From happier skin to a happier mood, the benefits of a healthy gut have never been clearer.
The trillions of bacteria living in our gut, called microbiome, hold one of the keys to a well-functioning body and mind – provided we feed them right.
“It’s no wonder our gut has been dubbed our body’s second brain,” says clinical nutritionist Dr. Vincent Candrawinata, aka “Dr. Vincent”.
“Most of these microbes play a vital role in our digestion, immune system, skin health and even regulate our weight and mood.
“A big part of keeping our gut healthy is to make it a healthy environment for these good bacteria to thrive.”
