In this episode of Habits and Hustle, I chat with Colleen Cutcliffe who gives us a step-by-step guide on all things gut health – understanding why optimization is key, why it’s growing in popularity, how your gut is controlling you, and exactly what you should do to reclaim your gut microbiome. We also dive into how the gut is linked to your metabolism, the popular trend of glucose control and why we should be concerned about our glucose levels, and why an increasing number of people are seeking natural alternatives to metformin.
