Real Health Conversations
Real Health Conversations (Formerly Low-Carb Conversations) is hosted by Holly Jean Mullen, FNTP and features a variety of voices in the world of modern nutrition and health science, expressing many different points of view.

Episode 398

This week on the Low Carb Conversations Podcast Amber and Holly Jean chat with Kiran Krishnan, microbiologist and co-founder of Microbiome Labs. Kiran has a background in research and has been at the forefront of designing clinical trials for the supplement industry. His company, Microbiome Labs, is dedicated to continued research on the microbiome, as well as providing research based probiotics and other supplements to practitioners. He also has a lot of great videos on YouTube if you want to go on a deep dive!

In this episode we talk with Kiran about the importance of a balanced and healthy microbiome (gut bugs!) and how that relates to our immune system and ability to fight off all forms of pathogens from viruses and bacteria to other bugs. We also talk about the connection between gut health and gut microbiome and how that impacts the oral and skin microbiome. Science is just scratching the surface of the human microbiome and how probiotics and other support can help with overall health and wellness. This is a great episode to come back to as a reminder of how much our gut health impacts the rest of the body.
