Probiotics for Females: Nerves and the Stomach
You wake up, grab a quick breakfast, and get rolling on your day. It’s go-go-go until the end of the day. You're constantly rushing, problem-solving, and multitasking. By the time you get your ‘tasks’ done for the day, you're exhausted and barely have enough energy to think straight!
You're overwhelmed, stressed out, and to top it all off, your stomach is in knots. Sound familiar?
Nerves and the Stomach
If you're a woman dealing with stomach issues, the main culprit may be overall stress in your life. Thankfully, there's a natural choice that can help support you through some of these troubles - mood probiotics.
We all know the feeling of being overwhelmed with stress, and we also know how it can take a toll on our physical and mental health. It's especially true for women who always seem to have a never-ending to-do list. But did you know that constant daily stress could also lead to stomach issues and digestive problems? It's due, in part, to the gut-brain connection; the two way-communication between the gut and the brain that exists within our bodies. In this blog post, we'll dive deeper into this connection and discuss how probiotics can help support these issues.
Gut Health Mental Health
One of the significant benefits of having a healthy gut is the ability to deal with added daily stress. The gut-brain connection is a fascinating topic that tells us that the stomach and the brain are closely related. Therefore, an unhealthy gut can cause stress and mood issues in the brain. This means that if you're already stressed out, your stomach health could be making things worse.
Modern life can sometimes feel like a constant battle-field! Someone is -overhungry, someone outgrew their winter coat, someone has a splinter, someone needs help with their homework, someone can’t find their shin guards, and on and on and on it goes….
It's no wonder we’re often feeling overwhelmed and stressed out.
Probiotics and Mood
The power of the gut-brain connection? This is where probiotics come in. Probiotics are live bacteria that are beneficial to our gut microbiota. They help maintain a healthy balance of bacteria in our digestive system, which can lead to better digestion and absorption of nutrients. Studies have shown that probiotics can also help improve overall immunity.
Some of the best probiotics for women are offered here at Lifted Naturals. Our probiotics are specifically formulated with mood issues in mind. Our probiotics contain VERY specific strains that are beneficial for natural neurotransmitter and mood support. We understand that women have numerous additional stressors in their lives and truly believe that our probiotics can help women feel their best.
Feeling Good. Naturally.
In addition to taking probiotics, there are a few things you can do to help alleviate stress and improve digestive health.
First, my favorite “food tip” is to balance your blood sugar by including fat, protein, and carbohydrates at every meal and snack. This tip alone could change your relationship to stress, for good!
Also, engage in stress-reducing activities like yoga, meditation, spending time in nature, or going on regular walks in your neighborhood.
Creativity is also a great way to de-stress, and tap back into your inner genius and wonderment. If you struggle with finding creative projects that won’t leave you more stressed than before you started, check out the minimalist coloring books over at our sister company, Honeypot Publishing.
Mood Support and More
Dealing with stomach issues can be frustrating and overwhelming, especially when you're already dealing with a lot of stress in your life. However, taking mood probiotics and making a few lifestyle changes can help support some of your issues while also reducing your frustration. Remember that not all probiotics are created equal and that consulting a medical professional is always a good idea when considering natural supplements.
