They sound like a punchline until you're experiencing them: Side effects. Whenever a powerful molecule like pharmaceuticals or dietary supplements are taken, there is always a risk of experiencing an "adverse drug reaction". What causes ADRs? Can they be reduced or eliminated? When does the risk of side effects outweigh the potential benefit? We get into all of that and more!

Also, Chick-Fil-A reversed course on antibiotic use in their chickens, and a new study reinforces the critical nature of the gut-brain connection by shedding light on melatonin production in the gut. We have all the details Behind The Counter!
