It Takes Guts reveals cutting edge research that is turning conventional medical wisdom on its head. We have always thought of bacteria as our enemy. But we now know that some bacteria are our allies. And that radical idea is being tested by researchers, sometimes even using their own family members as guinea pigs, in labs and in homes across Europe and North America. In this film, director Leora Eisen looks into how this impacts our gut microbiome, why some foods make us fat, while others nourish healthy bacteria. A documentary that gives new meaning to trust your "gut feeling".
