Gut health and eczema
There is increased understanding of how diet, lifestyle and other environmental factors can alter the composition of the human gut microbiome and its metabolic activity, which impacts human health. Human studies have examined the link between having a microbiome with a diverse range of gut bacteria and better health. These studies have shown that many people have a depleted range of gut bacteria due to a poor diet and lifestyle, and this negatively impacts their health. Having a diverse range of beneficial bacteria helps us to digest and absorb nutrients, synthesise nutrients and messenger molecules, and boost our immune system and protect against carcinogens and other disease-causing organisms.
