Katie: Howdy, and welcome to the Wellness Mama Podcast. I’m Katie from and, 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 each side collectively, which is a private ardour of hers. And after her second youngster, she left her high-stress work behind to deal with household. And now, after her personal well being journey and loads of analysis within the area 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 along with her husband, and I’ve been utilizing and speaking about their merchandise for years.


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


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


Katie: Effectively, I at all times love speaking to you, and it’s particularly enjoyable once we get to document it, and we’re gonna get to go deep on some actually enjoyable matters at present. However earlier than we do, to assist individuals get to know you a bit of bit higher, I’ve a observe in my present notes that I’ve witnessed firsthand, which is that you just love to bop, particularly on elevated surfaces and particularly with a tambourine in hand. So if you happen to don’t thoughts, simply give us a bit of 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 got witnessed that, haven’t you? Embarrassed to confess, however yeah.. You already know what? I really like music. I really like listening to music. And I’m Serbian, and Serbian music is one thing that’s tremendous essential to me and I adore it. It touches my soul and for no matter purpose, one thing simply brings me to, like, tables, and I begin dancing on tables, or chairs, or no matter it is perhaps that’s elevated. That’s not essentially tied to being Serbian, nevertheless it’s simply one thing that I do. And I chuckle as a result of one in every of my daughters has adopted swimsuit, and we supply that trait collectively. So, it’s enjoyable.


Katie: I adore it. 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 12 months, it’s dancing. So perhaps this 12 months I’ll be becoming a member of you within the dancing struggle. We’ll see.


Tina: Sure. I might love that.


Katie: Effectively, for the majority of what we needed to speak about at present, 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 study extra about from you at present, and I believe it is a actually essential subject 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 might love to simply get some broad overview of a bit of bit about it and why this was an essential focus for you guys.


Tina: Yeah. Effectively, you understand, one of many large core values that we have now is that we solely launch merchandise which might be lacking and wanted available in the market. I imply, that’s once we launched the, you understand, 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 might be lacking and actually wanted available in the market. And given the truth that temper issues are off the charts proper now, particularly, you understand, even earlier than 2020, earlier than the pandemic, they have been already off the charts. Individuals had been skilled a lot stress, significantly over the past two years. We’ve got seen temper issues, nervousness issues at an all-time excessive. There’s one research 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 loads of the analysis on temper and what will we do to truly get to the basis reason behind it. And loads of researchers from a few of the largest establishments are actually beginning to try that gut-brain connection. And I believe the explanation for that’s that if you have a look at psychiatric care, it actually hasn’t modified over the past, you understand, most likely 60 years. The identical class of medicine have been used, that are the anti-anxiety meds, the SSRIs which might be used for melancholy. So, primarily, the identical class of medicine have been used for many years with minimal success. And, you understand, 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 basis reason behind it.


And since the basis reason behind 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 already know, we’ve heard individuals say, you understand, the intestine is the second mind. Effectively, actually, what loads of 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 operate that many medical consultants have been talking on and researching is that this unimaginable connection between the intestine and the mind. So, it’s actually been an space that we have now centered on and are excited to, you understand, carry a few of the analysis behind it to our prospects and to carry options to them.


Katie: And I believe that’s an essential level. And as a caveat, I do know you are feeling the identical means, however I believe docs go into medication with a real want to assist individuals. Each physician I’ve met has been…had that true coronary heart to assist individuals. And I really feel like loads of them really feel as handcuffed by the system as lots of people do as sufferers. And I’ve heard even docs say, you understand, individuals don’t have these points due to an SSRI deficiency. It is perhaps a Band-Assist, nevertheless it’s not trying on the root trigger, to your level. And I believe that’s the place one of the best outcomes are once we can mix the 2. And positively, there are occasions when individuals do want conventional medical care. I’m an enormous proponent of remedy and different strategies there as effectively, however I believe the intestine is just not talked about sufficient in terms of psychological well being. And I’m so excited that you just 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 conversant in that time period and what it does?


