Sylwia Tabor Discusses the Benefits of MCT Oil, Gut Health, and Small Business Ownership
Do you suffer from digestive issues or just an overall feeling of unwell? Today's guest, Sylwia Tabor, took charge of her health and experimented with the addition and subtraction of various elements of her diet to figure out how she could function and feel her best.
Sylwia is influential in the carnivore space and is very transparent regarding her struggles with health and well-being. She suffered from gut health issues as a result of her eating disorder and a process of trial and error led her to the carnivore lifestyle. She's a big proponent of experimenting with various lifestyle changes to reach your optimum state of health and fitness. Her business, Carnivore Snax, produces some of the most delicious dried meat snacks we've had the pleasure of tasting. She's currently in the process of moving to a large warehouse as her business continues to grow, and we can't wait to see what great things she has in store for us.
