In its first U.S. campaign, the Australian elevated beauty and wellness ingestible brand places a spotlight on the gut-mind axis during May’s Mental Health Awareness Month just ahead of Mental Health Action Day.

NEW YORK, May 13, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — In an innovative move designed to spotlight the often-overlooked connection between gut health and mental well-being, KAILO Nutrition is proud to announce its U.S. debut and partnership with supermodel, wellness advocate, and now, Global KAILO Ambassador – Ellie Gonsalves –  for Mental Health Awareness Month this May. Together, they are launching a campaign that emphasizes the critical link between the gut and the mind, an integral aspect of KAILO’s brand philosophy and product development.

According to NIH around 95% of the body’s serotonin (one of the key “happy hormones” that impacts mood, sleep, and digestion) is created in the gut. Central to this campaign is the introduction of the #AnxiousGirlElixir, an exclusive recipe created in collaboration with new ambassador Ellie Gonsalves alongside KAILO’s expert health practitioners and naturopaths to highlight the new “Feel Well” product. This elixir is not only designed to nourish the body and mind, but also to educate the public on the importance of the gut-mind connection. Crafted from ingredients like L-glutamine, Magnesium Glycinate, and Chamomile – known for their mood-enhancing and gut-health benefits – the elixir aims to provide a delicious, natural way to support mental wellness and physical wellbeing, from the inside out.


    • 1 scoop KAILO “Feel Well”
    • 12 oz cold alkaline water
    • 2 sprigs of mint leaf
    • ½ cup of ice

Directions: Combine one-level scoop of “Feel Well” with alkaline water, whisk vigorously, add mint sprigs and ice. Drink on an empty stomach first thing in the morning for best results.

“Understanding the connection between what we eat and how we feel mentally is a game-changer in the world of wellness,” states Ellie Gonsalves. “I’m so proud to partner with KAILO, a brand that truly understands and leverages this connection to help people feel their best. The ‘Anxious Girl Elixir’ is more than just a drink; it’s a statement about taking control of our mental health through mindful nutrition.”

KAILO is at the forefront of integrating cutting-edge scientific research into their product offerings, emphasizing the synergy between gut health and mental well-being. “Our entry into the U.S. market and  collaboration with Ellie Gonsalves during Mental Health Awareness Month, just ahead of Mental Health Action Day is a pivotal step towards demystifying the gut-mind axis for the general public and solidifying KAILO as a leader within the wellness space,” says Kristy Morris, Co-Founder of KAILO. “We’re dedicated to providing products that not only support optimal physical health, but also foster mental wellness, and this campaign is a testament to that commitment.”

Throughout the month of May, KAILO and Ellie Gonsalves will engage in a series of initiatives designed to educate and inspire. These will include interactive social media campaigns, educational content, and exclusive events aimed at raising awareness about the significance of gut health in maintaining mental wellness.
