We all know that serotonin is the feel-good neurotransmitter. (It’s not a hormone by the way, contrary to what many people believe.)
But did you know that 95% of the body’s serotonin supply is to be found in our bowels? There’s been considerable research linking gut health and depression so it makes a lot of sense that when our digestive system is compromised by conditions such as IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), it can adversely affect our emotional health.
POOR DIGESTIVE HEALTH IS LINKED TO DEPRESSION
It’s more than just being frustrated by our digestive discomfort. When the bacteria levels in our gut become unbalanced, this can result in Irritable Bowel Syndrome and other digestive disorders, which in turn affects the enteric nervous system resulting in mood instability.
We’ve found that the combination of The Other Option’s DIGESTIVE REMEDY™ and OMEGA-UP™ provides a highly effective natural solution for improving gut health as well as assisting with mood instability.
HOW DOES SIBERIAN PINE NUT OIL HELP?
Pine nut oil contains pinolenic acid – a key, active fatty acid that is unique to pine nuts. However, SIBERIAN Pine Nut Oil contains the highest levels of pinolenic acid of all the pine nut species. Studies have shown that pinolenic acid stimulates the release of digestive hormones CCK and GLP-1 which are known to be essential for digestion.
If your body’s digestion is inhibited, this prevents the absorption of important nutrients, and can lead to a decline in general health and immunity. IBS is a common condition which results in recurrent abdominal pain and diarrhoea or constipation, often associated with stress, depression and anxiety.

HOW DOES OMEGA UP HELP?
Inflammatory conditions are indicated in depression.
EPA (a 20-carbon essential fatty acid building block) helps the body synthesize eicosanoid hormones which help to reduce inflammation, and therefore offer a natural solution for fighting depression.
Clinical studies show that EPA is effective against depression when taken in high doses, specifically in a ratio of at least 6 times more EPA than DHA. OMEGA-UP™ boasts a 7:1 EPA:DHA ratio, offering the ultimate formula for feeling up!
“OMEGA-UP™ effectively alleviates my feelings of depression and lack of concentration within days of taking it! ”
Taking DIGESTIVE REMEDY™ Siberian Pine Nut Oil and OMEGA-UP™ together offers a powerful healing combination when it comes to digestive problems and depression.
