Happy Gut, Happy You
We’re officially getting into the winter season. Mornings are brisk, the days are short, and the holidays are in full swing!
Like most people this time of year, you might be struggling with the endless parties, indulgent meals, and you swear everywhere you look there is a cookie or holiday dessert.
Gut health is a trendy topic. But there’s so much more that goes into having a healthy gut than just drinking kombucha and getting a colonic.
It’s all about balance when it comes to gut health. Our gut holds trillions of bacteria that help process food, produce nutrients and fight disease. When our gut is in tip-top shape, about 80-85 percent of bacteria are good and 15-20 percent are bad. We feel great, our body is strong and quick, we rarely get sick, our energy is consistent, life is good. The healthy bacteria are free to do their job with ease. They assist with digestion, produce disease-fighting antibodies, crowd out bad bacteria and produce certain hormones, vitamins, and nutrients.
When the harmful bacteria stage a revolt, they totally gum up the works and cause painful problems like inflammation and infection, which can then lead to health issues such as constipation, candida, allergies, arthritis, headaches, depression, autoimmune diseases and more.
Did you know that we have two brains? Yup, we are that smart. One brain is well known and we should all have one. Now guess where our second brain lives. It lives in our gut. Yup, our gut has a mind of its own.
Our two brains constantly communicate and they have a lot to say. Our gut communicates by creating and consuming the majority of our body’s neurotransmitters.
We all know serotonin, our “Happy, Happy” neurotransmitter. But did you know that over 80% of our body’s serotonin is made by our gut microbiome?
Any changes in the composition of our gut microbes has been related to significant changes in:
· Pain tolerance
· Cognitive performance
· Mental health
The composition of our gut and its activity are involved in all biological processes that compose human health.
When it comes to improving brain health and our well-being, the best way to start is by paying attention to the health of our gut.
