#37: Eat your Gut Healthy with Dr Megan Rossi

28 Oct 2019

My guest today is Dr Megan Rossi -  who is back on The Doctor’s Kitchen Podcast for a second instalment!  Dr Megan has been on the show before, talking all things related to the gut and fibre. I’d recommend you listen to that episode from the very first season of podcasts I recorded 2 years ago - and I’ve linked this here below for you.

Dr Megan Rossi, The Gut Health Doctor, is a Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist with an award-winning PHD in gut health. A leading Research Fellow at King’s College London, Dr Rossi is currently investigating nutrition-based therapies in gut health, including pre-and probiotics, dietary fibres, the low-FODMAP diet and food additives,

As well as leading The Gut Health Clinic. Dr Rossi works with leading companies to promote better gut health and create new menus, including Leon Restaurants. Eat Yourself Healthy is her first book.

You’ll find the recipe video that I made with Dr Megan, and our super interesting conversation - on my youtube channel go check it out!

SUMMARY

In the book I do give a little bit of a probiotic description, highlighting where the evidence has been.  You would then go - so there has been some evidence, what sorts of probiotics have shown a benefit - you identify the type of probiotic which we call the strain.  Then, the other thing you need to think about - what dose did they give to have that benefit?  Then, what duration -  how long do I need to take this before I start to see a benefit? And also how you should take it - do you take it on an empty stomach, or with food etc.  And what I recommend - and Ive given this description in the book - is reflecting the clinical trial, almost repeating them, as its these trials that have shown the evidence.
