Introduction to Probiotics

As a registered dietitian and health coach, many of my clients ask about probiotics.

My clients question if including probiotics in their diet (or taking supplements) will make them feel better.

Can probiotics protect against cancer, ulcers and other digestive problems? Reduce allergies or improve immunity and resistance to infections? Can they even help with bad breath?

I understand why my clients have questions.  Probiotics is an emerging trend and unraveling the science from the hype is no easy task. One thing is for sure, though, product manufacturers are having a hey-day with it.  I bet you are seeing lots of new products at your grocery and drug stores touting help for your tummy troubles and support for your overall health. Should you eat yogurt like Activia, try a supplement like Florastor, or drink a juice like Good Belly?

There is so much to learn about probiotics, and starting with the basics is always the best.  Then you can make smart decisions about your diet, yous body and your wallet.

In this 90 minute Intro to Probiotics tele-class, you will learn:

  • The physiology of the gut and what makes up the microbiome
  • The health benefits of pre- and probiotics (and, yes, the health risks)
  • Treatments using probiotics for various health conditions
  • What foods you can eat, and what you can forego to help your gut bacteria to thrive
  • What supplements are worthy to take, and which are bunk, and why
  • Credible on-line resources that you can trust and go back to over and over again, in addition to a simple 5-Step Plan for Optimal Gut Health
