Is Low Insulin the Key to Everything? Conversation with Influential Health Leader & Metabolic Researcher Dr. Benjamin Bikman The Gabby Reece Show

    • Mental Health

My guest today is scientist Dr. Benjamin Bikman, author of Why We Get Sick. He is a leading metabolic research scientist, author of 'Why We Get Sick,' and a member of The Golden 30 (the list of the most influential health leaders who are driving the needle for podcasters). His work focuses on the things that disrupt or accompany metabolic disorders, like obesity, type two diabetes, and dementia. Ben discusses his appreciation for having healthy glucose levels but how important it is for us to focus on maintaining our insulin sensitivity and the long-term health impacts if we become insulin resistant. Dr. Bikman communicates a very clear path to managing some of these challenges based on science and what continues to show up in his research. He has created a brand called HLTHcode in an effort to support us in our fast paced lives with some of the right nutrition. Dr. Bikman offers a lot of information and helpful takeaways in this episode. Enjoy.
