In this updated edition of a worldwide bestseller, Giulia Enders reveals the secrets and science of the digestive system?including new research on the connection between the gut and the brain.

For too long, the gut has been the body?s most ignored and least appreciated organ. But it does more than just dirty work; our gut is at the core of who we are. With quirky charm, science star and medical doctor Giulia Enders explains the gut?s magic, answering questions like: Why does acid reflux happen? What?s really up with gluten and lactose intolerance? How does the gut affect obesity and mood? A new section on the brain-gut axis dives into groundbreaking discoveries of psychobiotics ? microbes with psychological effects that can influence conditions like depression and even stress.

Aided with cheerful illustrations by Enders’s sister Jill, this beguiling manifesto will make you finally listen to those butterflies in your stomach: they’re trying to tell you something important.

  • More than 100,000 copies sold of the original edition in North America, and more than 4 million copies have sold world-wide in all languages.
  • There have been many discoveries about the Gut-Brain since 2013 when Enders first wrote Gut (published in 2015). At the time much of the research was on animals, but since there are more than 20 reliable studies involving humans.
  • Enders introduces psychobiotics, a term describing describes microbes that have psychological effects?and which may even be useful in treating conditions like depression and stress, and shows how our gut bacteria affect mood, stress levels, and depression.
  • She also includes basic instructions for producing fermented vegetables - full of good gut bacteria - at home.

Giulia Enders, MD is a resident doctor for Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology and a two-time scholarship winner of the Wilhelm and Else Heraeus Foundation. She lives in Mannheim and Frankfurt, Germany.

"Enders’s wonder at the strange ways of the gut is matched only by her incredulity at the limited public knowledge on the subject." ?The New York Times

"With a great sense of humor and ample enthusiasm, Enders explains everything readers did and didn’t want to know about their innards ... this book defies boring."?Publishers Weekly

"This primer is everything you ever wanted to know about the gut (and then some), chattily and accessibly written in a uniquely Millennial and matter of fact way. An unexpected page turner. ...Her excitement about the subject matter is infectious. The fun yet informative black and white drawings throughout are her sister’s handiwork. Refreshingly devoid of recipes, or any self help-y language." ?Self Magazine

". . . a truly bottoms-up approach to our digestive health, smoothly moving us through the inner workings of our gastrointestinal tract." ?Anish Sheth, MD, author of What’s Your Poo Telling You

"Gut's probe into the human digestive system might be seen as an earnest younger sibling to Gulp, Mary Roach’s 2013 investigation into the same subject. The comparison isn’t meant as a slight; Enders swaps out Roach’s knowing wryness with a kind of puplike enthusiasm for the complex mechanisms that convert food into a body’s energy and waste without our even thinking about it." ?The National Post
