What do Butterflies, Bacteria, Your Brain, and Happiness have in Common?
Ever Have that Gut Feeling?
Butterflies in your stomach are a common sign of nervousness, twisting your tummy into gut-wrenching knots when you get anxious. That’s because your gut and your brain communicate with each other through your gut-brain axis, so when your gut bacteria is out of whack, your mind can feel sluggish, tired, or sad. BUT, using that same logic, you can help yourself feel better with proper nutrition. Nourish your gut to nourish your mind.
Bacteria to the Rescue!
Probiotics are live bacteria that are good for you, your microbiome, and your overall wellness. When consumed, they feed on prebiotics to multiply and thrive in your gut, pushing out bad bacteria to bring your body back to a more balanced state. When your gut microbiome moves from a dysbiotic (imbalanced) state to a more naturally symbiotic combination of bacteria, you can feel happier and healthier.
The Gut-Brain Connection
The connection between your gut and your brain is fascinating. When your mind anticipates something scary, you can feel it in your gut. The signals move back and forth between the two – when your stomach is upset, it can affect your mood. If you suffer from digestion issues, emerging science is finding that it is not uncommon to also suffer from depression or anxiety. They go hand in hand.

PsychoBiotic and Mood Probiotic
Passionflower has been used for centuries as a natural way to help ease anxiety and calm nerves. This stress relieving botanical has a very gentle sedative effect which is helpful for insomnia, anxiety, hyperactivity, and stress-related disorders.
This beautiful flower says it all in the name.
Slippery Elm Bark
Slippery Elm Bark (Ulmus rubra), also called moose elm or red elm, is known to soothe the inflamed mucous membranes of the stomach, bowels, and urinary tract. It is helpful when suffering from digestive issues because it helps line the stomach with soothing mucilage.
Slippery Elm Bark is also a great prebiotic, as the probiotics in your stomach ferment the components of the bark to positively help your gut microbiome.
Chamomile flower has been traditionally used as a natural remedy for stress and anxiety, indigestion, and insomnia. It’s healing properties have been traced back to the early Egyptians, and was used for centuries in Europe for colic in infants.
Containing high amounts of calcium and magnesium, chamomile helps strengthen the nervous system and the tryptophan promotes more restful sleep. It also contains vitamins A, C and F, for an added immunity boosting support.
Jerusalem Artichoke - Prebiotic Inulin
Prebiotics are KEY to ensuring that your probiotic is working as hard as it can for your body. Since probiotics are alive, they need to eat to grow, and that’s where prebiotics take the stage as the most important factor to the whole equation. When your probiotics multiply and thrive, they can have a much more powerful impact on your body.
The inulin found in Jerusalem artichokes provides the absolute best prebiotic fiber for the probiotics and are why we included them in our unique mood boosting formula. It is a great source of fructooligosaccharides (FOS), which support the growth of diverse, good intestinal flora to help you feel better.
