In today’s interview I get to speak with Professor of Genetic Epidemiology and Director of the TwinsUK Registry, Tim Spector (MD), on how our own gut microbiome affects our response to different diets.
#gutbacteria #genetics #biohackerslab
Tim is very passionate about the relationship between our genes, the microbiome and health and nutrition.
Diet and nutrition are a complex issue encompassing numerous factors. How one person responds to a certain food can vary greatly to another, even with closely related individuals.
Tim’s study with identical twins really illustrates this point perfectly and sheds some light on factors that affect our health and how we respond to foods.
In previous interviews we talked about the importance the microbiome has on various aspects of our health. Today, we talk more about what the twin studies have shown and why we should be moving away from generalised advice and focus on personalised nutrition.
If you know someone who is interested in learning more about:
👉What are some of the problems we have in understanding diets
👉Why have the nutritional advice and guidelines we’ve been given failed
👉The importance of the gut microbiome on our nutrition and why it trumps even genetics
👉What other factors influence how we respond to various diets
👉Why how we eat is as important as what we eat
👉Why we need to consider nutrition on an individual basis
👉Advice on probiotics, prebiotics and fasting
👉How the Predict study aims to build a prediction model for personalised nutrition advice
Then this interview is for them.
I really enjoyed this interview with Tim who shares how the latest microbiome research is shaping new developments. It is exciting to think how in the future these new discoveries will make individualised nutrition advice accessible to everyone.
Special thanks to Tim for joining me on the show. Enjoy the episode!
