IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™…molecular biologist and biochemist Colleen Cutcliffe, Ph.D., returns to the show with brand new science about your gut. She’s a regular guest because she and her team at Pendulum continue to uncover innovative ways to improve your gut health, your metabolism, your immune system, how your brain works and how long you live.

This time, Akkermansia’s back in the spotlight, with more than 300 new studies showing connections to weight, metabolism and immunity. A unique and novel probiotic strain (species of bacteria) naturally found in your gastrointestinal tract, Akkermansia muciniphila, directly interacts with your gut lining and helps regulate the mucus lining in your gut. Now, there’s growing evidence showing Akkermansia to be a keystone bacterial strain.

This conversation dives into the latest research and what it means for you. You’ll learn how to apply this new knowledge and how to boost Akkermansia in your gut.
