OK so I found myself watching this ad for “keybiotics” which was at the beginning of a youtube vid I was about to watch.
It’s done in a painfully slow pitch format that has to do with a conspiracy theory Etc.
But I actually believe most of what the video says. According to the research I’ve done, the FDA has done some pretty shady things in recent/living history.
And as far as I’m concerned, microbial imbalance is often a plausible cause for many, MANY symptoms.
Some other stuff: As far as I know, most GI tract microbes cannot be reintroduced thru a supplement… I think I heard somewhere that there are at least 200-300 distinct organisms that we need to to have thriving in out intestines… Most of the probiotic supplements or foods out there can only claim to provide a few.
There is work being done on microbial transplants or ‘trans-pooh-sions,’ as one of the guys at Radiolab called it. Haha.
Anyway, this is totally legitimate science (not the video, the whole idea of microbes being a crucial part of humans). I suspect it’s highly under-appreciated. I suspect it’s going to become mainstream.
Here’s the video, but just so you know, I’m not buying their product. I am buying a similar product for less money on amazon.
