Nutrition & Probiotics Key for Digestive Health

“Diet is a central issue when it comes to preserving our gastrointestinal health, because by eating and digesting we literally feed our gut microbiota, and thus influence its diversity and composition. If this balance is disturbed, it might result in a number of disorders, including functional bowel disorders, inflammatory bowel diseases and other immune mediated diseases, such as celiac disease and certain allergies…Thus, the maintenance of our gastrointestinal health is to a considerable extent in our own hands.”, said Dr. Francisco Guarner, the head of the Digestive System Research Unit at Hospital General Vall d’Hebron in Barcelona, Spain at The Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit in Miami, March 2014
