An article written by the Monash BDI's Dr Eliana Marino featured in Diabetes Management Journal. In this article, Dr Marino explained the relationship between the gut microbiome and diabetes, highlighting preclinical research that has explored the impact of diet on immune regulation and diabetes. According to Dr Marino, a "healthy diet can boost our good microflora and in doing so can modulate the immune and nervous systems for the better. We need to educate society on how to protect our good bacteria with healthy and natural food ingredients".
