How to BiOptimize Your Gut & Digestion – #515

Today’s guests are the founders of BiOptimizers, Wade Lightheart and Matt Gallant. Both of these guys are high performers, they look amazing, and they both have deep knowledge of human performance.

Wade is a former three-time Canadian natural body-building champion, and Matt is an experienced strength and conditioning coach for pro athletes who is in ketosis most of the time. Matt has also been working on supplements for more than a decade – so he really knows his stuff.

In this episode, we talk about processes that go on in your gut (that you probably don’t know about), probiotics, healthy gut bacteria, and something that is often overlooked in health and nutrition, the role that enzymes can play.

Enjoy the show!
