Tina Anderson first joined the show back in episode 224, when she shared the story of working in the pharmaceutical industry and then leaving after she got too fed up with their abusive practices. She dedicated herself to actually helping people improve their health, and what she found was that the market needed a great probiotic. This was the beginning of Just Thrive.

Today, Tina returns with her partner in crime, microbiologist Kiran Krishnan. So, if you don’t like to get sick and you want to know how to build up a strong foundation for your immune system, this is the episode for you. 

I had absolutely no idea just how complicated our immune system is, but now that I understand it a little better, I feel better equipped to take control of my health and make the best decisions for my body.
