Ten foods to make your tummy happy
As well as digesting your food, the gut plays a vital role in your health and happiness.
It also hosts more than 100 trillion bacteria that work very hard. They turn undigested food into hormones, enzymes, chemicals and vitamins that influence our weight, digestion, mood and even how much pain we feel.
They also protect us from foreign invaders and play a huge role in our immune system. Recent research shows there is a two-way relationship between our diet and gut bacteria.
What you eat affects the types of bacteria in your gut so here are 10 foods to help your good bugs flourish.
