Ashley and Hudson Harris

Our story starts with bugs. During the birth of her son Hudson, LoveBug Probiotics co-founder Ashley Harris was put on broad-spectrum antibiotics as a preventive measure. Over the next few months both Ashley and Hudson started getting sick. Ashley began suffering constant migraines and noticed a weakened immune system. Her son was very colicky, had digestive issues and then right around the same time both Ashley and Hudson developed eczema. Frustrated, Ashley began a quest to discover what was happening to her and her son, and why. The culprit: bad gut bacteria. Doctors tested Ashley and found her symptoms were tied to a severe imbalance in her gut bacteria and that she had an array of digestive issues including candida, dysbiosis, and leaky gut. Her microbiome had very little of the good bacteria vital to good health – and plenty of the bad bugs.

After discovering both she and Hudson had an imbalance in their gut bacteria, Ashley prodded her husband, co-founder Ben Harris, to get his own labs done. He found an imbalance of good and bad bacteria in his digestive system as well. Research led them to the wonders of probiotics and, after taking them, they noticed a dramatic turnaround in their overall health.

Fascinated, and committed to sharing their newly acquired good gut health with the world, they jumped into serious research. Partnering with leading scientists, they set out to create supplements with only the best probiotic strains, delivering the most bugs to where they’re needed to do their work. LoveBug Probiotics was born!
