Gut Health

“Gut health” describes the function and balance of bacteria of the many parts of the gastrointestinal tract.

These bacteria are everywhere, including the skin, mouth, throat, stomach, colon, uterus, ovarian follicles, prostate, lungs, ears and eyes. “You name it, and there are microorganisms nearby,” Dr. Hazan says, adding that research has identified around 10,000 different microbial species in the human body.
