Why Your Mood Actually Controls Your Gut Health (and how to fix it)

Basic Green Thickie Recipe

Why Your Mood Actually Controls Your Gut Health (and how to fix it)Your gut, aka “inside your belly”, has been proven to be your bodies literal “second brain”.

For years, the medical world has been trying to figure out what causes our moods to change and what causes common problems that most of us face like stress, anxiety, and even depression. These are common problems, and we know they are linked to serotonin, but did you know that 95% of serotonin isn’t even produced in the brain?

Serotonin is actually produced in the gut.

What we put inside of our bellies is directly related to our emotional health. Our gut consists of bacteria and we need that bacteria to have a healthy balance or the rest of us will not be balanced including our mood.

Your gut and your brain work together, so if one is out of balance the other will be also. Have you ever had an upset stomach because your mind was stressed? Well, think about it, if it works one way it works both ways.

There have been many scientific studies that have linked mood problems to gut problems and vice versa.

Is your gut balanced with 85% good bacteria and 15% bad bacteria? That is the recipe for a healthy gut and a healthy mood.

The best way to make sure your body has healthy bacteria for your gut is to feed your gut healthy bacteria. Some symptoms of an unhealthy gut include gas, bloating, nausea, sugar cravings, and more.

The best way to make sure that your gut is getting the healthy nourishment it needs is through probiotics.

Probiotics can be in pill form like this, or you can get them right through your diet.

Excellent sources of probiotics include kefir and fermented or cultured foods and beverages.

Keeping a healthy gut in check will help you to digest food properly, absorb vital nutrients, and maintain a healthy state of mind aka your mood.

Of course, what matters most is the food that makes up the bulk of our diet.  One of the best ways to get a healthy gut is to eat an abundance of fruit and vegetables, especially organic fruit. 

I completely eliminated my IBS when I started a diet high in raw foods.  Why not take our 7 Day Lean Green Smoothie Challenge and see for yourself how much better your digestion is after 7 days?
