Anxiety, Mental Health, and Your Gut Health
Studies have shown that anxiety, depression, and other mental health disorders can be attributed to your gut health1. 90-95% of the body’s serotonin, an important neurotransmitter and natural mood stabilizer, is synthesized in the gut. By taking probiotics, it can diversify the microbes and feed the beneficial bacteria. This can help to improve your mood and reduce your anxiety.
What is the Microbiome?
The microbiome is an ecosystem of microorganisms that inhabit a particular environment in or on the human body. Our gut microbiome consists of tens of trillions of microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, and viruses. They help us digest our food, regulate our immune system, protect against other bacteria that cause disease, and produce vitamins. They are also important in the maintenance of normal and healthy brain function.
