A great read for anyone interested in the enteric system. The author goes through the basics of the gut microbiome and how important it is to our lives. A fun and engaging voice, with great research, clearcut explanations, and unbiased opinion.

Title: Gut: The Inside Story of Our Body’s Most Underrated Organ | Author: Giulia Enders | Rating: 4/5
I learned a ton, starting with saliva is basically filtered blood. Loved the author’s voice, which was witty and amusing, without being forced. She has an engaging tone, and kept me wanting to read, apart from how interesting the topic is.
She provides great resources and the research backing her claims, and mostly provides what I consider a literature analysis of the research, but in a more accessible way.
Overall, a wonderful read for a nonmedical professional who wants to learn more about the gut-brain connection, the gut microbiome, and general health.

This reminds me of one I just read, of the same genre, Breath by James Nestor, he does a similar thing in analysing the significance of the breath to the human body. Interesting.
Ooo I’ll have to add that one to my TBR.
I just reviewed it, so check it out. 🙂
