Why Gut Issues Are On The Rise And How To Fix It

Episode 556 1h 17m


When we ingest 60 percent of our calories from ultra-processed foods, as most Americans do, we destroy our microbiome (i.e., the ecosystem in our gut). The microbiome plays a role in every disease, so why aren’t we doing more to protect and restore it? One third to one half of all Americans have gut issues due to the constant consumption of industrialized foods, glyphosate, food additives, and more.

This is a problem—and it’s time for us to take action. In this episode of my Masterclass series, the first in a series on gut health, I am interviewed by my good friend and podcast host, Dhru Purohit, about the importance of polyphenols for our gut health. We also discuss my gut-health journey, which led me to dig deep into understanding the value of a healthy gut and diverse microbiome, and how to get there.
