Gut Health and Probiotics Paperback Add to Basket £15.99

A simplified explanation of probiotics and what they can do for and to the human body is long overdue. Despite the fact that people use the term probiotics a lot in the media as well as in everyday life there appears to be some confusion as to whether probiotics are something that occurs naturally in a healthy human gut or ‘biome’, something that is added to your yogurt or whether it’s simply a pot of pills that you need to take when you’re ill.

Gut Health and Probiotics will take readers on a quest to understand what both probiotics and prebiotics can do for their long term gut health and how this might affect a broad range of body systems from skin health to mental health.

Along the way readers will discover how useful probiotics are in both preventing and curing specific ailments, as Jenny explains just how simple it is to feel great from the inside-out.

This is a great book to help with dealing with tummy problems! I have IBS and really found this helpful!

Gut Health and Probiotics is an extremely informative book covering all aspects of probiotics and gut health. I found it easier to read this book in small chunks, as there is so much to learn and understand. The book explains the links between probiotics and things such as skin health, weight, food sensitivities and the functioning of the brain. It was fascinating to learn about the influences of the method of your birth and early diet, and to have guidelines about how to increase and protect the probiotics in your body. A very interesting, thought provoking read.

Jenny Tschiesche’s book on the human gut is brilliant – if, like me, you attended a school that allowed you to drop science in favour of languages, you will find it fascinating and absorbing, a really good comprehensive explanation of the human gut and how it operates on the food we feed it. Plenty of brilliant illustrations, but the text is what matters, and it really does educate and inform. Superb.

Some good information on gut health. A little more scientific than I would like. I need easy to read instructions that I can implement.

I was looking for a book to give me the fundamentals of gut health and I am happy to say this book delivered. It was engaging, informative and easy to read. I came away with lots of new knowledge and tips for improving my health. I would recommend this book for anyone wanting to become better informed in this area.

This is an informational book aimed at the average person, it's not a medical/technical manual, there is little technical information ('biochemical' appears only 2 times in the text), and as such, it does a pretty good job of covering the essential information without being overly academic or 'scary'.

This is an important book for maintaining the health of your digestive tract. After losing my entire family to stomach cancers I have launched a personal study on digestive health. I found this book to be a important body of work that I highly recommend to everyone who is seeking better health.

**** Useful read on a very current topic

This was a very informative and up to date read on a currently popular topic. The concepts of a healthy gut, dysbiosis and the benefits probiotics (and probiotics) were well explained. These were linked to a wide range of common and not so common health complaints and diagnoses, from a wide range skin conditions to mental health.

A good book for anyone interested in the role of food and toxins on the gut in human health.

I was completely impressed with this comprehensive look at gut health, making it a must read for those with digestive issues and those looking to maintain a healthy gut.

A good book for anyone interested in the role of food and toxins on the gut in human health. Although there were scientific words I don’t think it would be difficult for a wide audience to understand.

NetGalley, reviewed by Tina Milledge

If it is a subject that interests you (or you have issues) this should make an interesting read. There is plenty of food for thought as well as for feeding the biome.

Always wanted to know a bit more about gut health generally and this book answered most of my questions. Gut health is so important to our overall health and wellbeing and I learnt a lot. Very informative, great read.

Plenty of great information for those that want to learn more about their gut health and how to improve it. With the wealth of information out there at the moment on the micro-biome this is a good way to cut through the sensationalism and get right to the facts. There is a lot of detailed information on when to use prebiotics and probiotics, how to use them for specific issues, and how to get them from your food as well as supplements. A good guide if you have gut problems or just want to be healthier.
