What’s something we all do a lot, but almost never talk about?

Poo has to be up pretty high on the ‘taboo topics for conversation’ list.
It’s smelly, it can come at embarrassing times (first date, anyone?), and know one really wants to know about it…

But, understanding your poo is one of the easiest ways to recognise if your gut health is ‘as it should be’.


In this newsletter, you can:

  • Read an article by nutritionist Clare Carrick discussing what ‘normal’ is, whether your rainbow poos should alarm you, the Bristol stool chart, and how your poo might be a window into the soul of your gut microbiome.
     
  • A research summary written by Dr Fathalla Ali looking at the phases of development of the gut microbiome in babies and children.
     
  • Watch a quick snippet from our chat with Paediatreic Immunobiologist Dr Steven Leach, where he explains why we want more ‘good’ bacteria, the role inflammation plays in dysbiosis, and what happens when dysbiosis occurs.
