By now, you’ve probably heard of probiotics and prebiotics.

But on today’s episode, I’m going to talk all about postbiotics — the most important compound in your body you’ve probably never heard of.

Today, you’re going to learn why these special compounds — produced by the “gut buddies” living in your microbiome — are one of the most powerful ways to transform your health and energy levels. It’s one of the key principles in my latest book, “The Energy Paradox“.

You’re also going to find out which TOXIC gas can actually boost your health, how to get your kids to eat more fiber, and why one particular type of rice (yes, rice!) can actually be great for your gut health.

Believe me, you’re not going to want to miss this one!

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The shocking truth about probiotics (you need to hear this) (1:15)
  • Why feeding your gut buddies the RIGHT food is so important (and why most of us are feeding them all WRONG) (4:00)
  • How your gut bugs actually “talk” to your cells (this is wild) (7:05)
  • Why your mother is actually responsible for your energy (and the health of your microbiome — really!) (9:30)
  • How adding THIS element to water can actually boost your energy levels (13:15)
  • Why one toxic gas can actually boost your energy levels (but only if you get the RIGHT amount) (16:00)
  • The compound in butter that can help you lose weight and can affect your mood and energy levels (and a better way to get it than by eating a whole stick of butter!) (18:00)
  • The “cool” technique that can transform starches into food for your gut buddies (22:05)
  • Why THIS “embarrassing” habit after meals is actually essential for good gut health (and much more) (24:15)
  • What to do if you have a sensitivity to garlic and onions (this is SIMPLE) (25:05)
  • How much fiber you really need to eat every day (and how to sneak more of it into your kids’ diets) (28:30)