Tina: Yeah. Completely. You already know, the gut-brain entry, you understand, it principally 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 plenty 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 inside the intestine lining could 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 have now 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 impression the mind. So, once more, it’s simply this communication between the intestine and mind is bidirectional. That is very effectively documented. You already know, 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 way of life decisions like weight loss program and way of life, you understand, 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 observed if you work on that and actually assist your intestine, the readability, and focus, and power 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 is perhaps a brand new phrase for lots of people. We’ve all heard about probiotics and loads 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, nevertheless it actually helps to, like, tie that each one in of the way it’s not a one-way road in any respect, such as you stated, and the way they each assist one another and the way that sort of is a circle that may be in a constructive course, or if you happen to’re not supporting them, it may well sort of go in a unfavourable course. Are you able to discuss a bit of bit extra about postbiotics and the way that course of works?


Tina: Yeah. So, principally, postbiotics are simply byproducts of the micro organism in our intestine. And one of many major ones that we consider are short-chain fatty acids. And so, loads of just like the butyrate, all of these kind of short-chain fatty acids which might 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, they usually, principally, are simply the byproducts of the micro organism in our intestine. And that’s why it’s so critically essential that we have now 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 understand, 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 total well being. And I can’t overstate that sufficient. So, it’s actually essential 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 every little thing appears to tie in there even like I’ve talked lots in regards to the emotional psychological facet of well being not too long ago, and there’s so many cool research about how, like if you’re in a relentless state of stress or struggle or flight, that really is affecting your intestine micro organism instantly after which that has rollover penalties into your entire physique. And I’ve additionally heard you discuss 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 sort of new for everyone as a result of it was coined in about 2013 by two psychiatrists they usually principally… 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 principally the probiotic strains that assist enhance temper and cognitive operate. So it’s… And this, our new product, is taken into account a psychobiotic, which is absolutely thrilling. And, you understand, to go even again up a bit of bit, the largest offenders to and the basis reason behind all psychological well being points is principally that mind irritation. So mind irritation we now know causes this cognitive operate, issues like nervousness, melancholy, cognitive decline, all of those psychological issues, and psychological well being issues are all brought on by irritation within the mind. And so, we all know that the 2 largest offenders to mind irritation are LPS toxins, which I’ve talked about earlier than on podcasts with you, however principally 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 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 principally are these exterior stresses that we cope with day in and time out just like the concern, the social isolation, trauma, visitors, you understand, combating, you understand, all these varieties of issues that we’re coping with regularly. 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, you understand, 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 research, we did a double-blind human medical trial on leaky intestine and confirmed that, you understand, 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 understand, LPS is related to larger ranges of tension, age-related issues. So, there was a research that got here out, I believe in 2017, that microbiome-derived LPS has been proven to be larger in individuals with Alzheimer’s.


So, you understand, this LPS is a big indication of Alzheimer’s illness. After all, that’s an inflammatory illness, after which identical with Parkinson’s illness. So, you understand, the sort of 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 every of our major 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 if you scale back that LPS from going into your bloodstream, all the inflammatory markers come down. I imply, it was unimaginable what that research confirmed us. So if you happen to’re taking the probiotic alone, you’re midway there. You already know, we already know that the probiotic alone is that fundamental a part of mind well being and cognitive operate as a result of we have now 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 principally 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 rising irritation within the physique and it’s, you understand, very, very dangerous. I’m certain you’ve talked about cortisol a number of occasions, nevertheless it’s very dangerous, particularly to our mind as a result of it causes that irritation. So, you understand, 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 will we arrest these exterior stresses?


And the nice information and the place loads of our analysis has been specializing in is there’s a compound referred to as peptidoglycan, and it’s been proven this skill to arrest these exterior stresses. And the fascinating factor is that peptidoglycans is handed from mom to youngster 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 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 referred to as an exopolysaccharide, and that’s essential 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 way of the gastric system. You already know, we talked lots in regards to the spore-based probiotics. They’ve that skill, they’ve endospore shell round themselves and that permits them to get by way of to the, you understand, gastric system and to the…or get by way of the gastric system to the gut. And that’s what’s so distinctive in regards to the exopolysaccharides, is that they have that skill 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 heart. 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, you understand, and that it’s effectively 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 essential level that it’s synergistic with the spore-based probiotic as effectively as a result of then you definitely’re like sealing and also you’re additionally then supporting the mind facet. And I do know we’ve had an entire dialog about this prior to now. I’ll be sure that’s linked within the present notes, however are you able to give us only a transient overview? You talked about it a bit of little bit of what separates spore-based probiotics from loads of 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 in order 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 if you’re speaking about these specifics spore-based probiotics.


