Katie: Hey, and welcome to the Wellness Mama Podcast. I’m Katie from wellnessmama.com and wellnesse.com, that’s wellness with an E on the tip. And I’m right here with a pricey private buddy and somebody whose work I deeply admire, that’s Tina Anderson of Simply Thrive probiotics, and she or he’s fascinating. She started her profession as a trial lawyer who specialised in settling circumstances by bringing either side collectively, which is a private ardour of hers. And after her second baby, she left her high-stress work behind to concentrate on household. And now, after her personal well being journey and a whole lot of analysis within the subject of pure well being, she discovered her life’s work, which is illness prevention and well being upkeep. And she or he’s the founding father of Simply Thrive alongside together with her husband, and I’ve been utilizing and speaking about their merchandise for years.


I used to be excited to have her on right this moment to speak about psychobiotics, which is a brand new time period that’s actually, actually fascinating. And I’ve been performing some analysis right here as properly. We go deep on this and particularly the gut-brain connection, how the gut-brain axis is so vital, how psychobiotics can affect psychological well being and resilience, how mind irritation is commonly a supply of a whole lot of stress and different points that we’ve, and so many different areas. She’s very well-spoken on this. I discovered loads. Psychobiotics is a brand new time period for me. I believe you’ll be taught loads, too, so let’s be part of Tina. Tina, welcome again.


Tina: Thanks, Katie. I’m so excited to be again.


Katie: Nicely, I at all times love speaking to you, and it’s particularly enjoyable after we get to report it, and we’re gonna get to go deep on some actually enjoyable matters right this moment. However earlier than we do, to assist individuals get to know you a bit bit higher, I’ve a be aware in my present notes that I’ve witnessed firsthand, which is that you just love to bounce, particularly on elevated surfaces and particularly with a tambourine in hand. So if you happen to don’t thoughts, simply give us a bit bit overview as a result of I do know there’s some cool like tradition dancing that comes out of your background, and it’s so enjoyable.


Tina: Sure. Sure. Oh, my gosh. You’ve gotten witnessed that, haven’t you? Embarrassed to confess, however yeah.. You understand what? I really like music. I really like listening to music. And I’m Serbian, and Serbian music is one thing that’s tremendous vital to me and I find it irresistible. It touches my soul and for no matter cause, one thing simply brings me to, like, tables, and I begin dancing on tables, or chairs, or no matter it could be that’s elevated. That’s not essentially tied to being Serbian, however it’s simply one thing that I do. And I snicker as a result of one in all my daughters has adopted swimsuit, and we feature that trait collectively. So, it’s enjoyable.


Katie: I find it irresistible. Yearly I do a factor that will get me out of my consolation zone, which prior to now has led to voice classes and standup comedy, and this yr, it’s dancing. So possibly this yr I’ll be becoming a member of you within the dancing warfare. We’ll see.


Tina: Sure. I’d love that.


Katie: Nicely, for the majority of what we needed to speak about right this moment, you guys have so many merchandise, and everyone listening has in all probability already heard me rave about them as a result of they’re staples in my life and in my youngsters’ lives. And there’s a brand new one which I’m excited to be taught extra about from you right this moment, and I believe this can be a actually vital matter that we’re not speaking that a lot about. So, I do know that there’s a brand new temper and mind product that you just guys have developed, and this has been a spotlight for you for some time. So I’d love to simply get some broad overview of a bit bit about it and why this was an vital focus for you guys.


Tina: Yeah. Nicely, , one of many huge core values that we’ve is that we solely launch merchandise which can be lacking and wanted available in the market. I imply, that’s after we launched the, , spore-based probiotic, we have been the primary. We have been simply disruptors within the probiotic house, and we didn’t wanna simply launch any probiotic as a result of there have been so many. We actually wanna discover issues which can be lacking and really wanted available in the market. And given the truth that temper problems are off the charts proper now, particularly, , even earlier than 2020, earlier than the pandemic, they have been already off the charts. Folks had been skilled a lot stress, significantly during the last two years. We now have seen temper problems, nervousness problems at an all-time excessive. There’s one examine that confirmed that 8 out of 10 U.S. adults really feel a lot stress that it’s truly affecting their bodily wellbeing.


