The Best Foods To Heal The Gut

Episode 563 44m


Our gut, and the tons of bacteria that reside within it, regulates many of our bodily functions, from creating vitamins to controlling our immune system, our brain function, and, of course, our metabolism and weight. The gut is the number-one place to investigate when healing the body of any chronic symptoms or diseases. If your gut isn’t healthy, you’re not healthy!

In this episode of my Masterclass series, I am interviewed by my good friend and podcast host, Dhru Purohit, about why prebiotics are vital in creating a healthy gut. These are the things your good gut bugs love to munch on. In turn, they produce beneficial compounds such as short-chain fatty acids, which have been shown to help prevent things like colon cancer.
