Got Butyrate? Yes, this stuff ACTUALLY does a body good!

If you’ve been listening to this podcast for awhile, you know I love this gut-health boosting, POSTbiotic called butyrate. 

In my upcoming book “Unlocking the Keto Code”, I’ll reveal how butyrate is a health rockstar for many reasons, including its ability to help optimize your mitochondrial function. 

And my special guest, John Eid, Chief Science Officer and co-founder of Pendulum, is also a big butyrate fan. In fact, he’s built a career around it by researching genomic technology and the microbiome for over 2 decades. 

On this episode, he gives us a fascinating 411 on all things butyrate.

We also discuss why this special postbiotic is so essential for wellness and how to make sure your body produces enough of it so you live a long, healthy life!