So, we’ve actually delved into a whole lot of the analysis on temper and what will we do to really get to the foundation explanation for it. And a whole lot of researchers from a few of the largest establishments are actually beginning to check out that gut-brain connection. And I believe the rationale for that’s that once you take a look at psychiatric care, it actually hasn’t modified during the last, , in all probability 60 years. The identical class of medicine have been used, that are the anti-anxiety meds, the SSRIs which can be used for melancholy. So, primarily, the identical class of medicine have been used for many years with minimal success. And, , psychiatrists have had their fingers tied as a result of they don’t actually have many instruments. However because it seems as we… It at all times appears to end up the pure world has all these methods to handle the problem and to get to the foundation explanation for it.


And since the foundation explanation for mind and psychological well being points aren’t essentially stemming from the mind, they’re truly stemming from the intestine, and that’s why it’s so highly effective. You understand, we’ve heard individuals say, , the intestine is the second mind. Nicely, actually, what a whole lot of researchers are actually saying is that the intestine is the primary mind as a result of the intestine is absolutely dictating a lot of what’s occurring within the mind. One space of cognitive perform that many medical specialists have been talking on and researching is that this unbelievable connection between the intestine and the mind. So, it’s actually been an space that we’ve targeted on and are excited to, , carry a few of the analysis behind it to our clients and to carry options to them.


Katie: And I believe that’s an vital level. And as a caveat, I do know you’re feeling the identical manner, however I believe medical doctors go into drugs with a real need to assist individuals. Each physician I’ve met has been…had that true coronary heart to assist individuals. And I really feel like a whole lot of them really feel as handcuffed by the system as lots of people do as sufferers. And I’ve heard even medical doctors say, , individuals don’t have these points due to an SSRI deficiency. It could be a Band-Help, however it’s not trying on the root trigger, to your level. And I believe that’s the place the perfect outcomes are after we can mix the 2. And definitely, there are occasions when individuals do want conventional medical care. I’m an enormous proponent of remedy and various strategies there as properly, however I believe the intestine is just not talked about sufficient in the case of psychological well being. And I’m so excited that you just guys are getting into this dialog and actually educating about it. Are you able to clarify extra concerning the gut-brain entry for individuals who aren’t aware of that time period and what it does?


Tina: Yeah. Completely. You understand, the gut-brain entry, , it mainly is the intestine and the mind are linked by way of the vagus nerve. So, the gut-brain entry refers to this bidirectional communication between the intestine and the mind. And so, the enteric nervous system is that this neurological system that wraps across the whole digestive tract. And, after all, the microbes in our intestine have full entry to this enteric nervous system, and thru the enteric nervous system and thru circulation of the microbes within the intestine, there’s a lot of ways in which these microbes are affecting the mind. After which, one of many first methods is thru this endocrine system. So, the cells throughout the intestine lining might be triggered by the microbes to supply compounds like 5-HTP and different precursors to hormones. And we all know that the intestine produces neurotransmitters like serotonin. In truth, 90% to 95% of our serotonin is produced in our intestine. Dopamine is produced within the intestine, GABA’s produced in our intestine.


After which, we’ve postbiotics that are made by the micro organism within the intestine. So short-chain fatty acids and hormone precursors are all made by the intestine micro organism, after which these postbiotics can influence the mind. So, once more, it’s simply this communication between the intestine and mind is bidirectional. That is very properly documented. You understand, now researchers are very a lot beginning to perceive this, and indicators go down from the mind, go right down to the intestine, and from the intestine, go as much as the mind. So it’s fairly fascinating, and now we all know that even life-style selections like weight loss plan and life-style, , the stress and the temper that we expertise actually have an effect on our intestine, after which, after all, what’s occurring in our intestine is affecting our mind.


Katie: And I positively have witnessed that firsthand in my life when prior to now I’ve had intestine points and realizing, like, the mind fog and, like, the cloudiness that comes from that, after which conversely, I’ve seen once you work on that and actually help your intestine, the readability, and focus, and vitality that come alongside from that. And I really like that you just introduced out the time period postbiotics as a result of I really feel like this could be a brand new phrase for lots of people. We’ve all heard about probiotics and a whole lot of us have heard about prebiotics, and also you guys have nice merchandise for each of these. I really feel just like the time period postbiotics is a considerably of a brand new idea, however it actually helps to, like, tie that every one in of the way it’s not a one-way avenue in any respect, such as you stated, and the way they each help one another and the way that form of is a circle that may be in a constructive route, or if you happen to’re not supporting them, it may possibly form of go in a unfavourable route. Are you able to speak a bit bit extra about postbiotics and the way that course of works?


