Apr 27, 2021 | Season 4


Today we talk to Colleen Cutcliffe, PhD, who is the co-founder and CEO of Pendulum Glucose Control, a probiotic product. We dive deep into the correlation between your gut microbiome and blood glucose levels, discussing the positive and negative effects of antibiotics on your body and especially the bodies of children. The effects the microbiome has on the mind and various diseases was obscure to all of us until recently research on this is showing more and more the link between these issues.

“The question we should all be asking our doctors is, ‘Do I really need to be taking this antibiotic? What can I do to help ensure that these other negative repercussions are things that I can counteract? How do I do that?’ And so I think it’s just being a little bit more cautious and aware of what those antibiotics are doing to us.” 8:00
