    A Deep Dive into The Healing Power of Polyphenols with Dhru Purohit

    A Deep Dive into The Healing Power of Polyphenols with Dhru Purohit

    This episode is brought to you by Vivobarefoot and InsideTracker.
    Humans and plants co-evolved to help each other survive, and polyphenols were integral for nurturing this relationship. Even though they aren’t considered “essential nutrients,” the latest research is starting to suggest otherwise.
    Polyphenols help prevent disease by interacting with our DNA and modulating our gut microbiome; they are not just antioxidants as we once thought.
    Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru talks about what polyphenols do for our gut health and our overall health and how to incorporate eating more of them into your life.
    In this episode, we dive into: 
     
    -What are polyphenols?-Which plants contain toxic phytochemicals-The different types of polyphenols-How polyphenols feed our good gut bugs and help them grow

    Skeletal muscle is a widely overlooked part of our metabolic health. 
    From how well we control glucose and insulin to how well we age, skeletal muscle regulates many processes.
