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 top. And I’m right here with a pricey private good friend and somebody whose work I deeply admire, that’s Tina Anderson of Simply Thrive probiotics, and he or she’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 baby, she left her high-stress work behind to give attention to household. And now, after her personal well being journey and a number of analysis within the area 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 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 in the present day 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 properly. We go deep on this and particularly the gut-brain connection, how the gut-brain axis is so necessary, how psychobiotics can affect psychological well being and resilience, how mind irritation is usually a supply of a number of stress and different points that we have now, 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 feel you’ll be taught loads, 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 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 individuals get to know you just a little bit higher, I’ve a word in my present notes that I’ve witnessed firsthand, which is that you simply love to bounce, particularly on elevated surfaces and particularly with a tambourine in hand. So when you don’t thoughts, simply give us just a little 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 might have witnessed that, haven’t you? Embarrassed to confess, however yeah.. You already know what? I like music. I like listening to music. And I’m Serbian, and Serbian music is one thing that’s tremendous necessary 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 snigger as a result of one in all my daughters has adopted go well with, 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 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 conflict. We’ll see.
Tina: Sure. I’d love that.
Katie: Effectively, for the majority of what we wished 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 necessary 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 only get some broad overview of just a little bit about it and why this was an necessary focus for you guys.
Tina: Yeah. Effectively, , one of many huge core values that we have now is that we solely launch merchandise which might be lacking and wanted out there. I imply, that’s once we launched the, , spore-based probiotic, we have been the primary. We have 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 actually wanted out there. And given the truth that temper issues are off the charts proper now, particularly, , even earlier than 2020, earlier than the pandemic, they have been already off the charts. Individuals had been skilled a lot stress, notably over the past two years. We have now 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 really affecting their bodily wellbeing.
So, we’ve actually delved into a number of the analysis on temper and what can we do to truly get to the basis explanation for it. And a number of researchers from a few of the largest establishments are actually beginning to try that gut-brain connection. And I feel the rationale for that’s that whenever you take a look at psychiatric care, it actually hasn’t modified over the past, , 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, primarily, the identical class of medication have been used for many years with minimal success. And, , psychiatrists have had their palms 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 difficulty and to get to the basis explanation for it.
And since the basis explanation for mind and psychological well being points aren’t essentially stemming from the mind, they’re really stemming from the intestine, and that’s why it’s so highly effective. You already know, we’ve heard individuals say, , the intestine is the second mind. Effectively, actually, what a number of researchers at the moment are saying is that the intestine is the primary mind as a result of the intestine is admittedly dictating a lot of what’s happening 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 have now targeted on and are excited to, , deliver a few of the analysis behind it to our prospects and to deliver options to them.
Katie: And I feel that’s an necessary level. And as a caveat, I do know you are feeling the identical approach, however I feel 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 number 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 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 individuals do want conventional medical care. I’m an enormous proponent of remedy and various strategies there as properly, however I feel the intestine just isn’t talked about sufficient in relation to psychological well being. And I’m so excited that you simply guys are getting 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, , it mainly is the intestine and the mind are linked 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 a variety 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 may be triggered by the microbes to provide 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 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 influence the mind. So, once more, it’s simply this communication between the intestine and mind is bidirectional. That is very properly documented. You already know, 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 way of life decisions like food plan and way of life, , the stress and the temper that we expertise actually have an effect on our intestine, after which, after all, what’s happening 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 observed whenever you work on that and actually assist your intestine, the readability, and focus, and vitality 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 could be a brand new phrase for lots of people. We’ve all heard about probiotics and a number 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 mentioned, and the way they each assist one another and the way that sort of is a circle that may be in a optimistic route, or when you’re not supporting them, it will possibly sort of go in a detrimental route. Are you able to discuss just a little 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 fundamental ones that we consider are short-chain fatty acids. And so, a number of just like the butyrate, all of all 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, and so they, mainly, are simply the byproducts of the micro organism in our intestine. And that’s why it’s so critically necessary 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, , 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 necessary 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 all the pieces appears to tie in there even like I’ve talked loads in regards to the emotional psychological aspect of well being not too long ago, and there’s so many cool research about how, like whenever you’re in a relentless state of stress or battle or flight, that truly 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. Really, 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 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 admittedly thrilling. And, , to go even again up just a little bit, the largest offenders to and the basis 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 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 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 once they’re in our intestine. They grow to be 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, site visitors, , preventing, , all these sorts of issues that we’re coping with frequently. So, the 2 sorts 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 together 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 scientific trial on leaky intestine and confirmed that, , 55% of younger wholesome faculty college students had a leaky intestine and didn’t understand 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 understand 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 larger ranges of hysteria, age-related issues. So, there was a research that got here out, I feel in 2017, that microbiome-derived LPS has been proven to be larger 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 similar with Parkinson’s illness. So, , this kind 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 all our fundamental 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, all the inflammatory markers come down. I imply, it was unbelievable what that research confirmed us. So when you’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 perform 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 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, , very, very dangerous. I’m certain you’ve talked about cortisol plenty of 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 understand how we’re lowering 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 a number of our analysis has been specializing in is there’s a compound referred to as peptidoglycan, and it’s been proven this capacity to arrest these exterior stresses. And the fascinating 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 caring for 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 necessary as a result of this exopolysaccharide really has a layer round it and that layer is what makes it extra resistant and resilient so it may survive by the gastric system. You already know, we talked loads in regards to the spore-based probiotics. They’ve that capacity, they’ve endospore shell round themselves and that permits them to get by to the, , 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 capacity 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 really 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 consistent with our different merchandise that we’ve launched, , 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 necessary level that it’s synergistic with the spore-based probiotic as properly as a result of you then’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 up to now. I’ll guarantee that’s linked within the present notes, however are you able to give us only a transient overview? You talked about it just a little little bit of what separates spore-based probiotics from a number 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 this stuff, and also you helped me actually like perceive the distinction in what’s taking place in digestion whenever you’re speaking about these specifics spore-based probiotics.
