The centrality of gut health in overall health cannot be overstated, and for many years researchers and practitioners have encouraged probiotic use to promote gut health. But their recommendations have been based on early and inchoate research. Today, several decades after the emergence of gut health as the ground zero of overall health, science has been able to correlate specific bacterial strains with specific health outcomes—and one man has spent years anthologizing all that research and making it available to practitioners and patients. Dr. Jason Hawrelak is a scientist, educator, and naturopathic physician. He’s one of the leading experts in microbiota manipulation and the use of specific strains for specific conditions. He is also the creator of probioticsadvisor.com, where practitioners and patients can access information about specific bacterial strains. Check out my conversation with Dr Hawrelak on NFFM. I am thrilled to be introduced to his work (have referred folks to him already), and so appreciate his dedication to crunching the data for us clinicians on Probioticadvisor.com.
