Keeping my kids healthy is more important now than ever. To avoid our daily lives coming to a screeching halt, I have 6 tips for keeping them healthy (and us), so I don’t have to press pause.
My name is Dr. Lisa Stern – I’ve worked in pediatrics for over 30 years, helping parents and their kids understand the importance of the gut biome. I’ve worked together with the Jetson team to formulate Jettie Melty Stix, a sugar-free, all natural, pre and probiotic powder to help encourage microbiome diversity during the most developmental stages of life.
You might experience mild side effects when using probiotics. Knowing probiotics' side effects can help you manage them and know what to expect.
Physiologically, there’s this thing called the ‘vagus’ nerve. And it runs directly from your gut to your brain. Vagus in latin literally means “wandering,” and this nerve is named as such because it controls a broad range of target tissues and is partially responsible for the way your gut and brain work together.
Would you believe me if I said that millennials are seeing their health decline faster than the previous generation (the Gen X-ers) as they age? In fact, millennials are on track to have a 40% higher mortality rate than Gen X as they hit 35 years of age.
Whether it’s a change in diet or adding probiotics to your routine, Jetson offers solutions to reset your gut and alleviate irritation. Think of this gut health reset like the fast lane to a healed gut. A lot of these tips can be made into lifestyle changes, but some of them aren’t meant to be long term. In fact, most gut health resets last anywhere from 3-14 days.
Right about now the earth could use a friend. Out west, we’re gearing up for yet another summer of smoke-filled air, which got me thinking about ways we can help both ourselves AND our planet (because the health of the planet has a pretty big influence on our individual health). Here are are 4 simple things you can do.
This is Jetson Explains: the TL;DR on the science behind the gut and its impact on your overall health – whether that be your metabolism, your mood, your skin, or your immunity. Because the truth of the matter is, the gut plays a part in all of the above, but the science behind it can get a little confusing (ok fine, more than a little). Jetson Explains makes it digestible.
Right now, 19 million Americans live in a food desert. Which the United States Department of Agriculture defines as a geographic area where at least 500 people – or 33% – of the urban population lives more than 1 mile from the nearest large grocery store, and at least 500 people – or 33% – of the rural population lives more than 10 miles from the nearest large grocery store.
As we get older our microbiome can become less diverse, which is positively correlated with being sicker. In fact, the older we become, the more we lose beneficial microbes and gain pathobionts that cause disease. This week I want to talk about a recent study that helps reinforce the importance of a diverse and rotating gut health routine (tip: if you’ve been taking the same probiotic for years…. It’s probably not hitting the same).
