Mental Wellness has been misunderstood for a long time. New science shows that our levels of happiness vs. sadness, optomism vs. pessimism, togetherness vs. lonliness are not just all in our head- in fact, a key contributor to mental wellness is determined by what is going on in our second brain- our gut. MentaBiotics was formulated with specific strains of healthy bacteria (probiotics) and specialized fibers (prebiotics) that play an important role in your overall mental and physical well-being. 


MentaBiotics supports the growth and vitality of a range of friendly gut bacteria to increase the production of the “feel-good” neurotransmitters. In fact, 90% of our serotonin, the primary neurotransmitter responsible for happiness and mood, is actually produced and located in our gut.


Key ingredients in MentaBiotics have been clinically shown to:


60% Decrease in irritability scores
55% Decrease in anxiety scores
50% Decrease in depression scores
49% Reduction in overall distress


70% Increase in “good” bacteria*


Improves overall mood by increasing positive mood by 211% and decreasing negative mood by 105%


Clinically studied. Natural ingredients.


MentaBiotics is the first product of its kind that combines newly discovered specific strains of probiotics (good bacteria), prebiotics (encourages growth of good bacteria), and phytobiotics (protects good bacteria) in a premium all-natural dietary supplement that have been scientifically proven to optimize mental wellness.
