Science around the microbiome has been blooming, and probiotic supplements are projected to reach a market of 78.3 billion USD by 2026. But how can you navigate through the thousands of different products that are available, and what science is there to demonstrate that these probiotics are even beneficial in the first place? 

In this episode, Nick picks the brain of health expert Wade Lightheart who’s at the forefront of probiotic research and development through his company BiOptimizers.

Discussed during this episode:

  • How Wade went from vegan bodybuilder to an expert in developing probiotics, enzymes and other digestion-supporting supplements
  • The important difference between transient and resident strains of probiotics
  • The difference between enzymes and probiotics, and what role they play in your body
  • Are probiotics and other supplements simply “masking” your gut dysfunction? Here’s Wade’s answer to my controversial question…
  • Why Bioptimizers chose the L.Plantarum strain of probiotics in particular when developing their P3-OM product, and the long process they had it go through to make it even stronger
