Today is the day that our Fall probiotic – Mood – drops which will ship between September 20 – December 19. We hope that Mood brings you a new attitude all season long. I’m sure you have a few questions and luckily, we’re a few steps ahead.
So first – why do we change up our product every season?
Our bodies needs change as the seasons change. Think about it: you feel different in January than you do in June (thanks to food, fitness, weather, sleep, etc.). The same goes for the bacteria in your gut. Bacterial diversity is critical to maintaining gut health (and overall health), so we change our formulations every season with the latest strains based upon our bodies’ needs during different times of the year.
Cool. Now – how did we formulate this product?
With fall comes shorter and darker days, heavier food and more indoor time. So we went to our team of experts including our formulators, doctors,scientists and reviewed published research, to determine what strains showed promise to impact mood, digestion, immunity, energy, and constipation.
Now at this point, we feel like it’s important to remind everyone that the science in this space is still developing, and the government (rightly) limits what companies like ours can say their product will do for you. For a refresher, read our launch post. Ok, now that our general counsel is happy, we can move on…
Our Mood formulation is built with a great seed-like probiotic (DE111) that survives in the gut, but also two more live strains. . Let’s dive into each:
- DE111 for Regularity and Beyond: Our spore-based powerhouse has been shown to be an effective probiotic to help with regularity and digestion – both important as we move toward less activity and heavier food. Plus, when you’re regular (BMs), you feel better. Everyone agrees with this.
- ROSELL-52 & ROSELL 175 for stress: This strain is highly studied to improve mood, stress, anxiety and stress-related gastrointestinal symptoms.
VITAMIN D3 for sleep: Yes, you'll probably be vitamin D deficient this winter. Vitamin D supports sleep quality and healthy immune function
VITAMIN B12 for overall brain health: Vitamin B12 decreases stress, lethargy and fatigue and supports healthy brain function
- L-Theanine for anxiety: This amino acid has been highly studied to improve anxiety, stress and sleep quality
