The Gut-Brain Connection

Did you know that your gut and brain are connected?
In fact there is a nerve (the vagus nerve) that directly connect the two.
The vagus nerve acts as a communication pathway where information is continuously passed back and forth from the brain to the gut and vice versa.
I like to picture it like this…
Friend 1 (the gut) and Friend 2 (the brain) are having a chat over the phone (the vagus nerve). They continuously check-in on how the other is doing and if there is anything the other one needs.
What affects one, heavily affects the other (clearly they’re besties!)
Here’s the thing, around 90% of our serotonin (our happy hormone) is produced in the gut. So you can see that if your gut is not happy, then you’re not going to be feeling very happy, mentally either!
The gut-brain connection is undeniable!
If you are struggling with:
– Anxiety
– Depression or
– Mood swings
Then it’s time to support your mental health, by improving your gut health!
This beautiful, is something I would LOVE to help you with!
