IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™...
…you’re listening to a new Upgrade Spotlight episode with Omni-Biotic. You're going to find out how probiotics can do more than keep your gut microbiome in order—specific strains can help you manage your stress and regulate your body’s detox system.
The beneficial bacteria in your gut support essential processes in the body, such as digestion and absorption, immune function, detoxification, and brain function. But did you know that 80% of the immune system lives in the gut and 95% of serotonin is produced in the gut? That’s a lot for the gut to do!
Keri Glassman, MS, RD, CDN, joins the show to talk about one of her favorite topics—the gut-brain axis. Keri’s a registered dietitian, certified nutritionist, healthy cooking expert and author of four books. She also founded Nutritious Life, a lifestyle and media company and Nutritious Life Studio, an online education platform focused on nutrition, coaching, and business.
In this conversation, you’ll learn how Omni-Biotic’s unique delivery mechanism and multi-species, multi-strain formulations work together to upgrade your gut AND your brain.
The gut-brain access goes two ways, Keri explains. “Your brain is affecting your gut. Your gut is affecting your brain—and from everything. That's why it's so incredibly important to maintain that healthy microbiome and to have a healthy balance of good [bacteria].”
To target the gut-brain axis, Omni-Biotic developed special formulations called psychobiotics: one for detox, the other for stress. Then they put them to the test in clinical studies.
- Hetox contains eight beneficial bacterial strains. Clinical studies show improvements in liver function, cardiometabolic markers and inflammation markers related to liver health.
- Clinical studies show that Stress Release supports digestion and the gut flora during times of stress, reduces intestinal inflammation, increases emotional balance, cognition, and mood.
