THE OLD ADAGE ‘YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT’ INCLUDES THE HEALTHY FUNCTIONING OF YOUR BRAIN AS WELL!
Brain function is directly related to our diet and gastrointestinal health. Poor diet or poor GI function leads to many imbalances in the brain, including the most intractable chronic conditions, such as anxiety, depression and even dementia.
Leaky Gut is a well-documented condition that causes inflammation throughout the body and in the brain can lead to many of these chronic conditions.
If your digestive system is not digesting food well or if your gut is leaking toxins into your bloodstream, this can result in problems with brain health.
Beneficial bacteria in our gut on the other hand, play a very important role in brain health. They have been shown to produce peptides that our brain relies on for proper function as well as compounds that are important in immune health. A deficiency of these bacteria or an overgrowth of more toxic types of bacteria can also impact brain function.
Exciting, clinically-demonstrated results have shown dramatic improvements in all forms of brain health by addressing these digestive system problems.
