We interviewed Rob Hurlbut, CEO of Attune Foods, a venture backed functional food company. Attune Foods –introduced a line of chocolate probiotics in 2006 then recently purchased healthy breakfast cereals Uncle Sam and Erewhon to expand their digestive health portfolio. Their products are available in most grocery stores.
Your gut plays an important in your total overall health – he said 70% of your immune system relies on your gut. Rob shared the importance of probiotics for good digestive health and suggested three things you should to in order to maintain good digestive health.
- Remove the foods your are allergic to from your diet
- Add more fiber into your meals
- Make sure you maintain good bacteria (probiotics) in your gut
Since all of the nutrients you consume pass through your gut before they are used by your body it makes sense that good health starts in your gut.
