The GUT CLUB

Neurooptimization to live your best life isn't done the brain alone. Its also in your gut microbiome.

New Comment paper:
"Microbiome-based treatments aimed at influencing neurological responses, such as neurotransmitter release, stress responses, and neurological development, could be designed in accordance with an individual’s genetic risk for a given disease. As it remains challenging to correct genetic predispositions, the correction of altered microbiomes appears to be a more viable approach toward novel therapeutics for neurologic disorders."

Note: How can they claim the newborn gut is sterile?
