A ‘gut feeling’ isn’t just a saying; your gut truly is linked to your brain and emotions. A Gut Lover provides fibre to help your gut thrive and as a result, positively impacts your mood.
A healthy gut contains a variety of tiny organisms (including the well-known good gut bacteria), called the gut microbiota. These gut microbes can create neurotransmitters (brain messenger chemicals) and communicate with the brain – a link known as the gut-brain axis. A healthy diet directly influences the gut microbiota, and as a result, affects the messages sent to the brain.
Treat your gut to fibre from fruit, vegetables and nuts, and your mind will benefit too.

Potassium is inside all our nerve cells. By moving out and back into the nerve cells, potassium plays a vital role in action potentials, or the electrical impulses that send signals around our body. Put simply, we need nourish our body with potassium to support healthy nerve cells – and ultimately support a good mood.
