Episode 34: What Supplements to Avoid to Maintain Proper Gut Health

As we continue to grapple with a pandemic we need to be as healthy as possible. In today's episode, I want to take a deep dive into the topic of gut health.

Gut health is important not only for your immune system and your peace of mind, but also for your skin. I am seeing a lot of people taking supplements that they believed would improve their gut health, but in fact are actually harming their microbiomes. I want everyone to better understand how to get a happy, healthy, and balanced gut biome.

In this episode, I explain which supplements to avoid to maintain proper gut health, the symptoms of poor gut health, and the cons of probiotics.
