Why Gut Health Is Important for Your Body and Your Mind

The gut is composed of a whole host of microbes that affect your physiology and keep your body and brain functioning as they should.

As studies tell us, these gut microbes affect the way you store fat, how you balance levels of glucose in your blood, and how you respond to hormones that make you feel hungry or satiated.

The wrong internal mix can set the stage for obesity and other health issues later in life.

Scientists have also found that gut bacteria produce neurotransmitters that regulate your moodincluding serotonin, dopamine, and GABA.

Researchers have also discovered that a nervous system in your gut (known as the “second brain”) communicates with the brain in your head. It also plays a role in certain diseases and in mental health.

In other words, the wellness of both your body and your brain depend on your gut health.
