We are what we digest and absorb
Gut & Microbiome
Effective digestion and absorption are important for optimal health, while disturbance in these functions can result in chronic gut symptoms, nutrient deficiency, as well as health effects beyond the gut. This workshop explores how suboptimal digestion and absorption might contribute to chronic ill health, and how to optimise health and wellness with functional strategies.
We will discuss the role of digestion as gatekeeper and upstream modulator, and functional approaches to improve digestion as well as overall gastrointestinal function and gut health.
We will discuss reasons why nutrient absorption can be suboptimal despite a well-balanced diet, and how food choice and medications can affect absorption.
We will illustrate the health effects of suboptimal absorption and digestion using the condition of Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) as an example, and functional nutritional solutions.
We will demonstrate digestives, calmatives and other functional recipes that supports gastrointestinal health and overall wellness, as well as healthy gut friendly snacks.
