Summary

We harbor roughly the same number of microbes as we have cells. This complex ecosystem is crucial to our health, affecting many processes including immunity, child development, and bone density regulation. Research in this area has exploded, and in this audiobook, we highlight some of the most exciting work on how the microbiome develops, its influence on brain and behavior, and implications in both contributing to and treating various disorders.

Good book for general information about the topic

Interesting review of the research around macro biome, not a lot on how to replenish it naturally…. Good for foundations

Awful reading

Was really interested to hear the content but too distracted by narrator. Sounds like it is computer read. Very off putting.
