In this episode, I am joined by founder of Just Thrive, Tina Anderson, for an expert look at probiotics. After having her eyes opened to the many abuses of the pharmaceutical industry, Tina set her sights on natural health through her probiotic line Just Thrive. With a passion for keeping people healthy through optimal gut health, Tina dispels the most common myths and misconceptions about probiotic supplements and why everyone should take them - even if you don't have digestive distress. From the best types of probiotics (spore vs. soil-based?), how to choose the right probiotic, to the ins-and-outs of how probiotics actually work in your microbiome, this episode is your go-to guide to all things probiotics and 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.
