In this episode, my guests Tina Anderson, co-founder and CEO of Just Thrive Health and research microbiologist Kiran Krishnan have returned with updated research and new developments in how to treat and care for the human microbiome.
Tina is a former lawyer who found her life’s work in the field of natural health by creating a unique probiotic supplement company. Kiran is a research microbiologist with particular interest in gut commensal spore bacteria. “In the gut, diversity is paramount to health,” Kiran says. “Diversity in the gut will dictate how long you live. It has a huge impact on your longevity.”
You may know about probiotics, and you may even take them, but do you know why they work and how they support your immune system? Probiotics help immensely. But not just any probiotic—you want to use spore-based. And Tina and Kiran can tell you why bacteria and probiotics are frenemies of the best kind.
“One of the things that the spores do is they will flag our own cells that are infected with viruses so that our immune system can recognize them,” Kiran says.
And then there are the IgG antibodies that protect the body from infection. “IgG being these intelligent drones that you can send in that go around and find the mold toxin, find the bacterial particles, find the C. diff toxin,” Kiran says. “They neutralize all of these things that are driving the inflammatory process in the gut and get rid of them.”
Essentially, the gut steers the ship of your health. As researchers find out more about the human microbiome—how it operates and how it responds—we’re finding solutions to what ails our human body and brain systems.
