Plants & Gut Health

The Lempert Report
August 09, 2023

Nestle has decided that they want to learn more about our microbiome and the reason for that is gut health, certainly over the past few years when we've talked a lot about gut health is so important for human health. It protects us from pathogens, contributes to our immune system development, helps food digestion.

Nestle is the world's largest food company and I've been to their research facility and they have a lot of really smart people there and the fact that now what they found, it was actually not Nestle's research but it was research presented at the European Congress on obesity in June that the composition volume of gut bacteria in toddlers at three and a half years old can predict their body mass index at age five, and it uncovers individuals who are prone to adult obesity in early childhood. So I give so much credit for Nestle getting into this.
