Wellness, cannabinoids and mental health
Ever since its premiere back in 2016, Happy Belly has served as a true feast for the gut microbiomes of many a member of our OG Medicine Box tribe. However, as the decade drew to a close, our company was forced to switch gears, leading us to scale back and phase in our leading products from our early days for a brand new national audience. Now that we’re back in action with TWO new Shopify storefronts, we’ve also re-released Happy Belly, along with its 1CaB brethren in 100% vegan gelcaps. Our herbal-hemp extract formulation, now fortified with CBG and CBG along with the multipurpose red reishi and a host of tummy-enhancing herbs now goes down even more easily.
But as most OGs know, 1CaB isn’t just for your body — it’s for your mind as well. So for those of you who have NEVER used Happy Belly, some explanation of its creation and how it assists with your mental health is in order.
HAPPY BELLY = HAPPY HUMANS
Just as Equanimity was made for your bedside table and Vital Recovery as an all-purpose energy booster, Happy Belly was made for your dinner table. In our research, Medicine Box has learned that 90% of our serotonin is developed in our gut biome. We are quite convinced that at least some of this crosses through the blood-brain barrier. If so, then your gut biome lends as much to your overall mental health as a good night’s sleep does. Working hand in hand, Happy Belly alongside the rest of 1CaB is designed to create a mental homeostasis which leads to calmer, happier humans.
Think about the times you’ve had heartburn, or an upset stomach. An unhealthy gut biome has been linked to nausea, anxiety and other conditions that eventually target the mind. Medicine Box has always maintained that one should not have to suffer in order to achieve wellness. If you’re doing it right, taking a medicine can be an intrinsically joyous activity that people should look forward to doing. By using Happy Belly as an apertif, those who used Happy Belly back in the day gave some exciting feedback to us. One person would use the tincture to prime her digestion as well as to assist with the breakdown of her plant-based diet. Another person claimed it assisted her with her celiac disease.
However, as our company did a deeper dive into cannabinoid pharmacokinetics, I discovered some amazing properties surrounding the up-and-coming cannabinoid CBG. CBG has shown great promise in treating IBS and Crohn’s disease, and the entourage effect of different foods and herbs adds even greater potential to this molecule. Most recently, it’s also been shown to arrest the development of mesothelioma in vitrio. In addition, we’re also looking into re’ishi mushrooms, which have also been shown to reverse symptoms of obesity in mice, including weight gain and insulin resistance.
This combines of course with herbal allies like fennel, which can soothe the muscles of the gastrointestinal tract, the powerful antioxidant saffron and cinnamon, a spice that has gained recent popularity for its activity against stomach cramps, flatulence and indigestion. That’s why we often like to take it before any holiday meal. It’s a great way to keep the peace both within and without your own body.
However, any time you’re set to eat is a good time to make your belly happier. And with our news 100% vegan softgel, it’s never been easier to do so. So stock up today on Happy Belly, because the key to a calmer life outlook is definitely through the stomach.