Tina: Yeah. So, mainly, postbiotics are simply byproducts of the micro organism in our intestine. And one of many most important ones that we consider are short-chain fatty acids. And so, a whole lot of just like the butyrate, all of all these short-chain fatty acids which can be produced by the micro organism in your intestine are thought-about postbiotics. And like I discussed, just like the precursors to hormones are additionally thought-about postbiotics, and so they, mainly, are simply the byproducts of the micro organism in our intestine. And that’s why it’s so critically vital that we’ve wholesome micro organism that’s already in our intestine as a result of they’re producing…they’re byproducts of that micro organism and can have an effect on our mind and different organs. And, , we talked about… We all know that the mind impacts the intestine, however…I imply the intestine impacts the mind, however the intestine is affecting just about each facet of our general well being. And I can’t overstate that sufficient. So, it’s actually vital that we’re taking good care of our intestine as a result of the micro organism is producing postbiotics, it’s additionally affecting how our different organs are functioning.


Katie: Completely. And the way all the things appears to tie in there even like I’ve talked loads concerning the emotional psychological aspect of well being just lately, and there’s so many cool research about how, like once you’re in a relentless state of stress or battle or flight, that truly is affecting your intestine micro organism immediately after which that has rollover penalties into your entire physique. And I’ve additionally heard you speak concerning the time period psychobiotic, and that was a brand new one for me. So, are you able to clarify what meaning?


Tina: Yeah. Really, the time period psychobiotic has been…it’s form of new for everyone as a result of it was coined in about 2013 by two psychiatrists and so they mainly… What psychobiotic refers to is the pleasant micro organism that play a task within the gut-brain entry and that influences the well being and exercise of your mind. So, it’s mainly the probiotic strains that assist enhance temper and cognitive perform. So it’s… And this, our new product, is taken into account a psychobiotic, which is absolutely thrilling. And, , to go even again up a bit bit, the most important offenders to and the foundation explanation for all psychological well being points is mainly that mind irritation. So mind irritation we now know causes this cognitive perform, issues like nervousness, melancholy, cognitive decline, all of those psychological problems, and psychological well being problems are all attributable to irritation within the mind. And so, we all know that the 2 greatest offenders to mind irritation are LPS toxins, which I’ve talked about earlier than on podcasts with you, however mainly LPS toxins are lipopolysaccharides that are usually present in our intestine micro organism in our intestine, however they don’t seem to be problematic. They’re probably not problematic after they’re in our intestine. They turn out to be problematic after they seep into our bloodstream.


After which, the opposite offender is stress-induced basal irritation, which mainly are these exterior stresses that we cope with day in and time out just like the concern, the social isolation, trauma, visitors, , preventing, , all these varieties of issues that we’re coping with frequently. So, the 2 varieties of offenders to this mind irritation are the LPS toxins that seep into our bloodstream and this stress-induced basal irritation. So, the excellent news is that, , the… The dangerous information… Let me go along with the dangerous information first. The LPS that leaks into our bloodstream may be very problematic. And we all know from the examine, we did a double-blind human medical trial on leaky intestine and confirmed that, , 55% of younger wholesome faculty college students had a leaky intestine and didn’t realize it. So, they estimate that most individuals are having that LPS seep into their bloodstream frequently. They estimate that about 80% of the grownup inhabitants has a leaky intestine and doesn’t even realize it. And so, this LPS results in continual low-grade irritation and is affecting all of our organs, not simply our mind, however we do know that, , LPS is related to increased ranges of hysteria, age-related problems. So, there was a examine that got here out, I believe in 2017, that microbiome-derived LPS has been proven to be increased in individuals with Alzheimer’s.


So, , this LPS is a big indication of Alzheimer’s illness. In fact, that’s an inflammatory illness, after which identical with Parkinson’s illness. So, , such a dysfunction that causes nervousness and melancholy is identical, and it’s all pushed by LPS toxins within the bloodstream. So, as an organization, that was one in all our most important targets, is to guard that intestine lining, and that’s why we launched Simply Thrive spore-based probiotic. Simply by taking the spores alone, we noticed a 60% discount of LPS toxins that leaked into circulation. So once you scale back that LPS from going into your bloodstream, the entire inflammatory markers come down. I imply, it was unbelievable what that examine confirmed us. So if you happen to’re taking the probiotic alone, you’re midway there. You understand, we already know that the probiotic alone is that fundamental a part of mind well being and cognitive perform as a result of we’ve to cease the LPS from seeping into the bloodstream as a result of these LPS toxins are going as much as the mind and inflicting irritation.


