Health Improvement Program

The health benefits of a diet high in dietary fiber are well established. Studies show eating fiber results in a reduced incidence of cardiovascular disease, cancer, inflammation, diabetes and obesity. Why is the non-digestible part of our diet so beneficial to our health? One reason is that our intestinal microbiota uses fiber as its primary fuel and nourishment. By choosing foods high in fiber, we have the potential to modify the gut microbiome, and our health in a positive way. Join Dr. Lisa Offringa in this noon hour webinar to learn about the fascinating universe of our intestinal microbiome, learn how to identify high fiber foods and ways to include more fiber into your daily diet.

Instructor: Lisa Offringa, PhD. Research Fellow at Stanford Prevention Research Center, and Lecturer in Integrative Biology at UC Berkeley.
