This week I sit down with Just Thrive's CEO and Founder, Tina Anderson, and microbiologist, Kiran Krishnan, to talk all things gut health. Tina and Kiran explain that our bodies are fascinating ecosystems that need to be in balance and our microbiome has a significant role in that balance. They discuss how our changing world affects the diversity of our gut and most importantly, what you can do about it.

Kiran and Tina boast a wealth of knowledge and have a talent for taking this complex  topic and breaking it down for us to understand. Get ready to digest this new information and learn practical steps to improve your gut health.

Tina Anderson’s journey into the world of health had a unique start and some unusual turns. She began her career as a trial lawyer who specialized in settling cases by bringing both sides together, a personal passion of hers. Once her second child arrived, Tina left that high-stress job behind so she could focus on her family. Luckily, she was still able to use her considerable legal skills to point her career in a new direction as the in-house counsel for a family pharmaceutical company. But what Tina saw there made her change direction again. Frustrated by the many abuses in the pharmaceutical industry, Tina turned toward the field of natural health, and found her life’s work. She channeled her energy into learning all she could about disease prevention and good health maintenance. That led her to discover the importance of gut health and how connected and crucial it is for overall health and wellness. To share her discovery with the world, Tina along with her husband created a unique supplement that contains the superior probiotic strains of renowned researcher Dr. Simon Cutting. By promoting gut health and probiotics, Tina shares her passion for wellness, helping others live their best physical and emotional lives. 

Kiran Krishnan is a research microbiologist whose focus is the human microbiome and wellness. With his particular expertise in the newest frontier in microbiology, gut commensal spore bacteria, Kiran is a frequent lecturer, largely to national and international medical audiences, but also as an expert guest on live radio, satellite podcasts and many autism conferences. Coming from a strict research background in the fields of molecular medicine and microbiology at the University of Iowa, over the last seventeen years Kiran has conducted dozens of human clinical trials in human nutrition through the Clinical Research Organization he established. In addition to his recently published, ground-breaking leaky gut study showing reversal of gut enteropathy within thirty days, Kiran is currently involved in nine other ongoing human clinical trials testing the effect of gut commensal spore probiotics on many conditions including, Thyroid/Hashimoto’s, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Liver Failure, as well as a longer, more extensive Leaky Gut trial. Kiran brings his extensive knowledge and practical application of the latest science on the human microbiome as it relates to health and wellness. 

A few of my favorite things we cover this episode:

  • What got them into the world of gut health
  • The amount of functional genes in our bodies (hint: it’s less than an earthworm has) 
  • Why our gut is an ecosystem and how our environment affects it 
  • The gut diversity of hunter and gatherer tribes compared to ours
  • The universal rules for a healthy microbiome
  • The “prescriptions” Kiran gives himself 
  • Spore-based probiotics and what makes them different
