Probiotic and Prebiotic Specificity

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.

I was in Southern Utah for. triathlon camp this week – and our run went a little long…

So…you’ll see that I did this Deep Dive from the middle of a city park in St. George Utah (thank goodness for free public wifi)! ?

Here is what we talked about = the health benefits of probiotics are dependent on the specific STRAIN of bacteria – and the health benefits of prebiotic fibers are dependent on the specific STRUCTURE of the fiber.

This is why some probiotic/prebiotic supplements can help with depression, anxiety, and stress – while others only support general gut health.
