Probiotics Benefits + Myths | Improve Gut Health | Doctor Mike

This week’s episode is all about probiotics benefits and myths. The discovery of the microbiome has started off a huge cascade of new research as well as the launch of some questionable health products. I think that the idea that we are covered inside and out by bacteria, with the majority of it being helpful, is pretty mind-blowing.

I decided to make this video because I’ve seen your comments and questions on the subject, usually in the in the form of “how can I improve my gut?” Also, I’ve noticed that my patients have begun taking these supplements to cure everything from a weight gain, to a weakened immune system to acne.

As you probably already know I am a healthy skeptic and believe that just because we see some correlations between disease and good bacteria it is not as simple as putting those bacteria into a capsule. I firmly believe in the next 20-30 years we will unlock some fascinating secrets about our gut that will redefine how we think about our health.

If there’s something that you’re curious about and would like me to explore in a video, please let me know because I take your requests seriously. We’ve got some really great videos coming up in the next
few weeks so be sure to subscribe to stay up to date! Love you all!
