More vegetables, wholegrains and diversity of fats, RD Kate Scarlata’s recipe for a healthy microbiota

In this video proposed by GMFH, we talked to Boston-based registered dietitian Kate Scarlata about how gut microbiota influences our health and our wellbeing. “Irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease even anxiety and depressionhave all been linked to changes in the gut microbiome,” recalls Kate Scarlata. She also explains that most people are not eating enough fiber (food for our gut microbiota).

We really need to encourage people to eat more fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds, and also to look at different healthy types of fats,” she continues. Scarlata ends by explaining what FODMAPs are and how they are beneficial for our health.

A didactic interview recorded during the 8th Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit in March 2019, that we invite you to share with your friends, your family, and even your dietitian.
