As the weather gets warmer, it's time to emerge from our winter furs and comfort foods to turn a new leaf.

It's time to spring clean your health!

That means out with the old and in with the new! But new doesn't always mean you need to make drastic changes to your daily routine to be healthy. This new season could be a clean slate to begin building a healthier version of yourself, or even just a reminder to get back on track to revive your gut health. No matter the goal, the Kean Team is here to give you guidance on how to take action to spring clean your diet, mood, and sleep to gear up for sunnier days!

Achieving a healthy weight can be difficult. Fad diets, quick detoxes, and cleanses are enticing, however, our philosophy is that every individual has their own unique health journey, and the key to a healthy gut isn't a one-size-fits-all approach; especially when it comes to weight loss. Now is the perfect time to figure out what foods and diets work best for you! That's why we encourage you to take an at-home gut microbiome test to get down to the roots of what your body needs. By exploring your unique gut microbiome to be able to understand what health factors are working for or against your body.


After sprucing up your diet, one essential factor you cannot ignore is your mental or emotional health. We know that stress is inevitable in our daily lives, but how we monitor and manage that stress can be a game-changer. Incorporating healthy routines like a daily digital detox can help clear your mind. In addition, we’ve reached out to our favorite nutritionist Tina Brockett to walk us through how inflammation in the body can lead to stress and how it is all interconnected to our gut health.

Springing forward means you’re losing an hour of sleep. The average adult needs 7 to 9 hours to fully rest, but did you know sleep is actually quite active? While you’re dreaming, your body is working hard to forge memories and retain information from the day before. Adequate sleep also gives your body a chance to fight off infections, balance hormones, and heal damage.

However, lack of sleep or sleep deprivation can lead to many side effects that impact your daily life, like drowsiness or anxiousness. If you’re missing out on sleep, your gut may be the answer. We're giving you a crash course on how your bacteria can contribute to your body’s supply of neurotransmitters like serotonin and GABA. In addition, you'll receive our recommendations on how to get 'Kean' on your nighttime routine!
