According to Kiran,
The gut and the digestive system, from a proximity standpoint, are the same; the effects and the scope are different.
- Digestive system: hone in on the process; breaking down and assimilating nutrients
- Gut: structural ecosystem of the largest part of the microbiome and largest structural component of the immune system; acts as a central command center for the rest of your body
Just Thrive Probiotic
The Just Thrive Probiotic, as you’ll hear in the episode, is a proven, potent and effective spore probiotic.
The spores in Just Thrive® have been successfully used to enhance digestive health in the pharmaceutical market for more than 50 years.
What are Spores
Spores and spore-based probiotics are mentioned throughout the show.
At the end of the show, Kiran mentions that wherever he can put up a little post it note with these two words, he does:
In case you’re wondering why he might do this, (because you’re not fully certain as to what spores exactly are) here you go:
- A very basic definition of a spore is that it is a dormant survival cell.
- By nature, spores are durable and can survive in less than ideal conditions.
- All fungi produce spores; however, not all bacteria produce spores!
- Furthermore, fungal spores and bacterial spores are different in how they function and how they are produced.
- They are reproductive cells in plants; algae and other protists; and fungi.
When Just Thrive refers to their spore-based probiotic, here is why the spore part is important:
- Their spore shell protects them from stomach acidity.
- The only strains used in Just Thrive Probiotic are “gut commensal,” meaning their natural home is the gut. Once in the intestines, these licensed strains of bacillus immediately move from their inactive, spore-protected state and come alive by opening their shell, eating, reproducing and cleaning up the microbial population.
Time to wrap this up. As always, a huge goal for this show is to connect with even more people. Feel free to send an email to our team at firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to hear questions, comments, show ideas, etc.
