This special episode features another installment in our series of conversations between mbg founder and co-CEO, Jason Wachob, and functional medicine pioneer and scientific adviser at Thorne, Robert Rountree, M.D. This week, we’re getting a lesson in the specificity of our probiotic+ product.

Even if you don’t necessarily suffer from inflammatory bowel disease (IBS), chances are you could be doing a better job with your gut health. Rountree talks about everything from fermented foods to the confusing world of probiotics, discussing why many supplements use a “sledgehammer approach” but it was important that we used a “workhorse approach” to our strain selection.

Tune in to this episode to hear firsthand how we created our solution for beating boat, improving digestion, and weight maintenance. We know we don’t have to tell you how important the gut microbiome is for our overall well-being, and the right probiotic can help you keep it regular and healthy.
