The Top 3 Nutrient Deficiencies and How to Fix Them with Chris Kresser

This episode is brought to you by BiOptimizers and Pendulum.

In an ideal world where soils are rich and air and water are pure, we would be able to get the vitamins and nutrients we need to optimally support and sustain a disease-free life through diet alone. However, I’ve learned for most, that's just not practical in our toxic, modern world.

Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru sits down with Chris Kresser to talk about the increasing issue of nutritional deficiencies, how we got here, and how to add back in what the modern world squeezed out. 

Chris Kresser is the cofounder of the California Center for Functional Medicine, the founder of Kresser Institute, the host of the top-ranked health podcast Revolution Health Radio, and the New York Times bestselling author of The Paleo Cure and Unconventional Medicine. He has recently launched Adapt Naturals, a supplement line designed to add back into your diet what the modern world has crowded out and help people perform and feel their best.

-The top three reasons why people end up having a nutrient deficiency (2:01)
