Today I’m (again!) talking with my personal friend and gut health specialist Steven Wright. He’s also a medical engineer and a Kailash Foundational Medicine Institute graduate. And he’s the founder of healthygut.com. You can catch some of my other talks with him on gut health here and here.
I always enjoy talking with Steven, but today we’re focusing on how to get the immune system into balance. And also about a really exciting new supplement coming out of Japan called paraprobiotics. These are different from regular probiotics in that they’re an immature form that transmits information to the gut. They can help with a “misfiring” gut that’s overreacting or underreacting to triggers like histamine and food.
The research is pointing towards some exciting results when it comes to things like eczema, inflammation, and brain health. I tried paraprobiotics myself and definitely noticed a difference! I hope you’ll join me and listen in on today’s episode.
