The world of probiotics is, in reality, a challenging area to navigate. It is an area rife with misinformation, misunderstandings and commercially-vested information.
In this 3-part e-course, Dr Jason Hawrelak covers the probiotic prescribing fundamentals and details the wide range of mechanisms that explain how these agents can have such a myriad of health benefits. He covers actions that go far beyond just simple re-seeding - introducing a new probiotic prescribing paradigm - as well as covering dosing strategies and the essential characteristics to look for in a therapeutic probiotic supplement. As you'll soon see, there is a lot more to this than just choosing multi-strain and high potency!
Dr Hawrelak concludes by busting some long-held probiotic myths.