Tina: Yeah. So the largest distinction with spore-based probiotics is their skill 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 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 surroundings. So it’s doing one thing completely different in your intestine than my intestine. And so, it’s actually unimaginable.


And like I stated, we’ve achieved many, many research on these strains, and probably the most profound research we did was on leaky intestine or metabolic endotoxemia. And what that research confirmed is that after taking these strains for about 30 days, it diminished the LPS toxins seeping into the bloodstream by about 60%. And this was with no different dietary or way of life modifications. It was, you understand, 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 unimaginable… It’s so foundational to our well being as a result of if you’re sealing up that intestine lining and also you’re not permitting, you understand, these toxins to seep into your bloodstream, it isn’t creating that inflammatory response. So it’s a completely completely different class, very effectively 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 lots, that I’ve ever felt the distinction from, and that now’s 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 of deeper on the Simply Calm and this particular pressure as a result of I believe that is gonna be an entire 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 fighting nervousness and overwhelm and loads of this stuff that we’re speaking about. So, stroll us by way of a bit of little bit of like what’s occurring particularly within the intestine. And that’s so cool too that you just talked about that that is one in every of… Like principally what’s handed on from mom to youngster, which we now know from analysis, many people could not have gotten an optimum begin with, relying on how we have been born, identical factor with our children, relying on the beginning situation. I’ve been at loads 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 effectively. However for these of us who’re already born, these are some ways in which we will help rehabilitate.


Tina: Proper. Precisely. Yeah. So this explicit pressure, it’s bifido longum 1714. It’s so extensively researched and scientifically verified as a temper assist product. It’s very new available in the market. We’re so enthusiastic about it. It’s new available in the market, nevertheless 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 probably the most preeminent gut-brain institutes on this planet. They usually checked out samples of individuals with temper issues like nervousness and melancholy versus individuals who do not need these temper issues, and what they discovered is that folks with no temper issues had excessive ranges of this bifido longum 1714 pressure.


So, you understand, there was a four-week human medical trial that confirmed that this pressure diminished perceived stress, it improved reminiscence, it diminished psychological fatigue, it positively supported brainwave exercise, which is absolutely thrilling, and improved the power to deal with that occasional stress. So, you understand, 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 operate and the brainwave operate? So, they principally 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 generally, what they noticed is that this 1714 pressure diminished 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 plenty of research truly have been achieved… These are human medical trials that have been performed on day-to-day stress in addition to giant stressors that impression 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 research confirmed a big lower in beta wave operate. And that is what’s thrilling, and a rise in theta wave operate. And, after all, we all know theta wave is related to that movement state. You already know, if you speak about being actually calm, having actually good cognitive operate and, you understand, not getting distracted simply. In order that’s referred to as the movement state, and it’s measured by this enhance in theta wave operate within the mind. And the research confirmed that this probiotic pressure can truly alter mind wave operate. It additionally confirmed it might scale back psychological fatigue as a result of your mind is just not as infected if you’re in a greater frame of mind. 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 effectively 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 lots, however I’m not overwhelmed and I really feel like I’m productive and on high 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 believe addressing the bodily facet is absolutely essential and there haven’t been nice assets for that previously. It was sort of such as you sort 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 an enormous distinction, however such as you stated, for these of us who perhaps 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 may have the power and the motivation to do all the opposite issues that assist as effectively.


