Gut Check

You’ve always had a gut feeling about this, so it’s time for the scientific community to spill its guts on the gut-busting effort to understand an often gut wrenching topic.

Whether you call it the gut-brain axis or the mind body connection, science is finally catching up with what you’ve been able to feel all along. Jessica Wapner helps you digest a new study that takes an important step forward in understanding the relationship of gut bacteria to what we eat and how we feel.
