Hi Sophie, tell us about you and your work…
I’m a TV presenter, producer, writer and artist.
How did you hear about Symprove and how long have you been taking it?
I first heard about it through Ancient and Brave, who’s collagen coffee I love. I also noticed that so many people I follow on social media were raving about it. I started taking it about 4 years ago now. I can’t live without it.
What motivated you to get involved with Symprove?
I have a lot of gut issues, many of which I had normalized or simply explained away due to my disability. I assumed there was nothing I could do but I began to research ways I could attempt to control or reduce the symptoms through diet and lifestyle, and all roads lead to Symprove!
What does your morning routine look like?
Every day starts differently as my work varies from day to day but wherever I am I drink a litre of water first of all and then take a shot of Symprove. After that, it depends on my schedule. If I am off to work then I won't have much time to do anything more than get out the door asap but if I have a day working from home then I will take my time, make a coffee with added collagen and mushroom powder, listen to some music, guzzle water, have a stretch and ideally, have a work out.
Where did your interest in gut health start?
For as long as I can remember I was fascinated by how much my mood was dictated by my gut. As a paraplegic with double incontinence as well, I have had to make sure my bowels are under control, so I have had to take as many measures as I could to keep well and have routines and habits that support my gut.
Top tips for looking after physical health?
Move, however you want to, no matter what your ability, for at least 30 mins a day!
And your mental health?
As above! And, turn off your phone.
Why should people care about Symprove?
If you care about your mood, your energy, your sleep or your wellbeing, you should care. Simple as that.
Original, Mango and Passion Fruit or Strawberry and Raspberry?
All of the above!
Sip, slurp, shot or swig from the bottle?
All of the above!