Tina: Yeah. So the largest 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 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, 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 really 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 mentioned, we’ve completed many, many research on these strains, and one of the 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 decreased the LPS toxins seeping into the bloodstream by about 60%. And this was with no different dietary or way of life 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 whenever 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 prospects. 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 just a little deeper on the Simply Calm and this particular pressure as a result of I feel that is gonna be a complete 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 fighting nervousness and overwhelm and a number of this stuff that we’re speaking about. So, stroll us by just a little little bit of like what’s taking place particularly within the intestine. And that’s so cool too that you simply 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 could not have gotten an optimum begin with, relying on how we have been born, similar factor with our youngsters, relying on the delivery state of affairs. I’ve been at a number 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 will 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 assist product. It’s very new out there. We’re so enthusiastic about it. It’s new out there, however it’s really a traditional 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 carried out by APC Institute out of Cork, Eire, and it’s one of the preeminent gut-brain institutes on the earth. They usually checked out samples of individuals with temper issues like nervousness and melancholy versus individuals who should not have these temper issues, and what they discovered is that folks with no temper issues had excessive ranges of this bifido longum 1714 pressure.
So, , there was a four-week human scientific trial that confirmed that this pressure decreased perceived stress, it improved reminiscence, it decreased psychological fatigue, it positively supported brainwave exercise, which is admittedly thrilling, and improved the power to deal with that occasional stress. So, , who wouldn’t need that at the moment? And one of many questions that one of many human scientific trials wished to find out is how does the 1714 pressure really translate as a psychobiotic into the modulation of stress perform and the brainwave perform? So, they mainly wished to know, can this pressure within the face of induced stress modulate cortisol and an individual’s perceived stress response and coronary heart price? And basically, 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 ultimately the HPA entry triggering slows down after which ultimately shuts down, after which much less and fewer cortisol and stress hormones are produced.
After which a variety of research really have been completed… These are human scientific trials that have been carried out on day-to-day stress in addition to massive stressors that influence brainwave functioning, which is admittedly 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 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 stream state. You already know, whenever you discuss being actually calm, having actually good cognitive perform and, , not getting distracted simply. In order that’s referred to as the stream state, and it’s measured by this enhance in theta wave perform within the mind. And the research confirmed that this probiotic pressure can really alter mind wave perform. It additionally confirmed it may cut back psychological fatigue as a result of your mind just isn’t as infected whenever you’re in a greater mind-set. And it additionally confirmed that this pressure improves coping mechanism and cut back the detrimental feelings that usually come from stress. So the research are so intensive on the pressure, and it’s so thrilling to have the ability to deliver one thing so new and so highly effective to the market.
Katie: And I feel that resilience piece is admittedly 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 really a wholesome place for sure quantities of stress, however I really feel like that resilience can typically be the distinction, particularly as a mother for the times the place I get a ton completed and I nonetheless need to take care of 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 only amp up that overwhelm. And there’s been some wonderful books written about resilience and, after all, like methods we are able to use on a logistical degree in our homes, however I feel addressing the bodily aspect is admittedly necessary and there haven’t been nice sources for that previously. It was sort of such as you sort of simply needed to attempt issues and take a look at to determine what labored. And positively, we all know issues like a nutritious diet and lowering inflammatory inputs makes a giant distinction, however such as you mentioned, 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’ve gotten the vitality and the motivation to do all the opposite issues that assist as properly.
Tina: Proper. Completely. And we have now to recollect, like attending to the basis explanation for all of this. There’s a number of merchandise on the market which might be getting, , placing a Band-Help on and serving to individuals make, , making them really feel higher, however attending to the basis explanation for this irritation and this response is admittedly necessary. And we have now to grasp that what’s inflicting all of that is irritation. And so, we have now 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 admittedly thrilling, and it’s actually thrilling. This was such an necessary 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 really, , 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 already know, a number 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 growth due to this product as a result of we all know it’s so critically necessary 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, growing intestine issues within the intestine is sort of a long-term factor that occurred by the course of a lifetime typically. Though, typically we are able to, by delivery, 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 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 already know, generally individuals will see outcomes inside a pair days and a few individuals will take three months to see a outcome. 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 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 may be, , similar factor most likely about 30 days to 60 days. The research that was completed 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 individuals, after all, in the event that they’re pregnant and so they’re nursing, to verify together 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 at the moment.
Katie: And like your different merchandise, one factor I like about your probiotics particularly is their warmth steady. They don’t need to be refrigerated, but additionally 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?
Tina: Completely. You can add it and blend it with meals. It’s not an issue in any respect. So it received’t lose its efficiency or something like that.
Katie: That’s superior. My oldest daughter has been lastly really taking your whole merchandise, particularly the K2 and the probiotic as a result of she’s attempting to get sooner for pole vaulting and to develop as a result of she doesn’t wanna be 5’2” eternally.
