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 an expensive private good friend 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 each side collectively, which is a private ardour of hers. And after her second little one, she left her high-stress work behind to give attention to household. And now, after her personal well being journey and numerous analysis within the subject of pure well being, she discovered her life’s work, which is illness prevention and well being upkeep. And he or she’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 in the present day 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 usually a supply of numerous stress and different points that we’ve, and so many different areas. She’s very well-spoken on this. I realized so much. Psychobiotics is a brand new time period for me. I feel you’ll be taught so much, too, so let’s be part of Tina. Tina, welcome again.


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


Katie: Properly, I at all times love speaking to you, and it’s particularly enjoyable once we get to report it, and we’re gonna get to go deep on some actually enjoyable matters in the present day. However earlier than we do, to assist folks get to know you a bit bit higher, I’ve a notice in my present notes that I’ve witnessed firsthand, which is that you simply love to bop, particularly on elevated surfaces and particularly with a tambourine in hand. So should you 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 recognize what? I like music. I like listening to music. And I’m Serbian, and Serbian music is one thing that’s tremendous vital to me and I like it. 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 may be that’s elevated. That’s not essentially tied to being Serbian, but it surely’s simply one thing that I do. And I snigger as a result of considered one of my daughters has adopted go well with, and we feature that trait collectively. So, it’s enjoyable.


Katie: I like it. Yearly I do a factor that will get me out of my consolation zone, which up 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 battle. We’ll see.


Tina: Sure. I’d love that.


Katie: Properly, for the majority of what we needed to speak about in the present day, you guys have so many merchandise, and all people listening has most likely 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 in the present day, and I feel 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 simply 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. Properly, you already know, one of many massive core values that we’ve is that we solely launch merchandise which might be lacking and wanted out there. I imply, that’s once we launched the, you already know, spore-based probiotic, we had been the primary. We had been simply disruptors within the probiotic area, and we didn’t wanna simply launch any probiotic as a result of there have been so many. We actually wanna discover issues which might be lacking and really wanted out there. And given the truth that temper problems are off the charts proper now, particularly, you already know, even earlier than 2020, earlier than the pandemic, they had been already off the charts. Folks had been skilled a lot stress, significantly over the past two years. We have now 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 numerous the analysis on temper and what can we do to really get to the basis reason for it. And numerous researchers from a number of the largest establishments are actually beginning to check out that gut-brain connection. And I feel the explanation for that’s that whenever you have a look at psychiatric care, it actually hasn’t modified over the past, you already know, most likely 60 years. The identical class of medication have been used, that are the anti-anxiety meds, the SSRIs which might be used for melancholy. So, basically, the identical class of medication have been used for many years with minimal success. And, you already know, 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 prove the pure world has all these methods to handle the problem and to get to the basis reason for it.


And since the basis reason 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 recognize, we’ve heard folks say, you already know, the intestine is the second mind. Properly, actually, what numerous researchers at the moment are 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 centered on and are excited to, you already know, convey a number of the analysis behind it to our prospects and to convey options to them.


Katie: And I feel that’s an vital level. And as a caveat, I do know you’re feeling the identical means, however I feel docs go into drugs with a real want to assist folks. Each physician I’ve met has been…had that true coronary heart to assist folks. And I really feel like numerous them really feel as handcuffed by the system as lots of people do as sufferers. And I’ve heard even docs say, you already know, folks don’t have these points due to an SSRI deficiency. It may be a Band-Support, but it surely’s not wanting on the root trigger, to your level. And I feel that’s the place the very best outcomes are once we can mix the 2. And positively, there are occasions when folks do want conventional medical care. I’m an enormous proponent of remedy and various strategies there as properly, however I feel the intestine shouldn’t be talked about sufficient on the subject of psychological well being. And I’m so excited that you simply guys are coming into this dialog and actually educating about it. Are you able to clarify extra in regards to the gut-brain entry for individuals who aren’t acquainted with that time period and what it does?


