Looking after your gut health over Christmas and New Year

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:38 pm on 23 December 2020

Many of us will be celebrating Christmas and the New Year with hearty meals and celebratory drinks in the coming days.

As you consider what to pile up on your plate, or pour into your glass, a gut health expert suggests you spare a thought for your microbiome.

Claus Christophersen is a senior lecturer in nutrition at Edith Cowan University in Perth and tells us what we can do to keep our gut bacteria in balance over the holidays.
