In recent years, our gut has been nicknamed as ‘the second brain’ and there are good reasons for it. We each host about 2kg worth of microbiota in our gut and they produce chemicals, such as neurotransmitters which influence our mood, our behaviour and even our cravings. So, how exactly do they send you the ‘pizza order’ from down there? We’ll find out the ways they communicate to us and how we could become better friends.
