RFR 237: Mapping Your Gut Microbiome with Kirsty Wirth
In episode 237 of The Real Food Reel we are joined by Kirsty Wirth from Kultured Wellness to discuss mapping your gut microbiome. We explore the technology we have had access to, to date, and its limitations including culturing, PCR and 16s RNA. We then discuss the newest technology, shot-gun metagenomic sequencing and how this provides much greater functional insight and therefore, clinical relevance. We then dive deeper into Microba’s insight report and the importance of microbiome metabolites for optimal digestive, metabolic and nervous system health.
