As a general rule of thumb there are two reasons people take gut health supplements:

  1. They have been told that to be optimally healthy you need to maintain a healthy gut.
  2. Something just hurts and doesn’t work properly and they’d rather it was normal.

A theoretical and more long-term reason that you put your faith into, and a super simple “as long as it makes me feel better and makes the washroom trips go easier” reason. 

Both are valid reasons, mind you, and it wasn’t until the rise of probiotics that people even cared about gut “health.”

“Gut health” can also mean many different things, and so gut health supplements can work in many different ways.

And we’re going to go over the main ones that work and don’t work in this podcast.

Let’s get to it.
