Tina Anderson used to work as in-house counsel for a pharmaceutical company – but,  frustrated by the many abuses in the pharmaceutical industry, Tina decided to make a dramatic change to her life and career.

She channeled her energy into learning all she could about disease prevention and good health maintenance, which led her to the often overlooked key to health (or disease): our gut. She also discovered that the majority of probiotics on the market simply don’t work.

So, Tina teamed up with her husband and world-renowned probiotic expert Dr. Simon Cutting to create a unique supplement that uses superior probiotic strains identified by Dr. Cutting.

The bacillus strains found in Just Thrive supplements are abundant environmental organisms that have evolved to be consumed by humans on a daily basis. They thrive in our digestive systems, performing critical functions such as developing the immune system, reducing inflammation, facilitating digestion, and producing important functional compounds like antioxidants.

Our guts do a lot for us, and there’s only so much that a healthy diet and lifestyle can do if we’re not taking care of our guts – so, today, Tina is going to teach us how we can make our gut’s job a little bit easier.

ORGANIFI. I'm loving Organifi Gold, especially for my night time routine. It has turmeric, ginger, reishi, lemon balm, turkey tail and other rad superfoods, phytonutrients & pain-soothing herbs. My daily routine lately goes like this: in the morning, I add it to my nut milk smoothie. At night when I want to chill out, I make a golden latte. I add the power and a healthy fat like ghee, coconut, or grass-fed butter to hot water and voilá! Great warm elixir, really chills you out, gently detoxifies and tastes awesome.

JOOVV. If you’ve been listening for a while or following Luke on social media, you’ve probably seen him raving about red light therapy, or photobiomodulation. There are over 3000 published clinical papers on light therapy – over 200 being double-blind, randomized, and placebo-controlled – making this arguably the most well-researched bio hack in Luke’s arsenal. Some of the benefits include increased skin health, better muscle recovery, better sexual performance, and reduced joint pain and inflammation. So you can see why Luke is so into it... and why all of his friends keep coming over to use his Joovv device!

BLUBLOX. Studies have clearly shown that blue and green light up to 550nm is a potent suppressor of melatonin, but the Sleep+ lenses in BLUblox glasses are the most effective blue and green light blockers for after dark use, proven to block 100% of the light in this range. BLUblox offers free global shipping everywhere, and they do prescription glasses, reading glasses, and non-prescription glasses for a tremendous value.
