About Us

If you're fascinated by all things to gut health, the gut-brain connection, mitochondrial health, the microbiome, fermented foods, biohacking, optimal health & wellness and longevity then this podcast is for you. We bring you, various experts from around the world and explore topics from a scientific perspective.A big welcome to The Gut Health Gurus podcast brought to you by Food Scientist & Registered Nutritionist, Kriben Govender. Around 8 years ago, Kriben's life imploded. He was extremely depressed, overweight and lacking in energy and vibrancy. He found himself alone in an apartment, ready to end his life. A combination of workplace bullying, stress, a struggle with anxiety and depression and a collapsed marriage resulted in a sense of worthlessness. For the sake of his 3 young boys, Kriben soldiered on and discovered the importance of gut health on his mental wellbeing. He found inspiration in the work of Dr Natasha Campbell McBride through here book Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS): Natural Treatment for Autism, Dyspraxia, A.D.D., Dyslexia, A.D.H.D., Depression, Schizophrenia. He started to follow a GAPS diet, made homemade fermented foods like kefir, kombucha and sauerkraut, adopted a transcendental meditation (TM) and yoga practice, attended cognitive behaviour therapy sessions with a psychologist, learned the Meisner and Alexander acting techniques - all which helped him overcome his struggle with anxiety and depression. Kriben holds a honours degree in Applied Science (Food Science and Technology) and is a member of the Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology and Nutrition Society of Australia.With more than 20 years of Food industry experience in the field of Research and Development, Quality Assurance and Procurement, Kriben intimately understands the food supply chain and the interaction between diet and the gut microbiome. He has personally visited more than 100 food processing sites across the world.
