The trillions of bacteria, viruses and
fungi that live in the intestinal tract (i.e. the gut microbiome) have an
effect on one’s overall feeling of health and well-being. Metabolism, appetite,
and the inflammation that can occur in various bodily systems can all be
influenced by what is going on in the gut. Stony Brook Southampton Hospital’s
Director of Clinical Nutrition, Paula Montagna, RD, MS, CDN, CNSC will discuss
how and what you eat boosts your gut health and positively impacts the immune
system, affects weight, blood sugar, cholesterol, and possibly even mental
health. This is a Long Island Library Programmer’s Association Program hosted
by Mattituck-Laurel Library and sponsored by Stony Brook Southampton Hospital.
