Can your diet make you smarter or hinder your cognitive abilities? How does the microbiome influence your mood and mental well-being? Could your gut flora be the key to resilience against stress?

Explore the profound impact of our gut microbiome—the diverse ecosystem of microorganisms residing in our digestive tract—on our brain and mental well-being in our upcoming masterclass. 

The masterclass will be led by Iris Sommer, a distinguished neuroscientist and psychiatrist at the University Medical Center Groningen. Iris will delve into the latest research unraveling the connections between our gut flora, immune system, and brain.

In this session you will learn:

  • – Insights into the gut-brain connection
  • – What is the connection between the gut and development of psychiatric and neurological disorders
  • – Nutritional strategies to enhance stress resistance
