Compelling evidence is building that probiotics, as proxies of the microbiome, are similarly capable of affecting many parts of physiology. The positive effects of probiotics on immune and intestinal health are now established and some mechanisms are clear. In this lecture, Dr. Plummer will present (recent or up-to-date) evidence on intestinal disparities, including IBS, intestinal permeability, overgrowth of unfavorable bacteria, and immune system support.
Remarkably, unlike any other nutrient group, probiotics appear to have very wide physiological effects. This lecture will concentrate on the emerging evidence for the effects of probiotics on cognitive function, mood and the aging brain; metabolic health (including weight management, glucose and cholesterol metabolism); and physical performance. Dr. Plummer will present evidence that some probiotics appear to be able to exert most, if not all, of these benefits simultaneously – providing a solid argument that these probiotics should be considered an essential everyday dietary supplement for everyone.
- Up-to-date evidence for benefits of probiotic use in many aspects of daily practice
- Evidence for use of specific probiotics in aspects of health previously considered beyond the scope of probiotic intervention
- A greater awareness of how to select a probiotic from the hundreds currently available
We are very pleased to offer you a complimentary dinner buffet.
