[Podcast] Ep43: The Micronutrient Miracle with Mira & Jayson Calton

The chances are over 90% that you are micronutrient insufficient. And the scariest part is that you most likely don’t even know what micronutrients are and how to get the right ones. My guests today are certified micronutrients specialists and nutritionists Mira & Jayson Calton. In today’s episode we specifically discuss their brand new book The Micronutrient Miracle, a game-changer if you are tired of the non-stop fighting about “the perfect diet.”

If you just want straight, science-based information with easy to follow steps about how to approach your diet without worrying about sticking to a specific dogma (think “Paleo” or “Vegan”) The Micronutrient Miracle is the place for you to start.
