Show Notes

Here I read an excerpt from my new book, Super Gut: A Four-Week Program to Reprogram Your Microbiome, Restore Health, and Lose Weight, specifically chapter 5, Mind Your Mucus.

Before we get to the business of restoring lost microbes and pushing back unwanted species from the upper GI tract, we can also take action to strengthen the mucus barrier. Some strategies I advocate can bring relief from issues like abdominal discomfort and bloating within minutes to hours of adopting. I discuss:

  • What role mucus plays in gastrointestinal health
  • Why the fragile single-layer mucus barrier of the small bowel is ill-suited to blocking microbes normally present in the colon and stool
  • How and why foods like the eugenol of cloves and catechins of green tea can be used to thicken and fortify the mucus barrier

Find Super Gut in these bookstores:
