How Does Your Gut Health Affect Your Brain?
Many scientists and physicians have actually begun to refer to the gut as our second brain.
Your gut is a chemical factory that produces vitamins, digest your food, regulates hormones, excretes toxins, produces healing compounds, and keeps your body healthy. 400 times the amount of messages in your body come from your microbiome compared to your brain to your body.
The microbiome and the brain are really part of one whole brain, connecting what's going on in our body with what's going on in our head.
