If you'd like to improve your gut health, diversify your diet!
Incorporating a variety of colorful plant-based foods, prebiotics, and select strains of probiotics is always a step in the right direction. But when it comes to probiotics and prebiotics, there’s a lot of conflicting information. Is a higher CFU always better? Will prebiotics feed bad bacteria too? Is it okay to rely on fermented foods as the primary source?
Today I’m joined by Dr. Jason Hawrelak, a naturopathic physician and expert in prebiotics, probiotics, and the gut microbiome. Dr. Hawrelak was my instructor in my master’s degree at the University of Western States, and I’ve also learned a lot from him in his online courses in the years since. Dr. Hawrelak did his Ph.D. examining the capacity of probiotics, prebiotics, and herbal medicines to modify the gastrointestinal tract microbiota and teaches worldwide on microbiota modification and gastrointestinal health.
In this conversation, Dr. Hawrelak and I discuss the importance of using specific strains of probiotics, the therapeutic benefits of prebiotics, Dr. Hawrelak’s take on treating Blastocystis and H. pylori, the potential negative impacts of long-term use of berberine, how you can nurture your gut microbiome, and more. Enjoy the episode!
