Recorded Webinar: The Science Behind Immunity and Gut Health Through Postbiotics
This webinar was presented on Tuesday, May 25, 2021, from 2-3 p.m. EDT.
We all know that immune health is something you need to take care of daily. With our immune system tied directly to our gut health, it’s critical to ensure we are doing everything we can to support it. Enter postbiotics, the “new biotic” on the scene. Learn about the science supporting postbiotics, understand how postbiotics support gut health and therefore immunity, how post, pro and prebiotics are different from each other, and how we can make sure we’re getting enough postbiotics in our diet.
Join an expert panel of speakers representing the RD and research communities as they share insights into the importance and impact of postbiotics on health and wellness.
