The gut-brain axis is an intricate communication network that links the central and enteric nervous systems, coordinating gut functions with brain processes. In other words - your tummy and brain talk to each other! It’s like a secret line where your gut and brain send messages back and forth. This pivotal connection, which has garnered increasing attention since the early 20th century, especially with advances in microbiome research, influences both emotional well-being and physical health.
The axis primarily operates through various channels, including the central nervous system (CNS) and the enteric nervous system (ENS). These systems convey signals via the vagus nerve, an essential component of the parasympathetic nervous system stretching from the brainstem to the abdomen, and also through neurotransmitters and metabolites produced by gut microbiota. Imagine it like a fast train carrying news between your brain and your belly. Enhancing this connection can be achieved with targeted dietary choices that soothe the nerves, improve gut health and support gut flora. These nutritional strategies can help maintain and optimize the gut-brain axis effectively.


What are nervines?

Nervines are herbs that have a calming, nourishing or soothing effect on the nervous system. They can help alleviate stress, anxiety, and tension, promoting relaxation and overall well-being.

How do they work?

Nervines work in the body by influencing the nervous system, specifically by modulating neurotransmitter activity, such as GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), serotonin, and dopamine, which play key roles in regulating mood and stress responses. They may also help regulate the stress hormone cortisol. By promoting relaxation and reducing stress, nervines can contribute to overall mental well-being and may indirectly impact other bodily systems, such as the Gut-Brain Axis.

How Does Unimaginable Latte Help?

Unimaginable Latte contains a blend of nervines that have calming and nourishing effects on the nervous system, potentially reducing stress and promoting relaxation. By supporting mental well-being, nervines indirectly contribute to a balanced Gut-Brain Axis


What are prebiotics?

Prebiotics are non-digestible fibers or compounds found in certain foods that serve as fuel for beneficial bacteria in the gut. They essentially act as food for probiotics, which are the live bacteria and yeasts that provide health benefits when consumed in adequate amounts. Prebiotics help support the growth and activity of these probiotic bacteria in the gut, promoting a healthy balance of gut microbiota and contributing to overall digestive health. Examples of prebiotic foods include certain fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes.

How do they work ?

When consumed, prebiotics pass through the digestive tract without being broken down by enzymes. In the colon they undergo fermentation by gut bacteria, producing short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) and other metabolites.These SCFAs, particularly butyrate, serve as a crucial energy source for colon cells and help maintain the integrity of the gut barrier. SCFAs can modulate immune function, reduce inflammation, and influence hormone secretion. By promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria and enhancing gut health, prebiotics contribute to overall well-being and may play a role in various aspects of health, including digestion, immune function, and even mental health through the Gut-Brain Axis.

How Does Unimaginable latte?

Each cup of Unimaginable Latte is crafted with prebiotics from chicory root. Prebiotics are known to nourish beneficial gut bacteria, promoting a balanced gut biome. A balanced microbiome is essential for proper gut-brain communication and overall well-being.


What is fiber?

Fiber is a type of carbohydrate found in plant-based foods that the body can't digest or absorb. Instead, it passes relatively intact through the digestive system, providing various health benefits along the way. Fiber comes in two main forms: soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber dissolves in water and can help lower cholesterol levels and regulate blood sugar levels. Insoluble fiber does not dissolve in water and helps promote regular bowel movements and prevent constipation. Overall, fiber is essential for maintaining a healthy digestive system, supporting heart health, and aiding in weight management.

How does it work?

Fiber absorbs water as it passes through the digestive tract, increasing stool bulk and promoting regular bowel movements. Soluble fiber, form a gel-like substance that slows down the digestion and absorption of nutrients, including carbohydrates and cholesterol, leading to more stable blood sugar levels and reduced cholesterol levels.
In the colon, fiber undergoes fermentation and can promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut while inhibiting the growth of harmful bacteria.

How Does Unimaginable Latte Help?

Unimaginable Latte has an excellent source of fiber in every cup. It’s about 27% of the recommended daily dose of fiber in just one cup. Fiber is important for digestive health, promoting regularity and supporting the growth of beneficial gut bacteria. A healthy gut environment is crucial for optimal gut-brain communication.
