You know I’m all about sharing the latest and greatest when it comes to optimizing your gut health. 

That’s why in this episode I welcomed back a familiar face, John Eid co-founder of Pendulum Therapeutics, one of my go-to companies for innovative gut health supplements.

If you’ve been with us before, you’ll remember John from our discussions on the benefits of Akkermansia, my favorite gut buddy. He’s back with incredible new findings on this powerful bacteria and so much more – including GLP-1.

GLP-1 is an all-star hormone that supports your health, and you’ve probably heard a lot about it on commercials and the internet. But now YOU can produce more GLP-1, and we reveal just how in this episode. 

You’ll also get an exclusive sneak peek into Pendulum’s groundbreaking new solutions and how they can help when it comes to uncomfortable digestion, unhealthy cravings, and so much more! 

On this episode you’ll learn:

  • The extraordinary gut hormone that’s taking the health world by storm (and its incredible role in fostering weight loss) (3:15) 
  • Why this diabetic-targeted product has transcended its intended audience and may benefit non-diabetics (10:00)
  • The mystery behind bear bile, and the surprising reasons why it has become my top recommendation for patients (13:15)
  • Why there is an epidemic of fatty liver disease in America (and what you can do to help protect your health) (18:04)
  • The differences between probiotics, prebiotics, and postbiotics (and the unique health benefits that each of these offer) (19:38) 
  • Why live bacteria surpasses dead bacteria in both benefits and utility (26:11)
  • Whether or not you should discontinue supplementing friendly bacteria after consistent consumption (31:22)
  • The incredible connection that ties your gut health to the brain (and how it can affect your mental health) (40:15)

This episode is sponsored by Pendulum, but Dr. Gundry’s opinions are his own.
