Gut-Brain Connection

Did you know that your gut microbiome has a huge impact on your brain? Your gut microbiome affects your mood, happiness, motivation, and even mental performance. That’s because 90% of the serotonin, the “happiness neurotransmitter” in your body, is produced by the bacteria composition in your gut. Then there’s the “vagus nerve”, through which the bacteria in your gut is in constant communication with the brain. It’s an incredible dynamic of how your choice of foods can impact your thinking processes! That’s why the gut has been called the “second brain.” So boost your brain power today by eating a variety of fruits, legumes, vegetables, and whole grains.

May you enjoy abundant health,
