Gut Health and What it Means to Your Body

What is your Gut telling you?
People say that they've made the right decision by following their “Gut feeling” but does that Gut feeling also apply to the food you eat?
Making the right choice when it comes to what you're putting into your body can have many positive or negative effects on your overall mood. Besides the obvious that junk food can make you feel sluggish and fatigued it can have a huge impact on your brain as well, making it a big reason as to why your mood in general can alter. Studies have shown that a diet filled with refined sugars can actually worsen mood disorders such as depression.

Looks like your brain isn’t the one thinking…
Our Gut technically acts as a second brain. Studies show that 90% of our bodies Serotonin is (a chemical that has a wide variety of functions in the human body. It is sometimes called a happy chemical because it contributes to well-being and happiness) is actually produced in our gut. Research has shown that a healthy diet / lifestyle has done wonders to a person's mental health. It improves overall mood, symptoms of depression, and anxiety.
