The Nutrition Science Podcast


Jan 31, 2024

In this episode of the podcast, we are discussing the gut microbiome. The gut and the microbiome have gotten a lot of attention over the last 10 years and for good reason. Our digestive system plays a vital role in our overall health and dysfunctional digestion can lead to a variety of health problems. 

One of the most fascinating aspects of our digestive health is the microbes that live in our gut which refer to as our "gut microbiome". These communities of microbes make a home out of our intestinal tract and are responsible for helping us to digesting and absorbing nutrients from our food food and they also synthesize some nutrients and neurotransmitters, help to regulate our immune system and more. 

Bottom line these little bugs living in our gut are very important for our health. In this episode of the show we are going to dive deeper into the topic of the gut microbiome and discuss what the gut microbiome is, how it impacts health, how we can measure it, and how we can support it.
