I became really interested in gut health a few years ago after suffering from major gastrointestinal issues. My symptoms included not only digestive issues, but also brain fog, mild depression and anxiety. The gut is considered our second brain and it's our Gut Brain (Enteric Nervous System), not our actual brain that makes 90% of the body's serotonin (a crucial mood balancing neurotransmitter).
My journey to healing my gut included eliminating inflammatory foods, assessing nutrient deficiencies and supplementing my diet with crucial vitamins and probiotics. .
I take probiotics daily to keep my gut in check. And I'm so happy to be working with @smartyhealth in my mission of gut healing! One of the perks of my job is the opportunity to align with health conscious companies that are making a positive impact on the world. The SmartyPants adult probiotic is AVA-certified vegan and allergen-free. And for every bottle sold, they make a 1 for 1 nutrient grant to Vitamin Angels that goes directly to moms and children in need.
