Microbiota geniale. Curare l'intestino per guarire la mente

(The Brilliant Microbiota. Treating the Intestine in Order to Treat the Mind)

Antonio Vallardi Editore, June 2023, pp.176

Written by the scientist considered one of the top international experts in microbiota, this book outlines the way avant-garde research on microbiota is revolutionising the prevention and treatment of mood swings, eating disorders, degenerative illnesses and neurological problems.

World-famous scientist Maria Rescigno explains clearly how the intestine-brain connection is regulated by microbiota: she guides us through the latest discoveries and possible future developments and teaches us to “modulate” microbiota – with the help of specific probiotics and postbiotics, bacterial metabolites, fermented foods and microbiota transplants – in order to protect and rebuild a healthy intestinal barrier, and thereby prevent and treat disorders linked to its imbalances.
