Is there truth to the term, ‘brain food’? This webinar is designed to provide information on the connection between the gut microbiome and human behavior. Specifically, how a person eats influences his/her gut microbiome enough to influence development and/or symptoms of depression, anxiety, ADHD, and/or ASD. Additionally, this webinar will focus on the nutritional changes that can improve the microbiome and subsequently improve behaviors/mental health.
