Mikki speaks to Dr Sara Campbell about exercise, the gut and our gut microbiome
This week on the podcast Mikki speaks to Dr Sara Campbell about exercise, the gut and our gut microbiome. We discuss the bi-directional relationship between the gut and our exercise patterns, what sex differences might exist, and the relative usefulness of probiotics and prebiotics for helping optimise our gut health. It’s an exciting time for research in this area, with so much we don’t know. Dr Campbell is an expert in what we DO know.
Dr Sara Campbell is an ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR and the GRADUATE PROGRAM DIRECTOR in KINESIOLOGY AND APPLIED PHYSIOLOGY at Rutgers University, with a specialist research area in metabolism, the gut and the impact of exercise on the gut.
Mikkipedia is an exploration in all things health, well being, fitness, food and nutrition. I sit down with scientists, doctors, professors, practitioners and people who have a wealth of experience and have a conversation that takes a deep dive into their area of expertise. I love translating science into a language that people understand, so while some of the conversations will be pretty in-depth, you will come away with some practical tips that can be instigated into your everyday life. I hope you enjoy the show!
