Before you all tried to turn him into a meme courtesy of the COVID-19 vaccine fiasco, he used to be somewhat an authoritative figure when it comes to health supplements. I still believe time will tell if he was on to something. In fact, he is the co-founder of Onnit, a company that specializes in all forms of supplements that serve everything ranging from physical fitness to Brain fitness.
Joe Rogan has expressed some interest in probiotics and their potential health benefits on his podcast. In various episodes, he has discussed the importance of maintaining a healthy gut microbiome and the potential benefits of probiotics for digestive health, immune function, and mental health.
For instance, look at how shocked he was when he found that one of his guests did not take any health supplements:
In one episode with guest Dr. Rhonda Patrick, they discussed the benefits of certain strains of probiotics, such as lactobacillus and bifidobacterium, for improving gut health and reducing inflammation. In another episode with guest Dr. Mark Hyman, they discussed the potential benefits of probiotics for brain health and reducing symptoms of anxiety and depression.
Long story short, the man is definitely into finding out more about probiotics just like most of us. Here see his mind blown by Steve Aoki’s claims about taking a 1 trillion probiotic everyday:

In another podcast episode that aired on May 5, 2020, Joe Rogan interviewed Michael Osterholm, an epidemiologist and director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota. During the podcast, Osterholm expressed skepticism about the effectiveness of many commercial probiotics, stating that there is limited scientific evidence to support their use. The guest in this podcast ends up claiming that FMT (Fecal Matter Transplant) is a better alternative to probiotics. However, you can clearly see that Joe is not immediately sold on the ineffectiveness of probiotics.
He has also discussed the importance of choosing the right type of probiotic and cautioned against overusing antibiotics, which can disrupt the balance of gut bacteria. In another episode, Rogan talked about the potential drawbacks of probiotics, including the fact that not all probiotics are created equal and that some may not be effective. He also noted that there is still a lot of research needed to fully understand the effects of probiotics on health.

Overall, Joe Rogan has also expressed interest in the potential benefits of probiotics for gut health and overall wellness. He has said that he personally takes a probiotic supplement, and that he has noticed improvements in his digestion and energy levels since starting it.
Every other attitude Joe has towards probiotics and other vitamin supplements shows that he would be right at home with My Probiotic Lifestyle’s commandment of do not believe without seeing. So, why would you sit behind a computer to be told what to do when you can easily test out some of these things for yourself?
However, it’s important to note that Joe Rogan is not a medical professional, and any information discussed on his podcast should be taken as entertainment or for informational purposes only. If you have questions or concerns about probiotics or any other health-related topic, it’s always best to consult with a qualified healthcare provider.
