AN INTRODUCTION TO JORDAN HAWORTH:

Jordan is a clinical physiologist specializing in gastrointestinal health and is dedicated to helping people with digestive disorders. 

He regularly carries out scientific research and has presented at international conferences.

Jordan’s particular interest is the gut microbiome and its role in overall health, as well as the relationships between diet, physiology, and gut bacteria. 

In the episode, Jordan shares whether probiotics in pill form are better than fermented foods, what research says about artificial sweeteners (like those in diet soda!) and microbiome health, his thoughts on following a “gluten-free” diet for optimal gut bacteria…and more!
