Probiotics for Vegans: Amazing Benefits for Mood & More
Most vegans know the importance of a healthy digestive system, but did you know that probiotics can also support your mood, too?
When you think of probiotics, you might think of yogurt or other dairy products, but here at Lifted Naturals, all four of our MOOD probiotics are vegan.
That means our capsule is veggie-cellulose (and not gelatin) and the probiotics are all fermented on plant-based substrates: often for us, pea protein and lentils.
Vegan Probiotics for Mood and Health
Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are beneficial to your digestive system. They can be found naturally in fermented foods like sauerkraut, kimchi, and kombucha. However, it can be challenging for some vegans to obtain the necessary probiotics from their diet, especially if they don't consume fermented foods regularly. That's where vegan probiotic supplements come in handy.
One of the key benefits of probiotics for vegans is that they support digestive health. Vegans may be at a higher risk of nutrient deficiencies, and probiotics can help with the absorption and assimilation of vitamins and minerals. Probiotics can also help support common digestive issues like bloating, gas, and constipation.
In addition to digestive health, probiotics can also support mood and immune function. Our gut is sometimes referred to as our "second brain" because of the strong connection between our microbiome and our mental health. Here at Lifted Naturals, mood support is front and center!
We’ve selected very specific strains for each of our formulas: probiotic strains that have been shown to support a positive mood. Additionally, a healthy gut microbiome is crucial for a strong immune system, and probiotics can help support that.
When it comes to choosing the best vegan probiotic, it's important to look for certain strains that have been researched for specific benefits. As mentioned earlier, Lifted Naturals offers four different mood probiotics that are vegan-friendly.
Mood Boosting Probiotic. is our top selling formula that contains a blend of nine different strains specifically chosen to enhance mood and support digestive and immune health. It also contains the prebiotic GOS, which further supports mood, stress, and gut health, making it a great probiotic for vegans!
Bifidus Mood Boost probiotic is a histamine-sensitive synbiotic (probiotic and prebiotic all-in-one) that supports mood and digestive health, without instigating histamine issues. It’s a very popular probiotic amongst our vegan probiotic customers, because it is histamine-friendly!
Mood Super Strains is also histamine-friendly and a great vegan probiotic, as it has 6 strains of probiotic known for their mood-enhancing benefits with a ⅓ of the formula being L Rhamnosus GG, which is a very prominent strain in the probiotic world.
Last but not least, SBO Mood Boost probiotic is a histamine-sensitive spore-based probiotic that supports immune and digestive health. It’s really great for those pesky digestive issues that have not been helped my other, traditional types of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria.
Adding Probiotics to Your Vegan Diet
Probiotics can be a valuable addition to a vegan's health regimen. Not only do they support digestive health, but they also have a powerful impact on mood and our immune system. Lifted Naturals offers several vegan probiotics to choose from, each with their own unique blend of beneficial strains.