Tina: Proper. Completely. And we have now to recollect, like attending to the basis reason behind all of this. There’s loads of merchandise on the market which might be getting, you understand, placing a Band-Assist on and serving to individuals make, you understand, making them really feel higher, however attending to the basis reason behind this irritation and this response is absolutely essential. And we have now to know that what’s inflicting all of that is irritation. And so, we have now to watch out with that, you understand, pay attention to 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 essential product for us that we determined to truly launch it below a brand new sub-brand referred to as Joot, J-O-O-T, which is sort of thrilling. So we love the OO which truly, you understand, it comes from the, you understand, 007 James Bond and, you understand, the double O is related to being superior, and boosted, and up-leveled. So you understand, we even… Lots of people will say that OO is even fortunate. You already know, loads of good model, large 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 growth due to this product as a result of we all know it’s so critically essential 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, creating intestine issues within the intestine is sort of a long-term factor that occurred by way of the course of a lifetime usually. Though, usually we will, by way of beginning, enter with a lower than optimum microbiome. When individuals begin rehabilitating their intestine with issues like this, how lengthy usually 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 understand, it takes… Relying on what you’re experiencing or what you’re making an attempt to get at from the product, you normally say about 30 days. You already know, typically 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 few 30-day the place you begin to actually see some adjustments and the intestine is… We all know we did a research 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 sort of… I’ve by no means seen a research 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 understand, identical factor most likely about 30 days to 60 days. The research 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… Keep in mind, it is 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 they usually’re nursing, to verify along 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 at the moment.


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 drugs but. Is it the identical with these? Can I add it to stuff?

Are there another supportive way of life or weight loss program components that appear to even assist enhance the efficacy when somebody’s including these merchandise in? Something that they will try this additionally helps intestine well being or mind well being?


Tina: Yeah. Effectively, so one of many issues I at all times say is the probiotic is so foundational as a result of once we’re speaking about efficacy and absorption, you understand, if our intestine is infected in any respect, we’re not absorbing vitamins. So we have now to be actually conscious of that. So we wanna be sure that we’re taking the probiotic with no matter dietary supplements you’re taking as a result of you understand that that you must be taking, you understand, that you must be doing every kind of issues to assist your intestine so you can take in these vitamins. After which, we additionally know we wanna various microbiome. So I’m an enormous fan of intermittent fasting as a result of we all know now that intermittent fasting helps with range within the intestine. It helps by truly ravenous micro organism that permits you… Some micro organism truly must be starved to be able to proliferate by way of the intestine. So that might be one factor to just do to assist proceed to assist your intestine well being goes to help you take in vitamins and take in different dietary supplements that you just’re taking and to assist your way of life decisions.


Katie: Yeah. That’s been an enormous half for me. I believe, particularly for ladies, it’s like experimenting with IF and determining what’s your window as a result of I do know there’s lots of people who’re like ladies shouldn’t quick, and I’ve had loads of consultants on this podcast who say everybody’s fasting whereas they’re sleeping. Girls quick. All of us do it. It’s determining what your optimum window is, and perhaps if you happen to’re coming from a spot of thyroid illness or overwhelmed hormones or your postpartum, don’t actually limit your self to a brief window, however you’ll be able to nonetheless eat a ten to 12-hour window so that you’re nonetheless getting loads of vitamins, loads of energy, and your physique’s nonetheless getting a break, which is supportive of your liver, of your intestine, such as you stated. I’ve additionally seen… I don’t suppose they have been for everybody, however I’ve seen actually cool information on a three-day quick being a intestine reset as a result of it lets the intestine have relaxation. And I’m an enormous fan of…once I do brief quick, nonetheless taking the probiotics in order that they’re in my intestine getting to love rehabilitate with out competing, and I’ve observed large variations from that.


It looks like there’s additionally… And I do know we talked about this a bit of bit, very a lot a gut-skin connection. And I believe pores and skin well being is an enormous subject for lots of girls. For my youngsters, as they’ve gone by way of puberty, they’ve needed to not have zits. We’ve been centered on pores and skin well being fairly a bit and now as I’m getting older, I’m centered on making an attempt to maintain my pores and skin wholesome and never get wrinkles. Speak a bit of bit in regards to the gut-skin connection as a result of it does seem to be when somebody had as intestine dysbiosis, you usually see it expressed within the pores and skin.


