Mood, Mental Health and Gut Health
Posted on September 08 2018
🌿 Think probiotics are just for digestion? Think again.
The gut, the brain and the nervous system are all connected. When you increase absorption of nutrients from food, as well as increase your body's ability to produce more serotonin - which is an important neurotransmitter, also called the "happy" hormone - your mood and overall mental wellbeing improve.
Probiotics also support detoxification of toxins and heavy metals, which can improve mood, as well.
Not only that, probiotics actually produce B vitamins in the body, which are vital for handling stress and anxiety.
A healthy gut = better mental health, naturally. 🌿
