The Gut-Brain Connection

Our digestive system (Gut) is the site where our body absorbs the food and fluids we eat to be broken down into nutrition that can be utilized by the cells in our body and brain. It houses the majority of our immune system and is where our moods are balanced or destabilized. Feed your gut a minimally processed variety of healthy whole foods and you will likely experience good health. Feed your body highly processed fats, sugars, processed carbohydrates, pesticide laden artificial colors, chemicals, dyes, additives found in ultra processed foods and you will likely have poor health and be overweight. Our digestive system is teaming with a large variety of bacteria both good and bad. Stress increases bad bacteria and lowers healthy bacteria. Healthy bacteria protects our immune system and allows our bodies to break down the foods we eat into useable forms.

Common Influences to Gut & MH Imbalance

Improving Digestive Health 

Probiotic Rich & Gut Supportive Foods

Garlic

"Garlic is naturally high in inulin, a type of non-digestible carbohydrate or “functional fiber” that feeds the good bacteria in your digestive system. Basically, it acts as fuel for those bacteria to do their job better, which makes your gut function better overall."

Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids

 Essential fatty acids (EFA) are needed for normal sensory, cognitive, and motor function. Doco-sahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an EFA and essential for the growth and functional development of the brain in infants. DHA is also required for maintenance of normal brain function in adults. The inclusion of plentiful DHA in the diet improves learning ability, whereas deficiencies of DHA are associated with deficits in learning. DHA is taken up by the brain in preference to other fatty acids. 

Prebiotics

These are needed to help the gut maintain a healthy balance of good  bacteria  and decreases bad bacteria. Prebiotics serve as food for probiotics to form  healthy bacterial levels.  If your diet is low in these, you need a multi strain several billion CFU brand to help improve your gut balance.

Probiotics

Probiotics are live microorganisms that help provide digestive benefits because they stabilize healthy bacteria in the gut microflora when eaten or swallowed. Probiotics need prebiotics (their food source) to grow. Sometimes they can cause gut interactions / unwanted side effects like gas, bloating, or loose stools. Reducing the frequency or the dose of the probiotics typically can help decrease or eliminate these symptoms. are needed to help the gut maintain a healthy balance of good bacteria and decreases bad bacteria.
