What are the twins known for?

The twins are best known for their website The Gut Stuff and being advocates for stomach wellness.

It all started in 2015 when they took part in a study to have their microbiomes analysed – being among the first people in the UK to do so.

The results showed that the bacteria in each of their guts was only 30% the same which, despite being identical in ever other way, was the same as strangers.

Speaking to The Telegraph, Lisa said: “As a twin, you grow up thinking everything about you is exactly the same.

“So at first, we were just delighted to find out there was something different about us.”

She added: “We’ll never know exactly why our microbiomes were so different, but they think it could have been caused by a course of antibiotics that I was on when we were three or four."

That 2015 test proved a turning point for the sisters:

Lisa told the outlet: “We met gastroenterologists, immunologists and more, and realised that gut bacteria is responsible for so much more than just the digestion of food.

“We just could not believe how many health issues it was linked to. We thought: how can we shout this from the roof tops?”
