Last Chance to Register! Dietary Influences on the Human Gastrointestinal Microbiota | Presented by Presented by Dr. Hannah Holscher, PhD, RD | Wednesday, February 27, 2019, from 2–3 PM EST | Earn 1 CEU Free
The gastrointestinal microbiome is increasingly linked to metabolic health, and there is keen interest in evidence‑based dietary strategies to modulate the microbiome for health benefit. Dietary components, such as fiber, which are resistant to digestion can be fermented by microbes in the gastrointestinal tract. Dietary fibers are heterogeneous and their impact on the microbiome and health status will vary depending on factors including the botanical origin of the fiber and its physicochemical properties, as well as the dosage and the phenotypic responses related to the composition of the individual’s gastrointestinal microbiota.

Much work remains to delineate the interrelationships between the gastrointestinal microbiome and human health; however, it is clear that diet is a contributing factor to these relationships. This webinar will explore the latest research relating to gastrointestinal microbiome and human health and provide RDNs with actionable strategies for counseling patients and clients.

Learning Objectives
After completing this continuing education course, nutrition professionals should be able to:
  1. Identify dietary factors that impact the human gastrointestinal (GI) microbiota.
  2. Compare and contrast how different types of foods, which contain fiber, differentially impact the GI microbiota.
  3. Evaluate the connection between the GI microbiota and health.
