Show Notes

What does “70% of the immune system is in your gut” really mean?? 🧐

The abundance of sources online can sometimes get so convoluted that instead of encouraging the layperson to actively know more about their gut… You kind of just give up. 🤷‍♀️

But not today! 🙌

In this week’s podcast, we have research microbiologist Kiran Krishnan (@kiranbiome) who will break down the super complicated nature of the microbiome’s relationship with our immune system using easy-to-follow, beginner-friendly analogies. 

In Kiran's words, the microbiome acts as the eyes and ears of the immune system. 👀👂

He explained:

🧬 The evolution of our immune system from being naive to protecting you from viruses and bacteria

🦠 How your gut microbiome ‘tutors’ your immune system to work better

🌿 What happens when you don’t have a healthy microbiome

 A much simpler version of how the COVID virus devastates immune response, especially those with comorbidities

🐶 The top 5 things you can do to have a healthier microbiome (Hint: Your pets can do more than reduce your stress!)

And SO much more!🎙

Your immune system is an important topic that we cannot ignore, especially today. 

👂So listen along as Kiran reveals the eye-opening story behind the gut-immune connection and how it impacts the future of the human race at the link in our bio!
