“I’ve been taking Zenflore now for about six weeks and I wish I had known about it during my stint on Dancing with the Stars. If anyone watched, they would have seen my terror – maybe I could have got to the finals with Zenflore! I think it’s safe to say that I feel a lot calmer now. The things I generally find stressful are the normal day to day problems that most people have to juggle. For example childcare, work-life balance, money, mortgages etc. I think we’re living in a world where it’s very hard to get the balance right.”
“I don’t want to go through any more of my life feeling as overwhelmed by everyday, normal things. So, that’s why I’m going to be sticking with Zenflore. It’s certainly worked for me, and I hope it will work for a lot of other people as well. I think it’s important to say that people have to go and see a professional if they have levels of stress that are totally insurmountable, but I think for most of us it’s just that every day stress that we need to manage – when you feel that you could cope a little bit better. And that’s how I feel I’m doing. I think I’m coping a little bit better. ”

John Cryan’s research is focused on understanding the interaction between brain, gut and microbiome and how it applies to stress, mood and immune-related disorders. He has edited three books including “Microbial Endocrinology: The Microbiota-Gut-Brain Axis in Health and Disease” and has also presented a TED talk on the subject.
Their work has shown that there is a direct connection between our brain and our gut. In scientific terms, the gut-brain axis is the two-way dialogue between the brain and the gut. Its main job is coordinating brain and gut functions, by transmitting information from the gut to the brain, and the brain to the gut. The vagus nerve is a key physical link that relays the information between the two, it is the largest nerve in the body, outside of the spinal cord, and 80-90% of the nerve fibres in the vagus nerve go from the gut to the brain.
Together Professor Cryan and Professor Dinan have recently published ‘The Psychobiotic Revolution’ – to critical acclaim. This ground-breaking book looks at the discovery that a person’s state of mind is intimately connected to their gut:
The gut produces 90% of the serotonin found in the body and scientists have found that bacteria can influence its production in the gut- this neuro-transmitter in the brain can affect a person’s mood and feelings of happiness and pleasure – It was discoveries like this that led to the research, that ultimately resulted in the development of Zenflore®.
Zenflore® was developed by PrecisionBiotics®, the company which also developed Alflorex®. The 35624® culture in Alflorex® is the only bacterial culture to have shown reduction of digestive issues in two well-controlled clinical trials led by scientists and gastroenterologists in the UK and Europe. As a result, it is the number one recommended culture by US gastroenterologists(3) and was winner at the Irish Pharmacy News OTC Awards of Best Natural Product 2018 and Best GI Product in for 2016-17.
Just one easily swallowed Zenflore® capsule is taken daily with or without food and at any time of the day, and no refrigeration required. – With added B vitamins included in each capsule, Zenflore provides a complete support.
Zenflore costs approx. €1 per day (€32.95 for a month’s supply) and is available from all good pharmacies and selected health food stores. To find out more, visitwww.
