Are you interested in learning about the bacteria that live in your GI tract?
Your microbiome is made up of the trillions of microorganisms that live in your intestinal tract. These microorganisms, mostly bacteria, are involved in functions critical to your health and wellbeing. They play a key role in digesting food you eat and they help absorb and synthesise nutrients.
Many women today take iron supplements. We are interested in finding out if taking iron supplements change the bacteria present in the microbiome.
You may be eligible to participate in this study if you are:
· A female aged between 18-45 years old
· Do not have anaemia and/or an iron deficiency
· Not pregnant or breastfeeding and not currently planning on becoming pregnant
