Fruit intake improves gut microbial diversity

How often do we discover what our elders would have taught us?

Variety and quantity of fruit (not just bananas!) makes a difference to your gut microbiome.

As a child, fruit came in seasons for example stone fruit in summer, oranges and mandarins early winter.

Only for a short time and not all year round.

While fruit is important for gut microbial diversity, too much – often quoted as more than 2 pieces a day, can be too much for people trying to lose weight. Personalised, individualised medicine – what is right for you?
