EP 28 - Stop Taking DEAD Probiotics
The probiotics you’re taking are already dead.

Microbiologist Kiran Krishnan explains that we have over 100 trillion bacteria that live in and on our body system. These bacteria control ninety percent of what we do. Bacteria are major players in our health and wellness.

Most probiotics were developed based on assumptions and hypotheses before there was much research on the gut microbiome. They need special coating to get past digestive acids to get to work in the gut.

Prebiotics act as food for bacteria. Precision prebiotics are now available to just feed the good bacteria, starving the bad bacteria in the gut.

Listen as Kiran joins Dr. Bond to talk about the history of probiotics, how they work, and what causes leaky gut.
