Gut microbes make serotonin and other neurotransmitters as they breakdown the food you eat. This is huge because we were once sold the idea that these chemicals were made in the brain.
Gut Dysbiosis (bacteria imbalances in the gut) has been linked to depression, anxiety, ADHD, and schizophrenia.
So much science is behind this that we have a whole new world of treating mental illness called Psychobiotics. Using probiotics for mental health is the future🙌🏻
BUT- The quickest way to get your gut balanced is to eat REAL FOOD. Food you can pronounce without any added inflammatory oils like canola oil🤢
