Can Probiotics make you happy?


By now we have all seen the commercials on television and seen the articles about how probiotics are responsible for 70% of our immune system. That alone is a great reason to take a probiotic, but there’s more. New research has shown that probiotics are even responsible for our happiness!

We now know that 90% of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates mood, is produced in the gut. Further, researchers found that spore form probiotics, such as Thrive Probiotic, are the key performers in producing serotonin.

Spore form probiotics are known for their ability to produce key nutrients at the point of absorption, antioxidant production and survivability. Unlike most ‘probiotics’ on the market, these spores are incredibly stable, they survive both in nature and through our harsh gastric system.

Serotonin may be best known for its effect on happiness, but is also a key player in sleep and appetite regulation. Low serotonin levels can lead to a number of different conditions including; depression, aggression, ADHD, carbohydrate cravings, hyperactivity and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

So… Being that the gut is responsible for 90% of serotonin production, the gut is responsible for happiness, sleep, appetite and more!

Who would have thought a bunch of bacteria could be so powerful? Happiness, sleep, appetite and immune function are all controlled by gut health and the balance of bacteria.

So many of our daily activities (alcohol, processed foods, antibiotics etc.) lead to imbalances in the gut. If you only take one supplement, you might want to make it an all spore form probiotic!

Lucky for you, Thrive Probiotic is just that!
