BE AWARE OF:

  • The acquired and innate arms of the immune response over the lifecourse
  • How a ‘leaky gut’ may cause inflammation within the gut and beyond
  • How diet, functional foods or faecal transplants might be used to improve gut health
  • References for appropriate further reading

BE ABLE TO:

  • Consider the context and intervention window when assessing scientific evidence
  • Consider the key role that other organs such as the liver and brain are likely to have in gut health
    and immunity
