In this episode, I chat with guest Dr. Marvin Singh, who dives deep into two important health topics we need to know more about: antibiotics and probiotics. Both antibiotics and probiotics have a huge impact on our gut health, which in turn, have a huge impact on our overall health.
I know many of us have no idea there are negative effects of antibiotics. We feel sick, we go to the doctor, we get prescribed an antibiotic and we take it without thinking twice. While in some situations antibiotics are needed, they are over-prescribed and causing more harm than good to our gut health.
To ensure our gut health is optimal, supplementing with probiotics is essential. But, if you’re anything like me, picking out the right probiotic is confusing and overwhelming! Do I want 10 billion or 50 CFUs? What even are CFUs? How many strands of bacteria do I want? Which strands of bacteria do I want? There are so many words on the label that I have never heard of before, let alone pronounce!
Dr. Marvin Singh helps us understand antibiotics and probiotics in greater depth, allowing us to make the best decisions for our gut health. He dives deep into the effects antibiotics have on our gut health, what we need to do when antibiotics are absolutely necessary to take to protect our gut health, what we need to look for when selecting a probiotic supplement and how to use probiotics effectively.
