Synopsis of the course

In recent years, the interest in researching the complex interaction between the human gut microbiota and our health has not stopped. Moreover, healthcare professionals have begun wondering if the initial establishment of the gut microbiota plays any role in our adult life. How is the microbiota formed and developed in infancy? How important is it later in life? In this course, you will learn about which factors influence our microbiota even before we are born, and what the consequences of an immature microbiota are later in adult life. Moreover, do not miss out on the practical recommendations on how to enhance a healthy, mature microbiota in children!Unrestricted grant by Biocodex Microbiota Institute
