Do bacteria cells really outnumber human cells in our bodies six to one? Is bacterial diversity in the gut always better? Listen to this podcast with Don Brown, N.D., director of Natural Products Research and Consultants, as he describes the facts and fictions of probiotic lore as either upheld or debunked by science. In this podcast, Sandy Almendarez, editor in chief, INSIDER, asks Dr. Brown:
Do good and back bacteria actually compete for “space” in the gastrointestinal tract?
Does a pregnant woman taking a probiotic improve birth outcomes?
Do antibiotics kill probiotics, making supplements ineffective during times of antibiotic use?
This podcast was recorded at the annual conference held by the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), which was held in Dana Point, California, in October 2018.