After which, after all, the opposite a part of that’s that stress-induced basal irritation that I discussed that’s mainly the exterior stresses that we’re coping with every day. And so, after we get an exterior stress, these exterior stresses instantly set off a response to the hypothalamus and the pituitary glands, after which that activates the adrenal gland that then releases cortisol. And we all know that cortisol begins rising irritation within the physique and it’s, , very, very dangerous. I’m positive you’ve talked about cortisol numerous instances, however it’s very dangerous, particularly to our mind as a result of it causes that irritation. So, , the place we got here in is how do… We already know the way we’re decreasing that LPS toxins. We already know we’re eliminating the vast majority of the LPS toxins seeping into the bloodstream by sealing up that intestine lining. However then the query grew to become, how will we arrest these exterior stresses?


And the good information and the place a whole lot of our analysis has been specializing in is there’s a compound known as peptidoglycan, and it’s been proven this capacity to arrest these exterior stresses. And the attention-grabbing factor is that peptidoglycans is handed from mom to baby whereas the kid is in utero. And I at all times am stressing about that. I’m at all times attempting to inform mothers who’re pregnant to be taking good care of their intestine as a result of all of those intestine micro organism and the nice ones are being handed onto the kid.


So these peptidoglycans are known as an exopolysaccharide, and that’s vital as a result of this exopolysaccharide truly has a layer round it and that layer is what makes it extra resistant and resilient so it may survive by way of the gastric system. You understand, we talked loads concerning the spore-based probiotics. They’ve that capacity, they’ve endospore shell round themselves and that enables them to get by way of to the, , gastric system and to the…or get by way of the gastric system to the gut. And that’s what’s so distinctive concerning the exopolysaccharides, is that they have that capacity to get by way of the gastric system. And so, bifidobacterium longum is a peptidoglycan, and so it’s this exopolysaccharide. And so, when it will get into the big gut, it truly has the power to mediate the inflammatory response by the center. And this bifidobacterium longum 1714 is the pressure that’s utilized in our new product, Simply Calm. And it continues to be in keeping with our different merchandise that we’ve launched, , and that it’s properly researched, backed by science, it’s lacking and wanted available in the market, and it’s thought-about a psychobiotic by all definitions. So it’s actually, actually thrilling.


Katie: And I believe that’s an vital level that it’s synergistic with the spore-based probiotic as properly as a result of then you definitely’re like sealing and also you’re additionally then supporting the mind aspect. And I do know we’ve had a complete dialog about this prior to now. I’ll make it possible for’s linked within the present notes, however are you able to give us only a transient overview? You talked about it a bit little bit of what separates spore-based probiotics from a whole lot of the opposite ones we see on cabinets as a result of this was new for me. I used to assume years in the past like, “Oh, you want refrigerated probiotics so that they’re nonetheless alive” and all these items, and also you helped me actually like perceive the distinction in what’s taking place in digestion once you’re speaking about these specifics spore-based probiotics.


Tina: Yeah. So the most important distinction with spore-based probiotics is their capacity to outlive the gastric system and arrive alive within the intestines. The vast majority of probiotics simply are delicate organisms. They aren’t capable of make that journey from the mouth by way of the digestive tract and into the intestines alive. Not solely does the physique temperature usually kill them, however the gastric system, the abdomen, may be very acidic. It’s meant to be a gastric barrier. And so, we all know that the spore-based probiotics has this endospore shell round itself and that enables it to reach of alive within the intestines. After which when it will get to the intestines, it truly has the power to remain there for about 21 to twenty-eight days, and it’s actually within the microbial surroundings. So it’s doing one thing completely different in your intestine than my intestine. And so, it’s actually unbelievable.


