Mental health and mental illness are increasingly considered to be the same thing, but they are not. Everyone has mental health, just like everyone has physical health. The real question is, what can we do to optimize our mental health and live a life full of mental wellness?
"We combine ancient natural wisdom with modern scientific innovation to develop natural health products and programs based on our emerging science of MentaBiotics.
Our science is centered around the most recent discoveries on what is called the "Gut-Brain Axis." In fact, science now tells us that we all actually have two brains. The brain we already know about in our head, and the equivalent of another, equally important brain, in our gut.
Recent studies have revealed that our gut microbiome includes more than 100 trillion bacterial cells – outnumbering human cells by 10-to-1 (more microbes in the human body than stars in the Milky Way). Those gut microbes produce more neurotransmitters, like serotonin and dopamine than in the brain itself! These are the very compounds that shape how we feel – and mean that balance within the Gut-Brain Axis forms the very foundation of mental wellness. If you feel sad, down in the dumps, antsy, stressed out, or just plain "off" - it may not be in your head, it's probably in your gut!
Amare's product philosophy is not just about helping a depressed person to feel normal again, but is about helping the average person to feel amazing."
