Your gut microbes regulate and produce many hormones. Our happy hormone, Serotonin and GABA (regulates & improves mood) stem from the gut. These hormones help to calm the nervous system and switch off stress responses in the body. Without adequate production, stress, anxiety, depression and our mood will all be affected.
The Gut & Brain Connection.
Your gut, also known as your second brain, sends signals from your gut to your brain.
What you feed your gut and the health of the microbiome in it plays a crucial role in how you feel emotionally on a daily basis. The type of bacteria living in our gut can impact motility, digestive secretions, inflammation and even neurotransmitter production in our digestive tracts.
The quality of our gut microbiome drastically affects our mood. The microbiome in your gut produces and sends neurotransmitters to the brain which affects processes like memory, learning, attention, and emotional regulation. This is why people with gut issues generally also have low mood / mood swings and difficulty concentrating for long.
95% of our body’s Serotonin is produced in the gut. These are the hormones responsible for keeping us happy. When our gut is unhappy, it will send unhappy signals to your brain.
What we feed ourselves literally influences how we feel. By improving the quality of your gut, you can improve the quality of your mood. Get started today with our Done For You bundle and take yourself through the steps needed to not only improve your gut but also improve your mood.
