Gut Health Gurus Podcast

Kriben Govender is a Food Scientist and Gut Health Advocate. He is the founder of Gut Health Superstore, Nourishme Organics. He had a seemingly happy life which came crashing down. He was bullied in the workplace, his marriage collapsed, he lost his job and found himself alone in an apartment ready to end his life. Kriben soldiered on, and discovered the impact of gut health on overall health. His purpose is to share the importance of gut health in addressing many different health issues. In this show, Kriben explores how you can improve your health and wellbeing by focusing on your gut.

Kriben Govender (Honours Degree in Food Science and Technology) has a mind-blowing conversation with Dr Laszlo Boros from The Deuterium Depletion Centre on the dangers of excess deuterium and strategies to naturally deplete deuterium from your body for optimal health. We discuss the impact of deuterium on our mitochondria, gut and microbiome. 
Dr Boros holds a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree from the Albert Szent-Györgyi School of Medicine, Szeged, Hungary.  Dr Boros is currently a Professor of Pediatrics, Endocrinology and Metabolism at the UCLA School of Medicine, an investigator at the UCLA Clinical & Translational Science (CTSI) and the Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institutes, and he is also the Chief Scientific Advisor of SiDMAP, LLC.  Dr Boros studies functional biochemistry for drug testing that involves library screening, lead optimization and in vitro and in vivo phenotype profiling.  The core technology involves studying natural and disease/drug-induced variations in stable non-radiating harmless isotope variations via cross-talk among metabolites in living systems with 13C-glucose as the labelling substrate.  Dr Boros is the co-inventor of the targeted 13C tracer fate association study (TTFAS) platform to study deuterium as an oncoisotope and its depletion by mitochondrial matrix water exchanges to prevent oncoisotopic cell transformation by deuterium.
Dr Boros trained as house staff in his medical school in gastroenterology after receiving a research training fellowship from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.  Dr Boros was a Visiting Scholar at the Essen School of Medicine in Germany and also worked as a Research Scientist at the Ohio State University, Department of Surgery, in the historic Zollinger-Ellison laboratory.  Dr. Boros is the recipient of the C. Williams Hall Outstanding Publication Award from the Academy of Surgical Research of the United States (1997), the Richard E. Weitzman Memorial Research Award from the University of California (2001), the Excellence in Clinical Research Award from the General Clinical Research Center at the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center (2004) and Public Health Impact Investigator Award of the United States Food and Drug Administration (2011).  Dr Boros serves as an associate editor for the journals Metabolic Therapeutics, Pancreas and Metabolomics and member of the Presidential Subcommittee for Hungarian Science Abroad, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Section of Medical Sciences (V).  Dr Boros is an Academic Editor of Medicine®, a high impact weekly periodical publishing clinical and translational research papers worldwide.
