This week another amazing article came out sharing even more research behind the connection between a healthy microbiome (the trillions of organisms that make up our gastrointestinal system) and good mental health! As you know this is totally up our ally (and we suspect it may be of interest to you too!).

We are just so excited to share some of the key points of the article with you!
