A word from our editor, plus sub­scribe to­day for your chance to WIN prizes!

I’m not much of a TV sports fan, yet when­ever the Olympics roll around I’m glued to the screen, awed by these ath­letes at the height of their phys­i­cal pow­ers. In the lead-up to the Rio Olympics, you may have no­ticed a surge in advertisin­g us­ing peo­ple leap­ing and jump­ing with un­bri­dled bursts of en­ergy. Have you ever thought, “What I’d give for some of that vi­tal­ity!?” (With­out the harsh 5am train­ing ses­sions!)

Win­ter is a time when many of us tend to feel slug­gish and lack­ing in vi­tal­ity. We’re jug­gling work, fam­ily and a crowded sched­ule of com­mit­ments, and it’s all-too-com­mon to feel tired all the time. So this month, our di­eti­tian, Brooke Long­field, takes us through her sim­ple 6-step guide to get­ting our mojo back. See how on p38.

If you have heard of the hu­man mi­cro­biome, you will know that this pi­o­neer­ing edge of science is now un­cov­er­ing some re­mark­able con­nec­tions be­tween the bac­te­ria that live in our gut and many as­pects of our health, and even our per­son­al­ity. What we now know is that hav­ing a widely di­verse va­ri­ety of bac­te­ria is key — and the health­ier your diet, the more likely you are to have a thriv­ing gut mi­cro­biome. Find out more about this fas­ci­nat­ing area of health and nu­tri­tion on p44.

En­joy! An­drea Du­vall, Editor
