I love when I have science experts on this podcast  because I get to ask all my nerdy questions, and I am really happy to share today’s super informative podcast guest with you. I’m speaking with Dr. Anthony Thomas, who is a nutrition researcher and the Science Director at Jarrow Formulas, a formulator and supplier of nutritional supplements which I have been using and recommending for many years (no financial relationship—I'm just a longtime fan). Dr. Anthony specializes in evaluating dietary supplement formulations and has a passion for both nutrition and health.


There is so much to learn from Dr. Anthony and his research, but here are a few highlights of our conversation:

  • Diet, lifestyle and nutrition all play key roles in our immune system’s function.
  • There’s a strong connection between our gut health and immunity.
  • Key ways to nurture gut health include ensuring your body receives the appropriate amounts of Vitamin A, Vitamin D, zinc, probiotics, and dietary fiber.
  • Supplementing our diets with probiotics and prebiotics is extremely beneficial to our overall health.
  • Healthy living means having a balanced lifestyle.