And like I stated, we’ve achieved many, many research on these strains, and one of the vital profound research we did was on leaky intestine or metabolic endotoxemia. And what that examine confirmed is that after taking these strains for about 30 days, it decreased the LPS toxins seeping into the bloodstream by about 60%. And this was with no different dietary or life-style modifications. It was, , given to in any other case wholesome faculty college students, which everyone knows what faculty college students do to their our bodies. So it’s actually an unbelievable… It’s so foundational to our well being as a result of once you’re sealing up that intestine lining and also you’re not permitting, , these toxins to seep into your bloodstream, it’s not creating that inflammatory response. So it’s a completely completely different class, very properly researched, and has been so life-changing for thus a lot of our clients. It’s been actually thrilling.


Katie: Yeah. I’ve positively… It’s the primary probiotic, and I’ve talked about this loads, that I’ve ever felt the distinction from, and that now’s a staple in our home together with just about your whole merchandise at this level, even for pets. However I’d like to go a bit deeper on the Simply Calm and this particular pressure as a result of I believe that is gonna be a complete new space of intestine well being that we’re simply beginning to perceive and I believe you guys are actually main the cost right here. And I additionally know from listening to from the viewers, ladies, particularly proper now, are battling nervousness and overwhelm and a whole lot of these items that we’re speaking about. So, stroll us by way of a bit little bit of like what’s taking place particularly within the intestine. And that’s so cool too that you just talked about that that is one in all… Like mainly what’s handed on from mom to baby, which we now know from analysis, many people might not have gotten an optimum begin with, relying on how we have been born, identical factor with our youngsters, relying on the beginning situation. I’ve been at a whole lot of births and issues like antibiotics can interrupt that course of, C-Sections can interrupt that course of, and there’s methods to assist mitigate these conditions as properly. However for these of us who’re already born, these are some ways in which we might help rehabilitate.


Tina: Proper. Precisely. Yeah. So this specific pressure, it’s bifido longum 1714. It’s so extensively researched and scientifically verified as a temper help product. It’s very new available in the market. We’re so enthusiastic about it. It’s new available in the market, however it’s truly a standard a part of our intestine commensal flora. It’s remoted from wholesome people. So this is part of our regular intestine flora. And one of many research on this bifido longum 1714 was performed by APC Institute out of Cork, Eire, and it’s one of the vital preeminent gut-brain institutes on the earth. And so they checked out samples of individuals with temper problems like nervousness and melancholy versus individuals who shouldn’t have these temper problems, and what they discovered is that individuals with no temper problems had excessive ranges of this bifido longum 1714 pressure.


So, , there was a four-week human medical trial that confirmed that this pressure decreased perceived stress, it improved reminiscence, it decreased psychological fatigue, it positively supported brainwave exercise, which is absolutely thrilling, and improved the power to deal with that occasional stress. So, , who wouldn’t need that at the present time? And one of many questions that one of many human medical trials needed to find out is how does the 1714 pressure truly translate as a psychobiotic into the modulation of stress perform and the brainwave perform? So, they mainly needed to know, can this pressure within the face of induced stress modulate cortisol and an individual’s perceived stress response and coronary heart charge? And normally, what they noticed is that this 1714 pressure decreased perceived stress and cortisol output, which is big. They know that this pressure is arresting that inflammatory biking, after which finally the HPA entry triggering slows down after which finally shuts down, after which much less and fewer cortisol and stress hormones are produced.


After which a lot of research truly have been achieved… These are human medical trials that have been performed on day-to-day stress in addition to massive stressors that influence brainwave functioning, which is absolutely thrilling. We all know that having excessive ranges of the delta and beta wave ranges is related to a heightened stress state. And so this examine confirmed a major lower in beta wave perform. And that is what’s thrilling, and a rise in theta wave perform. And, after all, we all know theta wave is related to that circulation state. You understand, once you speak about being actually calm, having actually good cognitive perform and, , not getting distracted simply. In order that’s known as the circulation state, and it’s measured by this improve in theta wave perform within the mind. And the examine confirmed that this probiotic pressure can truly alter mind wave perform. It additionally confirmed it may scale back psychological fatigue as a result of your mind is just not as infected once you’re in a greater way of thinking. And it additionally confirmed that this pressure improves coping mechanism and scale back the unfavourable feelings that usually come from stress. So the research are so in depth on the pressure, and it’s so thrilling to have the ability to carry one thing so new and so highly effective to the market.


