FREE Webinar | Boost Your Immunity: Feeling Well in and out of Lockdown | Thursday 26 August, 6pm-7pm

How can you boost your immunity to feel well and help improve health outcomes during these challenging times, and beyond?

Your Gut health can often be at the heart of your health concerns. The gut-immune function connection is quite evolutionary. Intestinal dysbiosis and issues with the microbiome can lead to a range of adverse health issues.

In this webinar, Professor Luis Vitetta will discuss “The gut microbiota and COVID19” and Dr Tamara Nation will discuss how to “Boost your Immunity: Vices or Virtues

Join us for this webinar and learn how to boost your immunity and help improve health outcomes – not only surviving, but also thriving!

Can modulating the gut microbiota improve infection outcomes? Disease severity is likely due to not only viral infection but also host immune responses. The coronavirus disease (COVID-19), caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARSCoV2) affects numerous organs. Separately from being a respiratory illness, the disease can also affect the cardiovascular and digestive systems.

There is mounting evidence that gut microorganisms are linked with inflammatory diseases within and beyond the intestines. it is plausible to adopt an understanding that the intestinal microbiota and their metabolites could play a significant role in improving SARS-CoV-2 infection outcomes.
