Healthy guts create happy lives!

It is often said that you should follow your gut. This refers to trusting your instincts and intuition that help you make the right decisions whilst staying true to yourself. This is because healthy guts create happy lives!

Why? Your gut is your second brain! This is a statement by some medical experts because “the enteric nervous system relies on the same type of neurons and neurotransmitters that are found in the central nervous system and the brain in our gut, is in communication with the brain in our head; playing a key role in certain diseases in our bodies and in our overall mental health.” 

Connecting gut health to Brain health

Expanding on the connection between gut health and brain health (mental health). The majority of serotonin (“feel good” neurotransmitters) is produced in the gut and not in the brain.

This means that any disorder of the gut (e.g., inflammation-causing an imbalance between “good” and “bad” bacteria) can affect mental health in a negative way. Stress can also affect the brain and gut in a negative way and increases the risk of gastrointestinal disorders such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Inflammatory Bowel Disease, peptic ulcers, and gastrointestinal reflux disease.


The solutions for how healthy guts creates happy lives!

This all sounds pretty doom and gloom, but fear not! At Nature’s, we’ve got lots of options to sort out your stress and heal your gut from the inside out.


1: Our brand new Gut Balance CBD Probiotics: Probiotics are important in the management of mental health conditions and gastrointestinal disorders, but they’re also just a good supplement to take on a daily basis to promote optimum health.

2. Sceletium drops: Sceletium is an excellent broad-spectrum mood enhancing and emotion-mediating herb. It integrates mind, emotion and body and allows for deep body and mental relaxation. It calms obsessive thinking, is emotionally grounding and supports free expression of thought, feeling and speech.

3. Rawbiotics Gut & Rawbiotics Daily: As mentioned above, probiotics are a great way to keep the bacteria in the gut happy and thriving, which in turn keeps you and your mood happy and thriving! If you aren’t wanting to try our new Gut Balance Probiotics, we also stock the Rawbiotics brand in store!

4. Elevate Capsules: Our Elevate Capsules combine Sceletium (mentioned above), with Ashwagandha (a herb with great significance in Ayurvedic medicine). ​​Ashwagandha may soothe anxiety and promote relaxation and a sense of calmness. This effect comes from its phytochemicals, withanolides. They act as precursors to the hormones that regulate the stress response in the body. Together, they make a killer combo to support the functions of the body and mind.

5. Khula Libre: We stock the Khula brand in store too! A newly released local brand with a focus on botanical blends to help you thrive. Made from a carefully blended mix of mushrooms and sceletium, it’s great for your gut, your brain and your mood. Buy a bottle and create a cocktail with all the buzz and none of the alcohol!


Two healthy brains!

With the comprehensive list above, it’s almost impossible not to find something to sort out your gut, boost your mood, and head into the Festive Season feeling peaceful and happy!
