Is Brain Fog Caused By Digestion?
Can brain fog be reversed? The causes of brain fog can be numerous, but most of them ultimately come back to knowing why poor digestion leads to brain fog?
What's the origin of the term “brain fog” and what exactly does it mean? If you have ever had those bouts of feeling like you lacked mental clarity, couldn't focus your attention on a task at hand, lacking concentration, or simply a general sense of just not feeling completely dialed into your life, you could probably be classified as having a case of “Brain fog”.
The Delicate Balance Of Thinking And Probiotics
What exactly is healthy thinking? Is it simply thinking healthy or is it understanding how to walk the fine line of good gut health and good thoughts?
Before we answer that, we should look at how probiotics serve as the foundation from which your brain grows efficiently and how that good bacteria can serve as a protector for your brain as well. Once you understand the relationship between your brain (mental health) and your gut microbiome, you can see how important they are to the other.
Gut Microbiota And Cortisol
Can an imbalanced digestive system increase cortisol levels to become chronic inflammation? What are the effects gut microbiota has on cortisol levels?
If you are wanting to be in the most optimal health, you must know the importance of giving your gut microbiota the tools it needs to combat the constant cortisol production in our bodies that the standard American diet and lifestyle produces. Ultimately, it needs to have the tools to reduce chronic inflammation.
Is Serotonin Involved In Digestion?
What are neurotransmitters and what do they do? They can help to regulate many functions of the body, but most can't name 4 specific neurotransmitters. This is unfortunate because a healthy gut can work together with neurotransmitters to produce happiness or naturally produce those happy feelings normally sought after through the taking of pharmaceutical drugs.
If the term psychobiotic is new to you, I encourage you to listen to several of my previous blogs or podcasts to get caught up. In a nutshell, I touched on how certain gut bacteria can help arrange neurotransmitters in our brain to be naturally produced.
These podcasts are an extension of me sharing what I believe is the source to be healthy emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually: a strong gut.
