IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™…

…we get into the gut. If you’ve listened to my podcast before you probably know how much the gut is a culprit in disease. I’ve invited experts on the show to explain how without the right balance of good bacteria in your gut, you can have inflammation, poor immune response, GI distress and much more.

Your gut lining is like a fence, explains Colleen Cutcliffe, Ph.D. It needs maintenance and attention, because that “fence” is what guards your gut from bad bacteria and toxins. Without it, you lose a strong defense system.

That’s where Akkermansia comes in. This bacterial strain naturally found in the gastrointestinal tract helps regulate the mucus lining of the gut, while also fine-tuning immune responses.

Only in recent years have people understood (and acted on) the gut microbiome’s role in wellness or disease. Dr. Cutcliffe shares the research behind Akkermansia and why this probiotic is changing the gut health game.
