Felicia says, “your gut has 100 trillion bacteria thriving in it, feeding off what we consume. Our microbiota or “forgotten organ” plays a critical role in our health outcomes. The foods you eat can help transform your microbiota. Learn how to reset your gut with nutrition, specifically the difference between pro- and prebiotics.”
