â€œFoods that are high in fibre, which provide fuel to the gut bacteria, and reduced in refined sugars support a robust melange of bacterial species, which helps maintain the integrity of the gut wall, keep blood sugar in check, reduce inflammation, and manufacture all the important substances and molecules critical for brain health and function.â€? â€”DR. DAVID PERLMUTTER, BRAIN MAKER, 2015
Did you know there is a direct, integral relationship between the gut and the brain? The gut communicates with the brain through the enteric nervous system, via the amazing super-highway called the vagus nerve. The vagus nerve is a long meandering bundle of motor and sensory fibres that links the brain stem to the heart, lungs, and gut. Keeping the gut and vagus nerve gateway healthy impacts our mental health.
In other words, having a healthy, balanced gut microbiomeâ€”lots of happy, helpful bacteriaâ€”has a direct impact on brain well-being. Gut health plays a powerful role
The health and variety of your gut bacteria directly depend on the foods you eat.
