intestines. Every person has between 300 and 500 different species of bacteria in the digestive tract.

Some of them are harmful, but many of them are incredibly beneficial. Some bacteria are even necessary to a healthy body.

Do you know the importance of gut bacteria to your overall health? In this documentary, Prof. Simon Carding, describes our current understanding of the human gut and its relationship with its human host.

He also talks about the possibility of gut microbes influencing our body. When, what, and how often we eat can have a big impact on our health.
