Bugs as Drugs?

Dr. Shawn Talbott (Ph.D., CNS, LDN, FACSM, FACN, FAIS) has gone from triathlon struggler to gut-brain guru! With a Ph.D. in Nutritional Biochemistry, he's on a mission to boost everyday human performance through the power of natural solutions and the gut-brain axis.

The “next big thing” in science (and medicine) is the concept of microbiome modulation to improve health and reduce (cure?) disease.

Below is just a short list of some areas in which the pharma and biotech industries are focusing – but some leaders in the nutrition industry are already harnessing the microbiome to support the gut-brain-axis and optimize mental wellness.
