NUTRITION EVIDENCE ALERT
SENT IN COLLABORATION WITH NUTRIENTS
For this edition of the Nutrition Evidence Alert, we bring you some of the latest science that has hit peer-reviewed journals in the last few weeks. With so much going on in the field of nutrition at the moment, it is tricky to keep on top of new findings, theories and developments. Our pick of articles this month helps you do just that, so you can stay current and use the information to make effective clinical decisions. The selected articles cover topics from the effects of supplemental bacteriophage on gut inflammation to the association between skipping breakfast and being overweight in childhood. Be sure to check out Ben Brown’s article on the complexity of IBS as well as his paper with Deanna Minich on nutritional strategies that influence glutathione status. There are now 81 articles with plain language summaries on the database from 2019 alone. Have a browse and remember that focused reading of the science and reflection on the learning outcomes that arise from that learning can be logged as CPD.
As an update, there has been a lot of development under the hood in Nutrition Evidence, including the ability to add a range of different record types. Whilst PubMed will continue to be the main source of articles, you will now notice that when you run a search on ‘gut health’ – for example – you will also find some podcasts and e-Learning modules appearing in your search results. We all learn in different ways, so having the ability to access videos or podcasts from credible sources that complement peer reviewed information varies the ways you can keep abreast of the science through Nutrition Evidence. This new functionality is in its infancy, so watch it grow as we add more content over the coming months. We will of course, continue to focus on the best research quality available, so you can be assured that you are receiving the very best in nutrition evidence.
