If you’re happy and you know it, thank your gut!
Digestive wellness is incredibly vast and there are so many factors at play to keep it strong and working well. In turn, your digestion impacts so much more than merely the organs your food passes through.
One surprising place your digestion rules? Your mental wellness!🧠✨
Research has found some surprising potential links between imbalances in the gut microbiome and mental health issues. Your gut is connected to nerves and messages back and forth with the brain constantly.
Butterflies in your stomach? A couple extra bathroom breaks when stressed? That lighter than air feeling you get? All thanks to your stomach and brain talking to each other. Even the happy hormone, serotonin is produced in your gut!
Your gut is the body’s second brain.
Just think, you’d be pretty worried if your brain was overrun by bad bacteria or chronically inflamed yet for many of us this is our gut on a daily basis! Yikes.
When your digestive system is out of whack you feel its effects everywhere:
💨Stomach discomfort (frequent gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain)
👚Unintentional weight changes
😰Mood swings, anxiety, and depression
