The Gut Stuff: An Empowering Guide to Your Gut and Its Microbes
Author Lisa MacFarlane and Alana Macfarlane
Demystifying the buzz words of gut health and microbiome, this book explains clearly the importance of fiber in our diets.
Most people now know just how important the gut is to our health and wellbeing, including its impact on our digestive and immune systems and on diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and even mental health, but so much of the information out there is hard to understand or doesn't offer realistic solutions. Alana and Lisa Macfarlane have spent the past few years interviewing top-notch gut pros: scientists, academics, chefs and foodies to get the real scoop and science behind what we eat.
The book offers practical and achievable advice in a fun and accessible way and explains what gut health is and why it is so relevant today. The science behind mind and body and how they are linked, including the gut's effect on sleep, anxiety, immunity, and skin are covered, along with practical advice on what can be done to improve gut health.
About The Author
Lisa & Alana Macfarlane (The Mac Twins) started The Gut Stuff in 2017. As identical twins they became the "chief guinea pigs" for the British Gut research project where they discovered that despite having 100% the same DNA their guts have only 40% the same microbiota, which could explain why their bodies behave so differently. They made it their mission to bring the exciting information they were learning to the masses. Since then they have made www.thegutstuff.com the global millennial leader in the area of gut health. The Mac Twins profile has increased rapidly through their DJ'ing and presenting, and they have performed all over the world for Diet Coke, Armani and MAC Cosmetics
