“That’s what we do, we grow our mushrooms and we process our mushrooms into extract powders, in China before we bring them over.” — @Real_Mushrooms [0:19:39.9]

“What they don’t tell you is that actually, there’s no mushroom in there at all, it’s actually just mycelium that’s been grown on grain.” — @Real_Mushrooms [0:28:29.8]

“So with an extract, the idea is that you are getting more, all of the benefits of that mushroom that has been put into a smaller volume of material.” — @Real_Mushrooms [0:42:24.4]

In this episode, we spend a lot of time talking about carbs. Are they good? Are they bad? Do you need them at all? Instead of doing an interview, we are diving into an incredible article called "Is Your Low-Carb Diet Wreaking Havoc on Your Gut Microbiome?" The article is written by Eirik Garnas, who is a nutritionist, science writer, personal trainer, and health coach. He has several years of experience with health and nutrition coaching and personal training, and he has written for a variety of health and fitness magazines and websites. On his website and through his articles, Eirik seeks to bridge the gap between evolutionary science and medicine and locate the true causes of various diseases and health problems. So tune in as we dive into this article!

Key Points From This Episode:

  • How an unplanned low-carb diet can damage the body.
  • The effects of the evolutionary shift in the human diet.
  • Conditions that allow undesirable bacteria to proliferate in the gut.
  • Why low-fiber diets can wreak havoc on the gut microbiome.
  • The epigenetic effect of decreased microbial biodiversity.
  • Which high-fiber vegetables are most recommended.
  • The importance of studying our ancestral dietary habits.

Tweetables:

“In the blink of an eye on the evolutionary scale, humans have gone from eating bulky fibrous diets comprised of wild plants and animals, to eating highly-processed, calorie dense diets comprised of industrially produced food.” — Eirik Garnas [0:05:35.1]

“Even a diet built exclusively from whole, minimally processed foods may leave the microbiome in a compromised state if quantities of carbohydrate, including fiber, fat, and protein are imbalanced.” — Eirik Garnas [0:06:48.1]

“A large body of evidence now shows that low-fiber diets can wreak havoc on the gut microbiome.” — Eirik Garnas [0:07:58.1]