Tina: Yeah. Completely. You recognize, the gut-brain entry, you already know, it mainly is the intestine and the mind are related by 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 complete 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 various ways in which these microbes are affecting the mind. After which, one of many first methods is thru this endocrine system. So, the cells inside 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 actual fact, 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 affect the mind. So, once more, it’s simply this communication between the intestine and mind is bidirectional. That is very properly documented. You recognize, now researchers are very a lot beginning to perceive this, and alerts 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 food regimen and life-style, you already know, 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 up 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 whenever you work on that and actually help your intestine, the readability, and focus, and power that come alongside from that. And I like that you simply introduced out the time period postbiotics as a result of I really feel like this may be a brand new phrase for lots of people. We’ve all heard about probiotics and numerous 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, but it surely actually helps to, like, tie that every one in of the way it’s not a one-way road in any respect, such as you stated, and the way they each help one another and the way that type of is a circle that may be in a optimistic path, or should you’re not supporting them, it could possibly type of go in a unfavorable path. 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 essential ones that we consider are short-chain fatty acids. And so, numerous just like the butyrate, all of some of these short-chain fatty acids which might be produced by the micro organism in your intestine are thought of postbiotics. And like I discussed, just like the precursors to hormones are additionally thought of postbiotics, they usually, 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, you already know, 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 nearly each facet of our general well being. And I can’t overstate that sufficient. So, it’s actually vital that we’re caring for 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 the whole lot appears to tie in there even like I’ve talked so much in regards to the emotional psychological aspect of well being just lately, and there’s so many cool research about how, like whenever you’re in a continuing state of stress or combat or flight, that truly is affecting your intestine micro organism instantly after which that has rollover penalties into your complete physique. And I’ve additionally heard you speak in regards to the time period psychobiotic, and that was a brand new one for me. So, are you able to clarify what which means?


Tina: Yeah. Truly, the time period psychobiotic has been…it’s type of new for everyone as a result of it was coined in about 2013 by two psychiatrists they usually mainly… What psychobiotic refers to is the pleasant micro organism that play a job 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, you already know, to go even again up a bit bit, the largest offenders to and the basis reason 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 aren’t problematic. They’re probably not problematic once they’re in our intestine. They change into problematic once they seep into our bloodstream.


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


So, you already know, this LPS is a large indication of Alzheimer’s illness. After all, that’s an inflammatory illness, after which identical with Parkinson’s illness. So, you already know, this kind of dysfunction that causes nervousness and melancholy is similar, and it’s all pushed by LPS toxins within the bloodstream. So, as an organization, that was considered one of our essential objectives, 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 whenever you cut 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 should you’re taking the probiotic alone, you’re midway there. You recognize, we already know that the probiotic alone is that primary 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, once 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 growing irritation within the physique and it’s, you already know, very, very dangerous. I’m positive you’ve talked about cortisol numerous instances, but it surely’s very dangerous, particularly to our mind as a result of it causes that irritation. So, you already know, 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 turned, how can we arrest these exterior stresses?


And the nice information and the place numerous our analysis has been specializing in is there’s a compound referred to as peptidoglycan, and it’s been proven this means to arrest these exterior stresses. And the fascinating factor is that peptidoglycans is handed from mom to little one whereas the kid is in utero. And I at all times am stressing about that. I’m at all times making an attempt to inform mothers who’re pregnant to be caring for their intestine as a result of all of those intestine micro organism and the great ones are being handed onto the kid.


So these peptidoglycans are referred to 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 might survive by the gastric system. You recognize, we talked so much in regards to the spore-based probiotics. They’ve that means, they’ve endospore shell round themselves and that permits them to get by to the, you already know, gastric system and to the…or get by the gastric system to the gut. And that’s what’s so distinctive in regards to the exopolysaccharides, is that they have that means to get by the gastric system. And so, bifidobacterium longum is a peptidoglycan, and so it’s this exopolysaccharide. And so, when it will get into the massive 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 according to our different merchandise that we’ve launched, you already know, and that it’s properly researched, backed by science, it’s lacking and wanted out there, and it’s thought of a psychobiotic by all definitions. So it’s actually, actually thrilling.


Katie: And I feel 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 an entire dialog about this up 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 numerous the opposite ones we see on cabinets as a result of this was new for me. I used to suppose years in the past like, “Oh, you want refrigerated probiotics so that they’re nonetheless alive” and all this stuff, and also you helped me actually like perceive the distinction in what’s occurring in digestion whenever you’re speaking about these specifics spore-based probiotics.


Tina: Yeah. So the largest distinction with spore-based probiotics is their means to outlive the gastric system and arrive alive within the intestines. Nearly all of probiotics simply are delicate organisms. They aren’t in a position to make that journey from the mouth by the digestive tract and into the intestines alive. Not solely does the physique temperature usually kill them, however the gastric system, the abdomen, could 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 permits 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 setting. So it’s doing one thing totally different in your intestine than my intestine. And so, it’s actually unbelievable.


