Meet The Mom Changing the World, One Healthy Gut at a Time
As Mother’s Day approaches, we think of the one person who’s always made us #1 in their life. From packing our lunches to keeping us on track in school and drying our tears when no one else could, our mom was our hero. Who else would take care of us when we were so sick, we couldn’t get out of bed? Our moms kept us healthy, so we could carry on each day of our busy lives. Moms know the importance of a healthy lifestyle. One mom is taking healthy living and wellness further. Meet Ashley Harris – a mom who plans to make America healthy again.
Ashley Harris has a passion for gut health. Her life-changing experience with a severe microbiome imbalance led to her crusade to help moms and their families improve their gut health and overall well-being. During the birth of her son Hudson, Ashley was put on broad-spectrum antibiotics as a preventive measure. Over the next few months both Ashley and Hudson started getting sick. Ashley began suffering constant migraines and noticed a weakened immune system. Her son was very colicky, had digestive issues, and then right around the same time both Ashley and Hudson developed eczema. Ashley was frustrated with her compromised health condition and began a quest to discover what was happening to her and her son, and why. The culprit: bad gut bacteria. Doctors tested Ashley and found her symptoms were tied to a severe imbalance in her gut bacteria. She had an array of digestive issues including candida, dysbiosis, and leaky gut. Her microbiome had very little of the good bacteria vital to good health – and plenty of the bad bugs.
Her doctors recommended that she and her son take probiotics to help improve their health condition. After taking them regularly, she noticed a dramatic transformation in their overall health. Ashley extensively researched the underlying benefits of gut health and found that the gut is actually the body’s second brain. Bad gut health can have major implications on one’s entire body from mood to memory to the appearance of skin and hair and so much more. A healthy gut is extremely important for overall wellness. In fact, about 70% of our immune system lives in our gut. Ashley learned that more than 70 million Americans suffer from digestive “gut” problems. Current lifestyles, poor eating habits, the environment and increased antibiotic intake have all contributed to an extreme imbalance in the microbiome where “bad” bugs outweigh the “good” bugs that maintain a healthy digestive tract.
Ashley’s discoveries led her on a quest to help others improve their imbalanced microbiome. She worked with some of the world’s leading probiotic scientists, and they set out to create natural supplements with only the best probiotic strains, delivering the most effective good bugs to where they’re needed to do their work. Today, Ashley is founder and CEO of one of the fastest-growing supplement brands, LoveBug Probiotics.
“Our microbiome is a delicate ecosystem that needs a combination of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ bugs to function normally,” explains Ashley Harris, CEO and Founder of LoveBug. “Probiotics are ‘good’ bacteria that live naturally in your gut. These microorganisms, when properly balanced, act to support your immune system, aid in digestion, support your skin, hair and keep everything in your body running smoothly. We created LoveBug to help people improve their gut health and overall well-being.”
LoveBug probiotics is a complete line of premium probiotics for the whole family to help achieve and maintain optimal gut health. Products range from adult health, pre-natal and post-natal, children and babies health. It features BIO-tract®, a patented delivery technology scientifically developed to be 15 times more effective in getting microorganisms past the stomach acid barrier and to their final destination in your digestive tract, where they do their health-boosting work. It also boasts formulas that are Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, Lactose-Free and Sugar-Free.
“Sugar feeds the bad bags,” continues Harris. “We wanted to create the most natural, effective formulas for optimal gut health for everyone in the family. LoveBug was created by a mom for moms. Moms have the greatest buying power and decision-making in the household. We know what works for our families. Just take a look at some of the other fastest-growing brands out there today, which were created by moms with a passion for healthy-living like the Honest Company by Jessica Alba and Goop – a great resource and media outlet for wellness created by Gwyneth Paltrow.”
