Kenda Rigdon, Founder

Our company was founded by Dr. Kenda Rigdon, who earned a Ph.D. in Microbiology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, in Birmingham, Alabama. Dr. Rigdon created Right in the Gut Nutrition after a career of instructing college health science courses, Nutrition Science research and many years of deeply searching scientific literature about the gut microbiome, seeking answers to the “WHY.”

Why are developed countries, like the U.S., suffering from adult obesity rates of 42.4%1?

Why are we losing the battle to chronic inflammatory diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and obesity?

Why do we see rates of depression, anxiety and drug abuse climb year after year?

Could the ROOT CAUSE be the same? We think so!

Welcome to Right in the Gut Nutrition. Read our blog and learn with us on our journey to find the answers. Pull up a chair and stay a while!