Tina: Yeah. I imply. so many individuals will go to a well being meals retailer and say, “Oh, I’ve bought this pores and skin rash. You already know, what can I placed on it?” And it’s like, “Yeah. You must placed on some topical remedies perhaps to assist, you understand, the irritation that you just’re experiencing” or individuals will do issues for, you understand, zits or different pores and skin circumstances, however actually all of it stems from the intestine. So we all know, if in case you have a, you understand, a intestine or a pores and skin concern, that you must deal with…you understand you may have some dysbiosis in your intestine. I imply, it’s nearly assured. If in case you have something occurring along with your pores and skin, whether or not it’s zits, a rash, eczema, you understand, psoriasis, no matter it’s, we all know that that is stemming from an imbalance in our intestine.


So actually essential to be specializing in the intestine. There are big pores and skin connection. Like we stated, mind connection, immunity. Individuals overlook about that too. I imply, 80% of our immune system is present in our intestine lining. We have to be specializing in our intestine once we’re speaking about our immune system. So from pores and skin well being to mind well being, to immune well being, all of this stuff are…from coronary heart well being. I imply, you identify it. There’s actually no situation on the market that you may’t discover that isn’t related to an imbalance in your intestine. So I might at all times encourage any individual after they have a pores and skin concern, to be focusing before everything in your intestine. Like I stated, there could also be some lotions and potions on the market that, you understand, that may additionally assist, however we all know that we have to get to the basis reason behind at any time when we’re coping with something like that.


Katie: Yeah. And with all of the discuss of like how actually every little thing does return to the intestine, I really feel like that is one space that actually additionally pays dividends as a result of in case you are bettering your intestine well being, you’re additionally absorbing extra of the meals you’re consuming. You’re getting extra vitamins out of the identical quantity of meals, you might be getting higher sleep, which we all know is among the big keys to well being and there’s an enormous intestine connection there. I’ve seen, particularly within the final 12 months, loads of medical analysis popping out about issues like insomnia and sleep points being tied to intestine imbalances and the way there’s an increase in all of these proper now due to all of the persistent stress that we’re experiencing that’s inflicting extra intestine disruption. So such as you stated, I really feel like every little thing actually does return to the intestine.


And I do know, circuitously associated to guts and dietary supplements, however one trick I discovered as effectively is that people are very light-dependent being, and I do know you and I each love the daylight. And I discover that simply going exterior within the morning and getting a couple of minutes of morning daylight together with including this stuff in and specializing in the intestine is one other nice strategy to, like, enhance your resilience, give your self power, and actually assist enhance sleep at evening. And I do know that you just additionally don’t simply analysis and like speak about this life. You all in dwell this life and your loved ones lives this life and also you guys have a really wholesome way of life. So I’d love to listen to another issues which might be perhaps your private non-negotiables that you just do you for well being or perhaps your 80/20, just like the 20% of issues that you just really feel like provide the largest profit in your individual life.


Tina: Yeah. So the largest profit I believe for me is simply strolling exterior. I’m an enormous walker. I do the quick strolling. Typically I add a bit of jog in there, however I… And it’s bought to be exterior. And I dwell in Chicago the place the climate is terrible, particularly in January, nevertheless it doesn’t matter. I’m on the market. Except it’s actually icy and harmful, I’m just about on the market on a regular basis. It’s so good for me being in that, such as you talked about, the daylight and being exterior with nature is simply tremendous essential and that’s additionally tremendous essential in your intestine.


I additionally, each morning, do my deep respiratory. I take advantage of an app referred to as the HeartMath. I try this regularly. It’s non-negotiable as a result of it’s so essential. I understand how essential your… I do know that the mind impacts your intestine. I do all this stuff to, you understand, assist my intestine well being, and I’ve to calm myself down. Clearly, I’m tremendous busy, three youngsters, a enterprise that I’m operating. It’s sort of loopy every day. So, despite the fact that my youngsters are older, however I nonetheless must calm my mind down a bit of bit. In order that has been actually useful to me, too.


