Stitch’s probiotic is made of up Lactobacillus helveticus Rosell ® 52, Lactobacillus planatarum Rosell ® 1012, Bifidobacterium longum Rosell ® 175, as well as various antioxidants and minerals specifically to help build diverse flora in the gut. Taken once a day, the science-led probiotic can boost stress resilience over time, while supporting digestive and gastrointestinal health, and improving sleep quality. The probiotic is accompanied by the Stitch app.
Expertly designed by behavioral scientists, nutritionists and psychologists, the app delivers in-the-moment stress support, through helpful micro-habits, like guided intention-setting, reflective mindful practice and more.

Now, you might not be aware of this but humans, like all other animals on the planet have two brains: The three-pound greyish bundle in your head. And the other one, which you’re probably not aware of – in your gut. Emerging science has shown, the brain in your gut – also called the enteric nervous system – is made up of more than 100 million neurons and 100 trillion bacteria that help regulate everything from your metabolism to your mood. The gut constantly communicates with your brain through a network known as the gut-brain axis, which links the enteric and central nervous systems. Your gut and its overall health can determine your health and your emotional well-being. When we experience stress and stress-induced dysregulation, we often experience physical symptoms, like irritable bowels, loss of appetite or enormous mood swings. So how do we keep the second brain healthy – and in turn, improve our health and well-being? Stitch’s approach to building stress resilience involves a combination of a daily probiotic and easy-to-integrate micro-habits.
