*Post in association with Zenflore
Life in the Shilton household has been rather chaotic of late; building work inside and outside of our home, busy weekends with days out and family time mixed in with work commitments as well as the general running of the household and ensuring the boys are looked after and cared for. It doesn’t leave much time left for me. Thankfully I’ve been trialling a new probiotic called Zenflore, which is a completely natural supplement, that helps to reduce the stress hormone cortisol, and to my surprise, it has really worked.
What is Zenflore?
Zenflore contains the unique 1714-Serenitas culture along with selected B vitamins (B12 and B6) to provide a complete support for your mind and body during busy and demanding times. I was pretty much sold after reading that sentence on the back of the packet. It is said to help support a healthy mind and combat stress-related fatigue which is what I needed ahead of such a busy few weeks!
Developed by PrecisionBiotics, the new psychobiotic Zenflore, has been clinically proven to reduce the symptoms of everyday stress, including tiredness, low energy, tension headaches and a weakened immune system.
As Zenflore includes the cultures which are naturally at home in the gut and are part of the family of bacteria given by mother to baby at birth. It gets to work immediately as it’s a live culture helping to send signals to your brain to lower the stress hormone.
Ever had a gut feeling?
Did you know there’s a connection between our brain and our gut? I’ve always wondered how the phrase ‘gut feeling’ worked and now I understand it. Thanks to the explanation of the gut-brain axis, which is the two-way dialogue between our brains and our gut. If you’ve ever said you have a ‘gut feeling’ or ‘have butterflies’ to explain how you’re feeling then this is all linked to the gut-brain axis. I know I have.
It is said that the bacteria in the gut can act on the gut-brain axis and influence gut-brain communications. Therefore as the gut produces more than 90% of the serotonin found in the body, this can affect your mood and feelings of happiness and pleasure. According to Zenflore, current research indicates that a gut with a healthy microbiota is a strong predictor of health and wellbeing.
How have I got on?
After reading the ingredients and finding out what Zenflore could potentially do for me, I agreed to the trial and for the last four weeks I have been trialling the supplement. On the whole, I’ve been taking the supplement with water first thing in the morning just after my breakfast. Some days I have forgotten to take the capsule until later in the day and to my surprise, I believe I can tell when I haven’t taken it.
Zenflore has had really positive effects for me. It has helped me tackle a potentially stressful situation with relative ease and my mindset has switched from ‘what if I fall’ to ‘what if I fly’ which is an incredible turnaround. I’ve been able to make decisions that I have put off making and react to situations with calmness instead of being the panicked het up Mum I have been in the past.
I’m at the end of my trial pack of Zenflore and I’ve already placed an order from Amazon* (You can purchase from PrecisionBiotics too) for the next months worth. It costs just £28.50 so less than a £1 per day and to me, it’s been worth every penny.
