DID YOU KNOW that a study from Frontiers in Nutrition suggests there is a new postbiotic that targets obesity and glucose control called Akkermansia muciniphila?
The authors also suggest that those with dermatitis and asthma exhibit low levels of gut-derived Akkermansia muciniphila and could benefit from supplementation.
This strain should never be taken unless you are working with a knowledgable health professional. Please direct any questions to Steve at his direct email address.
Editor's Note: In last week's issue, there was a study cited using 100-140 mg. of zinc for lowering cholesterol. Please do not self-supplement with this dosage. The study was in a controlled environment, took into account total zinc intake on a daily basis, and was performed for only a finite amount of time.
