Gut microbiome, the ecosystem of microorganisms living in gastrointestinal tracts, is increasingly recognized as a key to many aspects of human health. During infancy and early childhood, sequential development of gut microbiome underpins appropriate maturation of immune system and healthy metabolism, and is linked to neurocognitive development. Nutrition is essential for the process of establishing a healthy gut microbiome, with essential role of breastfeeding in early months, and the important role of diet diversity in stimulating the maturation of  a diverse gut microbiome.

 

Microbiome Academy is dedicated to providing scientific information and resources on gut microbiome development, how this process is shaped by nutrition, and the implications for health.