Katie: Yeah. I adore it. And I’ve seen you try this even once we’ve been at occasions or touring collectively, you rise up and also you go for a stroll every single day, and I’ll say, figuring out you in individual, you might be one of many individuals I do know who simply has seemingly boundless power. And am I remembering proper? You don’t drink espresso?


Tina: No. I imply, I typically will drink decaf as a result of I really like the style of it, however I simply can’t… The caffeine is an excessive amount of for me. I’ve sufficient power alone.


Katie: It’s a humorous factor. I really feel like a few of the most energetic individuals I do know don’t drink espresso. I’m like, “Hmm. I’m wondering.” But in addition to your level, what’s that quote that like the place you attempt to deal with all these costly biohacks, however on the finish of the day, like, return to the straightforward issues like hydrate, get daylight. Principally, we’re sophisticated home vegetation with feelings. Like we nonetheless must do this stuff. We have to be out in nature. And I believe that one will get missed for lots of people as effectively.


Tina: Completely. I couldn’t agree with you extra.


Katie: Effectively, I might additionally like to know, what’s subsequent for you guys. Are you researching any new merchandise that you may speak about but? I’m certain there are some which might be secret, however another enjoyable ones developing quickly?


Tina: Yeah. Effectively, you understand, we’ve put a lot power into our temper product, however we have now not too long ago began researching… Ironic that you just requested, is pores and skin well being product. So I’m excited to sort of speak about that perhaps subsequent time as a result of we’re not within the launch part but or something, however we’re getting there. So we’re simply continually looking for, like I stated, issues which might be lacking and wanted available in the market. And so we’re gonna be specializing in the pores and skin as a result of that’s additionally affected…individuals are being affected by pores and skin points at loopy charges as of late.


Katie: Yeah. Sadly, at the least the information I’m seeing, just about every little thing is on the rise proper now, which to circle again to the start of the episode, goes again lots to emphasize. So we’ve all been coping with an entire lot of stress the final couple of years, which hopefully we’ll see some aid from quickly, each from in our personal lives and societally, however the place are proper now.


A couple of questions I like to ask as we get near the tip of the time. And I do know I’ve requested you this one earlier than, however you can provide the identical or completely different solutions, and that’s if there’s a e-book or plenty of books which have profoundly impacted your life, and if that’s the case, what they’re and why.


Tina: Yeah. So I believe I had talked about earlier than “The 4 Agreements.” I do know it’s been used so many occasions in your present, nevertheless it simply actually…it’s such a easy, fantastic e-book. And I at all times say like there’s not a phrase wasted in that e-book. It will get proper to the purpose and has actually helped change my life and the way in which I have a look at issues. Even one of many 4 agreements is to at all times do your greatest and I believe…and which may be completely different on completely different days. And that was reminder as a result of I believe we at all times wanna do our greatest, however typically it simply appears completely different on completely different days. In order that was… It sort of launched me a bit of bit. After which, one in every of my different favorites is “I Can See Clearly Now” by Wayne Dyer. Wayne Dyer is unquestionably one in every of my heroes in life and positively, his books have been life-changing for me.


Katie: Yeah. You launched me to him I believe largely, and I’ve been actually having fun with studying loads of his stuff as effectively.

I believe that’s such a tough factor for mothers and us ladies who’re tremendous motivated and pushed and wanna get lots achieved, is we have now to provide ourselves grace that we will’t do every little thing and that once we do wanna make adjustments in our life, whether or not it’s well being, or funds, or, you understand, social life, no matter it is perhaps, that we simply take child steps and simply every single day, if you happen to simply take little child steps every single day, they make profound adjustments in our lives. And I believe that’s what’s helped me, is I took child steps and I used to be making an attempt to be affected person once we have been launching the corporate, and there have been a few years, you understand, to start with, that have been actually, actually onerous and that we weren’t making a ton of progress. After which… However I simply at all times took these child steps and subsequent factor you understand, you understand, we had this profitable firm that was being, you understand, talked about by individuals such as you and different well being and wellness influencers.
