Publisher's Summary

The best-selling author of the Wheat Belly books brings his next big, game changing idea — the human microbiome and the silent epidemic of SIBO — to the mainstream.

Wheat Belly was a breakthrough, informing listeners that the wheat and grains we consume today are not the same wheat and grains of our ancestors and were making us overweight and sick. In Super Gut, Dr. Davis takes his research and findings a step further and shows that because of our highly processed diet, pesticides, and overuse of antibiotics, our guts are is now missing so many of the good bacteria required to be healthy. As a result, many of us have lost control over health, weight, mood, even behavior.

The ancient bacteria that keep our gut in alignment and our digestion easy have been dying off, replaced by harmful microbes that don’t serve to keep us physically healthy and mentally fit. With cutting-edge research, Dr. Davis has connected the dots between gut health and modern ailments and complaints. There are entire species of microbes that have disappeared, creating health issues that were uncommon 100, or even 50, years ago. A major consequence is SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), a silent and profound epidemic, which affects one out of three people and is responsible for an astounding range of human health conditions.

Super Gut shows listeners how to eliminate bad bacteria and bring back the missing “good” bacteria with a four-week plan to reprogram your microbiome based on research and techniques that not only get to the root of many diseases but improve levels of oxytocin (the bonding/happy hormone), brain health, and promote anti-aging, weight loss, mental clarity, and more restful sleep. Super Gut explains the science clearly and includes more than forty recipes, a diet plan, and resources so you can pinpoint your gut issues, correct them, and maintain your long-term health and well-being.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Critic Reviews

Super Gut reveals how virtually every aspect of our health is fundamentally influenced by the vast array of microscopic organisms living upon and within us. Dr. Davis makes it clear that so many issues related to living in our modern world challenge this relationship and set the stage for illness. But the good news, as Super Gut so eloquently portrays, centers on our new-found ability to improve the health and functionality of the vast array of microbes upon which we depend. It’s clear that we can manipulate this relationship to our advantage. And Dr. Davis shows us how.” (David Perlmutter, MD, author, number one New York Times best seller of Grain Brain and Drop Acid)

“Reading Super Gut is reading an incredibly important manual on building the super ‘hard drive’ for a long, healthy, and productive life.... With easy-to-implement, inexpensive recommendations, it won’t be long before you’re forever grateful you took the time to read and implement.... All disease begins in the gut. So build a Super Gut!” (Dr. Tom O’Bryan, author of The Autoimmune Fix and You Can Fix Your Brain)

"Super Gut brings the conversation into new territory. Bacteria are not the bad guys! Dr. Davis' plan helps you replenish the microbiome and eliminate those culprits that are depleting us of essential natural probiotics that maintain a healthy gut. Microbiome medicine is an essential part of good health, disease prevention, vitality, and longevity. Bravo to Dr. Davis on this newest addition to the literature.” (Dr. Raphael Kellman, founder of Microbiome Medicine, author of The Microbiome Diet, The Microbiome Breakthrough, and Microbiome Thyroid)

A must for healing the gut

This is the most useful book I've found yet, with actionable information that allows patients to make the changes necessary to heal SIBO & SIFO without the interference of toxic medications.

The narrator is okay, not excellent, but not too many mispronunciations.

A healthy alternative

Dr Davis is a breath of fresh air that actually knows and tells the truth as it relates to your body. The Standard American Diet has really hurt us and No one is willing to be honest. That includes Big food, the government, dietician’s, and health care

Fantastic and helpful book to aid recovery

Thank you Dr Davis for this wonderfully written book! The narrator is pleasant to listen to as well. I have been on a multi year journey of healing. I just found out from my functional Dr that I suffer from Sibo overgrowth. This book has been a god sent in helping me to understand the complexity of the gut microbiom and how to help eradicate harmful bacteria from the gut. My journey continues with this fantastic book. I also purchased it hardcover so that I can make the many probiotic yogurts. Thank you!
