I’m joined by Russell Foster CBE, one of the most prominent sleep experts globally and professor of circadian neuroscience at Oxford University. Russell’s research centres around sleep, the body clock and how the two profoundly affect our biology and our overall health and wellbeing.

We discuss:

Why sleep is important and how much we really need

The link between cravings, hunger, and sleep

Tools for improving sleep quality

Why stress may be at the root of your sleep difficulties

How fine-tuning your internal body clock supports optimal health

Each week I unpack a wellness trend with GP Gemma Newman. This week on Fact or Fad we’re looking at matcha versus coffee, where should we get our caffeine from.
