Today we had the pleasure of speaking with Tina Anderson of Just Thrive Health! Just Thrive is one of few probiotic companies with profound research and studies. They take gut health seriously and have the products, research, and studies to show for it. We truly love Just Thrive and its mission to help as many people as they can to take control of their health and heal naturally.


Oftentimes as people, we take supplements passively. We hear about them in passing and decide to add them to our routine simply because we “should.” Probiotics may be one of these supplements. We know that they are good, but do we know why we are taking them? How they affect us? The difference between them? Which ones to take? Or how often to take them?


In this conversation, Tina breaks it all down. We also go beyond the scope of probiotics and talk about the actions you can take today to improve your health and our overall mind/body connection. Tina also gives her insight on how you might be damaging your gut, how to incorporate this knowledge with your children, and the problem with sugar.


Though we’ve talked about biology and how important it is for your health on the IGNTD podcast before, Tina really blew our minds with the knowledge she dropped on us today! We are so excited for you to tune into this conversation and learn all about why your gut — and its bacteria — matters.
