      The Integrative Effect of Probiotics on Whole Body Health - Victoria, BC

      Evening Intensive on The Integrative Effect of Probiotics on Whole Body Health: Emerging Evidence and Mechanisms Presented by Dr. Nigel Plummer, Ph.D.+ Compelling evidence is building that probiotics, as proxies of the microbiome, are similarly capable of affecting many parts of physiology. The positive effects of probiotics on immune and intestinal health are now established and some mechanisms are clear. In this lecture, Dr. Plummer will present progressive and up-to-date evidence on intestinal disparities, including IBS, intestinal permeability, overgrowth of unfavorable bacteria, and immune system support. Remarkably, unlike any other nutrient group, probiotics appear to have very wide physiological effects. This lecture will concentrate on the emerging evidence for the effects of probiotics on cognitive function, mood and the aging brain; metabolic health (including weight management, glucose and cholesterol metabolism); and physical performance. Dr. Plummer will present evidence that some probiotics appear to be able to exert most, if not all, of these benefits simultaneously – providing a solid argument that these probiotics should be considered an essential everyday dietary supplement for everyone. Key Learnings: Up-to-date evidence for benefits of probiotic use in many aspects of daily practice Evidence for use of specific probiotics in aspects of health previously considered beyond the scope of probiotic intervention A greater awareness of how to select a probiotic from the hundreds currently available  Wednesday, September 18, 2019 5:00 – 6:00 PM PST - Registration and Buffet Dinner 6:00 – 9:00 PM PST – Evening Intensive    Continuing Education Credits • Eligible for Cono Category B Credits (ON) • 3 CNPBC Hours (BC) • 3 SANP Hours (SK) • 3 MNA Hours (MB) • 3 Hours (AB) We are very pleased to offer you a complimentary dinner buffet.
