The Beat podcast is designed for healthcare professionals only and is brought to you by Nutricia. Gut health and, more specifically, the gut microbiome have received increasing amounts of attention over the last few years. But what exactly is the gut microbiome and why is it so important?  

In episode three of The Beat our host Gill, an NHS midwife and nurse for almost 40 years, is joined remotely by Professor Glenn Gibson. Glenn is Professor of Food Microbiology at the University of Reading, where his research focuses on the gut microbiome; its profound implications for health and disease, and how it can be influenced by the diet. Listen to Professor Glenn share his advice on how clinicians can best support babies' gut health and immune development.