And like I stated, we’ve carried out many, many research on these strains, and probably the most 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 lowered the LPS toxins seeping into the bloodstream by about 60%. And this was with no different dietary or life-style modifications. It was, you already know, 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 whenever you’re sealing up that intestine lining and also you’re not permitting, you already know, these toxins to seep into your bloodstream, it isn’t creating that inflammatory response. So it’s a completely totally different class, very properly researched, and has been so life-changing for therefore a lot of our prospects. It’s been actually thrilling.


Katie: Yeah. I’ve positively… It’s the primary probiotic, and I’ve talked about this so much, that I’ve ever felt the distinction from, and that now could be a staple in our home together with just about your entire 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 feel that is gonna be an entire new space of intestine well being that we’re simply beginning to perceive and I feel you guys are actually main the cost right here. And I additionally know from listening to from the viewers, girls, particularly proper now, are battling nervousness and overwhelm and numerous this stuff that we’re speaking about. So, stroll us by a bit little bit of like what’s occurring particularly within the intestine. And that’s so cool too that you simply talked about that that is considered one of… Like mainly what’s handed on from mom to little one, which we now know from analysis, many people might not have gotten an optimum begin with, relying on how we had been born, identical factor with our youngsters, relying on the start state of affairs. I’ve been at numerous 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 may also 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 out there. We’re so enthusiastic about it. It’s new out there, but it surely’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 probably the most preeminent gut-brain institutes on this planet. And so they checked out samples of individuals with temper problems like nervousness and melancholy versus individuals who don’t have these temper problems, and what they discovered is that folks with no temper problems had excessive ranges of this bifido longum 1714 pressure.


So, you already know, there was a four-week human scientific trial that confirmed that this pressure lowered perceived stress, it improved reminiscence, it lowered psychological fatigue, it positively supported brainwave exercise, which is absolutely thrilling, and improved the power to deal with that occasional stress. So, you already know, who wouldn’t need that these days? And one of many questions that one of many human scientific 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 lowered 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 various research truly had been carried out… These are human scientific trials that had been performed on day-to-day stress in addition to giant stressors that affect 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 recognize, whenever you discuss being actually calm, having actually good cognitive perform and, you already know, not getting distracted simply. In order that’s referred to 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 might cut back psychological fatigue as a result of your mind shouldn’t be as infected whenever you’re in a greater way of thinking. And it additionally confirmed that this pressure improves coping mechanism and cut back the unfavorable 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 convey one thing so new and so highly effective to the market.


Katie: And I feel 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 carried out and I nonetheless should take care of so much, 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 will use on a logistical degree in our homes, however I feel addressing the bodily aspect is absolutely vital and there haven’t been nice assets for that previously. It was type of such as you type of simply needed to attempt issues and check out to determine what labored. And positively, we all know issues like a nutritious diet and decreasing inflammatory inputs makes a giant 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 could have the power 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 basis reason for all of this. There’s numerous merchandise on the market which might be getting, you already know, placing a Band-Support on and serving to folks make, you already know, making them really feel higher, however attending to the basis reason for this irritation and this response is absolutely vital. And we’ve to know that what’s inflicting all of that is irritation. And so, we’ve to watch out with that, you already know, 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 beneath a brand new sub-brand referred to as Joot, J-O-O-T, which is type of thrilling. So we love the OO which truly, you already know, it comes from the, you already know, 007 James Bond and, you already know, the double O is related to being superior, and boosted, and up-leveled. So you already know, we even… Lots of people will say that OO is even fortunate. You recognize, numerous good model, massive 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 an entire model enlargement due to this product as a result of we all know it’s so critically vital for therefore 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, growing intestine issues within the intestine is type of a long-term factor that occurred by the course of a lifetime usually. Though, usually we will, by start, enter with a lower than optimum microbiome. When folks 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 centered on it?


Tina: Yeah. So with the probiotic, we at all times say that, you already know, it takes… Relying on what you’re experiencing or what you’re making an attempt to get at from the product, you often say about 30 days. You recognize, generally folks will see outcomes inside a pair days and a few folks will take three months to see a consequence. However for probably the most half, I’d say on common, you’re a couple of 30-day the place you begin to actually see some adjustments and the intestine is… We all know we did a examine on the probiotic alone displaying 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 type 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 might be, you already know, identical factor most likely about 30 days to 60 days. The examine that was carried out 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 discuss a complement, which is who can take it and who can’t? Can youngsters take it? Can pregnant girls 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 folks, after all, in the event that they’re pregnant they usually’re nursing, to verify together with your docs, 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 right now.


Katie: And like your different merchandise, one factor I like about your probiotics particularly is their warmth steady. They don’t should 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 tablets but. Is it the identical with these? Can I add it to stuff?