Katie: And I believe that resilience piece is absolutely key as properly as a result of we’re clearly all gonna encounter stress that’s not going away nor ought to it. There’s truly a wholesome place for sure quantities of stress, however I really feel like that resilience can usually be the distinction, particularly as a mother for the times the place I get a ton achieved and I nonetheless need to cope with loads, however I’m not overwhelmed and I really feel like I’m productive and on prime of it, versus the times the place simply each little factor appears to simply amp up that overwhelm. And there’s been some superb books written about resilience and, after all, like methods we are able to use on a logistical degree in our homes, however I believe addressing the bodily aspect is absolutely vital and there haven’t been nice sources for that previously. It was form of such as you form of simply needed to attempt issues and check out to determine what labored. And definitely, we all know issues like a nutritious diet and decreasing inflammatory inputs makes an enormous distinction, however such as you stated, for these of us who possibly have already got had intestine irritation or mind irritation, taking one thing focused like this actually is a leg-up to coping with that and to feeling extra resilient which then lets you have got the vitality and the motivation to do all the opposite issues that assist as properly.


Tina: Proper. Completely. And we’ve to recollect, like attending to the foundation explanation for all of this. There’s a whole lot of merchandise on the market which can be getting, , placing a Band-Help on and serving to individuals make, , making them really feel higher, however attending to the foundation explanation for this irritation and this response is absolutely vital. And we’ve to grasp that what’s inflicting all of that is irritation. And so, we’ve to watch out with that, , concentrate on that and be conscious of that.


And so, yeah, then we determined to launch Simply Calm, which is absolutely thrilling, and it’s actually thrilling. This was such an vital product for us that we determined to really launch it below a brand new sub-brand known as Joot, J-O-O-T, which is form of thrilling. So we love the OO which truly, , it comes from the, , 007 James Bond and, , the double O is related to being superior, and boosted, and up-leveled. So , we even… Lots of people will say that OO is even fortunate. You understand, a whole lot of good model, huge iconic manufacturers on the market like Yahoo, and Google, and Zoom all have the double O’s. And so we took the J from Simply, and the T from Thrive after which we added the double O’s. And so the product is Simply Calm by Joot and it’s a Simply Thrive model. So we determined to do a complete model enlargement due to this product as a result of we all know it’s so critically vital for thus many individuals on the market proper now, particularly with the uncertainty of the world and the stress that we’re dealing every day.


Katie: And I really feel like from the analysis I’ve seen, creating intestine issues within the intestine is form of a long-term factor that occurred by way of the course of a lifetime usually. Though, usually we are able to, by way of beginning, enter with a lower than optimum microbiome. When individuals begin rehabilitating their intestine with issues like this, how lengthy sometimes is it earlier than they see outcomes or how fast does that course of occur when you’re actually targeted on it?


Tina: Yeah. So with the probiotic, we at all times say that, , it takes… Relying on what you’re experiencing or what you’re attempting to get at from the product, you often say about 30 days. You understand, generally individuals will see outcomes inside a pair days and a few individuals will take three months to see a end result. However for essentially the most half, I’d say on common, you’re taking a look at a couple of 30-day the place you begin to actually see some modifications and the intestine is… We all know we did a examine on the probiotic alone exhibiting that it confirmed a 30% favorable shift within the intestine after about two and a half weeks, which is big. I imply, you don’t discover any probiotic on the market that has that form of… I’ve by no means seen a examine like that, exhibits a 30% favorable shift within the intestine simply after two and a half weeks. After which, with the Simply Calm with the 1714 and the B pressure product that we simply launched, that will be, , identical factor in all probability about 30 days to 60 days. The examine that was achieved on the 1714 pressure was over a 30-day interval.


Katie: And I do know we’ll get these questions as a result of I do… Anytime we speak about a complement, which is who can take it and who can’t? Can youngsters take it? Can pregnant ladies take it? Any cautions round any of that?


Tina: Yeah. However there’s no different indications that… Bear in mind, this can be a regular a part of our intestine flora. So we’re meant to have this pressure in our physique. We at all times inform individuals, after all, in the event that they’re pregnant and so they’re nursing, to test along with your medical doctors, however nice for youths, youngsters want this, particularly on this, oh, my gosh, what they’re coping with now, it breaks my coronary heart. And simply to… No issues with youngsters, no contraindications that we’re conscious of presently.


Katie: And like your different merchandise, one factor I really like about your probiotics particularly is their warmth secure. They don’t need to be refrigerated, but in addition they are often put into meals or smoothies as a result of I’ve a pair that don’t swallow capsules but. Is it the identical with these? Can I add it to stuff?
