327: Gut Check! The Probiotic Strain that Turns Your Gut into an Antioxidant Factory with Tina Anderson


Are all probiotics created equal? We find out in today’s episode with returning guest, Tina Anderson! Formerly an attorney working in the pharmaceutical field for 15 years, Tina found herself becoming more and more disillusioned with the pharmaceutical industry. After seeing the overprescribing of medications, the terrible side effects people were experiencing, and the amount of money being made keeping people sick, Tina realized she had to make a change.

At the same time, she found herself living an increasingly holistic lifestyle. She and her husband, Billy were avoiding antibiotics for both themselves and their three children, eliminating over-the-counter medications, living an active lifestyle, and eating more whole, real foods.

Tina realized that the old adage was true, “All disease begins in the gut.” Every time we eat or drink or expose ourselves to chemicals, toxins and hormones, we are either feeding disease or fighting it! With her newfound knowledge, Tina went on a mission to help others heal their guts holistically and choose probiotics over pharmaceuticals.

She learned quickly that in order to rebalance your gut, you need to take a daily probiotic that actually works, meaning the friendly bacteria (probiotics) win out the every day battle over the bad bacteria – AND actually stay alive once it hits your gut, (not just in the fridge.)

What Tina discovered was that the majority of probiotics on the market simply aren’t working, they are not natural, and they are not alive. Tina and Billy worked closely with Dr. Simon Cutting, a world-renowned probiotic expert at London University Royal Holloway, to gain access to the most widely studied and used probiotic strains in the world.

“We have got to start not being so fearful or stressed out in order to protect our gut microbiome and therefore, protect our immune system.”

– Tina Anderson

“To be a good probiotic it needs to be alive. The thing is, it doesn’t need to be alive in the refrigerator or at the health food store. It needs to be alive when it’s in your intestines.”

– Tina Anderson

“It’s hard to find any disease that’s not associated with an imbalanced gut. And so, people may go to the product because they have gas or are bloated. But the side effects may include more energy, better weight management, better mood…”
