In This Episode:

In this podcast, I go over the truth about sourdough bread and if it is healthy or not, is it gluten-free or not and what sort of health benefits can be attained by consuming sourdough bread?

  • 02:30 Questions about sourdough bread

  • 04:38 Is it healthy? Is it gluten-free?

Do you want to know the truth about sourdough bread? Is it healthy, is it gluten-free, and is it good for your gut?

Who should or shouldn’t eat sourdough bread? What are postbiotics and how do they benefit our health? Like with most things, there’s a level of personalization when it comes to sourdough bread and our nutrition – there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach.

In today’s short and sweet episode (or should that be sour?), Dr. Jockers is providing us with valuable insight on how gluten stimulates the protein zonulin, driving up inflammation in our body. He’s also educating us on the origins of fermented bread and whether or not it’s right for you. 

If you know of anyone making their own sourdough bread, please share this episode with them. We’re sure they’ll appreciate it. Thanks, and let’s go into the show!


“There’s also great postbiotics that are in sourdough bread as well that help with blood sugar stabilization.”   

-Dr. David Jockers
