“The part that we really ignore quite significantly is the role of microbes in allowing us to handle and manage food.” (12:30, Kiran)

“The way the sympathetic nervous system gets blood to your brain and to your heart and to your central nervous system is by increasing inflammation.” (22:34, Kiran)

“When it comes to the microbiome, it’s never too late to make a change and make a difference.” (33:33, Kiran)

“People are putting their trust and their hard-earned dollars on these products to try to make themselves feel better and help themselves and most of it is nonsense.” (37:13, Kiran)

“People should not use a probiotic that doesn’t have published clinical studies on the finished product.” (38:21, Kiran)

“Don’t look at the overwhelming confusion of how to get there. Just incorporate two or three or four small little steps.” (56:04, Kiran)
