My Podcast Interview About Resistant Starches and Grains

Here was part one of this interview with the Well Travelled New Zealander Jake Shuster. I’d hate for you to listen to part 2 without first hearing that part one.

Here’s part 2: Podcast #43: Tubers, The Wheat Question and Iron Hypotheses with Richard Nikoley.

If part one of our interview with owner Richard Nikoley was a primer on resistant starch and the modern microbiome, part two here is where we get really controversial. This celiac actually discusses whether or not it’s a good idea to eat wheat!

What can we learn about Islanders tuber consumption for gut health? How does microbiome in the air and supermarket impact wheat’s impact? Why is iron in everything?! Don’t miss Richard Nikoley’s controversial opinions here!

Do as you please.

    Ah, that photo of you on Jake’s website – when was it taken? You look about 10 years younger. Well done if it’s a recent picture.

    regarding iron and gut health…any concerns with the 1.8 mg of iron from “ionic plant based minerals” that is found in primal defense ultra probiotic? I’ve always found it strange why they include that in the formulation?
    thanks and great podcast!
