Our body is host to billions of microorganisms, and especially the ones IN our gut microbiome have an effect on all aspects of our health. As far as supplements to optimize our health go, taking a high quality probiotic may be one of the most important ways to support our all over wellbeing.
Today’s guest Tina Anderson is the co-founder of Just Thrive, a supplement company specializing in spore-based probiotics. From a career in the pharmaceutical industry that left Tina and her husband deeply disappointed with the over prescription of drugs and the lack of preventative treatments, the couple decided to look into a different, more natural way to help people. And they dove in head first, spending their life savings on acquiring the exclusive rights to a groundbreaking probiotic strain developed by London University and then building a company from scratch.
Today we are going to discuss all things probiotics: how to distinguish the good probiotics from the many suboptimal probiotic products on the market, what the best probiotics are and also how spore-based probiotics differ from the rest. Tina has some interesting and "easy to digest" takes on these complex topics.
